This Chicken Cordon Bleu sandwich is a tasty grilled chicken sandwich recipe that’s easy to make but feels quite decadent!
In my world, there are never enough cheese recipes and never enough chicken recipes, so this GRILLED CHICKEN CORDON BLEU SANDWICH is literally my dream dish! Think grilled cheese but kicked up about a million notches. There’s so much flavor and absolutely zero fuss with this grilled chicken sandwich recipe. It’s an amazing way to spice up lunch, dinner, or any meal in between.
Sometimes there is nothing like an amazing sandwich, and this is certainly one of my new favorites. It’s got layers of melty swiss cheese, honey ham, garlic grilled chicken, and of course some amazing bread. This chicken sandwich is toasted up, hot and delicious. What more could you want?
Best bread to use for this sandwich
The key to these delicious Grilled Chicken Cordon Bleu Sandwiches is my new fave Cobblestone Bread Co. Million Dollar White Bread! Its soft, sweet, rich in flavor, and substantial enough to hold all the toppings. This bakery style bread is all you need to make the perfect “grown up sandwiches”…ones you’ll crave again and again.
I have always loved Cobblestone Bread, but this Million Dollar White Bread is for sure my new obsession. The “right sized” loaf is just PERFECT for our household. It’s hard for the two of us to devour a loaf before it goes bad, so the smaller size is right up our alley. Isn’t that just the best?
Chicken Cordon Bleu
Chicken Cordon Bleu is a pretty classic dish. Chicken breast filled with a slice of ham and lots of melty cheese, breaded and baked to perfection…it’s one of those recipes that is absolutely delicious and feels quite decadent. It’s definitely a high-class dish that we love to eat for dinner, but this sandwich version is just perfect for every day lunches! Layers of grilled chicken, ham, and swiss cheese, perfectly sandwiched between bread. Yum!
I really love this dish, which is why I wanted to make a sandwich version. I made the easiest Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe, plus I’ve made Chicken Cordon Bleu Dip AND Chicken Cordon Bleu Meatballs. All easy and delicious recipes for any occasion!
Grilled Cheese with Chicken
This grilled chicken sandwich recipe is one of my new favorite lunches! I don’t have time to make up complicated meals during the day, but a sandwich is easy to put together. I’ve made a lot of delicious sandwiches here before, but this is really up there. It’s almost like a grilled cheese but with tasty meats thrown in for extra flavor! My kind of sandwich.
I love serving this with a bowl of homemade tomato soup!
