How to Make Chicken Cordon Bleu Bake

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Clean and cut 4 chicken breasts in 1/2 and layer in a 9×13 pan. Then you will layer on all of the ingredients on top of the chicken.

Start by pouring the cream of chicken soup on top of the chicken and spreading evenly with a spatula. Then, layer on the 1/2 lb honey ham deli meat slices evenly, followed by the 2 cups of shredded cheese.

Finally, add the dry chicken stuffing mix to finish the layered chicken cordon bleu bake recipe and cover with tin foil.

Place the covered chicken cordon bleu casserole in the preheated oven for 60 minutes or until the sauce is bubbling and the chicken is cooked through.

Allow, the casserole to rest for 5 minutes after pulling out of the oven.

If you don’t love the crunchiness of the stuffing, you can make the stuffing per the box directions and cook uncovered.

We like to serve chicken cordon bleu with my grandma’s green bean recipe (find that recipe here). It also pairs well with a salad (try this simple one), bread rolls and butter. Add in this delicious cheesy hashbrown casserole recipe too.

I use 1/2 lb honey ham lunch meat but you could also use Canadian bacon. Traditional chicken cordon Bleu calls for baked ham of some type. If you have leftover ham, you could use it for this recipe.
