How To Make Skillet Chicken Cordon Bleu
Sink your teeth into this succulent chicken cordon bleu, loaded with light swiss cheese and filling deli ham, for a delectably full meal!
Season the chicken with salt and pepper, to taste.
Place the flour in a shallow dish. Lightly dredge the chicken with flour on both sides, shaking off the excess reserving the flour.
In a small bowl, combine the chicken broth, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, and 1 teaspoon of the reserved flour, whisk until smooth.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Melt the butter and add 1 teaspoon of the olive oil and half of the chicken.
Cook for 2 minutes on each side, until slightly golden, then transfer to a dish.
Add remaining ½ teaspoon of olive oil and remaining chicken and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Set aside on a dish with the other pieces of chicken.
Reduce the heat to medium-low, then add the chicken broth mixture. Whisk scraping up any bits stuck to the pan, then simmer for 2 minutes to reduce slightly.
Return the chicken to the skillet, top each piece with a slice of ham and a slice of swiss. Cover the skillet and simmer medium-low for 3 to 4 minutes until the cheese melts.
Use a spatula and transfer the chicken to each dish, then spoon the remaining sauce over each piece. Enjoy!
