Air Fryer Chicken Cordon Bleu Ingredients:


  • Grab your chicken breasts and place on a bread board. Half an inch from the top of the breast make an incision with your knife. Then slice down your chicken breast to open it up. Then once opened it will resemble a butterfly.
  • Add a slice each of cheese and ham inside of your chicken and make sure that it is tucked in.
  • Create your production line with a bowl for eggs, a bowl for flour and a bowl for breadcrumbs. Add garlic puree to your egg bowl, mixed herbs to your breadcrumbs and tarragon to your flour. Season all three bowls with salt and pepper and stir.
  • Add your chicken to your flour bowl, then your egg bowl and finally your breadcrumbs. Making sure each bowl has well coated your chicken.
  • Load your chicken into the air fryer basket and cook for 10 minutes at 180c/360f. Turn with kitchen tongs and cook for a further 5 minutes at the same temperature. Load onto plates and serve with your preferred sides.



Frozen. If cooking air fryer frozen cordon bleu, then you can bypass above. Instead load up to 4 frozen cordon bleu into the air fryer basket and cook for 8 minutes at 180c/360f. Turn with tongs and cook for a final 4 minutes at 200c/400f.
Measurements. Its not essential to measure out the ingredients in this recipe. Simply fill a bowl with flour and fill a bowl with breadcrumbs. You can always add in more if you run out.
Overcrowding. Note that you can not fit more than 2 stuffed chicken at once. Cook in two batches of two at a time.
Quality Chicken. If you are looking for a quality chicken breasts to cook in the air fryer, I recommend Butcher Box. Their chicken breasts come to you frozen and you can remove the packaging and load the chicken straight into the air fryer.
