Chicken Cordon Blue Casserole

I’ve come to the conclusion that casseroles just do not photograph well. The Chicken Cordon Casserole tasted a lot better than it looks. This actually came together by cleaning out the fridge a little bit. Well, that & this is for sure the lazy girl’s version of a Chicken Cordon Bleu. I just wanted to throw everything together and bake so now filling, breading, and rolling here. Just a nice easy chop, dice, layer & bake. J I hope you like it.

Chicken Cordon Blue Casserole

2 large or 3 normal sized chicken breasts

1/4 pound sliced honey ham

1/4 pound sliced Swiss cheese

1 red onion, diced

1 tsp Nutmeg

1 Tbsp whole wheat or white flour

2 Tbsp Dijon Mustard

1 1/2 Cups of Fat Free ½ & ½

1 Cup plain breadcrumbs

3 Tbsp Butter


Boil Chicken until done, remove and dice. In same pan, cook ham just until it starts to brown. In a greased 8 x 8 dish, layer the diced chicken, sliced ham, and 1/2 of the Swiss cheese. Set aside.


Sauté diced onion until it starts to turn slightly golden. Sprinkle Nutmeg & flour over onion and cook the flour for about a minute. Add the ½ & ½ to the pan & the Dijon mustard. Cook until it thickens, about 3-5 minutes,


Pour onion mixture over layers already in the pan. Top that with the remaining Swiss cheese. Melt butter & toss with breadcrumbs. Sprinkle that over top.


Bake @ 350 for about 30-40 minutes.
