Chicken Cordon Bleu

With the arrival of Riley (our second son) we have been looking for recipes that are easily frozen and when thawed, don’t turn to mush. My sister had made Chicken Cordon Bleu before with corn flakes, and it was really good. The problem now is that we think Landon’s stomach is sensitive to corn, so that goes out the window and in comes rice chex (we would have tried rice crispies, but the malt makes both Landon’s and my stomachs uneasy).
