Crock-Pot Chicken Cordon Bleu




Crock-Pot Chicken Cordon Bleu

If you are looking for a really flavorful yet super simple recipe for dinner then I urge you to give this recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu made in the slow cooker a try. It was a HUGE hit with the family and I was told by all to put this in the “cook again” recipe file.

The only thing I would have done differently in this recipe is use smaller chicken breasts. The ones I used were HUGE and were a bit much to eat. If you look at the picture you can see that these were some big chicken breasts!

I know that many people shirk at recipes that call for “cream of” soups, but I find that there are times that it is worth using them. Chicken is one of those meats that just does not get more tender the more you cook it in the crock-pot. It just gets drier. The key to cooking chicken in the crock-pot is to cook it with liquid, and this cream of chicken soup & milk mixture does the trick there, and then make sure you don’t overcook your chicken. I would check chicken at the lower point of the time range given and only cook longer if your chicken is not cooked through. But it really should be.

I hope you enjoy!

Crock-Pot Chicken Cordon Bleu

Ingredients

4-6 Boneless/Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 (10.75 Oz.) Can Cream Of Chicken Soup
1 Cup Milk
4 Oz. Sliced Ham (I Used Honey Ham)
4 Oz. Sliced Swiss Cheese
1 6 Oz. Box Herb Or Chicken Flavored Stuffing (Such as [Stove Top]|http://www.kraftbrands.com/stovetop/] brand
1/4 Cup Butter, Melted
1/4 Cup Water

Instructions

  1. In a bowl whisk together the cream of chicken soup and milk until combined.
  2. Pour half of the soup & milk mixture in the bottom of a 6-7 quart oval crock-pot.
  3. Arrange chicken breasts on top of the soup mixture.
  4. Lay slices of ham and then slices of Swiss cheese over the top of the chicken breasts.
  5. Pour remaining soup & milk mixture over everything.
  6. Cover top of chicken, ham & Swiss cheese with the dry stuffing mix.
  7. Pour melted butter and water over the top of the dry stuffing mix.
  8. Cover crock-pot and cook on low for 4-6 hours or on high for for 2-3 hours.

Notes

Because I used very large chicken breasts I only used 4. But if you were using smaller breasts you can easily use 6. You might also want to try this with chicken tenderloins.

Serve with your favorite vegetable, a side of some nice crusty French bread and you have dinner on the table!

    This looks scrumptuous and so easy. I’ll be doing it in my solar oven, before long. Crock pot cooking is so easily transferred to the solar oven and you have such wonderful recipes. Thanks for sharing. Come visit when you can.

    I found this recipe on pinterest and said to myself “finally an easy slow cooker that is as easy as it claims (and it looked so scrumptious too!!!)” So I decided to try it today to make for lunch for the rest of the week (I’m a teacher so this is a must) and it was quite good. My husband enjoyed it as well, even though it was not for him lol. The only thing is that I accidently put cooked it on high instead of low like I wanted and the chicken wasn’t dry but still not juicy. Next time I will pay attention :-)

    I made this Saturday night and thought my fiance was skeptical about the stuffing mix part of it, he LOVED it. Thank you!

    What type of honey ham would you use for this recipe? From the deli counter? and how many pounds should I buy of the ham? And how many pounds of cheese. Thanks so much!

      You can buy your ham at the deli counter or even just packages of it in the deli section of the store.

      The recipe calls for 4 oz. of ham and 4 oz of cheese. So you don’t need pounds of it. Just 4 oz.

    I made this for supper and we thought it was pretty good. I cooked it on high, and during the third hour of cooking, it went from not done to overcooked. I would make this again, but I think I’d do it on low. Thank you for the great idea!
