Chicken Cordon Bleu Bites
12-20 chicken breast tenderloins
4 pieces of Swiss cheese ( cut in to slices about 1 inch wide)
4 pieces of ham (also cut these about 1 inch wide and as long as the tenderloin)
12-20 sturdy toothpicks (make sure they are thick so we could hold the chicken together)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Egg Wash- 3 eggs whisked with 2 tablespoons water
2 cups flour
1 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 cups Panko crumbs (If you use Italian crumbs then you do not need to add the next 2 following ingredients)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup Dijon Mustard
1/2 Cup Yellow Mustard
2 tablespoons Mayo
1/4 cup honey
Combine all the ingredients for the dipping sauce in a bowl.
Place chicken tenderloin between two pieces of wax and beat with tenderizer for a few seconds. After you have tenderized all of the pieces place a strip of ham and then a strip of cheese on top of each tenderloin. Also add a dot of honey mustard on one end of the each strip. Then begin to roll your strip, once it has been rolled stick a tooth pick through it.
Make egg wash by whisking 3 eggs with 3 tablespoons with water.
In pan combine flour mixture and in another pan put bread crumbs in it.
After chicken is rolled up roll it into flour mixture then dip in egg wash. Last roll into the bread crumbs. Lay the Cordon Bleu bites on a oiled pan, lightly brush butter on to the tops of the bites or spray with Pam lightly. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes until they are golden brown and the chicken is cooked thoroughly. Serve with Dipping Sauce and Enjoy!!
