Chicken Cordon Bleu with Dijon Cream Sauce is a great dish to serve if you’re entertaining. The perfect dish to prepare a meal in advance.  Layer and roll these ahead of time then bake them just before serving.

Thinly sliced chicken breasts are layered with sliced Virginia ham and muenster cheese then rolled tightly and coated in Dijon herb mayo and seasoned panko breadcrumbs. 

The chicken rolls are then lightly browned in a skillet before finishing in the oven.

The Dijon cream sauce was a wonderful addition.  Spoon it around the chicken before baking then serve it with a simple side of steamed fresh broccoli.
