Chicken Cordon Bleu Cups are a tasty option for making individual serving portions for everyday meals and entertaining. Buttery puff pastry cups are filled with rotisserie chicken, smoked ham and Swiss cheese. Baked until golden they get a sprinkle of fresh chives for color just before serving as a main dish or buffet party food.
Muffin pans are rockstars for making far more than muffins and cupcakes. In fact, I fill them with so many different single serving foods that I feel I really get my money’s worth out of my purchase. Baked eggs, smoky bacon macaroni and cheese muffins chili cheese cornbread muffins smothered with chili and sour cream are among our very favorite muffin pan goodies.
When baking with puff pastry, I have the most success starting these chicken cordon bleu cups on the lower oven rack to bake the bottom of the puff pastry thoroughly. Move them to the center of the oven halfway through to finish baking and brown the tops. Puff pastry is so buttery, it can be a challenge to brown the bottoms if they’re baked in the center of the oven the entire time. You could also adapt these to mini muffins if you’d like to turn them into an appetizer or bite-size party treat. After rolling the puff pastry, cut into 24 even pieces, fill and bake adjusting the baking time accordingly.
