Chicken Cordon Bleu with a French name first originated in Switzerland in the 1940s. Cordon Bleu means Blue Ribbon, which was originally a wide blue ribbon worn by the highest order of Knighthood L’Ordre des Chevaliers du Saint-Esprit (The Order of the Holy Spirit). Later, food made to a very high standard by top chefs who wore cook’s aprons with blue ribbons started being called Cordon Bleu.
