One of my favorite culinary styles is high/low cooking. High/low cooking basically takes a dish that is considered plain, humble, peasant food, or junk food and turns the volume up giving it a gourmet twist. That is what I have done with this beef stroganoff.

I think the best place to start talking about this dish is to describe the glory that is chicken cordon bleu. Imagine a hot ham and cheese sandwich. Got that image in your head? Good, now take away the bread and replace it with chicken. So this dish is already sounding insanely decadent and delicious.
