This Instant Pot Chicken Cordon Bleu is fabulous! At least compared to the frozen chicken cordon bleu’s that my mom used to heat up for our dinners when we were kids. LOL
I loved how the breading turned out just soft enough, but crispy enough. And of course, if you wanted to crisp it up even more, you could run it under a hi or lo broil for just a minute or two. We enjoyed it as is, after the pressure cook cycle.
HIGHLY recommend that you make these on the steamer rack – either the one that comes with your Instant Pot, or one like this collapsible steamer rack.
Hope you enjoy this fabulous Instant Pot chicken dinner!

- Set out a shallow dish with the melted butter and another shallow dish with the breadcrumbs.
- Place 2 ham slices and 1 cheese slice onto each pounded chicken and roll up tight. Dip the tops into the butter and then roll in the breadcrumbs and nestle onto the steamer rack.

I was wondering what if you did this same recipe but in an oven, how long would it take. I am trying to write down the three different times depending on whether I am cooking this in the instant pot, crockpot, or oven.

You could look up Cordon Bleu recipe for oven cooking. Think its 350 degrees for 30 mins but you should check that.
