Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu and Mother’s Day

Mother’s day has always been a difficult one for me. Growing up, Mother’s Day was tough, my relationship with my own mother pretty rough. Now I’m older, and I appreciate that even though it’s still difficult, I can spend time with her now. She drove up four hours to attend my daughters school play just to turn around and head home the next day. On HER holiday.

The kids and I spent the weekend together, and I made myself some gourmet dairy free chocolate covered strawberries. They were amazing and my stomach hurt from eating so many. I also gave them a thank you gift. I started this tradition several years ago when I saw it in a magazine. They have to put up with a lot with me.

I made sure to balance the strawberries with some dinner so I made this easy chicken cordon bleu. This recipe is out of my cookbook I’ve had for…forever. The poor thing is falling apart but I still keep our family’s favorite recipes in it. I’m sharing this easy chicken cordon bleu recipe with you today.
