This has to be my favorite Instant Pot recipe so far! It is so simple to put together on a week night, but the flavors make it seem like it must have taken all day. This Instant Pot Chicken Cordon Bleu marries the same traditional flavors of Cordon Blue, but takes out the hassle of pounding the meal, rolling up the layers, and cuts out tons of time.
Instant Pot Chicken Cordon Bleu
- 3 frozen chicken breasts
- stove top stuffing full or half box depending on your preference
- 1/4 cup butter cubed
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 can cream of chicken soup
- swiss cheese
- Add milk and cream of chicken soup to the bottom of the Instant Pot.
- Stir milk and cream of chicken soup together. I like to use the 98% fat free, but that is up to you! Layer 3 frozen chicken breasts onto the bottom of the pan, add the layer of ham on top of the chicken and then add the layer of cheese. Pour stuffing over the top. Top with small cubes of butter and a splash of milk. Cook 26 minutes on manual (high).
- I like to serve this meal with a steamed veggie, side salad, and fruit.
If you are getting a “burn notice” try these methods to help:
Add 1/2 C more milk as your pot may cook hotter than mine, or try these methods:
- Use the steam rack. This is just a good ideal in general! Not only does it protect ingredients that could burn, like meats and vegetables, away from the bottom of the inner pot, but staying out of the cooking liquid also helps to retain your food’s natural vitamins and minerals
- Use pot-in-pot method. Place your food in an oven-proof container, then insert it into the inner pot on the steam rack. Pot-in-pot method can be useful for making sauces that are prone to burning, like cream sauces.
- Grease the bottom of the inner pot. Spraying the bottom with cooking spray or greasing it with butter or oil may help prevent food from sticking and overheating.

You cannot go wrong with this recipe! It is such a wonderful blend of flavors and is so easy to do for a week night meal. I have found a lot of success with cooking my thick, frozen chicken breasts for 26 minutes. I have read elsewhere that you can cook frozen chicken breasts in the instant pot in just 12 minutes on high. I am going to experiment with the cook time a little bit more, but so far this has worked really well for me.
