Playing Madison's Black Tie Chicken Cordon Bleu

This simple yet elegant version of Chicken Cordon Bleu skips the breading, making it super-quick to prep.


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin
  • 4 to 6 slices prosciutto
  • 1 cup shredded Asiago cheese
  • A handful chopped basil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil


Serves: 4 servings


Preheat oven to 425F.

Lay chicken breasts flat and place 1 to 2 pieces of prosciutto on top. Top with 1/4 cup shredded cheese to each breast and a sprinkle of basil, some salt and pepper.

Roll each breast lengthwise and secure with toothpicks or three to four pieces of kitchen twine: Tie one on each end to close and one or two in the middle.

Heat a frying pan with olive oil over high heat and sear the chicken rolls on all sides, about 1-2 minutes on each side or until medium brown and lightly crispy.

Place chicken on a baking sheet and transfer to oven to cook through, about 15 minutes.

Allow the chicken rolls to rest a few minutes before removing the twine. To serve, cut each breast at a sharp angle, yielding 6 to 8 roulades.
