I love making casseroles any time of the year. They’re typically easy, delicious, and filled with ingredients I always have on hand. This Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole has become the latest family-favorite of ours!

Layers of chicken, ham, Swiss cheese and a super simple sauce, this casserole comes together easily. You bake it to perfection then serve it over cooked egg noodles, rice or whatever your heart desires. 

CHICKEN CORDON BLEU CASSEROLE

Have you ever tried a traditional Chicken Cordon Bleu entrée? It is something worthy of being a masterpiece. A chicken breast is rolled around a succulent slice of ham with Swiss cheese in the middle. This piece of chicken is then breaded and baked until the chicken is cooked through. Once you slice it open all the cheese begins to ooze out, and it becomes a thing of beauty.

This recipe gives you everything that’s delicious about this dinner, but without all the hassle. Each chicken breast is sliced into bite-size pieces and then topped with panko breadcrumbs, milk and eggs. Next, is a layer of ham and Swiss cheese. It then gets topped with a creamy chicken mixture and then baked until it’s bubbling and golden.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 small chicken breasts, cut in 1-inch pieces
  • 1 & 1/3 cups milk, divided
  • 1 large egg
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 8 ounces deli ham, cubed
  • 4 ounces Swiss cheese, cubed
  • 1 can (10.75 ounces) cream of chicken soup

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with non-stick spray. Lay the chicken pieces into the bottom of the prepared dish. Spread out evenly.

In a large bowl, whisk a 1/3 cup of milk and the large egg together until combined. Pour this mixture evenly over the chicken pieces. Sprinkle the panko breadcrumbs all over the top. Season with salt and pepper. Top the breadcrumbs evenly with the ham and Swiss cheese.

Whisk chicken soup and the remaining 1 cup of milk. Pour mixture evenly over everything. Cover the pan with foil. Bake for 35 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 10 more minutes. Remove from the oven and let it stand for 5 minutes before serving.

SIDE DISH OPTIONS

I like to serve this casserole over cooked egg noodles or steamed white rice. Both give a solid, good carbohydrate base, so you feel full and satisfied. A small side green salad goes a long way as well to help balance everything out. Another vegetable side that will make this an elegant meal is my Parmesan Roasted Broccoli.

SERVINGS

This casserole serves 6 adult-size servings.

ADDITIONS

Try adding crumbled bacon over the top just as the dish is finishing. It will blow your mind at how much flavor it adds to the dish! If you want to really make this a 5-star presentation just add a little minced parsley over the top after it’s finished baking to add a pop of color.

  1. Sounds delish! Just checking though, the chicken that you are breading is raw, right? That makes the most sense but just thought I would ask. Definitely going to the store to pick up the ingredients for this this weekend! Thanks Holly!

  2. I’ve made this before and my daughter absolutely loved it and asked for it to be put into our normal rotation! I’m wondering if this is something that could be prepped beforehand and frozen?

  3. Hello! This dish is amazing however I did everything as it says in the directions and I had to bake it longer than it states. Just wanted to share that, just double check. But perfect recipe, and in my household everyone got seconds as well! 🙂

    Thank you!

  4. I am so glad I found this recipe! I originally was going to make chicken cordon bleu roll ups, but was unsuccessful pounding out the chicken. I thought I would try to covert it to a casserole and this was perfect! Easy, yummy, will be making it again!

  5. I wasn’t able to find your recipe for the homemade cream of chicken soup, that you used in this chicken cordon bleu casserole?

  6. 5 stars
    This was amazing!! Made as written and wouldn’t change a thing. Thank you for a great and easy recipe!

  7. 5 stars
    Winner, winner chicken dinner. The only change I made was skipping the first step of breading the chicken chunks. I sprinkled the Panko on top before baking. This one will be on the regular rotation.

    I tweeked this recipe. I seasoned and pan fried my chicken and then shredded it. Used diced ham and added chopped onions and garlic to my shredded chicken and ham mix. To make the sauce I used 1 can of cream of chicken, a block of cream cheese, heavy whipping cream, salt and pepper then mixed it all together. I placed the cheese in the baking dish after and baked it covered for 35 mins at 350 and uncovered for 10 mins. It was so delicious!

  9. 5 stars
    I made this tonight for the first time and it is delicious. We served it on top of wild rice with a side of broccoli. Thanks for another great recipe. 🙂
