Smart & Final Chicken Cordon Bleu

In our family, we cook a lot of chicken and one of our favorite meals is Homemade Chicken Cordon Bleu with Rice Pilaf and Asparagus. Having a big family, Frank and I like to shop for the best cuts of meat and freshest produce at a great price.  We know we’ll find what we’re looking for at our local Smart & Final, so we headed over to pick up our ingredients for dinner.
