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!

I loved the flavor of this and so did everyone I served it to. (It was a good meal to bring to our friends who just had a baby.) Mine did not turn out creamy, but more brothy and you couldn't really detect the cheese. I'm not sure if it's because I used too much milk or the whole spelt flour. I'm sure it could be tweaked, and besides it was fine this way. Instead of rice/pasta I suggest trying it over Focaccia bread, yum!

I was kind of disappointed with this.. Although it tasted pretty good the sauce came out grainy.. I looked up what may have caused this and a lot of sites said to turn off the heat when mixing in the cheese. Not sure if I'll try this again or not

This was just fabulous. I didn't use the celery or mushrooms and I used sliced deli ham that I just piled up and cut into squares. I also subbed cubed deli style swiss cheese. There was more than 8 oz but the sauce was so good I could have just sat there and eaten that with a spoon. Yum. I served it over noodles.

Made this a long time ago! We enjoyed it immensely! Thanks for another great recipe to add to my favorites! I left out the mushrooms, not a fan of them.

This is a lovely casserole. Nicely flavored, easy to prepare. I prefer not to cook with canned soup so I appreciate this recipe very much. Thanks for sharing

My son has been on a chicken cordon bleu kick lately and has requested it every week for the past couple months. He decided it would be ok to give this a try as a quick fix alternative. It just didn't measure up.
