Chicken Cordon Bleu is one of those dishes that look complicated, but it is very simple to make. I would say it is also perfect for the holiday table or when you have a fancy dinner.
Even though it is usually filleted such as chicken breast, veal or similar is used to make these roulades. I choose to make it with chicken thighs because it is inexpensive.
However, I am showing you how I make these using chicken breasts as well.
You can pretty much use pork or beef to make roulades and stuff them with smoked ham, deli ham, prosciutto di Parma or just use cheese.
Besides, I used prosciutto and gouda cheese, which is not that cheap but they went very well with chicken thighs.
However, for the chicken breast version, I used carved ham, which is thicker as well as swiss cheese, but mozzarella is amazing too. It worked out great and the best part, it tasted amazing!
My family loves this meal. I don’t make it often enough, but I think I will from now on.
You can serve it with any side that you like and prefer. We love mashed potatoes, rice, just plain salat or steamed veggies.
The sides are really versatile as Chicken Cordon Bleu goes with pretty much anything.
This year I have been blessed, and I am thankful to have an amazing support system from my family, friends and you, my readers
A lot of things changed this year for me on a personal side as well as a business one, and I hope next year will be even better.
Take a little time, be grateful for each moment that you spend with your loved ones. Smile, laugh, sing even if you are the worst singer and do not take anything or anyone for granted.
Life is beautiful, just put your phones down, look at the sky, take a deep breath and learn to appreciate what you have.
