I got this recipe off the Taste of Home website. It's from one of the Cooking for 2 magazines. I wanted to make homemade chicken cordon bleu for last night's dinner. I found this recipe and it was delicious. I would definitely make it again. It was a hit! I served it with mashed potatoes, gravy and caesar salad. I doubled the recipe since I had more than 2 breasts. I will never serve frozen chicken cordon bleu out of a box again!
The recipe was not time consuming at all, especially since I started with the filets that were thin to begin with so I didn't have to bang them out. It looks like it was fussed over. Next time will fry a couple at a time since some started to get too brown since I was trying to bread and fry at the same time! Otherwise, perfect meal!
