Entertain in style and ease with this French themed dinner menu with Barber Foods Chicken Cordon Bleu, and a Summer Gratin and Tartiflette recipes! Potatoes, Bacon and Cheese has never sounded so fancy!
I’ve been wanting to host a French-themed dinner party… any excuse for a little bubbly! So I got to planning my menu with a focus on comfort food. The star of the menu? Barber Foods Chicken Cordon Bleu! I also had Chicken Keiv as a few of my friends don’t eat pork. Barber Foods has new recipes and I thought that Cordon Bleu would be a perfect fall entree to serve at a dinner I planned to host. I love foods that are low-effort and high-impact for entertaining!
The prep for these couldn’t be easier. Simply follow cooking instructions on the box and cook to an internal temperature of 165 degrees!
The new recipe was a hit with everyone! The breading is crispy and stuffing full of flavor. We really love the update!
You can find Barber Foods Chicken in the NEW packaging in your grocer’s freezer section. I found them at my local Harris Teeter. 🙂
Setting up my tablescape was fun and budget-friendly! I got this menu board a while back and it’s perfect for showcasing meal options at a dinner party so everyone knows what’s in store. And, I know at a French dinner I should be serving Champagne, but since I’m not actually in Paris (sigh), we can get away with a less expensive bubbly!
The runner is actually wrapping paper! Can’t get any easier than that! I always pick up a roll when I see a pattern I like.
I like to serve a buffet style meal as I find that people enjoy serving their own potions. A fun touch is to plate foods on cake stands, like I did with the Barber Foods Chicken Breasts.
Interested in the side dishes? I’m in love with this Tartiflette recipe – a very fancy schmancy name for a simple comfort food dish. The perfect combo of cheese, bacon, cream and potatoes. Sure, it’ll blow your diet if you have it every night, but special occasions? Yes please! Plus, you save time by not having to peel potatoes like you would in a potato gratin. Prep it to the point of baking and put in the oven along with your chicken breasts when you’re ready to get cookin’! Print out or pin the recipe below!
The squash and tomato gratin is a great way to use up summer produce. Allowing the tomatoes to drain prior to prep will help ensure you don’t end up with a soggy mess! The bed of onions helps too! The recipe is available at the bottom of the post!
