Easy Swiss Chicken Cordon Bleu




This is such an easy dish and can be adapted easily to feed a crowd or just a few. I served this for my mothers birthday and invited my parents siblings so it fed a crowd.  It starts with a sauce at the bottom of a 9x13 pan layered with boneless skinless chicken, ham, swiss cheese and prepared stuffing on top. How easy is that. This amount will serve 6.

Sauce

  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1-1/2 cups half and half cream or milk
  • 1-1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  1. Melt the butter in a sauce pan, stir in flour to dissolve and cook a few minutes.
  2. Add both the cream, chicken broth and mustard.
  3. Cook until thickened. 
  4. Pour the sauce in a 9x13 pan.
Layer the following:
  • 6 pieces of boneless skinless chicken pieces, browned on each side in a skillet with a little oil.
  • 6 slices of thinly sliced ham
  • 6 slices of swiss cheese
  • 1 package of prepared stuffing
Cover with foil and bake for 30-40 minutes in a 350 oven.

  3. when you say "prepared stuffing", do you mean to top the dish with the dry bread cubes, or prepare the stuffing as listed on the box directions and then top it?

  4. I prepared the stuffing as listed on the box directions and then topped it on the chicken. It really is quite tasty.

  5. I used all chicken breasts when I made this recipe and then held my breath since my husband hates, hates, HATES these because he claims they are always dry. Well not this recipe. Because they are underneath all the other ingredients they were moist and delicious. Thanks so much for this recipe, it's a keeper!

    1. I personally have not tested it after it has been frozen, but I don't see why not. If you try it, let us know how you find it to be after it is frozen and reheated.
