Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole
Here's a wonderfully easy Chicken Cordon Bleu casserole that is great for a pot luck or a delicious meal any day of the week!
This is great served over egg noodles, rice, mashed potatoes or just over some toast points.
Here's what you are going to need:
3 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into chunks
1/4 cup of hot sauce
8 ounces Panko bread crumbs (you may not need all of it)
8 ounces of Shredded Italian Blend Cheese
8 ounces of lean ham
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 can of cream of celery soup
2 soup cans of milk (about 2 1/2 cups)
Oil for frying
Here's what you need to do:
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Whisk together the eggs and hot sauce in a medium bowl. Toss in the chicken chunks.
Put your Panko bread crumbs in a dish and toss a few of the chicken chunks in at a time and press the bread crumbs into the chicken. Just use maybe a half cup at a time of bread crumbs so you don't waste them.
Heat about 1/2 inch of oil in a frying pan until hot. Fry the nuggets until golden brown.
Turn and fry the other side until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
Dice the ham.
Spray a 9 x 13 glass baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Arrange the nuggets in the bottom of the baking dish.
Sprinkle the cheese on top of the nuggets. I didn't have quite enough shredded cheese so I used some provolone cheese too.
Arrange the diced ham on top of the cheese.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the soups and milk.
Pour over the top of the casserole.
Bake in a preheated 350° F oven for 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Serve over egg noodles, rice, mashed potatoes or even toast!
I hope you enjoy this easy chicken cordon bleu recipe!
