Recipe by PSU Lioness
I adapted this recipe from one that I found on the Pillsbury website to get a casserole that is more like the traditional chicken cordon bleu. The flaky, sweetness of the crescent rolls in this recipe knocks the taste out of the park! Serve with broccoli for a complete meal.
- 1 (8 ounce) can refrigerated crescent dinner rolls (I used the reduced fat variety)
- 2 tablespoons salted butter
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
- 1 lb chicken, cooked and shredded
- 16 slices swiss cheese (8 slices for bottom and 8 for top)
- 1⁄3 cup mayonnaise
- 1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
- 1⁄3 cup light sour cream
- 2 -3 tablespoons Dijon mustard (to taste)
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon honey (optional. We didn't use it)
- 1 teaspoon horseradish sauce (we used regular prepared horseradish)
- 1⁄8 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 lb deli ham (we used thin shaved honey ham)
