Make sure the chicken is fully cooked.

Cook the frozen chicken cordon bleu for 17-20 minutes total until fully cooked. Flip the pieces halfway through the cooking time.

The internal temperature of the chicken should be 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

The cheese might start to ooze out of the breading towards the end of the cooking time.

When cooked through, remove the cordon bleu and let them sit for 2 minutes before serving.

They taste great with a side of fingerling potatoes or baby potatoes and a side veggie like green beans or sweet potato cubes!

Storage Tips

Any leftovers can be stored in a sealed container and placed in the fridge.

Properly stored, it’ll last for up to 3-4 days. Keep in mind that the breading can get soft in the fridge so it’s best to eat these cooked cordon bleu sooner rather than later.

To reheat, we’d recommend the air fryer so that the breaded chicken stands a better chance of getting crispy again on the outside and heated through again evenly.

However, the microwave will also work.
