What a nice twist on Chicken Cordon Bleu and a great way to use up some leftovers! After our Easter feast we had some ham leftover and I had a Rotisserie Chicken in the fridge. And, I usually have cheese on hand all the time. I found this recipe online compliments of "plainchicken.com" Hope you enjoy! My Photo's
