Chicken Cordon Bleu Nuggets

We are huge chicken nugget fans and absolutely love chicken cordon bleu.  We thought it would be wonderful to combine our two  favorites into one delicious bite of heavenly goodness.  Our kids devoured these nuggets in no time at all!   We adapted our Chicken Cordon Blue Casserole recipe  into these tasty nuggets!   We dipped them in honey mustard dipping sauce.

Serves: 24 nuggets

  • 5 chicken breasts (uncooked)
  • 8 ounces swiss cheese
  • 7.5 ounces sliced ham (I used Oscar Mayer Carving Board sliced ham)
  • 6 ounces box chicken stuffing mix, finely ground or you can use Italian style bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Cut chicken breasts into 1 1 /2 inch squares.  If the chicken is thick, cut it in half so it's thinner.  Slice the cheese and ham into 1 inch squares.  Sandwich the cheese and ham between 2 slices of chicken.  Poke a toothpick in the center of the sandwich.  The toothpick holds it together when rolling in the flour, egg,  and crumb mixtures.
  2. Beat the 3 eggs with 1 teaspoon of water.  Dip the cordon bleu nugget in the flour mixture, then roll in the beaten egg mixture, then roll in the stuffing crumbs.  Set on a greased cookie sheet.  Slide the toothpick carefully out of the nugget after putting it on the cookie sheet.  It will stay together.  After you have dipped all of the nuggets, spray them with butter flavored cooking spray.
  3. Cook uncovered for 20 minutes.
  4. Dipping sauce:
  5. Mix above ingredients together until well blended.  Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

    So I answered my own question. I assembled these this morning and refrigerated them until this evening. I sprayed them right before baking and they turned out great! The family really loved these so we will definitely make these again. Thanks for sharing!

    I just made these and despite whatever error i made they were still yummy! I'm a novice cooker so I'm just wondering if you can help me better understand battering. Mine turned out dry and nothing like the picture. Thanks! Corinne

    My family just loves this and thinks that your "honey mustard" dipping sauce is even far better than Chik-fil-A! I have to make this in large quantities and keep it in the fridge... they love it! :) thanks so much for sharing
