6 breast half, bone and skin removed (blank)s skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

½ cup dry white wine
1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules

How to make Chicken Cordon Bleu

Step 1: Use a mallet to pound the chicken breasts if they are too thick. Stuff the chicken pieces about half-inch on every side with a slice of ham and cheese. Seal the chicken breasts by folding the sides and lock each with toothpicks.

Step 2: Mix the flour and paprika in a small mixing bowl until incorporated.

Step 3: Coat each of the stuffed chicken breasts with the flour mixture.

Step 4: Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Step 5: Cook the chicken breasts on each side until brown and crispy.

Step 6: Pour the bouillon followed by wine into the skillet. Simmer for about 30 minutes, covered, on low heat, or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked.

Step 7: Take the toothpicks out and transfer the cordon bleu on a clean plate. Allow them to cool at room temperature.

Step 8: Combine the cornstarch and sour cream in a small mixing bowl until well mixed. Add this to the skillet and continue to cook until the sauce has thickened.

Step 9: Drizzle the sauce over the chicken and serve. Enjoy!
