Chicken Cordon Bleu Bake

I got this easy chicken cordon bleu recipe from a friend years ago. I freeze several half recipes in disposable pans to share with neighbors or for when I'm pressed for time myself. —Rea Newell, Decatur, Illinois

  • Makes
    2 casseroles (6 servings each)

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (6 ounces each) reduced-sodium stuffing mix
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted

    Freeze option: Cover and freeze unbaked casseroles. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Chicken thighs taste great in this recipe, and they're usually cheaper at the grocery store than chicken breasts.
  • Sharp cheddar cheese has been aged longer than regular cheddar. As cheese ages, its flavor becomes more pronounced. Using aged cheese in a recipe can add complexity and rich flavor, even to humble favorites like mac ’n’ cheese.

      I use chicken thighs vs breast when available. More flavor and moist.

      Very good , simple recipe, can be made on a budget. Stuffing, isn't a lot of people's favorite . We probably all disliked it as a kid. Dont dismiss it though as a great ingreadent in many recipes. Grow up give it chance. (Or dont comment) did not have 2% milk. I added a spoon full of mayo to 1% fat free milk. Turned out great. One pan will work. Spread soup mixture evenly. Do not layer ingredients thicker in the big often times deeper dish. ( or will be dry)

      Has anyone used just one large baking dish instead of two?

      Super comfort food. Love these one dish meals. So easy to make. I poached my chicken. Strained the poaching liquid and used that instead of milk in the sauce recipe. VFE.
