Chicken Cordon Bleu is nothing more than a fancy french name for Chicken, Ham and Cheese. The three together make a fabulously melty main dish that goes well with green beans, peas, broccoli, California blend or just a simple salad.
These freeze well and would make a nice meal for a new mom. Wrapped individually in wax paper and frozen, they would make a great item to heat up for a quick lunch.
