I have to say that I’ve been enjoying the cooler weather. It’s been making baking and trying new recipes so much easier! When I found this recipe from Tasty Kitchen, I was super excited to give it a try. Chicken, ham and melty cheese with a yummy sauce and crunch top…what more could you want!
Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole
In a sauce pan melt your butter and whisk in your flour and create a rue over medium heat. Don’t brown the rue, as soon as it starts to bubble around the edges, slowly whisk in your cold milk. Then add in your corn starch, lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper. Continue to whisk frequently until your sauce thickens. This will take a little bit of time, but don’t turn up your heat…you don’t want it to scorch. Once your sauce is thickened, pour it over your chicken, cheese and ham. Make sure you get it covered completely.
Next, melt your butter and mix it with your bread crumbs until they are all moist. Sprinkle it evenly over the casserole.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the edges bubble. Let it cool for 5 – 10 mins before serving. Enjoy!
