Chicken cordon bleu casserole

I know I have mentioned this before, but I have a very picky family.  This Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole is always a huge hit with my husband and kids!  I mean, how could I go wrong with juicy chicken and ham in a rich and cheese sauce?

My version of this popular casserole leaves out the pasta and rice because, well, chicken cordon bleu doesn’t have pasta or rice!  Plus, that’s not keto!

I could have added a “breadcrumb” layer using almond flour or something similar, but I didn’t want this casserole to be 1,000 calories per serving.


To get started with this low carb casserole, we first have to get the chicken cooked.  This can be done several ways, but my favorite method is with my Instant Pot.  I use my tutorial for Instant Pot Chicken Breast and I have perfectly cooked chicken ready to chop up!

Next up, dice 8 ounces of ham slices and throw that on top.  I like to use smoked ham, but any ham will work just fine.

Now we’re going to make the sauce.  I use a hand mixer to mix together the softened butter, softened cream cheese, dijon mustard, white wine vinegar, and water.  The sauce should be quite thick so it will need to be spread onto the ham and chicken mixtures.  Doesn’t that look scrumptious!

Now it’s time for more cheese!  You can use Swiss or provolone, or heck, any cheese you want cause you’re the boss!  I used 8 slices of provolone because we are not big Swiss fans.

I don’t use Swiss in my Crustless Quiche, either!

Now it’s time to bake this monster up until it is bubbly and golden on top.

      Excellent flavor! Both of my kids liked it which is saying a lot lol. The only thing I will say is the sauce turned very watery after baking. I’m not sure what went wrong bc I followed the recipe to a T. Not sure if it’s normal or what. But other than that this recipe is delicious and we will definitely make it again!!

        That is normal because of the water released from the chicken

    Saw that someone else asked and I would do like to know How much chicken Is used by weight. Very helpful to getting the correct recipe proportions.

    A very tasty casserole! My husband says it’s a keeper! I cooked the chicken in the IP with the all purpose seasonings from your IP recipe. I made the cream cheese sauce per the revipe, but when I served up the dish the sauce had turned to liquid. I was hoping it would be creamier. Is this normal? I love your recipes and videos.

    Can you tell the amount of chicken by weight? Chicken breasts can be different sizes. Mine first attempt had too much chicken. Second attempt too little and the butter made it very oily and liquidy. Flavor excellent, but trying to tweak it.

    What could you use instead of butter? I cannot do cow dairy. I will sub the cheese with goat cheese.

    Now that’s one decadently delicious chicken dish! I mean, who could turn down all that luscious cheese? I think it would even be tasty with a layer of riced cauliflower on the bottom. Got to try this one soon.

      The riced cauliflower is a great idea!
