Remix Chicken Cordon Bleu
Time: 25 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
French cooking with a twist! Remix Chicken Cordon Bleu takes the classic French dish and reformats it to make it even easier and speedier for the home cook. Chicken is piled high with creamy, buttery cheese and wrapped with savory ham before getting pan-fried into a crispy wonder. Remix Chicken Cordon Bleu then drizzles on a tangy mustard sauce to bring the most of the indulgent flavors. Served with baby greens, this is a complete meal in one dish that you can literally whip up anytime!
In a bowl, mix the fig jam, thyme, salt, and pepper.
On a cutting board, lay out a long piece of plastic wrap. Place the chicken on the plastic.
Brush 1/2 of the jam evenly onto the tops of the chicken.
Mound the cheese evenly onto each chicken breast.
Wrap 2 slices of ham around each chicken breast to cover the cheese.
Place another piece of plastic on top of the wrapped chicken breasts.
Gently pound the chicken with a mallet or heavy skillet until they are about 1/4-inch thick.
In a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil.
Add the chicken and cook until golden and crisp, about 3-4 minutes.
Flip and cook until cooked through at 165 degrees F internally, about 3-4 minutes.
Whisk the shallot, mustard, vinegar, and the remaining jam mixture in a medium bowl.
Slowly pour in the remaining olive oil, constantly whisking as you do so, until a smooth dressing forms.
Place the chicken on a plate.
Drizzle the chicken with the dressing.
Toss the greens with the remaining dressing.
Serve the chicken with the greens.
