Many of my grilled cheese creations stem from deconstructing a traditional dish, and turning it into a sandwich format (because sandwiches are simply the best!). For this one, I took my inspiration from the classic Chicken Cordon Bleu, a dish where chicken is stuffed with ham and swiss cheese, and often covered with a creamy sauce. Now you can enjoy this savoury meal between your fingertips instead of with fork and knife!

I loved how this sandwich turned out! The thin, crispy chicken was super juicy, adding great texture, and was delicious with all that gooey Swiss cheese and ham!
