Chicken cordon bleu wraps with crispy chicken strips, slices of deli honey ham, Swiss cheese, green leaf lettuce, and drizzles of honey dijon mustard wrapped in a flour tortilla shell.
Have you ever had traditional chicken cordon bleu?
It’s a tender, juicy stuffed chicken breast that has a crispy breadcrumb coating and filled with ham and cheese.
My favorite part is cutting into the chicken breast and the cheese oozes out! It’s incredibly delicious.
I wanted to make a simple wrap with chicken cordon bleu because I knew it would taste amazing and it sure did!
What does Cordon Bleu mean?
It translates to “blue ribbon” in English and is seen as high-class and distinguished.
According to Dictionary.com, “the sky-blue ribbon worn as a badge by knights of the highest order of French knighthood under the Bourbons,” or “any person of great distinction in a specific field, especially a distinguished chef.”“Cordon Bleu.” Dictionary.com, Random House, 2020, www.dictionary.com/browse/cordon-bleu.
Despite being from the French language, chicken cordon bleu is actually said to have originated in Switzerland from making schnitzel. Pork schnitzel, anyone?
