    This was my first time to smoke chicken cordon blue and the family loved it!

    I cut a slit in each one, stuffed in some deli ham and Swiss cheese, and wrapped in bacon. Sorry, didn't have the camera during prep.  Smoked at 250 for about 3 hours.  I used a little hickory, but think next time I'll use a milder fruit wood.


    Here they are off the grill......


    Here is one cut open and plated with some broccoli and some roasted rosemary/garlic new potatoes.

    Looks like it turned out perfect! How did the Swiss hold up to the smoke?

    That looks terrific. Are you aware of the forum rule that you have to send a sample of everything you post to a Canadian member?

    After smoking, did you crisp them up on the grill? Looks tasty!

    Please explain the prep more. I tried a version of this an thought it could have been better. Did you "core" a chicken breast and stuff in the ham and cheese or did you roll up the ham and cheese in side. How did you keep the cheese from melting and running out? So many questions. Yours look delicious.
     
  13. I was going to try a pork shoulder first...this looks more fun!

    love making cordon bleu...i like to add some chopped green onions, and use pepper jack cheese...don't forget a bit of brown sugar or coconut palm sugar sprinkled on the bacon..adds a lot of xtra flavor....great job on your 1st cordon bleu's

  16. Big bag of Costco chicken breasts and some black forest bacon...I'm gonna have a shot at this Sunday after my shoulder. Trader Joes has some good ham and tasty swiss. I'm limited to oak for smoking at the moment but if I'm gonna waste something...it's gonna be chicken!

    Thanks for the compliments. Sorry its taken so long to get back. To answer some questions.....I simply sliced the chicken down one side to form a pocket and then inserted 3 thin slices of deli ham that were folded in half and a slice of swiss cheese in the pocket. I would recommend two slices of cheese though or the ham, bacon, and chicken overpower the cheese. I would also suggest crisping the bacon a little more. While the outside of the bacon was crispy, the inside next to the chicken was still a little chewy. To keep the cheese from oozing out, I made sure I had enough room in the pocket to overlap the bottom edge of the pocket over the top and then wrapped the bacon as tight as I could (it still oozed out a little -another reason for more cheese).

  19. Hey, that really looks delicious !!

    To be honest I had never tried to cook the chicken with smoke, but your post really inspired me so I'll try this method!!

    But can you please tell me is there any kind of precautions should I take before making it??
