Grilled Chicken Cordon Bleu Recipe

Serves 4

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 pound of triple creme cheese (recommended; Red Hawk) or brie, thinly sliced
  • 2 lemons, halved
  • 8 paper thin slices of prosciutto
  • 1/4 pound baby arugula


Heat the grill to high. Brush the chicken on both sides with oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Grill until slightly charred on both sides and just cooked through, about 2 minutes on each side. Put a few slices of cheese on each piece of chicken, close the cover and let it melt slightly, about 40 seconds. Brush the cut side of the lemons with oil and grill, cut side down until golden brown and charred, about 45 seconds.

Put the chicken on large serving plates, top each piece with two slices of prosciutto and some arugula. Squeeze the grilled lemon on top and drizzle with some olive oil. Voila: chicken cordon bleu!
