I made this dish as part of the Crockpot March Madness Tournament, hosted by 365 Days of Slow Cooking. This Chicken Cordon Bleu will go head-to-head in the first round of the tournament with Creamy Corn Chowder (which I will blog about tomorrow!). After making and comparing both dishes, I’ll choose a “winner,” which will go on to face its next opponent in Round 2.
This is not your typical “toss everything in the crockpot” dish, as there was some assembly required. I’m glad I made it on a Saturday so I had time to put everything together nicely before rushing off to work in the morning! However, I really liked this dish. It’s something different that I don’t normally make, and I really liked the combination of flavors.
Chicken Cordon Bleu
8 small chicken breasts
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. thyme
8 thin slices of ham
4 slices swiss cheese, cut in half
1 onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
16 oz. jar Alfredo sauce
10 oz. can cream of chicken soup
Place onion, carrots, and garlic in the bottom of your crockpot. Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and thyme. Wrap a slice of ham around each breast and top with a slice of swiss cheese. Secure with one or two toothpicks. Place chicken breasts on top of onions.
In a medium bowl, combine the Alfredo sauce and the cream of chicken. Pour over chicken breasts. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Serve over rice. Enjoy!
