All the flavors you love i chicken cordon bleu are here in this cozy casserole. There’s ham, Swiss cheese, a hint of Dijon, and, of course, chicken, without any of the stuffing, dredging, and searing of the original. Instead, this effortless chicken casserole comes together all in the same pot, with cubed ham and chicken gently cooked in a gooey, cheesy sauce. Then it all gets transferred to a baking dish, topped with prosciutto bread crumbs (has anything ever sounded better?), and baked until golden, bubbling, and delicious. It’s comfort food taken to a whole new level!

What is the “blue” in chicken cordon bleu?

In the case of this dish or its original inspiration, “bleu”โ€”which is French for “blue”โ€”doesn’t refer to the color or even the cheese, but rather the “cordon bleu,” a blue ribbon that was worn by the highest-ranking knights beginning in 16th-century France. The term may refer to either the excellence of the dish or the fact that the chicken was wrapped around the delicious fillings like a ribbon. Of course, in this pan, there’s no wrapping involved.
