Where is it from?: There are many different stories about the origins of the famous dish commonly known as chicken cordon bleu. Despite sharing a name with the famous culinary school in Europe, chicken cordon bleu (or “blue ribbon chicken”) is a seemingly American dish. The recipe developed over the years based off of the many different, yet similar, dishes in European countries like Switzerland and Italy. According to some sources, the American version appears to have been created in the mid-1940s using more regional ingredients such as sliced deli ham and Swiss cheese. No matter who invented the dish, we think our version is the perfect weeknight dinner recipe because we’ve taken the hassle out of rolling each piece of meat and turned this into a tasty one dish casserole.

What is the nutrition of this recipe? I am on very low fat diet.

Hello! The nutrition can be seen by clicking "Show more" above. :)

I followed the directions, but it was very, very salty. I did not add any salt. I think between the soup (high in salt) the ham (salty) and the Swiss cheese (also salty) was just too much. I will try it again either using low-sodium soup or replacing the soup with cream. I think it would be much better.

I didn't make this dish, but had it at my cousin's house last Sat. and it turned out looking exactly like the picture and tasted delicious. I will make it soon though because it was very good and we all enjoyed it.

Served this to company and it was a hit. There was plenty for 4 of us with lots of leftovers for my hubby and I to share during two additional meals.

Made for tonite, pretty close to the recipe. The recipe for six was generous, so I froze half unbaked for another time. Didn't have any precooked chicken, so I braised two pounds of tenders in broth, and added some poultry seasoning to the liquids. I got too many bread crumbs on top, but my fault for being too old to measure everything. The original cordon blue is rather dry to hold the roll ups together, and this is similar. Don't expect a lot of 'gravy' in this casserole. We enjoyed it, and look forward to the other one in the freezer. Will probably add a little more milk to it. I didn't bread crumb it, so I won't make that mistake again!

I have been making a version of this for years. I use Stove Top Stuffing mix leave out the bread crumbs butter. Put mixed stuffing on bottom, add meats part of the cheese, top with soup mix bake. Top with more cheese sprinkle with paprika, bake til cheese is melted serve.

Using the stuffing sounds awesome !

I think I will follow the suggestions here and add some pasta to this casserole. It seems like the taste is good, but it just needs some more comfort in this comfort food. Lol

In the picture I see items that are green in the casserole. What did you add to the recipe in the picture, that you did not list in the recipe?

I think it's possibly herbs from the Italian bread crumbs. If you use Google images and search "Italian bread crumbs", the photos all have green "specks" in them.

This really needed to have something to hold it together. It was runny when served. Taste was good so I added noodles to the leftovers and served with tossed salad. Even better the next day with the additions.

Very good! Hubby will be making this at the firehall for his crew with a couple of sides.

This was excellent, thank you. I had to substitute cream of chicken soup because one of us is allergic to mushrooms, but we thought it was wonderful.

Fast and easy recipe that definitely mimics the flavors of Chicken Cordon Bleu. This can easily be made with deli roasted chicken. Family loved it...added to my list of go-to meals.

was good but i will serve leftovers with noodles to make it more filling.

I would really appreciate it if all your recipes, not just diabetic ones, contained nutritional values.

Would really appreciate not having recipies repeated so many times. Have printed them more than once Maybe a symbol or mark to say they are repeats would be helpful. I have a huge recipe collection and enjoy these very much but do't like the duplicates. Sorry, just me!

I thought this was excellent as did my hubby! No complaints here!

If you don't like mushrooms you can use Cream of Chicken or Cream of Celery soup, but it won't taste as good. Also, I made this dish - and it came out exactly as shown in the photo. I served it 'with' (not over) a side of steamed broccoli, and a salad. You need to let it 'rest' for a little while, and then you can cut it like a lasagna. It should be fairly firm. Also, don't use Fat Free soup, as that will make it come out watery.

my family dosn't mushrooms, can you use something else?

Hello! We recommend substituting with cream of broccoli or cream of chicken soup, if you're not a fan of mushrooms. Enjoy!

This was quite tasty - but not at all like the picture shows. Would make again, but would a much smaller dish than 9x13. Would serve over something like pasta, rice or potatoes.
