While aimlessly browsing for something easy but tasty as the first dish of the year, I went on AllRecipes.com and found Chicken Cordon Bleu II. It looked fairly simple - few ingredients, few preparation, short cooking time... and the five star rating from its two thousand reviews made it a no brainer.

I read some reviews and followed MEGBY's variation posted on Nov. 3, 2003.
Step 1: - Pound/Jaccard the chicken breast; add ham and Swiss cheese in the middle and secure with toothpicks.
Step 2: - Brush chicken with egg, bread with breadcrumbs, then fry in butter until both sides are golden brown.
Step 3: - Put in oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
Step 4: - Mix heavy whipping cream, white wine, chicken bouillon granules and cornstarch in a bowl. Simmer in a pot for 10 minutes or until boil right before the chicken is ready from the oven.
Step 5: - Blanch some great Sugar Snap Peas; season with black pepper.
Now, your dinner awaits. :-)
It was yummy! (First time I liked my own cooking)
