Tired of the classic way of making a Chicken cordon bleu? I do from time to time, Don’t get me wrong…I love classic classic chicken cordon bleu in all its gloriousness. I really do. But sometimes I want more protein. I also feel it is less work but same delicious flavors and taste but with a little extra boost of protein.

This chicken cordon bleu recipe is a whopping 47 grams of protein! and it makes 4 servings! I have always loved Chicken Cordon Bleu.  This is a real simple variation of such a classic dish.  The sauce, I must say, is great. I usually will prepare this with some sort of steamed vegetables like green beans or broccoli but you could just eat it by itself if you wanted to. I usually refrigerate the leftovers and eat them by themselves… if there is leftovers.

Lastly I thought I would add a Fun fact… did you know that “Cordon Bleu” is of French origin meaning “blue ribbon” the sky-blue ribbon worn by members of the highest order of knighthood under the Bourbon monarchy. Most don’t so don’t feel too bad ;)
