Chicken Cordon Bleu

Taking an old time  recipe and turning it into something modern, and healthy is one of my favorite things to do.  I would never make traditional Chicken Cordon Bleu, as it is too time consuming, and fattening, but this version I would make any day of the week and I hope you will too!  Super high in protein, without any of the fat.  When you want a really low carb dish, this one is for you.  Don’t forget to keep sending in your finished product for the testimonial page.
