Classic Cordon Bleu flavors in a simple and super comforting casserole. With the addition of broccoli, it’s a complete meal in one dish! Chicken Cordon Bleu Stuffing Casserole is a great weeknight meal and is even classy enough for company! Comforting Casseroles are where it’s at!
My kids really loved this casserole. It’s full of chicken, ham, cheese, creamy sauce, and topped with buttery stuffing. What’s not to love?! We added broccoli, too, because broccoli goes great with all of these flavors and makes it a super simple one-dish dinner that covers all the food groups. Yay!
This recipe would be a perfect way to use up leftover turkey after Thanksgiving or leftover ham after Easter or Christmas. Even leftover stuffing would work great if you have it instead of preparing a new box. The recipe calls for a little mustard in the sauce. We like to use grainy mustard, but Dijon or honey mustard are other great options.
If easy comforting casseroles are your thing, you will love this recipe!

Frequently Asked Questions about Chicken Cordon Bleu Stuffing Casserole
If I use pre-cooked chicken, should I adjust the cooking time?
If you use pre-cooked chicken, you can cut the cooking time down to 45-60 minutes or until the casserole is hot in the center and bubbling around the edges.
Does it matter what type of stuffing I use on top of the casserole?
No. You can use whatever type you prefer. You can use homemade stuffing or any type of boxed stuffing.
Can I use Cream of Mushroom instead of CREAM OF CHICKEN SOUP?
Cream of Chicken Soup will give you a more authentic Chicken Cordon Bleu flavor, but in a pinch, I am sure the flavors would still meld well together with Cream of Mushroom Soup.
I hate mustard. can I leave it out?
The amount of mustard in the recipe is small, and I promise you won’t be able to taste mustard in the final product. The acid in the mustard is the secret ingredient that gives the casserole that “hmmm, this is yummy. What is in this sauce?” 🙂 With that said, if you hate mustard and even knowing it is in there is going to make you not want to eat it, then leave it out. The casserole will still have a great flavor.
Can this casserole be frozen?
Yes, but you will need to use pre-cooked chicken if you want to freeze it. Raw won’t work well. Make sure to cover it tightly with foil and then wrap it in plastic wrap to keep it from getting freezer burn. When you are ready to cook it, let it thaw partially or all the way. The cooking time will need to be increased if the casserole is still frozen when you begin cooking. Remember: watch for bubbling around the edges and the center to be piping hot. That is how you know it is done.
Is there anything I can use besides stuffing on top of this casserole?
- 1 box of your favorite stuffing, prepared according to package directions. (If using homemade, you will need approx. 4-6 cups)
- 1-2 lbs chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 2 cups ham, cubed or in 1-inch strips
- 1 lb broccoli florets
- 1 can cream of chicken soup, plus ¾ of the can filled with milk
- ¼ cup sour cream
- 1 tbsp spicy brown or dijon mustard
- 6 large slices of Swiss cheese or 1½ cups shredded Swiss Cheese
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray and spread the chicken pieces on the bottom in an even layer.
- Next, evenly sprinkle the ham pieces over the chicken.
- Place the broccoli florets on top of the ham.
- In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the cream of chicken soup, milk, sour cream, and mustard. Pour this mixture over the broccoli. Evenly place the Swiss cheese slices over the sauce, and then evenly spread the prepared stuffing over the cheese.
- Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes. If you use cooked chicken instead of raw chicken, you can lower the baking time to 45 or 60 minutes. You want the casserole to be hot in the center and bubbling around the edges. You can remove the foil and toast the stuffing for a minute or two under the broiler if you would like.
