What?!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta?? SIMPLE???

Hmm....

Maybe I should call this a ‘faux’ cordon bleu dish. Yes?!

Why??




Well, because I want to keep things simple (like my Chef!), yet special (comme moi)!

When you make a cordon bleu recipe in a baking dish, you usually layer the ingredients one by one.

Here, I decided to sautée everything together, slowing adding ingredients one by one - and then put it into a baking dish. Nice and simple - Oui?!

And yet it’s still fancy enough to impress your friends!!

Ingredients (Serves 2 Cordon Bleu’s!):

200 g of pasta of your choice
200 g of cooked chicken
2 cloves garlic
2 onions
4 - 5 mushrooms
2 tablespoons oil
100 ml of sour cream
3 tablespoons of milk
100 g of cooked ham
100 g of cheese (Swiss is best, but your choice)
100 g bread crumbs
2 tablespoons butter, melted
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon of fresh chopped parsley and dill

Season with a little bit of salt and pepper to taste, if you like.

Pour mixture into a greased baking dish.

In a small bowl, stir together breadcrumbs and melted butter. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs very evenly over everything, this avoids any build up in one place that could burn your dish.

Bake for 20-25 minutes. When it gets its golden color, we are ready to serve.

My Chef's Tips:

Sprinkle with the dill and parsley.

Because this chicken cordon bleu pasta is so special on its own, a simple light garden salad compliments this meal perfectly.
