It’s the Plan, Again / Chicken Cordon Bleu

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure statement for more details.

I actually went shopping on Saturday this week since we had run out of meals and I needed a potluck dish for Saturday afternoon (I made Carolyn’s Tortellini Salad and it was heavenly and a HUGE hit!). Unfortunately on Saturday I forgot about the meal I needed to make for a sick friend to take tonight (Monday) and I had to go back to the grocery yesterday. Argh. And somehow managed to spend half of what I spent on Saturday, even though I bought stuff for one meal instead of five. That, my friends, is why I go once a week!

So here’s the plan!

Mr. V is going to make dinner for tonight since we’re in a hurry to get out the door. He’s making Impossible Cheeseburger Pie, which should last us 2-3 meals–probably 2 dinners and a lunch. Depending on how hungry we are. 🙂

One meal will be Chicken Satay Stir-Fry with Orange Jasmine Rice, a recipe my mom and I saw on 30 Minute Meals years ago and that I still love! It’s a little labor heavy but worth it! I’m not a huge peanut sauce person, but I make a little bit to drizzle over the top. If I make it for my sister Ashley, though, I make a ton! 🙂

I’ve heard good things about this Simply Roasted Pork from Cooking Light, so I am excited to try it out. For one meal we’ll have pork with red potatoes and a veggie, and another meal pork sandwiches with grilled sweet onions. Mmm!

Lastly, here’s a simple Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe we picked up from some friends during our college years.

Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: PT50`M

Yield: 4 servings

Simple but delicious chicken cordon bleu roll-ups.


  • 4 chicken breasts, pounded flat
  • 4 slices deli ham
  • 4 slices swiss cheese
  • Italian bread crumbs
  • melted butter


Place one slice ham and one slice cheese on top of each chicken breast; roll up and secure with toothpicks. Dip the roll into melted butter and then into breadcrumbs. Place chicken in a baking dish with a little bit of water in the bottom to keep them moist. Bake about 40 minutes or until cooked through.


Simple but delicious!

Have a wonderful and tasty week.
