Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

Hello? Spring? Are you out there? If someone has seen Spring, please send it my way. I'm so over this Winter. The kids were out of school yesterday because of freezing rain in the forecast. I guess it was a good call since we did end up having some ice sticking in some places. Better safe, than sorry, right?

This casserole is a perfect cold weather dinner. It's comfort food at its finest! I love how rich and creamy it was. The recipe made enough for us to get two dinners, plus a lunch for TC out of it. It takes a little bit of prep work, but it's definitely worth it!! 

Here's the recipe:

Servings: 8
Points+: 9

8 oz uncooked pasta
4 T. light butter
3 T. flour
2 c. skim milk
3/4 t. salt
1/4 t. black pepper
8 oz. 2% Swiss cheese, either shredded or torn into pieces
1/3 c. FF sour cream
2 c. chicken breast, shredded
6 oz. lean cooked ham, diced
1/4 c. bread crumbs
1/4c. reduced fat Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9" x 13" baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Cook pasta according to package.

Meanwhile, melt 3 T. butter in medium saucepan. Add four and stir until mixed. Gradually add milk and whisk until smooth. Add salt and pepper and mix again. Add Swiss cheese. Stir until cheese has completely melted in.

In a large bowl, combine pasta, chicken, ham, sour cream and cheese sauce. Stir until all ingredients are incorporated. Spread the mixture into baking dish.

In small skillet, melt remaining butter over medium heat. Add bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Stir for 1-2 minutes until lightly browned. Sprinkle this mixture over casserole.

Bake casserole for 30 minutes or until lightly browned on top. Enjoy!!

This is definitely a winner-winner chicken dinner! Add these ingredients to your grocery list and make it soon! You won't regret it!

I hope you all have a great day!

So long for today...
