Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole
I need easy in my life. Sometimes people assume that food writers have it figured out. And always have meals that look like they came from Bon Appetit.
We struggle. And forget dinner. And we eat regular food just like everyone else. My secret weapon has always been the crockpot, and now the instant pot. And now my air fryer!
I love meals I can just set up, walk away from, and come back to dinner just about ready to eat. This super simple recipe with crockpot chicken breast recipes is one of my favorites for a walk-away kind of meal. I love crockpot chicken recipes, don’t you?
I play around with a lot of make-ahead-type meals in the crockpot and the instant pot. Lucky for you I share the best of them with you. Unlucky for my family we have to eat the good and the bad.
An Easy Crockpot Chicken Breast in Recipe that isn’t Shredded Chicken!
FINALLY. I see so many shredded meat recipes for the crockpot, thankfully this one doesn’t have shredded chicken breast. Just chopped chicken breast meat!
What’s the Surprise Ingredient??
Ahhhh yeah the surprise ingredient is…STUFFING MIX. Mmmm it takes the place of the coating and really brings this crockpot chicken recipe together! It’s such an inspired addition.
This is a really simple crockpot casserole recipe that I LOVE, the set and forget kind. Those are my favorite kind of crockpot meals. Especially one that is cheesy and gooey, everyone loves this dish!
If you’re looking for another chicken-based slow cooker meal try this Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki! It’s so tasty!!
Know Your Crockpot
Does your crockpot cook really high? Or just barely cook on low? It’s important to remember that all crockpots cook differently. Some run hot or cool and you should know what yours does.
If low on your crockpot doesn’t cook meat completely in 4 hours, you may want to start this casserole out on high and then lower the temperature.
I always recommend making a new dish in the crockpot on the weekend, when a delayed dinner isn’t going to hurt too much. Do NOT make this or any crockpot recipe for the first time when you have friends coming over. Always give them a trial run!
Love easy meals you can start and walk away from??
Too SAlty for you?
I know the salt in this can be too much for a lot of people. I get it! So use low sodium ham AND Healthy Request Cream of Chicken Soup mix to help lower to the salt content in the recipe. You can ALSO find Low Sodium Stove Top Stuffing
- 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast
- 1/4 cup of butter, melted

- 1 pound ham, sliced lunch meat works well here--use low sodium to cut salt
- 1 6 ounce box of instant stuffing mix
- 1 cup of milk
- 2 cups of shredded swiss cheese
- cut chicken in bite-size pieces
- stir the soup together with the melted butter
- put a small amount of soup in the bottom of the crockpot

- top with 1 cup of the shredded cheese
- add half of the dry stuffing mix over the cheese
- layer on the remaining ham, cheese, and dry stuffing mix in that order
