Lusog Notes

This nutritious dish is high in iron which is needed for normal metabolism. It also has vitamin A that helps resist infections and maintain healthy skin and niacin that supports the nervous system and digestive tract.

Chef's Tip

Chicken should always be eaten fully cooked. Since the chicken cordon bleu rolls are thick, frying alone might not fully cook the chicken. Be sure to simmer the chicken in the sauce to cook the rolls through and at the same time allow the rolls to absorb the sauce.
