Grilled Chicken Cordon Bleu

Grilled Chicken Cordon Bleu


  • 4 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 8 slices thinly-sliced deli ham
  • 4 slices Swiss or Havarti cheese, each slice cut in half
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Olive Oil


  1. Cut chicken breasts not quite all the way in half and open them up.
  2. Place 2 slices of ham (folded up) on each breast and then top ham with two cheese halves.  Close halves.
  3. Season both sides of each chicken breast with salt and pepper.  Place the breasts in a large zip-top bag and drizzle in olive oil to well-coat all sides of the breasts.
  4. Marinate in the fridge for at least one hour.
  5. Preheat grill or indoor grill pan.
  6. Place chicken cut-side up onto the grill.  Close lid to grill or loosely cover indoor grill pan (if using) with foil.
  7. Allow to grill for 10 – 15 minutes on the first side.
  8. Flip the chicken and let cook for another 5+ minutes until the chicken is fully cooked. (It may be more or less depending on how thick your chicken is.)
  9. Let sit for a few minutes before serving.
