Skinny Chicken Cordon Bleu

Chicken Cordon Bleu is a dish that I first tried a long time ago, probably when I was 10 or 11 years old. I don’t remember where I had it but always remembered just how much I loved it. It has always been one of my favorite recipes to make because it looks so elegant…

Greek Chicken Bowls
