A classic Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe is slightly different than the recipe we are sharing today. It is topped with a Dijon sauce while ours is in a creamy sauce that has no mustard in it. While the chicken is breaded and fried in a classic recipe, we skip the breading in this recipe and bake the casserole in a sauce.
How to Make Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole-
- Slice chicken breast in half and then in half again.
- Prepare the cream by combining sour cream, seasonings, and water.
- Take chicken breast, add ham to it and cheese and roll up the chicken. TIP: We used a whole slice of ham and a slice of cheese cut in half and stacked. You can add as much ham and cheese as desired.
- Coat the bottom of the casserole dish with some cream.
- Then add the chicken to the casserole dish.
- Add remaining cream over the chicken and spread evenly.
- Cover dish and bake.
What kind of cheese do you use for Chicken Corden Bleu?
Swiss cheese is used most often in a Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe. However, we’ve substituted for Provolone and Mozzarella and had great results.
What is the best sauce for Cordon Bleu?
A mustard sauce typically is poured over the chicken but since this is a casserole, the cream we use is slightly different but still as amazing.
What side dish goes with Chicken Cordon Bleu?
This casserole is best when served with mashed potatoes. The cream may be poured over the mashed potatoes as gravy and it tastes wonderful. However, you can do the same with rice or even your favorite pasta.
Can I freeze Chicken Cordon Blue casserole?
YES! This casserole freezes well. Prepare per instructions, DON’T bake. Cover with foil and freeze. Thaw before baking and bake per instructions.
NOTE: Instead of one large casserole dish, you can divide the ingredients into two 8″x8″ or 9″x9″ dishes and freeze separately.
