Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu Kabobs with Swiss Cheese Dip – with Video
These easy chicken cordon bleu kabobs are a super fun take on the traditional combination of chicken with ham. The Swiss cheese dipping sauce will keep you coming back for more.
This post is part of my partnership with Milk Means More.
When you think of chicken cordon bleu, what do you think of? A heavy, fried, kind of outdated, rich chicken dish? There’s a time and a place for that but freshening things up is always a good idea too. Of course, I’ve already done a baked version of a this classic dish to create a healthier chicken cordon bleu, but isn’t everything just a little more fun on a stick?
These fun and easy chicken cordon bleu kabobs are not only a great dinner (kids think they are awesome!), but you could also put them on shorter sticks and make them a fantastic appetizer.
About these easy chicken cordon bleu kabobs
February is Lactose Intolerance Awareness Month and if you happen to be lactose intolerant, you don’t have to miss out on this recipe. (Make sure to check out the easy hot chocolate recipe from last week, too!) While you could easily make this with regular milk, I made it with lactose-free milk and it worked perfectly. The swiss cheese in the sauce is low in lactose as well. The great thing about the cheese sauce (rather than the cheese being inside the chicken breast as it traditionally is), is that if you’re lactose intolerant, you can “start low and go slow,” beginning with just a bit of the sauce to see how your body responds to it before truly digging in. Once you dig in, I bet you’ll find it hard to stop!
Used in this recipe:
PPS: Is beef more your style? These citrus beef skewers with grapefruit are SO good.
PPPS: You need dessert. On a stick, clearly. These patriotic fruit skewers would be perfect!
Okay, I’m done now.
