The happy life of a happy wife…











{March 28, 2011}   Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

Recipe adapted from: Allrecipes.com

LOVED THIS!  No, really, I loved this one!  And the next day, reheated, it was just as good.  Mmmmm.
It isn’t the easiest, quickest casserole out there, but for me it was worth the effort.

Make a little egg/milk bath

Soak your chicken and get our the bread crumbs

 

I used panko

Fry the chicken pieces (Don't they kinda look like the chicken nuggets at Chick-Fil-A?)

Chicken + Ham + Cheese

Add the soup mixture

Bake it up

Serve over egg noodles

 Ingredients:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup plan panko bread crumbs
  • 1 cup oil (for frying)
  • 8 ounces shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 8 ounces fully-cooked ham, cubed
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 bag of egg noodles

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Beat egg and 1/2 cup milk together until combined.  Put the breadcrumbs in another bowl.  Set aside.
  3. Cut your chicken into chunks, placing the pieces in the egg mixture to coat.
  4. Using tongs, transfer the coated chicken into the breadcrumbs, pressing down a little bit to coat.
  5. Heat oil in a large skillet to 375 degrees F.  Carefully fry breaded chicken cubes in hot oil until golden brown on all sides, then remove and drain on paper towels.
  6. Place chicken cubes in a glass baking dish.  Add the ham and the cheese and gently stir to combine.
  7. In a small bowl, combine the soup and 1 cup milk.  No need to heat it, just pour directly over the casserole.
  8. Baked for about 30 minutes, until golden brown and bubbly.
  9. Meanwhile, prepare egg noodles according to package directions.  Once cooked, I stir in a little butter to prevent sticking and give them some buttery flavor goodness.
  10. Serve warm.
