"Chicken breasts baked with ham and Swiss cheese, topped with an unusual mixture of sour cream, white wine, creamy soup and spices. This is a bit different than normal Chicken Cordon Bleu, but everyone seems to like it much better!" — Jennifer

skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

condensed cream of chicken soup
ground black pepper
1 (6 ounce) package
herb-seasoned dry bread stuffing mix
I make another recipe very similar to this one so I incorporated some changes that worked really well for me. I mixed together the soup with 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup lowfat evap. milk (or you could use regular milk), and substituted 1/4 cup dry sherry for the wine. Then I sprinkled garlic powder and fresh ground pepper (you don't need salt) directly over the chicken breasts, placed the ham and cheese on each piece and poured the sauce evenly over the top. I recommend preparing the stuffing according to the package directions. It turns out really good this way. If you do use dry stuffing be sure to mix it with some melted butter and maybe a little water to moisten it up a bit. They will still be firm but after baking they will soften up. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes, then remove foil and bake another 20 minutes. I got a great result with these changes.
i think the garlic can be deleted. my family was not crazy about this one..
Easy and tasty. A whole bag of stuffing is way too much for a 9x13 in. dish. Probably half would do just fine.
I made this Saturday night and it was a hit with the whole family. We all like Cordon Bleu, but it's time consuming to do it the regular way. This was easy, fast and delicious!! I didn't change a thing in this recipe.
I make this for guys all the time and I swear it makes them fall in love with me! :) If you don't like the saltiness, buy low-salt cream of chicken soup. Also, it does need more time to cook so give yourself an extra hour or so for cooking time.
Very easy to make. We had company over to dinner and it was really enjoyed by both the parents and school age kids. Only made one addition to the recipe - I added about 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard to the sauce... I just love the stuff. I used rather large chicken breasts, so cooked my dish for a full hour.
I have been making this dinner and a quicker variation of it for years. Very tasty and easy. If I'm pinched for time I saute the chicken breasts in butter,garlic salt & pepper. While they simmer I make the sauce (slicing the ham into thin strips) while I boil a pound of noodles. Drain the noodles and lay them on a platter. Top with chicken breasts and ladle the sauce over the chicken. I either skip the stuffing or use the stovetop method to make it and serve along side. Add a green vegetable...we love brocolli and serve. Delicious.
GREAT DISH, I USED BONELESS, SKINLESS CHICKEN THEIGHS IN PLACE OF BREASTS, THEY ARE A LOT JUCIER. THANKS FOR THE RECIPE!
