I love this casserole. I also love the fact that it doesn't use any "cream of" soups. Plan in advance - the dish must be prepared and refrigerated for two hours and then sit at room temperature for 1 hour before baking. I got this wonderful recipe from Paula Deen's magazine.
- 6 slices sourdough bread, crusts removed
- 6 slices swiss cheese
- 6 slices provolone cheese
- 1⁄2 cup Dijon mustard
- 5 slices prosciutto, thin slices, julienned
- 1 1⁄2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and cut into strips
- 4 large eggs
- 2 cups half-and-half
- 1⁄2 cup sour cream
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
- 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 1⁄2 cups caesar-flavor croutons, crushed
- Lightly grease a 13x9-inch baking dish.
- Layer bread, Swiss cheese, and provolone in prepared baking dish.
- Spread mustard over provolone cheese.
- Sprinkle with prosciutto, and top with chicken strips.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and half-and-half.
- Whisk in sour cream, fresh herbs, salt and pepper.
- Pour egg mixture over layered casserole.
- Cover, and refrigerate for 2 hours.
- Let sit at room temperature for 1 hour before baking.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Cover with crushed croutons.
- Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until hot and bubbly.
My family loved this casserole. It was very flavorful and the chicken turned out very moist.
This recipe was ok but I won't be making it again. It had very little flavor and the combination of chicken and the egg covered bread just really didn't thrill me. Thanks for a new twist but it's just not for me!
