Learn the secret on how to make these delicious Chicken Cordon Blue. Fried to perfection with crispy outer breading and juicy chicken inside! Make these delicious Chicken Cordon Blue. Fried to perfection with crispy outer breading and juicy chicken inside! | www.foxyfolksy.com Chicken Cordon Bleu is one of Armin’s most favorite dish. This is actually what he ordered when he planned a surprise dinner at the beach on our last night of honeymoon trip to Camiguin. It was quite romantic, really! So I only have really good memories associated with this classic dish.

Since I know that Armin loves Chicken Cordon Bleu, it is only natural that I would like to know how to make it. The easier version that I usually make is the flat, unbreaded one. I do it by cutting a chicken breast fillet in the middle but leaving them attached on one side, then insert the ham and cheese in between and close them using toothpicks. It’s not glamorous at all but it makes do for a quick and easy meal.

I tried it several times and it does not look like the one I know. The breading turns soggy and the cheese oozes out! I didn’t know what I was doing wrong. So I used my lifeline and called my mama and she told me the secret to a perfect Chicken Cordon Bleu.

Make these delicious Chicken Cordon Blue. Fried to perfection with crispy outer breading and juicy chicken inside! | www.foxyfolksy.comThe secret to a perfectly fried Chicken Cordon Bleu is to chill it overnight or at least some for hours before frying. This is done with the help of a plastic or aluminum foil wrap. Although, I would recommend using the plastic wrap over the aluminum because you can pack it really tight without breaking. I actually use the plastic wrap twice, first to form the chicken roll without the breading so that it has a nice, smooth, rounded shape before I cover it completely with the breading and then again after it is covered with breadcrumbs to chill. I forgot to take a photo to include it on the illustration above but this is really an important part!

  4. Place two plastic wrap on a flat surface and lay a chicken breast fillet on top of each wrapper. Top each half with ham and cheese. Roll up each breast fillet jelly-roll fashion by pushing the plastic wrap underneath from one side to the other like sushi. Try to make it as compact as possible.
