Used a great shortcut for breading chicken or fish. Instead of the egg, milk, etc. simply coat chicken/fish with a light coating of mayonnaise and then roll in or press on the desired crumb mixture. Love this recipe, so does my hubby. I just cut ingredients in half, perfect for the 2 of us.

It looks like Taste of Home changed the name of this recipe. In the original magazine it is called "Stacked Chicken Cordon Blue" with no mention of rice. Just wanted those of you to know who were wondering about the rice....

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 6, 2014

This was delicious and such an easy way to prepare and enjoy Chicken Cordon Bleu. Couple of things for reviewer questions and concerns. The serving size is 4. The recipe calls for 4 chicken breasts, 4 slices of ham & 2 slices of cheese, halved (making 4 slices). King Arthur flour can be purchased on their website or can sometimes be found in major grocery stores. It is just a name brand such as Pillsbury's or Gold Medal, which can be substituted with no problems as all 3 is an All-Purpose Flour. With regard to the soup, it is not a can of each (totaling 2 cans of soup) it is one can mixed with both that can be found in most major grocery stores. Usually Campbell's brand. If one can of each is being used this might explain why some are yielding too much sauce. If you can't find the combo mix of both in one can then I think I would go with the Cream of Chicken. Typically mushrooms are not in Chicken Cordon Bleu but by all means add some if your taste favors them. The rice part of title is unknown to me. I'm guessing submitter meant to add serve over rice of your choice.
