Day 250: Chicken Cordon Vert

Yield: 3 servings
Time (Start to Finish): 45 min-1 hour

3 flattened chicken steaks
3 slices ham
3 slices swiss cheese
6 slices bacon
1 cup white wine

1. Preheat oven to 350F
2. Take flattened chicken and spread pesto on one side
3. Place in the center the cheese, and place the ham on top
4. Roll the chicken so that all the cheese and ham are wrapped inside and place the end of the roll on the bottom
5. Wrap each piece of chicken in bacon the opposite way so the side where you can see into the roll is covered. Use 2 pieces per piece of chicken
6. Take a 8 inch baking dish and place each chicken inside
7. Fill with the white wine, sprinkle with pepper, and bake until the chicken is cooked
8. You can add more pesto on top if you think it is dry

Rating: 4.5 strawberries
Notes: So, this is obviously a take on chicken cordon bleu, and vert is green in French, and that is the pesto! I also added the bacon and wine. This was really flavorful. Don’t add salt, the bacon and pesto have enough salt. The white wine keeps the chicken moist, as does the bacon. This is such a nice comfort meal! You will love it. If you like bacon, chicken and pesto, this will rock your socks off. Share it with a friend, save it for lunch the next day, an impressive date.
