Chicken cordon blue is like a piece of candy with a surprise center. It looks just like a regular piece of fried chicken. But slice it open, and you get ribbons of ham and gooey cheese.

The Swiss dish has become a staple at wedding buffets, and Filipino families often prepare it for special occasions. But despite the accessibility of chicken cordon bleu, people shy away from making it on the regular because preparing it is so tedious. So to make it easier, we developed this recipe for chicken cordon bleu meatballs.
