Casseroles are always a comforting choice during the chilly winter season. The heat of the oven creates a cozy vibe that extends beyond the kitchen and the dish brings a welcome warmth to our tummies.
On the menu today: Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole!
Did you know traditional Cordon Bleu has international origins? Even though the name itself comes from the French term for “blue ribbon” (a first-place prize and stamp of excellence), the dish was actually made popular in Switzerland! We’re creating it in casserole form to make it simple to prepare and delicious to serve.
Grab an apron and your smallest assistants and let’s get started!
You’ll need the following ingredients:
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 lb. chicken breast, cubed
½ lb. turkey ham, diced
1 pkg. stuffing, dry
2 to 3 cups frozen broccoli florets, thawed and drained
1 can low-fat cream of chicken soup
½ cup fat-free milk
2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
Salt and pepper, to taste
Our Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole serves 6 to 8 people and reheats well too. Bon appétit!
