Oven Chicken Cordon Bleu


6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)

1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

6 slices of deli ham

3 slices aged Swiss cheese, halved

1 cup panko (Japanese) bread crumbs

cooking spray


2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 cup 2% milk

1/2 cup dry white wine

1/4 cup finely shredded Swiss cheese

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees; arrange chicken in a greased 13x9 in. baking dish.
  • Top each with 1 slice deli ham and 1/2 slice cheese, folding ham in half and covering chicken as much as possible.

  • For the sauce in a small saucepan, whisk flour and milk until smooth. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook or stir 1-2 minutes or until thickened.
  • Reduce to medium heat. Stir in the wine and Swiss cheese and stir 2-3 minutes or until cheese is thickened and bubbly. Stir in salt and pepper. Keep warm over low heat untill ready to serve.
  • Serve with chicken.
