made chicken cordon bleu (a kind of chicken roulade) for the first time for 4pax family dinner on 29.8.2019 and again for 5pax buddies lunch on 2.9.2019. ^^
saw an excellent recipe = creamy, crispy chicken cordon bleu on tasty recipe and decided to make it.
came out very tasty, very good consistent, tender chicken texture. the pounding tenderised the chicken.
pounded 1 chicken breast.
I didn’t have sliced cheese and ham.
used what i have in the fridge – sliced some dutch pepper cheese, some chorizo, and added one slice back bacon.
and rolled up in cling film and placed in the chiller for one hour.
then coat the chicken roll with flour, beaten egg, and lastly breadcrumbs before shallow frying on a thin film and hot oil.
browned on all sides and to make sure the chicken is cooked and not burned, i reduce fire to medium low and cover the pan. total time about 10mins.
it came out quite well, still can make some adjustments.
eg for the backbacon it is better to fry it so a slightly crispy texture would add to the taste and texture of the chicken roulade.
overall it was a great dish and a good appetiser or tapas to serve.
will be making more of this wonderful dish.
