Traditionally made with veal, but this one is made using chicken breast. The term “Cordon Bleu” is a French term meaning “Blue Ribbon”. This blue ribbon was once worn by the highest members of knighthood instituted by Henry the third of France in the 1500’s. You too can now be Blue Ribbon worthy by cooking this tasty chicken recipe, a feast fit for a King. Vive la France!
You can prepare them in advance and refrigerate before cooking.
Make sure you flatten the edges quite thin so it doesn't unroll. Use the flat side of meat mallet, not the tenderising part.
There's no need for a sauce as it can disguise the beautiful flavour of this chicken dish, however if you do want a sauce, you could add a little white wine to deglase the pan you used, add a little lemon juice, a knob of butter and chopped parsley.
