CBK Chicken Recipe of Cook Book Kitchen

I’m really greatful and thankful that Maya Kitchen Cullinary Arts Center invited me to attend one of their cooking demo. This time, Chef Gen Capati thought us how to make CBK Chicken or the Cook Book Kitchen Chicken.

As I’ve notice, this recipe (CBK Chicken) is simmilar to cordon bleu without the coating. Chicken brest fillet, cheese and ham! But CBK Chicken was prepared in a different way. I just find it interesting that’s why I really payed attention to this demo.

Now, at home, I was pretty excited to try what I’ve learned from Chef Gen Capati of Cook Book Kitchen Restaurant and I find it so easy to prepare and cook. Here’s what I did.


  • 250 grams chicken breast fillet
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 pc ham
  • 1 slice cheese quickmelt
  • 3 pcs. Fresh basil leaves
  • Roasted tomatoes

Marinade (chicken)

  • 1 ½ tbsps. soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. Parsley flakes
  • 1 pinch black pepper

Pesto Sauce

  • 2 tbsps. zesty italian
  • ¼ tsp pesto
  • ½ tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • ½ tsp parmesan cheese
  • ½ tsp white sugar


    • Prepare marinade. Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Marinade chicken overnight.

    • Prepare pesto sauce. Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Set aside.
    • Heat olive oil in pan. Sear underside of chicken breast. Remove from pan. Instead of using pan, what I used is a HOB TOP GRILL AND GRIDDLE.

    • Spread dijon mustard. Layer the ham, cheese, and basil. Fold the chicken breast.

  • Sear chicken and finish cooking. Serve with roasted tomatoes and pesto sauce on the side.
