Recipe–Linguini Cordon Bleu

4 Nov

This is my spin on the classic Chicken Cordon Bleu.  It has pretty much everything you would find in the original dish, plus pasta.   What’s not to like?

Ingredients:

1 block (5.2 ounces) Boursin cheese

1 cup lowfat or reduced fat milk

4 ounces mushrooms, sauteed

6 ounces linguine, cooked

1 large chicken breast, grilled

1 green onion, chopped (optional)

Heat Boursin and milk in a large skillet over medium heat, whisking until smooth.  Continue to heat, whisking occasionally until mixture has thickened, about 5 minutes.  Drain any liquid from the mushrooms (otherwise it will turn your sauce a dirty color) and add to sauce.  Add linguine and toss to combine.  Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until linguine has soaked up some of the sauce.   Remove to a plate and top with grilled chicken and optional green onions.  Serves 2 hungry people.
