Betty’s Elegant Chicken Cordon Bleu

Cubes of Swiss cheese

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make an impressive and flavorful Elegant Chicken Cordon Bleu. This entrée is made by wrapping uncooked chicken around slices of ham and Swiss cheese. Then it is breaded and fried to a golden brown. When cut with a knife, the melted Swiss cheese delightfully oozes out of the center. This is an elegant and delicious entrée for a dinner party.

Ingredients:

2 whole chicken breasts, boned, halved, and skinned (I also trim off any fat.)
8 thin slices Swiss cheese
8 thin slices baked ham
2 eggs, well beaten
ground sea salt, to taste
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
½ cup fine, dry bread crumbs
4 tablespoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

In a small bowl, beat 2 eggs and set aside. Pound pieces of chicken breast thin and flat between two pieces of waxed paper with a mallet wrapped in aluminum foil. Brush both sides of each chicken breast piece with beaten egg. Put 2 slices of very thin Swiss cheese on each chicken piece so that it doesn’t overlap the chicken. Place 2 slices of very thin ham on top of the cheese so that it, too, doesn’t overlap. Brush the whole assembly with beaten egg and grind sea salt and black peppercorns to taste. Fold the long edges of the chicken slice over the cheese and ham slices, about ½-inch, then start at one end and roll the chicken like a jelly roll, making sure that the ham and cheese are completely hidden inside. Use toothpicks to keep chicken in place. Put each roll, as it is done, on a plate. Refrigerate the four chicken rolls for at least ½ hour. In a shallow dish, mix ½ cup dry breadcrumbs with 4 tablespoons cornstarch. Roll chilled rolls in beaten egg, then in cornstarch and breadcrumb mixture. Pat the coating on so it covers the chicken thickly and completely. Return to plate and chill again for at least ½ hour. Heat the butter and olive oil together in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Fry the chilled rolls in it, turning them as each side browns, until all pieces are golden. Drain on paper towels and serve immediately. This is a showy and elegant dish, and makes the focal point for a lovely dinner. I hope you enjoy it! Love, Betty ♥♥♥♥♥

Betty’s Mozzarella Sticks

2010-12-24 - Making Mozzarella Sticks - 0016

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Super Bowl Mozzarella Sticks. These are sticks of mozzarella cheese that are coated in seasoned crumbs and deep-fried until the coating is browned and the cheese is just beginning to melt.

Ingredients (for 16 mozzarella sticks):

8-oz. package mozzarella cheese, cut into 16 equally-sized sticks
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 cup cornstarch
1 egg, well beaten
1/8 cup water
¾ cup Italian breadcrumbs
¼ teaspoon garlic salt
peanut oil for frying

In a shallow dish, mix 1/3 cup flour with 1/8 cup cornstarch, and set aside. In a small mixing bowl, beat 1 egg, add 1/8 cup water, and set aside. In a shallow dish, mix ¾ cup Italian breadcrumbs with ¼ teaspoon garlic salt, and set aside. Coat each mozzarella stick, one at a time, by dipping it into the flour mixture, then the egg mixture, and then the breadcrumb mixture. Place on a plate and refrigerate for at least a half-hour. Heat about 1-inch of peanut oil in a heavy pot over medium heat until it reaches 330 to 350 degrees (F). Use tongs to dip coated, chilled mozzarella sticks into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown, about 20 to 30 seconds. Remove immediately from hot oil and drain on a wire rack. When all of the mozzarella sticks are done, transfer them from the wire rack to a nice serving plate, and serve with a dip of your choice. Hot Wing Sauce, Ranch Dressing, Blue Cheese Dressing, or ketchup are all good dips to use with Super Bowl Mozzarella Sticks. Enjoy! –Betty 
