    Today Is National Cordon Bleu Day! We already know that ham, cheese and pickles makes an amazing combo, so add some pickles to your favorite Chicken Cordon Blue recipe and you've got Pickle Cordon Bleu!! Pickle Chicken Cordon Bleu: 1 chicken breast per person 1 thick slice of ham per person 1 batch Hollandaise sauce 1 tsp crumbled blue cheese per person 2 thick slices Gruyere per person 2 tbsp chopped dill pickles 1 egg mixed with about 2 tbsp water 1 cup bread crumbs Salt/pepper Remove tender from chicken breast and reserve for another meal. Mix bread crumbs with salt, and pepper in a bowl. Butterfly each chicken breast and then pound out to 1/4” thick. Season with pinch salt and pepper. Slice ham into long thin strips. Slice 1 piece of Gruyere the same way for each chicken breast. Spread Hollandaise sauce over chicken breast then layer with cheese, ham and pickles. Tucking in the sides tightly, roll each breast up with the ham slices parallel to you. Dunk each roll in egg wash and then into breadcrumbs. Place in a greased baking dish and repeat with the rest of the chicken breasts. Bake at 365 degrees until cooked, about 30 minutes. Ten minutes before done top each roll with a slice of Gruyere. Hollandaise: 3 egg yolks 1 stick butter 1 tbsp lemon juice Salt pepper Place egg yolks in a blender. Season with salt and pepper and add lemon juice. In a small sauce pan melt butter until it foams. Turn blender on to high and after a few seconds add hot butter in a slow drizzle while keeping the blender running. The sauce will thicken within a minute. Use immediately or freeze for later.
