National Chicken Cordon Bleu Day - 2022-04-04
What is National Chicken Cordon Bleu Day?
A delicious dish created on April 4th is now celebrated as National Chicken Cordon Bleu Day. This dish combines chicken, ham, and cheese and is a blue ribbon winner. The French dish Cordon Bleu translates to “blue ribbon.” It is a take on the popular veal cordon bleu. The dish is made up of chicken breasts that are flattened and wrapped around ham (or prosciutto or Canadian bacon) and cheese like Swiss or Gruyere. The chicken is held together by toothpicks before being dipped in an egg wash and breaded. The first recipe we were able to find was in the March 1964 Cincinnati Enquirer. It mentions that the idea to use chicken instead of veal came from Stanley Demos. Despite some misconceptions, it has been popular since 1964. Try making Chicken Cordon Bleu.
