It was my husband’s birthday last month. Having tried all potential new recipes and not wanting to prepare anything desi for the dinner, I came across a quick, easy and yummilicious recipe. But the confusion didn’t end here. I went through 4-5 different recipes of cordon bleu and darn, I was back to square one. Which recipe should I follow to make the birthday dinner a memorable one? So, I decided to blend 2 or 3 recipes together and fused them into one. To my and specially my husband’s delight, it turned out to be pretty awesome!
Mission Accomplished, yayyy!!

Cut Chicken breasts in 1/2 inch thickness if they are too thick.
Pound Chicken Breasts well enough to flatten.
Season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper and oregano.
Put Ham and Cheese Slices on seasoned chicken breasts and roll them. Secure the rolled breasts with toothpicks so they don’t open up at any stage. Keep them in refrigerator for a while.
Mix Paprika powder in All purpose flour and set aside.
Beat the egg and mix milk, set aside.
Coat the rolled chicken breasts in flour mixture, then coat them with egg milk mixture and lastly, coat them with bread crumbs completely.
Heat butter in a skillet and fry each side of Chicken rolls on medium-high flame until they are golden brown.
Cover and simmer for 15-20 mins, until chicken is fully cooked and juices run clear.
Remove toothpicks and transfer them to serving platter.
For Sauce, mix and simmer all ingredients on medium heat. Pour on Chicken Rolls and serve.
MY TWO CENTS:
Chicken breasts should be cut thin or cooking time will increase.
Chicken should be pounded well
You can use any kind of ham slice (mutton/beef) if turkey is not available but make sure that it is cooked a little before.
