A few months ago, I decided to try making Chicken Cordon Bleu.

I bought the chicken breasts, stuffed them with ham and Swiss cheese, adding some stuffing mix over top, some liquid and baked them.

 

 

 

 

I was so excited and confident in my recipe that I invited some friends over for a play date and lunch so we could all taste test this new idea.

Sadly, the chicken took FOREVER to cook.

In the end, we didn’t eat lunch till 1:30 pm and were all STARVING.

 

 

 

 

Overall the flavor was great.

However, the time to actually make the dish was impossibly long for an every day weeknight meal and one that we all agreed we’d never make again due to timing.

My husband then suggested instead of using whole chicken breasts and thick slices of ham, we chop everything up.

 

 

 

 

Use the same ingredients, but make it into a Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole.

Overall the chicken would cook faster in smaller bites making it ideal for a weeknight or Sunday meal.

Once again we invited people over to dinner and recipe tested this on them.

 

 

 

 

The idea of turning Stuffed Chicken Cordon Bleu into a casserole was an instant success.

The stuffing on top was a great addition to the meal and gave a pleasant texture to the casserole.

 

 

 

 

Some of the stuffing softened into traditional stuffing.

Others parts stayed crunchy.

We all agreed that we liked it this way.

 

 

 

 

The light crunch added flavorful texture and took the casserole to a new level.

This recipe is perfect for any chicken, ham, Swiss cheese and stuffing lover.

The surprising part, if you know my kids, is that even they liked this Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole.

 

 

 

 

The flavors all meld together nicely and make a cheesy yummy casserole that is perfect for a dinner, pot luck or freezer meal!

Recipe testing doesn’t always go this well.

 

 

 

 

There are many recipes we experiment on that we end up hating.

However taking a classic like Chicken Cordon Bleu and making a few adaptations, we’ve come up with a tasty Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole we’re sure you’ll love!

  1. This looks good, but I have a few questions:
    1) Do you cook the chicken first?
    2) When do you add the ham?
    3) Do you dice the ham, too?
    4) In the directions, you say top with Swiss cheese slices, but the ingredients call for 2 cups of shredded. Which one is it?

    Thanks for posting this recipe, it looks terrific (and easy). Can’t wait to try it!

    • Kathy, clearly my lack of sleep is catching up with me. I had a baby a week ago and this was my first attempt to get back into the grind of things and my sleep deprived brain clearly missed a few things! Thank you for pointing them out as I’m sure others have had the same questions. I also hope the photos help answer some of your questions. I’ve gone ahead and updated the recipe to reflect the answers to your questions. 🙂
