It sure has been a long time since I last had Chicken Cordon Bleu. It's
kind of one of those classics you don't really see on restaurant menus
too often anymore but a lot of people still make it at home. I have a
scary hunch that my most recent one might have been a microwaved
airplane version, smothered in a white sauce. Sadly, even that was kind of good.
When that smoky flavor from the ham works its way into the chicken and
the cheese gets all melty inside – well, the dish is almost always a
winner in my book.
