    1. Hey Steve,
      I just made this for my family last night and we all loved it. Wasn't sure if it was going to turn out right because some of the ham and cheese stuck out of the chicken before I fried it but it came out perfect and sauce was so delicious. Thanks!

  2. Hey Steve, that looks beautiful. Just one question, when doing the roll with the plastic, I see that the plastic stays as another "layer" inside the chicken. How do you take the plastic out?

    1. Hi, the plastic wrap wasn't inside the chicken. I looked back on the video, I can see why you asked but it wasn't.

  3. This looks so good, and I love a good Chicken cordon bleu. I've pinned this as well so I can keep the recipe on hand. Thanks Steve.
