Chicken Cordon Bleu Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe

My new favorite grilled cheese recipe. Chicken Cordon Bleu pannini yum

Do you say grilled cheese or toasted cheese? If you say Toasted (or toasty) cheese I’m not sure we can be friends. Okay maybe I won’t go that far but I am determined that my child will call it grilled cheese and not toasted cheese like my husband because come on people it’s GRILLED there is no toaster in sight. All that is to say that today I have a revamped all grown up Chicken Cordon Bleu Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe for you all!

Grown up grilled cheese. Yummy chicken cordon bleu version

This fancied up grilled cheese sandwich is SO easy and and so yummy. It’s got a bit more refined ingredients than your normal processed cheese and wonder bread but it’s just as fast and easy.

Must try this chicken cordon bleu grilled cheese sandwich recipe


  • Sourdough Bread
  • Spray Oil
  • Cooked Chicken, chopped
  • Brie Cheese
  • Deli Sliced Ham
  • Baby Spinach
  • Roasted Garlic Salt

Start by spraying your bread with oil and sprinkle with garlic salt on the OUTSIDE of each slice. Then layer your ingredients onto one piece of bread and top with the other piece. Grill either on a medium hot pan, skillet or Pannini Press.

Delicious easy weeknight dinner chicken cordon bleu grilled cheese panninis

I absolutely adore my pannini press definitely worth the money and counter space! It sits out on my counter and we use it all the time. Also I’m kind of a pro at burning grilled cheese and this takes the guess work out. After your first try and getting the right setting you don’t have to be as careful as when using a pan or skillet. I lurrrrve it! Plate it up with a tasty salad and you’ve got a speedy and delicious meal.

  1. I’m with you, it is definitely grilled cheese and this one looks great!

  2. You’ve just given me a bunch more grilled cheese ideas, Marissa! I love, love, love your twist on chicken cordon bleu. It’s the perfect grilled cheese sandwich! Oh, my goodness. So many perfect grilled cheese sandwiches to make after today’s event!

  3. I am a huge blue cheese fan and I love the addition of the spinach to this sandwich. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Brie on errthang! Brie is my favorite for grilled cheese because of how gooey it gets. It’s a perfect pairing for chicken in this case! You know, I’ve never heard it called Toasted Cheese before. Is that a regional thing?

    • I’ve got to agree with you on the brie! ANd yes toasted yes is totally a real thing I’m guessing midwest? But you should consider yourself lucky to have been spared that so far ;)

  5. Ooh brie on grilled cheese sounds absolutely delicious. I have never heard of toasted cheese!

  6. This looks yummy beyond belief! But I can explain away the difference between ‘grilled’ and ‘toasted’! We know grilled, right? Well, toasted is cheese (and what ever) on TOAST. At least that’s how I was raised! Gimme GRILLED any day!!!! Dona

  7. Your sandwich looks so pretty! I love that you used brie, one of my faves, and to put it with chicken sounds heavenly! Great recipe!

  8. Sounds wonderful. Also, it’s Grilled Cheese. Toasted cheese is when you stick the bread in a toaster and then slap some cheese on it. Nothing grill about that at all. Plus, no butter!

  9. Love that you put herbs on the outside of the sandwich.

  10. I’ve never even heard of people calling it toasted cheese? It’s definitely grilled cheese. This looks amazing!
