๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸณAir Fryer Cooking Tips

Preheating the air fryer when cooking frozen foods is important as it allows the defrosting to start immediately as it cooks.

The cooking time depends on the size of your chicken as they can vary from brand to brand. Start at a time and temperature of 375F for 15-20 minutes and adjust as needed.

Some chicken cordon bleu that comes frozen has raw chicken inside. Use a kitchen thermometer to ensure the chicken is at a safe internal temperature of 165F.

Don’t overcrowd the air fryer basket. This will cause the air not to circulate properly and the food will not cook evenly.

๐ŸงŠStorage

Air fried chicken cordon bleu will last for up to four days in the fridge. Place any leftovers in an airtight container and store it immediately after it’s cooled down from cooking.

How to reheat chicken cordon bleu in the air fryer is just as easy as making it! Simply place the desired amount in the preheated air fryer basket and reheat in the air fryer at 375F for about three to five minutes or until warmed through.

Re-freezing once cooked is not recommended as the texture will change.
