Bringing back the recipes... Crock Pot Chicken Cordon Bleu

ChickencordonbleuIt has been a long time since I have posted any recipes here.  I have been in a bit of a cooking rut.  It is hard to think creatively when you have a crawling baby who just wants to eat anything.  Lately, I love finding recipes on Pinterest.  Recently, I tried this recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu.  I threw the ingredients in my crock pot in the morning and that evening I served 5 children and 4 adults.  Every single bit was eaten and everybody loved it.  I will say, this recipe is not healthy but very yummy!

Here is the link to the original recipe.  I made a few changes.  Here's what I did...

1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cloves garlic (pressed)
1 c milk
1/2 lbs sliced ham (I got Boars Head Black Forest from my deli)
1/4 lbs baby swiss cheese
5 chicken breasts
2-3 c herbed dry bread stuffing mix
1/4 c melted butter

-Mix soup, milk and garlic together in small bowl
-Pour about 1/3 of the mixture into the bottom of crock pot
-Cut chicken into cubes, place in crock pot
-Chop ham, sprinkle on top of chicken
-Cover with swiss cheese
-Cover with stuffing mix
-Pour melted butter on top
-Cook on high 4-6 hours or on low 2-3 hours

A few notes... the dish is a bit on the salty side, low-sodium cream of chicken soup and a non-salty ham (don't get Virginia ham) will work best.  If you are trying to feed a ton of people and want to double the recipe, I might doing a second layer of all the ingredients.  I served with green beans and rolls. 

Hope you enjoy!  This week I think I am going to make this recipe.

I'm trying this one tonight for a crowd - I don't normally try a "new one" on visitors, but it sure looks good! Thanks for sharing! I compared the 2 recipes, and stickin with yours

This sounds (& looks!) really good Holly. I'm not usually a big Cordon Bleu fan, but I'll have to give this one a try. The fact that it's in the crock pot makes it even more appealing! :)
