Hebrews 2:8-9

. . . and put everything under their feet.  In putting everything under them,[c] God left nothing that is not subject to them.[d] Yet at present we do not see everything subject to them.[e] 9 But we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.

I am a puff pastry fan from way back when!  I first started using it when making breakfast danish.  Then I moved on to appetizers and today’s post … My Puffy Chicken Cordon Bleu.  The first time I made Chicken Cordon Bleu I followed the recipe to the letter.  It was okay and even a little bit impressive.  Well, I was impressed anyway 🙂  After starting my love affair with puff pastry I decided to give it a try with my Chicken Cordon Bleu.  This recipe is so simple but yet … well, impressive.  See for yourself.

My Puffy Chicken Cordon Bleu

  • 1 sheet Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry
  • 2 boneless chicken breasts
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 2 slices ham

Thaw pastry at room temperature for about 30 minutes.

Salt and pepper chicken and cook in olive oil, butter, or canola oil in a frying pan for about 10-15 minutes or until done.

Drain on paper towels.
Unfold pastry and place on a lightly floured board; roll out 1 inch  wider and 1 inch longer than beginning size.

Cut pastry shell in half and layer 1 slice cheese, chicken, ham, and second slice cheese.

Fold over top half to form a turn-over and press the 3 sides closed with your fingers.

Bake in 350 degree oven for 20 minutes until pastry is “puffed” and golden.

Serves 2.
Double/triple recipe as needed.  Quick, easy, and elegant.

Some Cordon Bleu recipes call for a sauce on the side.  I usually don’t use a sauce because the melted  swiss cheese provides such great texture and flavor with the meat that I don’t think a sauce is needed.  If you want something on the side a mushroom sauce or a supreme sauce would work nicely.

Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry is found in the frozen food freezers.
