Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

Sorry I used my small crappy camera (well I use it all the time actually - it just more convenient) but the pictures suck and are always so yellow, so sorry! The casserole really isn't this yellow and really is delicious!! I found a recipe similar to this on PINTEREST but I didn't like it so I made some adjustments to it and came up with the following ... hope you enjoy it!

Makes 4-6 Servings


1 1/2 Cups Instant Rice
2 - 4 Chicken Breast
4 slices of Swiss Cheese
5 slices of cut up ham
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream
Italian Bread Crumbs

1) Preheat oven to 350. Coat 9 x 13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.

2) Cook rice according to directions on box. Cube chicken and cook. I seasoned my chicken with pepper, dried minced garlic, tiny bit of garlic salt and a tiny bit of "Morton" Nature's Seasons - Seasoning Blend.

3) Spread cooked rice in bottom of baking dish. Arrange cooked chicken pieces over top of rice.

4) Layer slices of Swiss cheese on top of chicken.

5) Then layer cut-up ham on top of the Swiss cheese. (I just used deli lunch meat style ham.)

6) Add one more more layer of Swiss Cheese

7) Mix cream of chicken soup, milk, and sour cream together in a small bowl- it should be a tick mixture. Spread on top of ham.

8) Grab a small handful of the bread crumbs and sprinkle on top of soup mixture.

9) Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until bubbly. (When mine was done cooking I put it under broil to get the top a little more crispy.) Serve with garlic bread and a fresh green salad. Enjoy!

***Notes: The second time I made this I added about 3 tablespoons of  Dijon mustard to the soup/milk/sour cream mixture, and it was really, really good. I also didn't used the bread crumbs the second time. I crushed up some Ritz crackers and put them in a skillet with some butter (about 2-3 tablespoons) and just melted the butter and all the crackers soaked up the butter and then sprinkled them on top. I liked it way better. This is one of my favorite top 10 dishes!!!!!
