My family loves it when I make hearty casseroles like Cheeseburger Casserole and Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Casserole for dinner. I knew this Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole would not only be a hit with the entire family, because they already love my original Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe, but I knew I would love making it because it is an easy casserole recipe!

What is Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole?

Baked Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole is basically Chicken Cordon Bleu, deconstructed. All of the same ingredients found in a classic Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe are found in this recipe. I wanted it to have the same crispy topping and creamy sauce as well.

A basic Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe consists of chicken wrapped around ham and Swiss cheese, then coated with some kind of bread crumb topping, and baked to perfection. The cream sauce is optional, but if you ask me I think it’s a must.

For whatever reasons, the saltiness of the ham and the meltiness of the Swiss cheese perfectly compliment the chicken. I guarantee that if you make Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole for dinner, your entire family will love it!

How to Make Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

This recipe is so easy, in fact, that it almost feels like a cheat. You see, the most difficult part of making Chicken Cordon Bleu is the fact that you have to pound the raw chicken breasts and roll them around ham and Swiss. This easy recipe is actually a shredded cordon bleu casserole meaning no rolling required! You could make the same kind of easy casserole for a traditional chicken parmesan recipe.

To Make Cordon Bleu Casserole

  • Shred rotisserie chicken.
  • Combine chicken with ham and swiss cheese. Top with breadcrumb topping.
  • While the casserole is baking, make the sauce.
  • Serve the hot casserole with sauce.
