Chicken Corndon Blue Casserole

My husband gets giddy and will break dance on the table for Chicken Cordon Bleu. But It is a bit of a pain to make. I adapted a recipe for a casserole that I like even better...and it is easy! It is crunchy and creamy and savory.


Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole
5 medium potatoes, sliced thin
4 chicken breasts
1/2 lb sliced ham
1/2 lb sliced swiss cheese
Salt, Pepper and pepper to taste
Dried bread crumbs or crackers to top (optional)

Peel and slice 5 medium potatoes. Cut ham into bites sized pieces. Slice raw chicken breasts into thin slices. Then you will layer this like a lasagna. Put 1/2 the potatoes on the bottom of a casserole. Top with half the chicken, then pour half the cream of chicken soup over the top. Next add the half of the  ham and lastly 1/4 pound of the cheese. . Repeat the process one more time.


Top the last layer with toasted bread crumbs or cracker crumbs if desired. Cover and bake at 350 for 1 hour until the potatoes are soft and the chicken is no longer pink. If you have a topping, take the foil off and keep the casserole under the broiler for 5 min to crisp it up.

It gets rave reviews from my family and my little girl ate every bite and trust me, that is saying a lot! Recipes like this make me glad that my kids head to school each day so I can heat the leftovers for lunch and savor them all to myself! What dinner causes your significant other to break dance on the table?

  1. I am going to make this! I love to make things easier...I have about 3 different ways to NOT make cabbage rolls, for instance, lol! And they all taste just as good.

    1. Yes, it is. No pounding chicken flat. I say, the less I have to touch raw meat, the better.
