Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole ~ the SCRATCH version

Hi everyone, Tamy here filling in for Emily again. This is another recipe that was full of boxed, canned or preserved ingredients that I changed to “scratch” ingredients.  It was another great success and will be a wonderful cold weather dish this winter.

CHICKEN CORDON BLEU CASSEROLE
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
2 cups cooked chicken pieces (2 large breasts)**
1 cup ham steak, diced
1 bunch green onions, sliced thin
4 cups cooked egg noodles
1/2 cup grated gruyere cheese
2 slices swiss cheese
salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoon butter
3 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • Lightly spray 9×9 baking dish.
  • Melt the butter in saucepan.
  • Whisk in the flour, poultry seasoning and salt and cook until bubbly. 
  • Remove from heat and gradually whisk in liquid. 
  • Return to heat and cook, stirring, until smooth and thickened.
  • Set aside to cool.
  • Cook noodles, drain and set aside to cool.
  • Spray a skillet with PURE.
  • Over medium high heat saute chicken pieces and onions until chicken is cooked through.
  • Add ham pieces and heat through.
  • To the cooled soup mixture add the mayonnaise, parsley flakes and blend well.
  • Stir in the chicken, ham and onion mixture until well mixed.
  • Fold in egg noodles gently.
  • Arrange in baking dish.
  • Bake 20 minutes.
  • Top with cheese (see picture above).
  • Bake 10 more minutes.
  • Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

**This is a great recipe to use with rotisserie chicken pieces!

Thanks Rita.

Chris it is the perfect stick to your ribs meal but yet not too heavy!

LOL Min I’d like to say it was to see if anyone noticed or just to mess with your mind, but in actuality I had 2 slices and the rest grated and that was all I had left so I got “artistic”.
