Cordon Bleu

Aug 30, 2012 by

The term “Cordon Bleu” (by itself) relates to a special order of French knights. Presumably, by association, cordon bleu as it relates to recipes (as in, chicken cordon bleu…boneless breast of chicken wrapped around cheese and thinly sliced ham) also originated in France as dishes of distinguished classes. Food historians tell us the notion is debatable.

On the other hand? Recipes are not invented. They evolve. Culinary evidence confirms roulades and bracioline composed of veal/chicken, ham and cheese were favored in centuries past by several cultures and cuisines. Most notably: Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, and Italy. Recipes (and recipe names) varied according local tastes and language. Italian-inspired recipes generally feature prosciutto (ham) and Parmesan (cheese). “Cordon bleu,” as we Americans know it today, first surfaced in the early 1960s. Our country’s culinary interpretation parlayed prosciutto for thinly sliced deli ham and Parmesan for mozzerella, Gruyere, or Swiss cheese. Old World masterpiece going with the flow. The perfect American convergence. Of course? The timing was perfect. Source of info from foodtimeline.org

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breast
  • 4 slices of Gouda Cheese
  • 4 slices of ham
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • all season
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cup of bread crumbs
  • canola oil
For the Hollandaise Sauce
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Pinch fine salt
  • Pinch white pepper
  • Pinch paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 stick melted butter

Instructions

  1. Butterfly the chicken breast. Don’t cut it all the way through. Put 1 slice of Gouda Cheese and 1 slice of ham in the chicken breast, and close it. Season with seasoned salt, or any seasoning you prefer.
  2. Dip the chicken breast in the flour.
  3. Dip the chicken breast in the egg wash (egg mixed with water)
  4. Dip the chicken breast in the bread crumbs
  5. Heat the canola oil to 375F (medium high on electric stove 7) and fry the chicken breast on each side. That shouldn’t take more then 3 minutes. When all the chicken breast are fried put in a preheated 350F oven for 20 minutes.
  6. In the meantime you can make the Hollandaise Sauce the following way. Place the egg yolk in a food processor and add a pinch of salt, white pepper, paprika, the lemon juice and hot sauce. Place the melted butter into the food processor very slowly and turn the food processor on slow. If the sauce is not thick enough add another egg yolk and to thin it out add warm water. You don’t have to eat the cordon bleu with the Hollandaise Sauce it taste good without it to.

Chicken Parmesan

May 20, 2012 by

Chicken Parmesan, chicken parmigiana, or (Italian Pollo alla parmigiana) is a popular Italian dish. It is made up of a chicken breast covered in bread crumbs and topped with tomato sauce and mozzarella. The chicken may be baked or fried. It is always served over spaghetti. Some variations of the traditional recipe may call for the use of Parmigiano-Reggiano (parmesan cheese) in addition to, or as a substitute for, mozzarella. This may reflect a confused belief that the dish is so-named because it contains Parmesan cheese; in fact both the dish and the cheese are (separately) named for the Parma region of Italy.

The “Parma” in Australia is a very popular pub meal often served with a beer. for normally $10 AUD you can buy a “pot n’ Parma” for lunch. In some Australian states groups of Chicken Parmigiana eaters have started clubs such as CPAS (Chicken Parma Appreciation Society). These groups are mostly male dominated.

I made this dish with Alfredo Sauce and Marinara Sauce. Which ever one you prefer they are both delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs, if you don’t have that just use the regular bread crumbs and add 1 tbsp Italian seasonings
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper
  • 3 boneless chicken breasts and cut in half.
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cups of Tomato Sauce like marinara sauce or get the tomatoes out of a can.
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. Combine breadcrumbs, flour, and ground red pepper in a small bowl, and set aside.
  2. Cut the chicken breast in 2. Place chicken in ziplock bag, and flatten to 1/4-inch thickness, using a meat mallet or whatever works for you.
  3. Dip 1 chicken breast in egg, and coat with breadcrumb mixture. Dip again in egg mixture, and coat again in breadcrumb mixture.
  4. Cook chicken in hot olive oil over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until done.
  5. Put 1 cup of tomato sauce in the pan and place chicken breasts in a single layer in the baking dish. Top evenly with parmesan cheese, then tomato Sauce. Top it off with mozarella cheese. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes or until cheeses melt.
