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.  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 hubby will enjoy it no matter the season.

What to serve with a Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole ?

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.

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!
