Cordon Bleu literally means 'blue ribbon' and is a name given to distinguished chefs. The original cordon bleu dish was a schnitzel filled with cheese in Switzerland around the 1940's. There are many variations involving a cutlet, cheese, and cured pork.
A popular way to prepare chicken cordon bleu is to butterfly a chicken breast, place a thin slice of ham or prosciutto inside, then place a thin slice of a soft, easily melted cheese. The chicken breast is then rolled up, coated in bread crumbs and deep fried or baked.
With Kirby's growing gourmand taste buds I've been delving into gourmet cuisine more and more to give him a true variety of new flavors. He really liked this one!
