Let’s face it, chicken breast is bland. Even if perfectly baked. Chicken cordon bleu is a classic recipe that improves the taste of chicken breast by filling it with ham and cheese, then dredging it in breadcrumbs and frying in butter.

So I decided to simplify things by baking the chicken breasts as I normally do, then topping them with Dijon mustard, ham and cheese, and returning to the hot oven for just a few seconds, until the cheese melts. We loved the result! Easy enough to make on a weeknight, adult-and-kid-friendly, and very tasty. [Read more…] about Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu

When I eat burgers, I usually just put them on a plate and use a knife and a fork. This bunless burger “sandwich” is another way to enjoy meat, cheese and veggie layers without bread.
