Amazing Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole is great for quick dinner and perfect make ahead and freeze. We all love dinners we can freeze for nights when we don’t feel like cooking!
My daughter and I like making up meals on cold winter days that we can easily freeze and have ready for those busy days when we don’t have time or energy to cook. This is one great dish for just that!
- 3-4 coked chicken breast, cubed (rotisserie chicken is great too)
- 3 cups cubed ham
- 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
You will use the above for layering. In a 9 x 13 glass dish, put meat on the bottom, cheese, meat…so on.
Next mix 3 tbsp. melted butter with 2 cups bread crumbs, Panko is a good choice.
- 2 tbsp. flour with 3 tbsp. butter, mix to a paste
- 3 cups whole milk
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 2 tbsp. mustard
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup shredded swiss cheese
Cook over medium heat, after you have a nice smooth paste, add remaining ingredients and stir well. It doesn’t have to be thick but not too runny. Add Swiss cheese. Pour mixture over your layer. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes until nice and golden on top.
Enjoy and a nice big piece of French bread really makes this meal!
