How long to cook frozen cordon bleu in air fryer
The length of time it takes to cook frozen cordon bleu in the air fryer will depend on size. The bigger the chicken, the more time you’ll need. Mine usually gets ready in 15 to 18 mins.
However because the chicken breasts are raw the best method to check for doneness is by using an instant read thermometer and it should read at least 165°F/ 74°C to be considered safe to eat.

This is an overview of the recipe with step by step photos. Scroll down to end of post for a printable recipe card with the amount of ingredients and full recipe instructions.
Remove the chicken from the packaging and place in a parchment paper lined air fryer basket
Set temperature to 400°F / 200°C and air fryer for 16 to 18 mins or until the internal temperature reads at least 165°F / 74°C.
How to store and reheat
I really don’t recommend making these ahead. Simply cook one at a time. If do have leftovers, let it cool completely and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
Reheat thoroughly in the air fryer or microwave till it’s hot and warmed through.
Air frying Tips
- I didn’t preheat my air fryer when cooking this frozen stuffed chicken breasts. However, if you preheat expect this to cook in less time because you preheated the air fryer.
- Cook straight from frozen, no need to thaw.
- An instant read thermometer is best to determine doneness. The internal temperature should be 165°F / 74°C However, if you do not have one just yet, you can cut through the chicken and ensure it’s white and no longer pink and that there are no traces of pink.
