Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

Some nights you want to feel real fancy but just don’t have the time to put together a labor intensive meal. That’s why I love to create recipes that give you all the flavors of a special meal without the work! Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole is just that!

Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

This is recipe straight out of Homemade on a Weeknight in the Let’s Get Fancy Section. If you haven’t already gotten a copy of the cookbook – may be it’s time! Chicken Cordon Bleu is pretty fancy meal, that takes quite a bit of time to prepare – not exactly easy on a weeknight. This casserole gives you all the flavors of Dijon, swiss cheese and ham – without all the fuss of the traditional meal.

This casserole is so good all on it’s own, but it is also really good with roasted potatoes and/or cauliflower. The sauce that comes off this is delicious when you dip a tasty garlic roasted potato in it!

Don’t forget the broiling step on this recipe that is how you get the super gorgeous golden cheese on top and it adds just enough crunch to the dish. Swiss cheese has a different melting point than other more common cheese like cheddar or mozzarella. So you need the higher temperature of the broil to get it really start to become the ooey gooey goodness that this meal needs.

Casseroles are a great way to take something that takes a lot of work to make or create into a quick homemade meal any night of the week. You really just need a few ingredients – meats, veggies, cheeses – that can cook at the relative same rate and a binder of some sort. The binder can be a sauce or broth or more cheese!

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
