Carrie Bradshaw of Sex and the City once said, “The only thing I’ve ever successfully made in the kitchen is a mess…and several small fires.”

I’m sure that people like me – aka the culinary challenged – can definitely identify with Carrie on that one.

Now that you get the idea, let me tell you what I can make in the kitchen (besides what is mentioned above).

These chicken cordon-bleu cutlets are a dish that is great for people who want to experiment in the kitchen, but are not experts at it.

As a busy student on the go, not all of us have time to plan out a nice sit-down meal. But sometimes, a burger from Burger King just won’t fill you up like a home-cooked meal.

With winter now upon us, there is nothing like a warm meal at the end of a long day of school and work to bring a smile to your face.

It would be nice to have the opportunity to sit down with your family or roommates and discuss the events that happened during the day.

Friends and family will love eating this delicious meal, and will beg you to bring it to the next get together.

Although these easy chicken cordon-bleu cutlets are made with minimal ingredients and minimal effort, it serves up maximum taste!

What You’ll Need:

-6 thin-sliced boneless, skinless chicken breasts

-2 eggs

-2 cups bread crumbs

-6 slices of ham (or prosciutto if you prefer)

-6 slices Gruyère cheese

-Extra virgin olive oil (to coat the pan)

-Toothpicks

What To Do:

– Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a cooking pan or cookie sheet with olive oil.

– Beat eggs and pour in a shallow bowl. Pour bread crumbs in a separate shallow bowl.

– After chicken is clean (use gloves if you don’t like handling the meat), coat each chicken breast in the egg, and follow with a coat of bread crumbs. Place on a plate and set aside.

– Take each piece of chicken breast and top it with a slice of ham and a slice of cheese. Roll the chicken breast widthwise so that the ham and cheese are on the inside. Secure with 2-3 toothpicks.

– Place each rolled-up breast on the pan, and bake for about 18 minutes until chicken is crispy.
