I tried a new recipe this week…Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole. Let’s just say my hubby is in love. Honestly I think he told me three times that he liked it even asking where the recipe came from….two days later he asked if there were any more leftovers of it! Even though he likes leftovers, that still says a lot. He suggested it might make a good brunch casserole.
Halve, cook and slice 6 chicken breasts.
Layer sliced bread-6 slices or so- into a greased 9 x 13 pan.
Layer with chicken and 1/2 pound chopped ham.
Layer 1- 8 oz pack cream cheese cut into small cubes of the top of that.
Layer 1 cup of Swiss cheese over the top of that.
Top with a large package of frozen broccoli.
Layer 2 cans of cream of chicken soup over that.(undiluted)
Sprinkle with 1 cup Swiss cheese.
Bake uncovered in a 350 oven for 50-55 minutes.
One thing I loved about the recipe is that I made it in the morning and baked it for supper. I think this is easily one of those recipes you can bring to a sick friend or prepare and keep in the refrigerator overnight. This is a recipe I am going to keep track of…I am thinking that making a substitute of turkey instead of chicken would make an amazing way to use up Thanksgiving leftovers.
