There's no need to make it better if it's already pretty good but why not elevate your cordon bleu with a sauce that will make it even more delicious with every bite? A creamy gravy or sauce is the perfect pairing! Plus, it's easy to make without needing to dirty another pan to make it. 

Here's how to make it: 

  • 1 Leave about 1 tablespoon oil from the oil used to cook the chicken.
  • 2 Add 1/4 chicken bouillon cube or 1/4 teaspoon chicken stock granules to the oil and let dissolve.
  • 3 Sprinkle in 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, and stir to mix with the seasoned oil. Pour in 1/2 cup all-purpose cream and 1/4 cup water, and cook, stirring, until thickened. Season with salt and ground pepper to taste. 

Pretty easy right? You can even make it simpler! This no-cook cream sauce recipe is the lazy (read: effortless!) version of the recipe that's cooked. It's made by simply combining all-purpose cream and chicken stock powder to season the cream. Give it a taste Super simple and easy!
