A Rave Review for Chicken Cordon Bleu

Okay so I cook a lot but it's not every day that everyone - and I mean everyone - likes dinner. In this case, you may say that the LOVED dinner and I would not be exaggerating. Thank you Julie at White Lights Wednesday for this fantastic dish! The original recipe is located at here.

Chicken Cordon Bleu from White Lights Wednesday. Mashed Cauliflower and Wild Rice.
I made some slight changes. I sprinkled the chicken with some garlic salt before layering the ham and cheese on top. For the sauce I decreased the Dijon mustard to about 1/2 teaspoon instead of a tablespoon because my kids do not like mustard. It still had a slight kick and with the other ingredients it was super tasty.
Super Easy, layered chicken, ham and swiss cheese and baked!
For side dishes, I made mashed cauliflower and wild rice. I steamed the cauliflower and then hand mashed, adding the new Velveeta queso blanco and a bit of heavy whipping cream. I took the extra time to make real wild rice instead of a frozen microwave package, simmering the rice for an hour with chicken broth and olive oil.

It was a resounding success. One kid asked to have leftovers for lunch (there was none) and the other was planning on the rest for after school snack tomorrow (but as I said none left). I'm saving the extra cauliflower and rice for tomorrow when we try a crock pot pork roast in cranberry sauce. The extra ham from this recipe was made into sandwiches tomorrow that are already packed. Happy Sunday!
