|Chicken Cordon Bleu|
Tricia from Crockpot Tuesdays is weighing in on this game…
Chicken Cordon Bleu
Did your family eat and like it? Yes, we both liked it. I liked it better than my husband did, but he liked it, too.
What things did you like about the recipe? I liked the flavor of the sauce and the chicken. Also, it was proof that a “fancier” recipe can come from a crockpot!
What things would you change about the recipe? I would use oregano instead of thyme. The thyme was really strong, and was the only complaint my husband had about the dish.
Would you make this recipe again? Yes, possibly. It’s something different than what I normally make, but I liked it enough that I would occasionally put it on the menu.
Were there any leftovers or was the crock scraped clean? There were leftovers, but I knew there would be (I’m only cooking for two people). My husband thought about going back for seconds, but decided not to. I did cut the recipe in half, so it only made 4 servings instead of 8.
Creamy Corn Chowder
Did your family eat and like it? Yes, we ate it. It wasn’t one of our favorites, but it was good and filling.
What things did you like about the recipe? I originally thought this dish would be good (or even better) without the chicken, but after making it, I was glad the chicken was there. It made it a lot more filling, and there would have been way too much broth without it!
What things would you change about the recipe? The sauce was too runny — I was expecting it to be thicker. Also, I would omit the cream cheese, because I don’t think it really did anything to the dish.
Would you make this recipe again? Probably not. It reminded me a lot of other soups that I liked better. And the smell actually made me think of clam chowder, so I’ll be excited to try your recipe for that dish!
Were there any leftovers or was the crock scraped clean? This dish made about 6 servings for us, which is great, because we take leftovers to work with us for lunch everyday!
Was it a close game? Or was it a blow out? It wasn’t exactly a blow-out, as we enjoyed both dishes, but there was one that we clearly liked more than the other. In this match-up, the Chicken Cordon Bleu is the winner!
The Cordon Bleu will be up against the BBQ pork steaks in the next round. Should be a good match!
Thanks Tricia, awesome report.
