Chicken Cordon Bleu Recipe

This easy Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe is the perfect quick and easy dinner!  It’s made in the skillet and takes only 20 minutes.  


  • 6 small chicken cutlets or breast filets
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 slices of deli ham
  • 6 slices of Swiss cheese
  • ½ cup white wine (can substitute chicken broth if desired)
  • additional Parmesan cheese and chopped parsley can be used to garnish


  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. Combine the Panko bread crumbs and the Parmesan cheese in a small bowl.
  3. Coat the chicken with the bread crumb mixture pressing gently to adhere.
  4. Heat 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large, lidded skillet over medium-high heat.
  5. Add the cutlets (working in batches if necessary to avoid crowding) and cook 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through. (Wipe skillet before repeating with remaining chicken pieces.)
  6. Return all of the chicken pieces to the skillet. Top each piece of chicken with a slice of ham and a slice of Swiss cheese.
  7. Gently pour the wine over the top of the chicken and cover with a lid. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
  8. Serve with a side salad, rice, or pasta.
