I was really committed to bringing you more summer themed recipes this year, and I feel like I’m doing all right so far.

This is my third chicken foil packet recipe this summer alone (along with these Chicken Parmesan Foil Packets and these Monterey Chicken Foil Packets — two more you should be making!)

We’ve also had some awesome summer sipper (Homemade Pink Lemonade!), fruit salad, and easy no bake cheesecake. I’m calling this summer a success!

As much as I’ve been enjoying summer (it goes by so quickly here in Manitoba!), I know I’ll blink and my Pinterest feed will be filled with all things pumpkin. It’s kind of sad, but at the same time, I do enjoy the changing of the seasons every time. It’s one thing I love about living out here!

I will admit, I’m not really a green salad eater.

Although you knew that, because I don’t even have a salad category here on The Recipe Rebel.

I prefer hearty, healthy food, and I love the mix of protein, veggies and cheese in this one pack wonder. With 3 kids 6 and under, I need real food that is going to keep me going for the whole day!

Little Potatoes are low in calories (just 20 per potato!) but high in fiber and potassium. The chicken and ham give an extra boost of protein, and the cheese as well (plus, cheese is just delicious!).

It helps that the kids will eat pretty much anything if there is cheese melted on it!

How to Make Chicken Cordon Bleu Foil Packets:

  • Buy good ham. Some of the cooked ham you can find in the grocery store is watery and unappetizing. I like to go for a ham with natural ingredients (bone in is even better, but definitely more time consuming!)
  • Pick up some Little Potatoes — any kind you like! Any of the varietals would be good in these foil pack, and they’re all easy to prep (no washing or peeling!), cook quickly, and have a creamy texture unlike any other!
  • Get creative. I love that you came here for this recipe, but feel free to make it your own! Add in extra veggies (mushrooms or broccoli would be great in here), swap out the Swiss cheese for another kind (go for a Jalapeno Monterey Jack if you want to spice up your life!), or sprinkle some toasted Panko bread crumbs on just before serving for a nod to a true Cordon Bleu.

Calories 293cal


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cubed
  • 300 grams Little Potatoes about 16-20, halved
  • 1 cup cooked ham cubed
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning salt
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese


  • Preheat the grill to medium-high, or about 400 degrees F. 
  • In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except for the cheese (chicken through pepper). Stir well.
  • Lay one piece of tin foil on top of another and spray the center lightly with non stick spray. Spoon ¼ of the chicken mixture into the center of the foil, and fold to seal completely.
  • Grill over direct heat for about 20 minutes, until a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest piece of chicken reaches 165 degrees F. 
  • Open packets and sprinkle each with ¼ cup cheese. Close the grill for 2-3 minutes, just until melted. Serve.


*To bake, preheat oven to 375 degrees, place packets on a baking sheet and bake for about 20-25 minutes until potatoes are tender. Open, add cheese, and bake until melted.

    This recipe was good but as others have commented the cooktime is way too low in the oven. I cooked them for 50min at 375 and potatoes were still a little under done!

  2. says

    Thank you for this recipe! We cooked it last time camping and it was amazing! It really hit the spot!

  3. Chris says

    Err Chicken Cordon Bleu is Swiss, not American, the hint is in the name – cordon bleu, means blue ribbon

    It sounds like an interesting take on the original receipe

  4. Melissa D says

    I tried this recipe in the oven twice. The first time the potatoes were a little undone and the ham was a little watery. I would suggest using a good ham or prosciutto. Another thing I did was boil my potatoes for a few minutes before baking. It makes a bit difference. Overall, it was easy and tasted good.

  5. Marty K. says

    Great new family favorite. Easy to make, easy to cook,even easier to eat. Little potatoes were hard though. I’ll try a different brand next time. Love this dish.

  6. Melanie says

    I know I’ve asked you before about potato substitutes (I’ve never liked them and can’t bring myself to force myself to eat them as an adult), but could I sub in broccoli instead?

  7. Elizabeth Vlug says

    Just pinned this recipe. Looks delicious. ps. I couldn’t agree with you more about the ham. Some of them are soooo watery and rubbery. Thanks for sharing.
