Mini Cordon Bleu Bites


Add a fancy touch to your appetizer table with these chicken cordon bleu bites—a perfect sized portion of the classic dish.


Ingredients:

  • 2 boneless chicken breast cutlets, about 8 oz.
  • ½ cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1½ cups bread crumbs
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese, cut into 1-inch squares
  • 4 pieces deli-sliced ham, cut into 1-inch squares

Sauce:

  • 1½ tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1½ cups milk
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard

Instructions:

  1. Heat up the oil in a large pan on medium heat. Add in the flour, seasoning, and garlic salt to a large bowl, then butterfly the chicken, and cut into bite-size pieces.
  2. Dip each chicken piece into the flour mixture to coat, and then place in the bowl with the milk. Finally, roll in the breadcrumbs.
  3. Place the chicken in the hot oil for approximately 3-5 minutes on each side, until cooked through. Then drain the oil, and place the bites back in the pan.
  4. Top each piece of chicken with a slice of Swiss cheese, two pieces of ham, and another slice of cheese, and then allow the cheese to melt.
  5. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add in the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add half the milk and whisk until blended. Add remaining milk and mustard. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly until thickened. Serve as a dipping sauce.
