Easy Chicken Cordon Blue Casserole


Chicken Cordon Bleu, a classic dish originating in Switzerland but embraced by French cuisine, symbolizes the best of the best, and is typically associated with dishes of exceptional complexity and flavor.

The traditional method involves pounding chicken breast until thin, layering it with ham and cheese, rolling it into a log, chilling it, and then meticulously dredging and frying it. Yet, thanks to my Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe, you can have the same amazing flavors with a lot less effort.

While French cuisine often evokes images of intricate techniques and elaborate dishes, this simplified version proves you can quickly achieve great taste. Enjoy the same delightful flavors of melted cheese and savory ham without the fuss – exceptional taste doesn’t always require exceptional effort!


  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 16 slices of ham
  • 8 slices of Swiss cheese
  • 4 oz of cream cheese
  • 2 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup of heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 tablespoon of Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 cup of butter


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large bowl mix together chicken, sour cream, Dijon mustard, heavy cream, and salt and pepper.
  3. To a greased 9×13 casserole pan, add in the chicken mixture, top with ham, cream cheese chunks, and an even layer of Swiss cheese.
  4. In a small bowl mix together flour, Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper. Dust the flour mixture on top of the cheese. Top with dabs of butter over the flour.

Tip: For a golden topping, place casserole under the broiler for 2 minutes or until flour is lightly golden colored.
