Chicken Cordon Bleu...My Way

I have big news..My husband and I found out we will be having our third baby!! I have been floating by the last few weeks. I will be posting more and I will keep all my friends updated. We are very excited. My first ultrasound is tomorrow! YEAH!

My husbands favorite all time dish is Chicken Cordon Bleu. This is my take on the wonderful classic.

4 Chicken Breast (Pounded thin)
Capicola Ham
Jarlsberge Cheese

1/2 Flour
1 cp Italian Planko Crumbs
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. Seasoned Salt (Lawrys)
1/2 tsp. black pepper

2 Eggs
Splash Milk
salt and pepper

5 Shallots, sliced thin
1 cp. Chicken broth

1. Take the thinly sliced chicken and add a few slices of ham and one or two slices of Jarlsberg Cheese.
2. Dip in the egg mixture (the eggs and milk whisked together with salt and pepper) and then into the bread crumb mixtures (the seasonings, Planko and flour mixed together). You can add a second coating if you would like.
3. Brown in a skillet with 2 TB of Olive Oil to seal the seam. Make sure you put it seam side down. (3 to 4 min. each side)
4. Add into a greased baking dish. Top with shallots and chicken broth. Bake on 350 for 45 minutes.
