We are huge chicken nugget fans and absolutely love chicken cordon bleu. We thought it would be wonderful to combine our two favorites into one delicious bite of heavenly goodness. Our kids devoured these nuggets in no time at all! We adapted our Chicken Cordon Blue Casserole recipe into these tasty nuggets! We dipped them in honey mustard dipping sauce.
7.5 ounces sliced ham (I used Oscar Mayer Carving Board sliced ham)
6 ounces box chicken stuffing mix, finely ground or you can use Italian style bread crumbs
1/2 cup flour
3 eggs beaten
1 teaspoon water
Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce:
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1/4 cup honey
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/3 cup mayonnaise
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Cut chicken breasts into 1 1 /2 inch squares. If the chicken is thick, cut it in half so it's thinner. Slice the cheese and ham into 1 inch squares. Sandwich the cheese and ham between 2 slices of chicken. Poke a toothpick in the center of the sandwich. The toothpick holds it together when rolling in the flour, egg, and crumb mixtures.
Beat the 3 eggs with 1 teaspoon of water. Dip the cordon bleu nugget in the flour mixture, then roll in the beaten egg mixture, then roll in the stuffing crumbs. Set on a greased cookie sheet. Slide the toothpick carefully out of the nugget after putting it on the cookie sheet. It will stay together. After you have dipped all of the nuggets, spray them with butter flavored cooking spray.
Cook uncovered for 20 minutes.
Mix above ingredients together until well blended. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
