No pounding, stuffing, rolling, or dipping with this Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe! This one is “the easy way”.  

Now, did that get your attention?

Chicken Cordon Bleu - the easy way!

With this recipe, you have all the wonderful flavors of the “hard to prepare” recipe with the ease of  quick preparation. Absolutely true! I like that, don’t you?

Chicken Cordon Bleu – the easy way,  simply involves the layering of the ingredients. (That’s my kind of recipe!) Keep the ingredients on hand and you can have company over for a delightful meal on short notice.

It takes only 35 minutes to cook, so when the first guest arrives, I pop the dish in the oven and start with appetizers. This gives just enough time for the dish to bake.

When I have served this meal, my guests have always asked for the recipe so I know you’ll enjoy this , too! It is fancy enough for company, yet, simple enough for everyday.



6 chicken breasts – cut fairly uniform in size – pat dry

6 pieces of  thin sliced ham  ( I use turkey ham, too) approx 1/16 inch thick

1 box chicken flavored stuffing mix

1 can cream of chicken soup ( when out of this, I’ve used cream of mushroom)

2  tablespoons Dijon Mustard

6 slices of Swiss Cheese

chopped, fresh parsley



Make the chicken flavored stuffing according to directions on the box.

In a greased 9 x 13 pan, place chicken breasts

Place a slice of ham on top of each chicken breast.

Mix Dijon Mustard with the soup in the can (no extra dirty dishes required)

Spread soup mixture on top of breasts

Sprinkle stuffing on top and bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes.   Plus extra 3-5 minutes with cheese on top.

Chicken Cordon Bleu- the easy way!


Hint: Do not mix thighs and breasts as they get done at  different times. This amount of time is for chicken breasts only.

Remove from oven. Place slices of Swiss cheese over each chicken breast and bake for 3-5  minutes until melted.

Serves 6
