Cordon Bleu Chicken Nuggets

These bite-sized nuggets are filled with ham, plenty of cheese and covered in a crispy, golden crust.

Ingredients

3
chicken breasts
1/2
cup flour
Salt and pepper
1
egg
1/2
cup water
1
cup bread crumbs
5
slices deli ham
5
slices Swiss cheese

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • 2 Slice the chicken into about 24 chunks. Slice each chunk in half, hamburger style.
  • 3 Slice the ham and cheese into squares the same size as the chunks. Sandwich a piece of ham and a piece of cheese between each pair of chicken chunks and secure with a toothpick.
  • 4 In one bowl mix together the flour, salt and pepper. In another, beat the egg and water. Place the bread crumbs in the third bowl.
  • 5 Dunk each chunk into the flour mixture, then the egg mixture, and then the breadcrumbs, then place on a greased baking sheet. You can leave the toothpicks in for now.
  • 6 Spritz all the nuggets with some cooking spay and bake for ten minutes. Then remove the toothpicks, flip the nuggets, and cook for ten minutes more.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Nuggets

As prepared by Yammies Noshery,

When you think of chicken nuggets, you probably envision some foamy, processed meat with a greasy crust that you dunked in ketchup as a child.


These Chicken Cordon Bleu Nuggets are not those nuggets.

In fact, these nuggets are not even distantly related to those nuggets. They’re cheesy. They’re crispy. They’re juicy. They are the happy meal that grew up. And got married to some cheese and ham.

I actually tried stuffing the chicken nuggets, but in the end, it was easier to “sandwich” the cheese and ham in.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Nuggets - sandwiched cheese and ham between raw chicken breast pieces

If you stick a toothpick in, it make them easier to coat and keeps them together.

 

Chicken Cordon Bleu Nuggets - flour the piece

Dunk them in the flour first.

 

Chicken Cordon Bleu Nuggets - dip in egg

Then in some eggs beaten with some water.

 

Chicken Cordon Bleu Nuggets - coat with bread crumbs

And finally, a nice coat of breadcrumbs.

 

Chicken Cordon Bleu Nuggets - Progresso Italian Style breadcrumbs

I think the Progresso Italian Style breadcrumbs are pretty swell.

 

Chicken Cordon Bleu Nuggets - Green Giant Broccoli Seasoned Steamers

Give them a good spritz of cooking spray and then toss ‘em in the oven. While they’re cooking, grab your side dish. I used a bag of this broccoli and just threw it in the microwave. It’s delish.
