Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole ~ All time popular Chicken Cordon Bleu, but in a Casserole which is easier, quicker and just as tasty {if not better!} Your family will definitely want seconds !

This is a somewhat different kind of Cordon Bleu, and I have to say a very delicious different kind! I have had the original recipe pinned for some time and finally gotten around to making this absolutely scrumptious Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole - twice already...

I did not bother to take a photo of a serving on a plate, as it is just one of those dishes which looks like a total mess once served, but tastes amazing.

My family had gone totally nuts when they tasted this Casserole ! It really is something special and yet, again, so very, very easy to put together. Both times I cooked the Chicken earlier the day, shredded as I started to get all the ingredients together and from there on the rest of the recipe was a breeze.

I am definitely adding this Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole to my favorite dishes, and I know the kids and Roy will enjoy it no matter the season. And all you need to serve with this dish, is a side salad or a green vegetable {well, actually any vegetable, I just prefer something green as a side dish}

The first time I made this Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole, I made it exactly as per the recipe {link to original below recipe name}, but I was not 100% happy with the topping. A couple of weeks later, I made the dish again with a few changes.

The topping was the real change, I used fresh bread crumbs, dried herbs and then mixed in the Butter until everything was moist and almost like a doughy kind of thing. I did not sprinkle over the topping as it was more like big clumps or crumble {like you would use over a dessert} and scattered pieces all over the top - this baked into a buttery, tasty crusty crumble.

Recipe adapted by me from : Mr FOOD

6 Servings

INGREDIENTS:

1 can (410g) Cream Of Mushroom Soup
1/4 cup Mayonnaise
3/4 cup Milk
2 t Dijon Mustard
1/4 t Freshly Ground Black Pepper
500g Cooked Chicken, shredded
250g Deli Ham, thinly sliced, chopped
8 slices Gouda Cheese
3/4 cup Fresh White Bread Crumbs
1 1/2 t Dried Italian Herbs
2 TB Butter, softened
Paprika, to sprinkle

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray a 20 x 20cm oven dish with cooking oil.
2.) In a medium bowl, combine the Soup, Mayonnaise, Milk, Mustard and Pepper - divide in half and pour one half in a small bowl.
3.) Add the Chicken to the remaining Sauce mixture in the medium bowl - mix well and scoop evenly into the prepared oven dish.
4.) Arrange the Ham over the Chicken followed by the Cheese {overlapping is fine} - pour the retained Sauce in the small bowl over the Cheese.
5.) Mix together the Bread Crumbs, Herbs and Butter - you should get an almost mushy dough - scatter half teaspoonfuls over the dish.
6.) Sprinkle with paprika and bake 25 - 30 minutes or until golden and the Bread Crumb crumbles are cooked and crunchy.

Remove from the oven and leave to stand 5 minutes before serving.

  1. Great casserole, Linda. Good comfort food. And less fussy to make than standard chicken cordon bleu.
    Most casseroles do become a mess on the plate, don't they!
    Thanks for sharing!
