Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole Recipe

One of my husband’s very favorite meals is Chicken Cordon Bleu.  We have tried all kinds of variations of it, but this one is at the top of the list!

Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole Recipe:

1 (6 oz) pkg. chicken flavored stuffing mix
1 (10 3/4 oz) can condensed cream of chicken soup

2 cups cooked, chopped ham
6 slices of extra thin Swiss cheese

Preheat oven to 375ºF.  Prepare stuffing as directed on package.  Mix soup and mustard in medium bowl; stir in chicken, broccoli and ham. Spoon into 2-qt. casserole dish sprayed with cooking spray; top with cheese slices and stuffing.  Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until heated through.

    Do you think this would work as a freezer meal? I like to double and triple stuff, so that I can put a couple in the freezer (not that this one would be too hard to pull together fresh).

  2. says

    I made this tonight and it was fabulous. For clarity, because it wasn’t specifically noted, don’t cook the broccoli before you add it. I didn’t and it was perfectly cooked. Also, I seasoned my chicken (I used boneless thighs) while I cooked it and it was super yummy. My bocce team loved it :-)

    I will make this again!!

    so, my husband and i have never been big chicken cordon bleu people, but your recipe looked so good we had to try it! it turned out amazing. i baked my chicken in a small dish and drained then completed the rest. next time though, out of personal preference, i think i’ll be using less mustard. overall totally amazing! 😀

  4. says

    I made this last night for the family and it was a big hit, it was so quick and easy! I didn’t cover it while baking so the broccoli still had a nice crunch and the stuffing was nice and crispy, just the way we like it. This will def be on the dinner menu in the future. Thank you !

  5. says

    Thank you for this recipe, it turned out great, however my family doesnt care for the mustard so I replaced the mustard with 2 tablespoons of sour cream and it was so good. This recipe is filed away in our Yum-O file!

  6. says

    Frozen broccoli florets should work fine. Or you can just buy a couple bunches of fresh broccoli in the produce section of the grocery store. Just rinse it off well, trim off the thick stem and add the top which is the florets. Good luck and way to go on starting cooking! These are user friendly recipes! :) -The Six Sisters

    I made this for dinner tonight. I thought I had a can of soup, but turns out I didn’t so I substituted sour cream. I used shredded swiss and mixed it into the chicken/ham then threw some on top before adding the stuffing. I used a mix of broc & cauliflower because that’s what I had in the freezer. Not only did it smell amazing, but it was delicious as well. Thanks for sharing!

  8. says

    I work from 7 am to 7 pm and am looking for things the man could throw in the oven when he’s ready for dinner. Is this something I could throw together the night before, cover and store in the fridge? Thanks for the great recipes ladies!

  9. says

    Made this tonight with a can of green beans instead of broccoli. My roommate and I loved it, and I really liked that the prep wasn’t time-sensitive, so I could prepare the meal in between keeping my 4-month-old occupied. Definitely adding this to my recipe book!

  10. says

    I’m making this tonight. I just salt and peppered some chicken breasts and cooked them on low in the crock pot today. Then just shredded the chicken and threw the rest of the recipe together. I’m excited to see if the broccoli cooks nice since I haven’t had much luck with fresh broccoli in the past. Chicken Cordon Blue is a favorite of mine so if this compares at all I will be so happy.

  11. says

    This turned out really yummy! I can hardly get much of a response out of my husband when it comes to me trying out new recipes. He’ll say, “It’s not bad.” He might as well just say, “It’s not good.”

    But on this one, the hubs really enjoyed it and said it was “pretty good.”

    So that’s saying a lot!

  12. jose renteria says

    I just made this today for my girlfriend I was nervous since I am a novice chef , but wow this was so easy and came out so delicious . Other than one small change I would make to it to suit our tastes it is a wonderfully easy and tasty recipe.

  13. Angela Bianco says

    My family & I LOVE ‘Chicken Cordon Bleu’, but I don’t make it very often because it’s a bit time consuming to prepare.

All of your recipes sound fantastic, so I now signed up for your Newsletter. Thanks for your terrific recipes, and I’m very much looking forward to receiving even more of them in your Newsletters.

    Making this right now and it smells yummy! Some people were saying it was a bit salty so I got low sodium chicken stuffing (stove top makes). That should help a lot. You can also look for low sodium cream of chicken soup although harder to find.

  15. Cristal says

    Trying this now, but forgot one very important step… forgot to cook chicken first. So I added milk so it doesn’t dry out since the chicken will have to cook… we shall see how it turns out!

  16. Nicole says

    How many people does this feed? I’m having a large party (100+)and serving this as the main dish. Trying to decide how many casseroles I’ll need (with standard meatballs and roast beef, and sides of course). Thanks!

    This receipe is amazing!!! I used 2 cups of shredded swiss cheese and steamfresh broccolli, but it worked soooo well!

    My husband doesn’t like stuffing so i am going to use stuffing bread crumbs mixed with butter and parmesean next time.


    • Mare says

      I am making this tonight for the second time in less than 2 weeks. Everyone enjoyed it, but to comment on a previous question, I boiled the chicken breasts in low sodium chicken stock and added some herbs and a bay leaf. My husband thinks boiled chicken is tasteless, but he had no complaints about the dinner. Its a winner..

    • Cyd says

      If it is completely thawed, you just need to be sure it is heated through (that is if it has been cooked before freezing). May take about 20 to 25 minutes. You may want to cover it with foil so that it doesn’t burn or brown too much on top. Just watch it closely.

      • Emily says

        I am wanting to make this as a freezer dish (to use postpartum). so if it’s cooked before freezing you’d recommend cooking covered for 20-25 mins also at 375? OR would you recommend making it all but not baking and freezing immediately? If so would the baking time be the same thawed overnight and bake @375 for 35-40 minutes?

        • Cyd says

          Hi Emily. You could really freeze this either way. The chicken is already cooked in this recipe. The main thing is to be sure it’s heated all the way through. It works best to have it completely thawed. Just keep a close eye on it and you will be fine. The cooking times should be pretty close to what you put in your comment.

    • Noelle says

      I made it and really liked it. The only thing I think I will change is the broccoli. It made the left overs smell and taste pretty nasty the next day. I’m going to make it again tonight with frozen peas. I think that is going to be fantastic!

  18. TK says

    Preparing the stuffing by package directions means cooking it first and then putting it on top of the casserole and then baking the entire thing at 35-40 minutes? Doesn’t the stuffing dry out?

  19. Alice Shockley says

    This was great! I boiled 4 frozen breasts (some were really small) and a couple frozen thighs because I needed to get use them. I used frozen broccoli that I just thawed in hot water for a few minutes. I didn’t have any Dijon mustard, so I used about 1/2 tbsp. of spicy brown. I just used the deli-sliced ham lunch meat, cut into small pieces. I used low fat soup. My husband and I didn’t think it was salty at all! Maybe the people who do are seasoning the chicken or using a really salty ham, because it tasted just fine to us using the regular sodium everything. This is a keeper! I’ll definitely make it again!

  20. Nora says

    Has anyone prepared this dish to be cooked later? If so, what cooking time would you recommend after being refrigerated? I want to prepare and give to a friend who just had a baby to cook and eat when they don’t feel up to cooking. Thanks for any suggestions!

  21. Heather says

    Turned out way too salty! Any suggestions to cut the sodium? I followed the recipe except used cornbread stuffing, served broccoli on the side and I added my chicken in raw and cooked it all together since thats how it is written out on the kraft website. It was ok. Would suggest using 2 boxes of stuffing though.

  22. Annette says

    I made this recipe tonight. The only difference was that I used canned chicken to make it easier and added pepper, lawrys, and minced onion. If I were to make this again I would double the amount of cheese because I love cheese and I would add another can of cream of chicken soup. I like my casseroles very moist. This was okay tonight, just not a ton of flavor.

  23. Amy Wedekin says

    I made this comfort food casserole a couple of months ago on a dreary, rainy day…. It was SO delicious. My husband loved it too! I’ve been craving it ever since then, so I’m making it tonight for dinner. The only thing I did differently was use shredded swiss cheese (probably more than the amount in the recipe) and I mixed some of the cheese in with the chicken, ham, soup mixture and then layered some on top with the stuffing. My mouth is watering as I type this.

  24. Veronica says

    Wow, this was REALLY good!! I left out the broccoli. I rinsed the ham and it was still a tab bit on the salty side so I will look for low sodium stuffing and cream of chicken next time but it was still delicious! I was a little confused about the stuffing like others commented because on the box, preparing tells you to boil the water, butter then add the stuffing so your basically cooking it. I just melted the butter in the microwave and mixed it all in a bowl and let it sit for a few minutes while it got absorbed. I cooked this dish in a 8×8 cassarole baking dish, added a layer of chicken mixture, a layer of cheese, repeated that and added stuffing to the top. I couldn’t be more happy with the dish, it’s definitly going into the rotation. Thanks so very much!!

  25. says

    How many servings does this recipe make? This casserole looks and sounds scrumptious, as it contains everything which my family and I love. When I make it, I’ll use lower sodium ham from the Deli Dept. (and chop it myself), and lower sodium Swiss Cheese. I’ll also add in a couple of ‘tiny’ sprinkles of garlic powder in order to bring out the flavors in this lovely dish… (but not enough where you could actually taste it.) We love (real) “Chicken Cordon Bleu”, but this dish is a much quicker and easier version of it when you’re in a hurry. I plan to serve it with parsleyed and buttered “No-Yolk Egg Noodles”, and a Spinach Salad. I’m anxious to make this dish, and I’m sure that it will be a huge hit with my family.

    Oy….so having pregnancy brain and being in a rush I threw the chicken in raw…is it a goner or do you think it will cook ok if I leave it in longer? I feel like an idiot…

  27. donna says

    I was going to make this tonight, but the ads on the web page are preventing me from scrolling to see the recipe!Every time I get it set, the page shifts to show the “video” ad of Hulu etc. Grrrrr
