When I was in high school we moved, and no longer lived near my Aunt. We still had CCB for New Years, but it was the frozen kind. It worked, but just wasn’t the same anymore. So when I got married, a few weeks before New Years I called my Aunt, and got her recipe. Now 6 years later, I make it more often than just New Years. Tonight for example, it was just what was needed to overcome my evening nausea (and thank goodness it didn’t add to it, or I would’ve been very sad!)
I’d have to say this is one of my absolute favorite dishes ever. I could probably live off this goodness. Growing up, we shared a duplex with my Aunt, Uncle and Grandma. Holidays were great because we had so much family under one roof. Every year for New Years, my Aunt would make home made Chicken Cordon Bleu.
