Crockpot Chicken Cordon Bleu
December 22, 2010
I found this recipe on Stephanie O’Dea‘s fabulous A Year of Slow Cooking blog which is full of easy gluten-free crock pot recipes. I’ve just made a few more tweaks of my own. Delicious, “fancy” and super easy.
- 4 chicken breasts pounded thin
- 8 slices of ham (check labels)
- 8 slices of Swiss cheese (check labels)
Place a slice of ham and a slice of Swiss cheese on each flattened chicken breast, then roll it up and secure with a couple toothpicks. Place in your slow cooker seam side down. Top each breast with another slice of ham and slice of cheese.
For the sauce, use either:
- 1 can of Progresso Creamy Mushroom Soup
- 1 TBSP butter
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 TBSP cornstarch
- 1/2 cup chicken broth (check labels)
- salt and pepper to taste
- 8 oz sliced mushrooms
Melt the butter in a medium sauce pan. Whisk the cornstarch with the milk and add to the melted butter. Stir in the chicken broth, salt and pepper and bring to a boil, then turn down heat and stir until thickened. Pour the sauce over the chicken in the crock pot and add in the mushrooms. Cover and slow cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours. Serve over rice. Impress your company :-)
