Chicken Cordon Grue


Shown here Dexter style

Tonight, I’m going to switch gears to tell you what’s for dinner. I will even tell you how, but be ye warned, I measure nothing when I cook.

Made this for two while editing.

For Chicken Cordon Grue, you will need:

2 or more chicken breasts
2 – 3 slices of ham
Cheese of choice (shredded)

Horseradish or favorite spicy mustard
About half a cup plain yogurt
About half a cup french dressing

Oven 375°F. (for average breasts)

Slice your breasts in half, but not all the way through, to form a pocket. Stuff. This is prettiest if done from underside of breast.
(Reading that one aloud in a group gets strange glances)

Place in greased (or sprayed) pan. Mix sauce ingredients in bowl – to taste. When satisfied, cover chicken in sauce and sprinkle with favorite cheese.

Bake for 25 -35 minutes. Chicken will be opaque or use meat thermometer.

I trim the fat.
Sauce may, upon baking, acquire a grue-like consistency. Refer to name of dish or consider adding white wine. Not much that a glass of white doesn’t solve.
Make sure your choices of cheeses and meats would make a good sandwich.
Great with streamed veggies like carrots and squash.
If you cut it Dexter style, I am not responsible for results.

Thanks! Bon Appetit.
