Air Fried Chicken Cordon Bleu with Ranch Potatoes

This is an easy recipe to prepare and it is much healthier than a deep fried version. The chicken and potatoes can be cooked together in the air fryer…

2 servings

Cook/Prep time – about an hour


For the chicken –

  • 2 – 5 oz chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • 1 1/2 oz thin sliced smoked uncured deli ham
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 cup panko
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp mayo
  • 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil pan spray

For the potatoes –

  • 1 pound baby yellow potatoes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Ranch dressing powder

Halve the yellow potatoes and soak in cold water. Wash, rinse and dry the chicken breasts. Place them on a cutting board and pound to flatten. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add the ham on top of the chicken breasts. Add the Swiss cheese on top of the ham. Roll the chicken breasts up jelly roll style. Mix the panko, Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese together and place on a plate. Blend the mayo and mustard together. Brush the mayo/mustard onto the tops of the chicken breasts. Roll the tops of the rolled chicken into the panko mixture . Spray them lightly with the pan spray and place them on the air fryer tray. Put in refrigerator while preparing the potatoes. Rinse and drain the potatoes. Place them in a bowl and add the olive oil and ranch powder and blend well. Add the potatoes to the air fry tray with the chicken breasts. Set air fryer to 375 degrees for 25 minutes. Place the tray in the fryer with the chicken breasts facing the back. After 12 minutes, flip the tray around and continue to cook. Cook the chicken to an internal temperature of 165 degrees.

*Note – for a lighter version of this dish, substitute light mayo, Ian’s brand gluten free panko, and low fat mozzarella cheese.
