I am a huge fan of chicken cordon bleu. I also happen to love soup in bread bowls. When I came across this recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu in bread bowls, I knew I had to give it a try. Oh.My.Gosh.

Epic discovery: soup is not the only thing that tastes amazing inside a bread bowl! In fact, I may have even liked these even more than soup in bread bowls.recipe, chicken-cordon-bleu
The toasted cheese on top is enough to make me swoon. I used mozzarella, but you can use swiss cheese if you prefer.

When you dig in, every bite is filled with chicken, ham, broccoli, and a delicious creamy sauce. Heaven in a bowl I tell ya!
