While browsing Pinterest an undetermined amount of time ago, one of the suggested Pins was a picture of Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole. I’d never made the dish before and had only had a few versions of it at various restaurants. From the picture, it looked simple enough to make and really, really good. I pinned the photo and forgot about it. After all, Pinterest is an addiction in itself and there is no way we can make or craft every single thing that makes its way onto our boards, right? However, when I was making a grocery list last week and going through previous Pins for meal ideas, this one stuck out again. I added the ingredients to my grocery list and made it a few nights later.
This is a fairly easy recipe, however, there is a lot going on at once during preparation. From cooking the chicken, preparing the stuffing, dicing ham, and chopping broccoli, an extra set of hands would have been useful. With this in mind, next time I’ll be sure to have some of the prep done in advance. It does make quite a bit. Between my husband and myself, we’ve each had two decent sized meals and there is enough for one more large serving. Hubby really likes this casserole and has given me his approval to make it again anytime.
