In high school, my brother and I always used to eat microwave chicken cordon bleu as an afternoon snack. My mom would buy a giant pack of frozen cordon bleus from Costco and we would go to town. The combo of crispy breaded chicken, melty swiss cheese and ham will always and forever be nostalgic to me. I couldn’t resist popping all the ingredients between two thick slices of bread, because hello carb heaven. Toasty, melty, cheesy, chicken-y ham goodness!

Chicken Cordon Bleu Grilled Cheese Recipe
makes 1 sandwich


  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup panko
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 chicken breast, pounded thin
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • oil to fry chicken
  • 2 slices bread of choice
  • 1/2 cup shredded swiss cheese
  • 5-6 thin slices ham

Lightly beat the egg in a bowl and set aside. Place the panko in a bowl and set aside. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and then sprinkle on the flour. Toss to coat. Dip into the egg and then the panko making sure it is evenly coated.

Heat up a generous of oil in a large frying pan over medium high heat. Fry the chicken until golden brown and crispy, about 3-5 minutes per side. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Wipe down the pan, leaving a bit of oil behind (not too much!). Lay down one slice of bread and top with half of the cheese. Place the chicken on top, then the ham slices, and the remaining cheese and slice of bread. Grill, over medium-low heat until golden brown and cheese start to melt. Flip carefully and grill until golden and everything is melty. Enjoy!
