Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole
I love Chicken Cordon Bleu, but absolutely hate the work that goes into making them. Call me lazy, but I want the flavor of it, without all of the work. That is why I love this Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole recipe, the yummy flavor without all of the hassle. Since I have a ton of ham leftover from another dinner, I decided this would be the perfect meal to use up those leftovers. Plus, I have a ton of Zaycon chicken left in my freezer, so I kill two birds with one stone. You can use leftover ham, or left over chicken, or both or neither. All you need to do is cut up some chicken breast, or if using left over chicken, shred it…. Cover the chicken up in some yummy ham…. Cover up the ham in some shredded swiss cheese, or you can use sliced if you prefer…. Create a quick béchamel sauce, which sounds fancy, but is really easy and pour it on…. Then, finally top with a bread crumb topping and bake! Baking times will differ depending on if you are using raw chicken verses leftover chicken, but the results are the same. A juicy chicken with a creamy and cheesy sauce. Another note is you want to be mindful of the amount of salt you use. If your ham is rather salty on its own, you will not want to add as much salt to the sauce.
