Crockpot Chicken Cordon Bleu

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.

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 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 :-)
