Re:Today is National Cordon Bleu Day
I have, for years, called the various frozen chicken entrees made by Barber et al "stuffed chicken thingies". My favorite is the Apple & Brie, although I've been eating their Chicken Cordon Bleu since I was in college back in the 1970's. For years I used a combination microwave/conventional oven method, until I found out that it was what is generally considered to be a "Bad Idea". We have 3 brands in Northern New Jersey (Koch, formerly known as Antioch, Milford Farms, and Barber). Back in the 70's, it was also sold in pizzerias and sandwich shops as either "chicken calzone" or "chicken don bleu" (served on a hero roll, generally with tomato sauce).
