This post is brought to you by Foster Farms®. I created Chicken Cordon Blue Roll-ups on their behalf for a campaign where I received compensation.
Chicken is a dinner time staple in our home and we eat it several times a week in various different ways. I have a rotation of recipes I use from ones I’ve found online to ones I’ve been eating since I was a kid and Chicken Cordon Blue is a total comfort food for me. It’s a dinner I remember my mom making when I was a kid and one of my favorites. I would get so excited when she would make it because it’s so delicious.
Breaded chicken, warm salty ham, and gooey cheese all pair together perfectly for a dinner that is easy to put together and delicious. Another thing I remember from my childhood is Foster Farms chicken. It was mom’s go-to brand and I remember the yellow packing vividly. Not much has changed and now Foster Farms is my go-to brand for chicken. The only difference is Foster Farms recently got a makeover and added some new products to their line. Their logo and trio of quality products features a major revamp from the family-owned and operated West Coast chicken company. Foster Farms has Foster Farms Fresh & Natural and now Foster Farms Simply Raised and Foster Farms Organic fresh chicken products. Foster Farms is a go-to for me not just because I remember my mom using it during my childhood, but because their chickens are American Humane Certified, locally grown throughout CA, OR, and WA, and 100% natural.
Foster Farms recently introduced a new line of fresh chicken called Foster Farms Simply Raised which is great because the products contain no antibiotics, ever.They’re 100 percent vegetarian fed, American Humane Certified, 100 percent natural (minimally processed, no additives or preservatives, steroids or hormones), produced with no added sodium, and Simply Raised is locally grown throughout CA, OR, and WA. It’s a chicken I feel comfortable feeding my family and I know it’s a good, quality product.
Chicken Cordon Blue Roll-Ups
These roll-ups look complicated, but I can assure you that they are easy to make. I purchased the thinly sliced breast fillets and pounded them out some more with the flat
side of a meat mallet.
2 tablespoons milk
sea salt and fresh black pepper
1 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
½ cup all-purpose flour
4 Foster Farms Simply Raised chicken cutlets, pounded to ¼-inch thick
4 slices deli ham
4 slices Swiss cheese
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease a large baking dish.
2. Make a dredging station by mixing the egg and mustard in a shallow dish or pie pan. In a second wide, shallow dish combine both bread crumbs and flour.
3. Season the pounded chicken breasts on each side with salt and pepper. Place a slice of Swiss and ham over top and roll up beginning from the smallest end of the chicken. Place a toothpick in the center or on each end to help secure. Repeat until they’re all rolled up. Dredge one at a time by dipping into the egg mixture and then into the panko mixture. This will get a little messy, but use your hands to pat the crumbs on and make sure the whole roll-up is coasted in the panko mixture. Set in baking dish and repeat until all are covered with panko.
4. Bake for about 25 minutes, (internal temp should reach 164-175 degrees F). Remove from oven and allow to set 5 minutes. Remove toothpicks and enjoy as is or slice them up into pieces.
5. Serve with some Dijon mustard for dipping.Another great thing about this dish is leftovers can be sliced up and serves on warm Hawaiian rolls the next day!
Foster Farms Simply Raised is available now at major supermarkets and retailers.

I love chicken cordon bleu! I usually buy the premade frozen box of them. But this recipe looks easy and it's definitely more healthy. Will give these a try.

I have made Chicken Cordon Blue before and it tastes so delicious. I like the stuffed chicken with the cheese oozing out of it. I like this easy simple recipe. Thanks for sharing.
