Hi there! Are you scouring Pinterest for dinner ideas for the week? If so, look no further! I have another great casserole dish, that I think you’re going to like. And surprisingly, it doesn’t call for cream of chicken. 🙂 Instead, this Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole calls for yummy ingredients like ham, Swiss cheese, freshly squeezed lemon juice, Dijon mustard, and is topped with crunchy, parsley-topped, panko crumbs.

This recipe was found on Tasty Kitchen and was a big hit with the adults AND the kids, which always makes for a perfect, new, go-to recipe that makes life easier! You guys know that we are all about easy dinner recipes, and we really think you’ll love this one. It’s obviously a take on Chicken Cordon Bleu but in a casserole form and since everyone loves casserole, we know you’ll love this dish.

    Recipe on tasty kitchen calls for half the butter (4 tbsp) as opposed to your 8 tbsp. Is that a misprint or is it actually that much butter? I just made it and it seemed like a lot of butter so wanted to double check. Thanks!

    Could you add noodles to this to stretch the number of servings? Or maybe rice? I’m thinking this would be great for a family get together but could be a little expensive for our large family.
