There’s just something about the combination of ham, swiss cheese and fried chicken breasts, along with the dipping sauce, that makes this grilled cheese irresistible.
Alternative to the standard grilled cheese
The crunchiness of the chicken, along with the crispiness of the bread make this one tasty grilled cheese sandwich. It’s also super filling and totally such a satisfying meal.
Chicken Cordon Bleu Grilled Cheese
To make this, pound the chicken with a meat mallet to the desired thickness. You can also cut your chicken breasts in half lengthwise (great idea from my boss Corrie) so they are not too thick. Then just continue with the directions in the recipe below.
Cheesy and delicious
Even though you are using 4 pieces of Swiss cheese on each sandwich, adding another couple of slices will just make it that much more cheesier. Yum!
Grilled cheese doesn’t just contain cheese anymore. Skies the limit with the different types of grilled cheese sandwiches that you can make.
