Chicken Cordon Bleu

I cooked chicken cordon Bleu the other day and it came out kinda dry, what temp should I get my egg up to so I can get nice grill marks and still have a nice moist piece of chicken. I'm thinking I need it hotter and less time per side. Any recommendations?

Thanks, Jeff

    I forgot to say bnls - I went to 165 internal - was a little too high but wife likes everything extremely well done except steak.

    Cook to temp, not time. Just be careful you don't put it in a think of melted cheese.

    I cook them indirect at 375°, till they hit 160° internal. They do get dry if they go to much above that.

    I cook mine at 350 raised direct but use a mustard and honey glaze on them every 10 minutes until 165.

  • Use chicken thighs instead of breast (11 grams of fat in thigh and 3 in a breast). The extra fat makes for a much moister piece of yard-bird.
