"Chicken cordon bleu is not one of those recipes that was simply created one day; it is a dish that evolved over time.

Let us first examine the name: the term “cordon bleu” refers to a special order of French knights. Literally, cordon bleu translates to “blue ribbon.” Henry III of France in 1578 established the tradition of the highest order of knighthood bearing a blue ribbon. Since that time, cordon bleu has come to apply to the highest order of food and cooking. “The analogy no doubt arose from the similarity between the sash worn by knights and the ribbons (generally blue) of a cook’s apron.”

Interestingly, the dish chicken cordon bleu has nothing to do with the prestigious culinary institutes by the name of Le Cordon Bleu.

As alluded to earlier, chicken cordon bleu is a dish that has transformed over the centuries. More than one dish contributed to the chicken cordon bleu of modern times.

Today, several versions exist of chicken cordon bleu (different meats, different cheeses, etc.), as well as a variety of ways to prepare the recipe.

In America the first newspaper Chicken Cordon Bleu was mentioned in was The New York Times, in 1967."

Thanks for the history, I didn´t know this - though I have shortly wondered about the name when having French lessons. To my defense, that was pre-internet... and then I just accepted it.
Sounds interesting with the vinegar - guess I really do have to overcome my fear and learn to use an oven!

i LOVE chicken cordon blue - thanks for this recipe. Also, the mince pie above - such a memory came to me of Christmas past when I was a kid in Kansas City where all my relatives lived. On Christmas we would always have pumpkin pies but my aunt would always make a mince meat pie (that's what she called them although there wasn't meat -.... and i wouldn't eat pumpkin pie but loved the mince pie.

our grocery store has started selling rotisserie chickens now, that sure helps when the chicken is already cooked for these meals :)

Chicken and ham in a creamy cheese sauce is sure to be a winner.
