I love-love chicken Cordon Bleu, but I don’t particularly enjoy making it. The original version takes a long time to prepare and if you are feeding a large group of people you might as well move into the kitchen for the day. The below recipe is quick and easy, yet tastes delicious! It was designed and prepared by my friend Mila practically on accident, but, as you know, some of the best things happen by accident and this recipe is proof of that.

Despite that minor mishap the chicken tasted amazing!
