  Chicken cordon bleu with Speck Alto Adige PGI and mozzarella



  • Ingredients for two cordon bleu

2 chicken breasts
4 slices of mozzarella
8 slices of Speck Alto Adige PGI

For the breading

40 g panko (or, alternatively, classic breadcrumbs)
2 spoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 spoons 00 flour
1 egg
pepper

For the mustard salsa

30 g butter
15 g 00 flour
300 ml hot milk
2 spoons Dijon mustard
3 spoons finely-grated parmesan

 

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 200°C static/180°C fan-assist.

Spread the breadcrumbs on a tray and drizzle with oil. Cook in the oven for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and put to one side.

Using the tip of the knife, slice the chicken breast horizontally through the middle to create a pocket. For each cordon bleu, lay 4 slices of Speck Alto Adige PGI on a chopping board, overlapping them slightly, top with the mozzarella and wrap into a roll. Place the rolls into the chicken breasts, and close the pockets with two cocktail sticks.   

Toss the chicken pockets in the four, dredge in the beaten egg and pepper and, finally, coat in the breadcrumbs. Place on a baking paper-lined tray and cook for 35-40 minutes at 200°C static/ 160°C fan-assist.

In the meantime, melt the butter in a saucepan, add the flour and cook for a minute, whisking continuously. Remove from the heat and add two ladlefuls of hot milk.  While continuing to whisk, add the remainder of the milk. Return to the heat and cook for one minute, stirring constantly, and then add the mustard and grated parmesan.

Serve the cordon bleu with the mustard sauce.
