Copycat Barber Foods Chicken Cordon Bleu

When we decided to bring back Better than the Freezer Aisle, I knew I had to try my hand at Copycat Chicken Cordon Bleu.  I’ve never had it before but the combination of chicken, ham and cheese is a winner in my book every time.

Copycat Chicken Cordon Bleu - Make Your Own Freezer Meals!I popped out to buy the freezer aisle version and actually cooked it up the same day.  Dinner became a taste test and challenge to see which my family preferred.  Because the freezer aisle version had more breading and less chicken, I thought it might win.  I mean, we love fried food in my house.  However, the taste was bland and the lack of chicken was disappointing.  I am proud to say that 3 out of 4 family members preferred mine and the 4th is my 2 year old who ate them both wholeheartedly (so still a win!).

Once again, my recipe came out to be 75% cheaper than the freezer aisle version.  One box only yielded 2 chicken breasts (for an outrageous $8)  and while it said it was 2 servings, the amount of chicken was truly more like one serving.  Hope you enjoy this one!
