Chicken Cordon Bleu Bites

Chk Cordon Bleu-Final

I will start by saying that I got the idea from this blog one night while looking for a nice spin on regular chicken cordon bleu.  I am constantly asked to make these, they are just so much fun to eat and really not that difficult to make!

Chicken Bites: Egg Wash: Flour Mixture: Panko Crumb Mixture:
8 chicken tenderloins 2 eggs 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 cup Panko crumbs
2 Swiss cheese slices 2 tablespoons water 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon paprika
2-3 slices ham
(lunch meat)
1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon salt
8 wooden toothpicks 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Honey mustard
(for topping and dipping)


1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Spray baking sheet with non-stick spray.
2) Prepare each mixture in separate bowls.
Egg Wash: Whisk eggs and water together in bowl.
Flour Mixture: Combine  flour, garlic powder, salt, pepper in bowl.
Panko Crumb Mixture: Combine Panko crumbs, paprika, and salt in bowl.
3) Wash and trim chicken if necessary.  Place more presentable side down on work surface.  Use flat side of meat tenderizer to flatten chicken.
4) Place ham slices on chicken to size.
5) Place small squares of Swiss cheese on top of the ham, preferably on the wider end of chicken.
6) Put a drop of honey mustard on top of the cheese.
7) Roll up the chicken from the wider end to the narrow end.  Secure with toothpicks.  Repeat for each tenderloin.
8) Coat chicken in egg wash, then transfer to flour mixture to coat, and finally coat with Panko crumb mixture.
9) Place chicken on prepared baking sheet.  Spray the tops of chicken lightly with cooking spray.
10) Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until crumbs turn golden brown and chicken is fully cooked.  Cheese will also begin to “ooze” at this point.
11) Serve with honey mustard for a dipping sauce.
