Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

Y'all know I love my casseroles, and this one is great for 'repurposing' those leftovers. Got leftover chicken? Leftover turkey? Ham? You can use any and all of them in this casserole! I cooked a turkey for New Year's Day dinner. Not just any turkey, but a 15 lb turkey. And it was just the 5 of us...4 considering my son ate about one ounce of turkey. So...needless to say, there were leftovers. I knew I needed to come up with some creative ways of using it up, b/c my kids wouldn't go for the usual 'turkey hash' or turkey sandwiches. I decided on this casserole, and just swapped the chicken for the turkey.
My family didn't even realize I pulled a switcher-roo. They enjoyed the casserole, and I was able to repurpose some leftovers!

Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

l  lb.  boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces (or 2-3 cups chopped turkey)
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup (I used Campbell's Healthy Request)
1 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard (I was out, so used 1 tsp mustard powder)
2 cups chopped ham
6 slices Swiss Cheese 
2 cups cubed stuffing mix
  • Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  • Mix soup and mustard powder in medium bowl; stir in chicken and ham. 
  • Spoon into 2-qt. casserole sprayed with cooking spray; 
  • Top with cheese and sprinkle with stuffing mix. (Alternately, stuffing can be prepared and placed on top to bake)
  • Bake 35 to 40 min. or until heated through. Cover with aluminum foil the last 10 minutes if it starts to brown to much.

What do you do with leftovers? Do you have super picky kids to feed? I can't say anything, I pretty much despise eating leftovers myself, so whenever I can turn them into a completely different dish it's a good thing.

  2. I'd eat that! I usually end up eating leftovers for lunch, which I don't mind as long as it's not TOO many days in a row. I have my limits :)
