Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

Chicken casseroles are a great way to put dinner on the table quickly and easily. You just have to look at the ingredients you have on hand and use them.

 Condensed cream soups are a great ingredient to have in your pantry. With them, you can make Easy Chicken and Rice Casserole, Best Boneless Chicken Casserole, and Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole. All different, all equally delicious!

How To Make Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole?

  1. We start by making the sauce. Add the milk, cream cheese, dried minced onion, parsley, garlic powder, salt, and pepper to taste in a small saucepan. Con on medium heat, frequently whisking until the cheese and milk are well incorporated, and a smooth texture is achieved. Set aside.
  2. While the sauce is cooking, boil the pasta according to the package instructions. Drain and return to the pot.
  3. Add the cubed chicken and ham and pour in the sauce and shredded cheese. Mix everything.
  4. Place the pasta mixture into a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.
  5. Top the pasta mixture evenly with the panko breadcrumbs and drizzle the melted butter on top.
  6. Turn on the broiler on high and broil for about 5 minutes or until lightly browned.

Make-Ahead Method

If you wish to make this casserole ahead of time, you can make the pasta mixture, place it in the baking dish, wait for it to cool completely, and cover it with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for up to 3 days until you are ready to bake it.

I would recommend waiting until the day you will bake it to add the breadcrumbs and melted butter. If you add them ahead of time, they will become soggy and not crisp up in the oven.

Cooking Tips

  1. If you feel the sauce is thick, use a bit of pasta cooking water to thin it a bit. 
  2. If you don’t have penne, any short pasta will work.
  3. Be careful when broiling the casserole. It can burn quickly.

It is called Cordon Bleu after the famous French cooking school, not because the recipe uses blue cheese. The recipe actually calls for Swiss cheese.
