I made this recipe for my husband for our first Valentine's dinner 13 years ago. I remember being in the kitchen most of the day preparing everything so it was just right when he came home from work. I was so nervous and wanted everything to be just perfect for him. This chicken recipe was nice because after it is assembled it cooks in the crockpot and you can prepare other dishes. I remember it smelled wonderful and it tasted even better. It is one of those dishes that is simple, yet it tastes elegant. Our first Valentine's dinner turned out perfect and he seemed very impressed. But, about 5 years later when I made this dish again and I reminded him how it was our first Valentines dinner, he didn't seem to remember....oh well.....that is a man for ya! I have learned over the years not to take it personal when stuff like that happens! Men and women just don't see things the same....period!
Chicken Cordon Bleu-crockpot
thin slices of ham, one per chicken
slices of swiss cheese, one per chicken
1/4C flour, with salt, pepper, cayenne mixed in
1/2C chicken broth
1/4C parmesan cheese
2cans cream of mushroom soup
After the chicken is pounded, put a slice of ham and cheese on each chicken breast and roll up. Secure with a toothpick and roll in the flour mixture. Put mushrooms and broth in bottom of the crockpot. Then place the chicken on top and pour the soups over the chicken and top with parmesan cheese. Cook in crockpot on low for 6-7 hours or on high 3-4hours. Serve with rice and place the chicken rolls on top and cover with the soup mixture sauce.
