Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu

Aurora McBee


An easy, week night version of the classic. And a super way to use up leftover ham! These are tender and moist...and no deep fryer required! These are easily made up ahead of time for a faster dinner option. They also turn out beautifully in the air fryer!

How to Make Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375*. Oil a 9" casserole dish.
  2. Pound out chicken breasts to about 1/4 inch. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Smear one side of each breast with 1/2 tablespoon dijon. Layer on 2 slices of ham and 1 slice of cheese. Roll, tucking in sides, and "pin" closed with a tooth pick.
  3. Dip each roll in the melted butter and then coat in bread crumbs. Place in casserole and bake approx. 45 minutes, until breading is golden and cheese has melted. If you are a thermometer user, the internal temp should be 165*. (Also cooks well in the air fryer! I cook at 370 for approx. 20 minutes)
