These two are classic dishes! With Kiev the origin of this amazing dish is from Russia believe it or not, well the French and other surrounding countries want to stake claim. As for Cordon Bleu the Swiss take claim. I could muddy the waters here and introduce you to Beef Rouladen which is the beef version but I’ll do that on another recipe.
You will not know the difference until you cut into it.
Chicken Cordon Bleu: Chicken breast pounded thin rolled with a slice of ham and cheese.
Chicken Kiev: Chicken breast pounded thin and wrapped around a nugget of herbed butter.
