So I decided to please him (and the Brunometer *wink*) by throwing together some homemade chicken cordon bleus. Now, the thing that had me the most nervous was the hammering of the chicken, since I don't have a kitchen mallet, but I improvised :)
(The pictures kind of suck today, sorry, we were too hungry to have our usual foodoshoots).
Oven-fried chicken cordon bleu
Servings: 3 (or 2 for him and 1 for me)
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
3 slices of ham (relatively thick)
3/4 cup shredded cheese (whichever kind you want, I used mexican blend)
3 strips of fat free philly cream cheese
1/2 cup flour
1 tbsp cajun seasoning
1/2 cup unseasoned bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 375 F.
Remove the toothpicks and serve with a light salad or steamed veggies, we thought rice would be too many carbs on a plate.
And the oh-so-missed Brunometer gives this dish a:
8.6 / 10
Not bad for my first meal after Diet Week, eh? ;)
