A quick and easy family favorite and a good way to use leftover chicken or turkey. My youngest son is finally interested in learning how to cook and lately has ventured beyond the heat and eat survival He made this tried and true family casserole last night and as always it turned out perfect.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Love the flavors of chicken cordon bleu but not the work? Then this casserole is for you. It's filled with chicken cordon bleu flavors, but an easy-to-put-together dinner. There's tang from the Dijon, a bit of smoky flavor from the ham, and it's filled with chicken. Thanks to the cream of chicken soup and Swiss cheese, it's super creamy. On top, the Panko/butter mixture forms a tasty little crust. This is very filling so you won't need any sides. An easy dinner casserole.
