Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole
A few weeks back I was in charge of the art center at preschool. As I was spreading out the newspapers, I ran across this recipe and gave it a try.
1/2 cup milk
Bread crumbs (I used the italian bread crumbs that I buy in the can at costco)
2 lbs. skinless chicken breasts, cut into chuncks
8 oz. swiss cheese, cubed (I used shredded mozzarella since it's what I had...next time I would use the swiss just to get a better taste)
8 oz. ham, diced
1 can (10 3/4 oz.) cream of mushroom soup
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, whisk egg and 1/2 cup milk. Place bread crumbs in a shallow dish. Dip chicken in egg mixture, then in crumbs, coating well. Heat oil in skillet. Brown chicken until golden. Place chicken in a baking dish. Add Swiss cheese and ham. Mix mushroom soup with milk; mix well and pour over all. Bake about 30 minutes or until tender and bubbly.
JR LOVED this dish...which is a feat in itself! Dave & I were just okay with this dish...I was hoping for more flavor...that's while I'll use the swiss cheese next time since mozzarella just doesn't have much flavor when it's melted.
