Sunday Suppers with Lunchbox Love – Chicken Cordon Bleu

This recipe had me at “Healthy and Light” and “Child-friendly” – in addition, high in protein! This will be our nice, sit down dinner tonight after a weekend of soccer and karate!  I yearn for these nights where we can sit down as a family and share with each other what was the most fun part of the weekend! This recipe is from Food Done Light.  I think I’ll bookmark this site!
