Chicken Cordon Bleu – with a Twist

Now we’re talking comfort food! My oven has been a happy camper this past week with the temperature outside coming down a few notches. We don’t eat out as much in the cooler months, and I love to bring out some tried and true favorite recipes. My husband is not a fan of chicken (Don’t ask .. he is strange!) so when he is working night shift the teens and I make our favorite chicken dishes. This Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe is one of their all time favorites. I make it at least once a month, or when ever we are wanting something “different” than roasted chicken. I have also made this Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe for 100 people at a Super Bowl party. It was a huge hit. (I cut the chicken breasts into smaller portion size pieces so it went a little further.)

I hope you enjoy this recipe, it is a crowd pleaser for sure! Unless your other half doesn’t like chicken of course!
