3 of 12 - 2020: "Three French Hens" / Chicken Cordon Bleu Dip / Microwave Oven Day


This easy cheesy Chicken Cordon Bleu Dip I came up with is inspire by the lyric "3 French Hens"! Chicken Cordon Bleu is typically a breaded piece of chicken stuffed with ham and cheese. I turned it into a dip!


I'm also posting it for Microwave Oven Day!


I use microwaves ALL THE TIME and especially when making dips or things that I want to have a crunchy topping. This dip as you will see has a Panko Parmesan topping, which I browned in the oven.


I could have put it in the oven for 30-40 min. which also would have made the crust brown and the dip hot and cheesy, but instead I just microwaved it for 1 minute and put it in the oven at 400 degrees and make the crust golden brown for ~5-7 min. It saves a lot of time (as you know)! Actually, microwaves played a big role in women's liberation and feminism -- by literally liberating women from the kitchen and giving women more time and women could hold full-time jobs and they / their families could still eat.


Dec. 6 is Microwave Oven Day!

Tip: As I mentioned above, I make a lot of dips in the microwave and then finish them in the oven for a few minutes if they have a crust topping.



What I used (in this dish):

- 1/2 Boursin Garlic & Herbs cheese

- 2-3 oz. of Philadelphia Cream Cheese

- 2 slices (or more if you like) HormelHam (cut into small pieces (1 cm)

- ~5 oz. of Valley Fresh shredded or cubed chicken (You can use rotisserie chicken or shredded chicken)

- Panko bread

- Shredded Parmesan Cheese

- Cooking spray

If you make it in a bigger dish or like different ratios, please adjust.






Tips: First, I sprayed the dish with cooking spray; I find this makes the dish easier to clean -- no matter what I'm making in it.


Then, I put chunks of Boursin and cream cheese in the dish. Next I put little pieces of ham and chicken in the dish. Then I microwaved it for 60 seconds.


Then I used a spoon to mix it together.


You could eat it here!




But I added a Panko Parmesan topping! Yum! Then I put it in the oven for 5-7 min, so the top could get nice and golden brown.




I also toasted some crostini with a little olive oil to have iwth it. You could also use crackers or chips.


Here it is! Easy and cheesy Chicken Cordon Bleu Dip! :)


Give it a try! We are good at this!
