Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu Bake Recipe


While there are many versions of Chicken Cordon Bleu, the classic seems to be a chicken breast topped with a thin slice of ham and a chunk of Swiss cheese; it is rolled, dipped in crumbs, and baked or fried. A cream sauce usually accompanies this dish. Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta Bake incorporates all of these components, along with pasta, for a delicious one-dish meal. Obviously it isnít the classic version, but it is much easier and quick enough that it can be served on a weeknight. Actually, it can be made the day or night before and baked just before itís time to eat.

The inspiration for this dish came from Kari Coates, a busy beauty and nail salon owner, who finds time to make this for her family often; itís one of their favorite dishes, and it needs only a tossed salad as an accompaniment.

16 Servings

1 pound penne pasta, cooked al dente and drained

1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1 10 3/4 ounce can condensed cream of chicken soup
2 cups milk
3 cups grated gruyere or Swiss cheese, divided

2 cups lean ham , diced (about 1/2 pound)
2 to 3 cups cooked chicken breast, cut into 1/2" chunks (about 1 pound)

1 cup panko breadcrumbs, or other dry bread crumbs
  1. Preheat oven to 350į.
  2. Place the pasta in a large bowl.
  3. Mix the cream cheese, soup, and milk (blender or food processor is fastest, but a whisk works just fine).

  5. Spread the mixture evenly in a 9 x 13" casserole dish.
  6. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top and scatter the breadcrumbs over the cheese.
