  2. Spread chicken evenly along bottom of baking dish and top with the ham. Then layer the cheese slices on top of ham.
  3. Sauce: Melt butter in small sauce pan over medium heat. Quickly stir in flour, and mix until just combined, about 30 seconds. Slowly pour in the milk while continuously whisking. continue to whisk constantly until sauce begins to thicken.
  4. Add in lemon juice, mustard, paprika, salt and pepper and stir well. Bring sauce to a low simmer while still whisking. Simmer until thickened, about 2-3 minutes. If sauce becomes too thick, thin it with a bit of broth. Remove from heat and pour over casserole.
