Chicken Cordon Bleu with Barber Foods

I have a confession, sweet friends: I have a major weakness for breaded chicken! Those that know me are well aware that I’ve been a big fan of chicken tenders, nuggets and the like ever since I was a child and frankly, not much has changed since then! My family knows that one of my absolute favorite dishes is chicken cordon bleu {a breaded chicken stuffed with ham and cheese}, which I immediately order whenever I see it on the menu at restaurants, though unfortunately it isn’t very often. So you can imagine how super excited I was to find out about the NEW Barber Foods Stuffed Chicken Breasts! There are three options available: Cordon Bleu, Broccoli Cheese and Chicken Kiev. Ummm… YUM!!!

Barber Chicken Cordon Bleu at Smith's

I headed to my local grocery store and was able to find the recently redesigned packaging of Barber Food’s Chicken Cordon Bleu in the frozen food aisle. I decided to prepare a dinner for the fam to try to the brand new recipe, along with some side dishes that would complement it well. Because our weekdays are extremely busy between school and work and swim practice and homework, I settled on simple, yet delicious oven-roasted asparagus and miniature potatoes. The family absolutely LOVED it! And my chicken-lovin’ daughter was hooked! I have to say that the new recipe is much-improved, too! The outer breading is crispier and full of flavor, while the blend of Swiss and American cheese is perfect and plentiful. See below for the step-by-step images and easy-to-follow recipe!
