My husband ate chicken cordon bleu at a dining facility during tech school for the Air Force. I'd never eaten it or made it, but I wanted to figure it out for him as a surprise before he deployed. There are so many recipes out there, so I took a little from a lot of them and "tweaked" it to make it my own. I have picky eaters, so I make 3 different kinds (the only difference in them is the cheese). This was a huge hit at my house and I get a lot of compliments when I make it. Hope you enjoy it! Oh, and thankfully my husband likes mine better than what the Air Force serves!!
