This is one of my favorite chicken dishes EVER. I had it for the first time with my paternal grandparents at a French restaurant on Colombus ave that's no longer there, but oh..the memories. I always begged to go there for the chicken cordon blue, thereafter! Yours looks just as good as the one I remember, which is great since I haven't had any like it since. Of course I'm going to pin this LOL
