A quick twist on a regular grilled cheese sandwich. I made this to use up some leftovers in my fridge, and it turned out great. I seasoned the chicken breast with seasoned salt.

Directions

  • Spread one side of each slice of bread with margarine, and place a bread slice, margarine-side down, into a nonstick skillet over medium heat.

  • Place a slice of Swiss cheese, the cooked chicken breast, a layer of barbecue sauce, the ham slices, and the remaining Swiss cheese slice onto the bread slice in the skillet. Top the sandwich with the other bread slice, margarine-side up.

  • Gently fry the sandwich, flipping once, until the cheese is melted and gooey, and the bread is golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes per side.

This was pretty good! I did not use BBQ sauce though (not a fan) instead I put a little salt & mayo. Next time I will use Texas Toast for a thicker bread. (I pan seared some boneless skinless chicken breasts first. Seasoned with sea salt & paprika. Then sliced them in half.) Read More

Delicious! I had a lonely little piece of leftover grilled chicken breast and this was the perfect way to use it up! I love chicken cordon bleu and this was a nice twist on that classic dish. I used thick sliced bread which I highly recommend and this turned out fabulous - perfect with a side of kettle cooked chips and a deli pickle. Read More

I made a few changes to this but kept with the Cordon Bleu tradition of chicken/ham/swiss. Instead of cooking a chicken breast I went the easy route and used fresh deli sliced chicken. Also omitted the BBQ sauce. Read More

Good recipe easy to make. I believe I'll cut the chicken into strips next time. I recommend using high-quality sliced deli ham. We used sliced sourdough bread and that worked well. Read More

Absolutely delicious. Those who have changed it so much shouldn't review it. Instead put it as a revised recipe. Spot on Celeste. I can't wait to have it again! Read More

This is a great. quick and easy tasty recipe. I began making these sandwiches several years ago when we started buying pre-cooked chicken breasts from Sam's. The only part of the recipe I haven't tried was adding the BBQ sauce. Everyone I've made this sandwich for loved it. Read More
