Chicken Cordon Bleu is an old-school recipe that tastes amazing but takes FOREVER to make. You have to pound the chicken thin, roll it up with ham and cheese, and dredge it in eggs and bread crumbs before cooking it in a deep fryer. I know some people love it, but that’s just too many steps. Enter Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole! It’s an easy layered casserole dish that gives you all the flavors of Chicken Cordon Bleu without all of the fuss.

Ingredients for Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

How to Make Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

This recipe is so much simpler than making traditional Chicken Cordon Bleu and gives that same delicious ham and cheesy flavor.

Step 1: Combine the liquids in a small bowl (soup, water, and juice) and whisk.

Step 2: Next, layer the chicken in the bottom of a greased baking dish, followed by the ham, sliced cheese, soup mixture, and stuffing mix. Pour the melted butter on top of the stuffing.

Step 3: Lastly, cover and bake for 40 minutes, then discard the foil and bake for 20 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • If you don’t want to use canned soup in this recipe, you can make your own cream of chicken soup on the stovetop really easily. There are tons of how-tos online.
  • You can double this recipe and bake it in two casserole dishes. I love to bake one in a disposable tin and bring it to a neighbor.
  • Make a freezer meal. Make this dish and bake it as directed, then cover and freeze. When you want to eat it, just defrost and warm through in the oven.
  • You can serve this as is or put it over rice to make it stretch even further. Plus who doesn’t love more carbs?

  1. Ruthie L.

    Julie you have turned me into a pretty good cook. This recipe was absolutely delicious. It was so easy to make and tasted like a million bucks. Following you Faithfully love all your recipes.

  2. I absolutely adore you! But your comment about making an double batch and taking one to a neighbor made me love you even more. Keep up the good work <3

  3. The chicken cordon bleu casserole was amazing. We used partially thawed chicken strips and ham dices but otherwise followed the directions. The kids had a great time helping put it together, and everyone loved it, even hubby who isn’t a casserole fan. Definitely going in our recipe box!

  4. I’m 40 years old, never learned how to cook, and in my 14 years of marriage I’ve fed my poor husband burnt foods, dry meats, weird textures, spaghetti 3 times a week, and even food poisoned him once!

    He’s been so patient and kind, but it really sucks! With this recipe though, he raved about it, and even made it a point to tell me the left overs were delicious too!

    So to finally feed him something that was effortless to make, cheap, and delicious… like for real, girl. I feel like crying. 🤣

    And even better, this is the kind of recipe you can just “know” how to shop for and make. I won’t have to stress over a long list of ingredients and directions.

    Thank you. 🥰 you’re amazing.

  5. Thank You for making these 5 ingredient casseroles… I’m not afraid to try them, I usually have most ingredients in my house. Most of all, they make me look good because they are so delicious‼️💚🧡❤️

  6. Hi Julia! I’ve finally got around to trying one of your recommended meals. The Chicken Cordon bleu and oh my! So yummy & the best part, one dish!! Thank you for continuing to share such yummy and easy recipes with us!
