HOMEMADE CHICKEN CORDON BLEU
6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
6 slices Swiss cheese
6 ham slices
1/2 tsp paprika
3 TBS flour
6 TBS butter
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 tsp chicken bouillon granules
2 TBS water
1 TBS cornstarch
1 cup heavy whipping cream
Place chicken breasts between two pieces of saran wrap and pound out until thin. Place a ham slice and slice of cheese on each breast fillet. Fold the edges over the filling and secure with kitchen string.
Place the chicken bouillon granules in a heat resistant cup with the water and microwave until dissolved.
In a small bowl, mix the flour with the paprika and coat the
chicken rolls. In a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat, cook the
chicken until golden brown on all the sides .
Add the wine and dissolved chicken granule mixture. Reduce the heat to low and slowly simmer until the chicken juices are clear and no longer pink in the middle.
