Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

No canned soup in this one. I serve it over rice or noodles. Great way to use up leftover chicken and/or ham.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray/grease a 3-qt casserole dish.
  2. Place cubed chicken and cubed ham in a large bowl; set aside.
  3. In a large saucepan on medium heat, melt butter. Add in onion, celery and mushrooms and sautee 5-6 minutes or until soft.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together milk and flour until smooth; pour into saucepan. Add in salt, pepper, paprika, and parsley; stir well and heat through.
  5. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir in shredded cheese. Stir often until cheese is melted.
  6. Pour sauce mixture over chicken/ham mixture and toss to coat. Pour into prepared casserole dish; press down so all meat is covered with sauce. Sprinkle breadcrumbs over top.
  7. Bake, uncovered at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until bubbly and just beginning to brown.
  8. Serve over hot cooked noodles or rice, if desired.

This was AMAZING!! My family loved it. We usually make Chicken Cordon Bleu, but it's a lot of work, and can sometimes dry out. This was so moist and delicious. I don't think that we'll make the original again. The only thing that I did differently was to make a roux with the butter, flour and milk. Thanks for the great recipe!

Wow was this GREAT! I was heavy handed with the cheese (mix of swiss & mozzarella) so I thinned the sauce with some chicken stock. I didn't use mushrooms as I had none on hand and used celery flakes instead of real celery. I used a store roasted chicken and deli ham. So easy and delicious!
