The best and easiest Chicken Cordon Bleu Recipe in the Universe!
Greetings to all fellow home cooking chefs here on the East Coast of Africa and Around this beautiful world we live in.
Today I thought we can show you a classic Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe with a tasty Hollandaise sauce. (See ingredients and directions for Hollandaise Sauce at the end of recipe ).
But before we start I would like to tell you how the Name Cordon Bleu, steeped in history, came about.
“Cordon bleu” refers to a special order of French knights and literally translates to “blue ribbon.
In 1578 Henry III of France established the tradition of the highest order of knighthood bearing a blue ribbon. France created the l'Ordre des Chevaliers du Saint Esprit (Order of the Knights of the Holy Spirit).
All members had to be at least 35 years old and Roman Catholic, these knights were then called Les Cordon Bleus, hence the name Cordon Bleu
So how did it relate to food, you ask?
After every ceremony these Knights had with highly respected guests, there were huge sumptuous feasts held in their honor that became legendary. It is believed the name of the knights then became synonymous with the food prepared for their events. Over time, it became a symbol of prestigious quality.
