Simply Delicious :: Chicken Cordon Bleu en Phyllo

Chicken Cordon Bleu en Phyllo

Simply delicious = simple + delicious. Sometimes the best ideas come from mistakes or a last minute decision to try something new on a whim and a prayer. Not that this was new. Not that it had never been done, but I was trying to come up with something a bit more interesting than sandwiches for the children. They tire of sandwiches, especially since that's what they have for lunch 5 days a week. But that's what I had with very little desire to cook anything for their lunch. It was a rainy Saturday and I'd spent the morning cleaning, doing laundry and making the Apple Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread. (See post below) My sink was piled high with dishes and baking equipment - all commanding my attention. Counter-tops were covered with flour and powdered sugar. The last thing I wanted to do was add to the already huge mess. But I still needed to feed the children (15, 13, and 9), fairly quickly and I wanted to give them something more exciting than a sandwich - they've become quite the foodies in their own right. And so my "Chicken Cordon Bleu en Phyllo" was created - and was sensational! For more, read here.
