This week I have been posting some delicious new recipes that I think would make fantastic party food. Recipes like my Lemon Slice Bites and my delicious Bacon and Onion Dip

I thought to myself, it is not a party unless there is hot food involved! I have been wanting to make these Mini Chicken Cordon Bleus since I posted my Mini Chicken Kiev Bites. So I recently got creating! I tested and tested again and finally have a great new party recipe for you to try!

They are a delicious crunchy chicken-nugget like morsel full of ham and cheesy goodness. They make for a great family dinner too. Serve with some homemade veggies and steamed veggies or salad. We love to serve our with a little relish or chutney to dip in.

Breadcrumbs
  1. 3 slices day old bread, I like to use Turkish bread for a really nice crunch
  2. salt and pepper, to taste
Chicken
  1. 600g chicken breast or thigh, roughly chopped
  2. 1 spring onion, roughly chopped
  3. 2 Tbsp fresh parsley
  4. ½ tsp chicken stock powder
  5. salt and pepper, a pinch of each
Filling
  1. 16 small cubes of mozzarella or Colby cheese
  2. 50g shaved smoked ham, cut into quarters
Then mix like this
  1. Place breadcrumb ingredients into bowl and blitz for 10-15 secs/speed 7.
  2. Any leftover unused breadcrumbs (that haven't touched chicken) can be frozen.
  3. Place all chicken ingredients into bowl. Speed 8 / 5-10 seconds until smooth and minced.
  4. Wrap some ham around a cube of cheese.
  5. Shape a small amount of chicken mince around each cheese and ham bundle. Ensure the ball is completely covered in chicken mince and roll between your palms to ensure it is a nice ball shape.
  6. Roll ball into breadcrumbs.
  7. Cooking in the air fryer: Drizzle each ball with a little olive oil. Cook for 12-14 minutes at 200 degrees.
  8. Cooking in the oven: Bake for 30 minutes at 180 degrees.
  9. Shallow fry: Cook over medium to hot heat in 1cm of oil, turning often, for 4 minutes each side or until cooked.
Or cook like this
  1. Place breadcrumb ingredients into a food processor. Process on high until a breadcrumb forms.
  2. Any leftover unused breadcrumbs (that haven't touched chicken) can be frozen.
  3. Place all chicken ingredients into a food processor. Using the pulse function, blitz the chicken in small bursts until minced and combined.
  4. Wrap some ham around a cube of cheese.
  5. Shape a small amount of chicken mince around each cheese and ham bundle. Ensure the ball is completely covered in chicken mince and roll between your palms to ensure it is a nice ball shape.
