Traditionally

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bake in a Bowl

Making Chicken Cordon Bleu is quite involved and in order to serve many people, you’d be in the kitchen almost all day pounding the chicken, stuffing the chicken, rolling the chicken, and then breading the chicken. I’m tired just thinking about it. Ha! Not really, but kind of. I don’t really want to spend my time doing that sort of work every time I want the flavors of chicken and ham in a creamy Dijon sauce. Do you?

It’s Quick and Simple

This dish is a bit of a departure from tradition without sacrificing taste. That, my friend, is my kind of meal. I love simple ingredient meals that pack a big ol’ flavorful punch! You can’t get better than that. The ingredients in this pan of bubbly-baked-goodness are right at your regular grocery store. No trekking across town to the gourmet or exotic spice store. This is down-home fare…and it’s delicious!!

The Best Part!

This dish can easily be made ahead the night before and baked right before you serve it. It also freezes beautifully so you can make a couple at once and stock up! It can be paired with any vegetable that you may like. We love buttered broccoli, sautéed asparagus, or a simple salad with our ranch dressing. Doesn’t that sound yummy? I’m telling you… you’ve got to make this! So, go on, get in that kitchen!

Ingredients:

  • 2.5 lbs. chicken breasts cooked and shredded
  • 1 lb. deli-sliced black forest ham (I buy Boars Head)
  • 1 tablespoon French’s Chardonnay Dijon Mustard
  • 8 oz. brick of cream cheese
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning (divided)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder (divided)
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder (divided)
  • 1 ½ -2 cups freshly shredded Swiss cheese
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 stick salted butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

Cook and shred the chicken breasts. I used my instant pot on high for 20 minutes with a cup of chicken stock at the bottom.

Shredded Chicken

While the chicken is cooking…Dice up the sliced deli ham and set aside. Next, make the cream sauce. In a medium-sized, microwave safe bowl heat the cream cheese to soften it. It needs to be very soft but not cooked. Remove from the microwave and add in the sour cream, heavy cream, dijon mustard, and half the amount of all spices. Whisk these ingredients together until smooth. Take a taste. Add salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

Making the Cream Sauce in Bowl

Add diced ham slices to the hot cooked chicken. Pour over the cream sauce and stir the mixture well.

Adding Cream Sauce to Chicken and Ham

Once all the chicken and ham has been coated in sauce use your spoon to spread it out level into a 9×13 casserole dish.

Chicken and Cream Sauce Mix

Top the chicken mixtures with the shredded Swiss cheese.

Shredded Cheese Topped Chicken Cordon Bleu

In a small bowl add the almond flour and the rest of the seasonings including a bit of salt and pepper and stir to mix. Sprinkle this mixture all over the cheese layer.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Toppings

In another small bowl melt the stick of butter and then pour over the almond flour to help it crisp up. You may also cut small bits of butter and lay them on top of the almond flour layer if you don’t want to melt it. It will melt in the oven.

Bake at 375 for 30 min. After the full 30 minutes of baking… you may broil the top for about 3 – 5 minutes at most. But be SURE to watch it can burn very quickly. You just want the top to be bubbly and nicely browned.
