Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep


  • 1 box (16 ounces) ziti
  • 1 jar (15 ounces) alfredo sauce
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • Kosher salt, as desired
  • Ground black pepper, as desired


  • 6 thinly sliced chicken breasts
  • Kosher salt, as desired
  • Ground black pepper, as desired
  • 6 slices Swiss cheese
  • 6 slices deli ham
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg, whisked
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs


  • 3 Small Bowls
  • Silicone-Tipped Tongs
  • Step 1

    Pour all Level 1 ingredients into the pot and stir to combine.

  • Step 2

    Pull out the legs on the Crisper Tray, then place the tray in the elevated position in the pot, above the pasta.

  • Step 3

    Evenly coat the chicken with salt and pepper. Place a slice of cheese on top of a slice of ham, then roll up and place inside 1 chicken breast. Repeat with the remaining cheese, ham, and chicken.

  • Step 4

    To prepare a breading station, place the flour, egg, and panko with salt and pepper in three separate small bowls.

  • Step 5

    One at a time, dip the top of each chicken cordon bleu in the flour, then the egg, and then the panko mixture. Transfer the chicken to the tray.

  • Step 6

    Close the lid and flip the SmartSwitch™ to Rapid Cooker. Select SPEEDI MEALS, set temperature to 375°F, and set time to 15 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin cooking (the unit will steam for approx. 15 minutes before crisping).

  • Step 7

    When cooking is complete, transfer the chicken to a cutting board. Then use silicone-tipped tongs to grab the center handle and remove the tray from the unit. Stir the pasta and serve with the chicken cordon bleu.
