I love planning meals that give me the most time with my family.  The less time in the kitchen, the better.  Especially on a busy weeknight when we’re all rushing to get home, eat and relax.  Any meal that takes 40 minutes or less to make is a meal made for me.

I love a classic Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe in all its gloriousness.  I really do.  I’ve attempted to make is at least a half dozen times and it’s a hit or miss recipe for me.

 It’s always the filling that leaks out and leaves the chicken dry.  Sometimes, I want an easier way.  A way that requires less work but has the same delicious flavors and taste.

What I love about using already prepared Chicken Cordon Bleu from the store is that I don’t have spend nearly an hour to make it myself.  Since the chicken is raw and needs to be baked, it gives me time to make a side dish while it bakes.

To make Barber Foods Chicken Cordon Bleu, start by preheating the oven to 375 degrees F.  Unwrap the chicken from the pouch and space them apart on a baking sheet.  Bake for 31-33 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.  Allow chicken to cool a few minutes before serving.
