Chicken Kievs are a big hit in this house and a regular. Tonight I thought I’d try cordon bleu.
Normally when I make things like this I use a whole chicken breast however people mentioned making chicken mince and using that instead so I gave that whirl tonight. I think I’ll stick to chicken breasts though when making this in the future as I prefer them. Mincing is a good option though as you can make more and extend the mixture.
I think the trick to this dish is using flavorsome ham and cheese. We used triple smoked ham and a sharp cheddar and it was delicious.
This made 3 cordon bleus.
