Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole Ingredients

My casserole version of cordon bleu is always a hit in my family, and everyone keeps asking for more. Here’s a note on the ingredients:

  • Shredded Chicken – any leftover chicken will work, but Rotisserie chicken is my favorite because it is super flavorful. 
  • Ham – Any type you prefer. 
  • Butter – use unsalted butter or avocado oil.
  • Cream Cheese – makes the sauce super creamy.
  • Dijon Mustard –  this ingredient is used for regular cordon bleu, so we used it for that authentic flavor.
  • Garlic Powder – you can also use fresh garlic if you want a strong flavor.
  • Swiss Cheese – You can use either shredded cheese or slices.
  • Lemon Juice – freshly squeezed.

Tips and Variations

  • Vegetables: add mushrooms, broccoli, or cauliflower.
  • Replace the cheese sauce with ranch dressing sauce. It will taste incredibly delicious.
  • Don’t overbake your chicken casserole; otherwise, the chicken will become too dry.
  • Broil: If the top of your chicken cordon bleu casserole isn’t as golden brown as you’d like it to be, set the oven on broil for a few minutes. 
  • Use a different cheese if you’re not a fan of Swiss Cheese. Use mozzarella, provolone, or cheddar instead.

Storing Ideas

  • Fridge: You can store the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to seven days.
  • Freezer: I do not recommend freezing this dish because the cheese sauce will change its texture and taste.
  • Reheating: You can reheat the leftovers in the oven for about five minutes.
