French cooking with a twist! Remix Chicken Cordon Bleu takes the classic French dish and reformats it to make it even easier and speedier for the home cook. Chicken is piled high with creamy, buttery cheese and wrapped with savory ham before getting pan-fried into a crispy wonder. Remix Chicken Cordon Bleu then drizzles on a tangy mustard sauce to bring the most of the indulgent flavors. Served with baby greens, this is a complete meal in one dish that you can literally whip up anytime!
