Chicken Cordon Bleu Bites


My husband and I were out to eat the other day and I was brainstorming ideas for yummy appetizers to have at a Superbowl Sunday party when this brilliant idea popped into my head. Well, at least I thought it was brilliant at the time and if I must say so myself I think they turned out pretty darn delicious. I made a bunch of appetizers the other night and had my best friend and her husband over as taste testers. These were included among the appetizers and my best friend ended up hoarding them all for herself and telling her husband they were gross so he wouldn't partake of her goods. I think it is a bit of an understatement to say that she loved them. :)

Cordon Bleu Bites Ingredients:

8  frozen chicken nuggets ( precooked)
1 package Pillsbury Buttermilk Crescent dough ( 8 oz)
8 slices Swiss cheese
4-6 slices of Deli Ham

Dipping sauce ingredients

1/2 c Honey Mustard (condiment)
1/2 c Honey Mustard Salad dressing
1/4 c Mayonnaise

Here are the easy as 1-2-3 instructions:

First preheat your oven to 375 degrees and lightly grease a large cookie sheet. Then start by cutting each chicken nugget in half. Make sure they are thawed (warm them up in the microwave if needed). Then cut each slice of Swiss Cheese into 4 squares and cut your deli ham into diced pieces. Roll out your crescent rolls. You should have 8 triangles, Separate them and cut each triangle in half so that you have 16 triangles now. Place a square of Swiss on each triangle, then place some diced ham and a half chicken nugget on each crescent triangle. Cover with another square of Swiss ( to make them really cheesy!). Then roll up the crescent starting from the big end of the triangle going to the narrow end. Place each crescent onto your lightly greased cookie sheet about and inch or two apart.
Cook for about 10-15 minutes until crescents are golden brown on top.
Then mix up the ingredients of your dipping sauce in a bowl and serve as an appetizer or fun meal for kids.

  13. This is a great idea. I think I'm going to make them but use fresh breaded chicken instead of the nuggets. Question for you....when you say Pillsbury Buttermilk Crescent dough, do you mean the biscuits? Thanks!
