Chicken Cordon Bleu Sandwich {Quick Dinner Fixins}

Chicken Cordon Bleu is a classic French dinner. This recipe is a fun twist, turning it into a sandwich, making it perfect for lunch or dinner!

Well, this chicken Cordon Bleu sandwich isn’t as far away from poultry or kinda heavy as I have mandated for the rest of the week, but it was pretty tasty and fit the simple requirement.

Here’s a shocker for you: I have never fried chicken before.

Why not? Well, I have always thought it to be way too unhealthy, soggy, and time consuming to make. Not to mention, in these parts, the only thing that counts as ‘fried chicken’ is KFC, and well, ew.

This chicken Cordon Bleu sandwich was awesome, though!

Crispy, golden brown and delicious. I could have eaten the chicken alone (and probably did eat more than my fair share). The whole sandwich came together super quickly and was rather filling. I had everything done and ready in less time then it took the quick oven baked French fries to finish cooking.

What I did differently:

The only thing I knew about “fried chicken” is to soak the chicken in buttermilk, so I did that overnight.

We don’t care for mustard, so it was a 2 tbs mayo, 1 tbs mustard mixture for us. It was just enough tang for our taste buds.

We were fresh outta Swiss cheese, so I used white American (don’t hate me).

I left the chicken cordon bleu sandwiches un-topped when in the (toaster) oven, laying the tops next to them, so that they would brown a little.
