Frozen Chicken Cordon Bleu Ingredients
- Premade Chicken Cordon Bleu is all you need! There are a couple of options:
- Frozen Raw Chicken – this is a version that is premade but not cooked so it’s raw when you take it out of the package but frozen. I’m using Barber Foods brand in this recipe but there are different brands you’ll find in the grocery store.
- Fresh Chicken – Home Chef also sells a fresh version in the refrigerated deli section of the store. If you are using that, you would reduce the cooking time to 10-12 min.
What is Chicken Cordon Bleu
Chicken Cordon Bleu is a classic dish! Stuffed chicken breasts that are cheesy, meaty and delicious!
The recipe starts with a boneless, skinless chicken breasts that are pounded thin with a meat mallet (or a rolling pin) on a cutting board. Then you layer it with a slice of ham, Dijon mustard and Swiss cheese slices. Roll the chicken breast up, dip it in an egg wash and bread with a bread crumb mixture.
Often times they are made by deep frying which adds a lot of fat! With the air fryer, you’ll have delicious stuffed breaded chicken breasts without the extra calories!
How to Make Frozen Chicken Cordon Bleu in the Air Fryer
It’s very simple and easy to make this stuffed chicken breast in the air fryer – take it out of the package and it goes in the air fryer! Easy dinner made even easier!
- Remove chicken cordon bleu from the wrapper
- Place chicken breasts into the air fryer basket
- You can use a parchment paper liner if you have them. The cheese can ooze out and stick.
- You can definitely make multiple pieces of chicken – just be sure they’re in a single layer in the basket.
- Air fry at 370º for 17-20 minutes until golden brown
- Check the chicken at 17 minutes and test the temperature. You can always add time, but you can’t unburn something.
- Always test in the middle of the chicken breast with an instant-read thermometer to be sure it’s 165ºF internal temperature.
- Remove with tongs and serve
