This gourmet classic has never been easier.  With just a few simple ingredients, this Chicken Cordon Bleu Bake is going to be on your table in no time!  I can't wait to share with you soooooo...

Let's Get Started!



Chicken Cordon Bleu Bake Recipe:
*Prep Time: 10 min *Cook Time: 1 hour *Difficulty:  Easy  *Servings: 6-8

Ingredients:


  • 1 c Fully Cooked Chicken, Chopped
  • 1 c Fully Cooked Ham, Chopped
  • 1 8 oz Package of Cream Cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 16 oz bag of Frozen Green Beans
  • 1 can of Jumbo Sized Biscuits, cut into 1/8ths
  • 2 c Swiss Cheese, Shredded
  • 3/4 c Milk
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 1 tsp Thyme
To begin you will need to preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  



After that you will need to combine the cream cheese and 1 cup of the shredded cheese into a microwave safe bowl.


Place the bowl into the microwave for 1 minute, stirring halfway through.


After a minute remove from the microwave and stir together.


Now pour in the milk and...


Add the salt, pepper and...


Thyme.
Whisk together until smooth.


To a greased 13x9 baking dish add the chicken and ham.

Let's take a second and talk about the chicken and ham.  I am using leftover chicken in this dish.  I knew I was going to be making this, so I made some extra chicken the other night, but you can use boiled, rotisserie, roasted, deli, canned WHATEVER kind you want.  The same goes for the ham.  I used a diced ham steak, but you can use leftover ham, deli ham, any kind you like!


Now add the frozen green beans.


For the bread portion of this casserole I like to use canned biscuits.
You will need to cut each biscuit into 8 pieces, yes EIGHT pieces.  These will grow and expand in the dish, so you will want them to be small.


Add the pieces of biscuits to the casserole dish.


Now pour the sauce over everything.

I love that you can mix all of this into one dish.  I am not about that dish washing life.  lol


Take a spoon and mix everything together.  You want to be sure that everything is COVERED in that amazing sauce.


Take the second cup of shredded cheese and sprinkle over the top of the casserole.


Place the Chicken Cordon Bleu Bake into the preheated oven and bake 45 minutes to 1 hour.  I baked mine for one hour, but every oven is different.


After one hour you will have this golden, bubbly brown, cheesy masterpiece.  I love that this is an entire meal in one dish.


Packed full of outstanding flavor, this Chicken Cordon Bleu Bake is guaranteed to be a family favorite!  Juicy chunks of chicken, savory bits of ham, tender green beans, and the sauce..OH THE SAUCE!  Yes, I know you are going to love this so get in the kitchen and make it TONIGHT!  

And as always...

Happy Reading, Happy Eating, and Happy Living,
