|Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole|
This de-constructed chicken cordon bleu goes together in a jiffy–and tastes like the real deal!
This is a terrific casserole for when you feel like having fancy chicken cordon bleu, but just don’t want the fuss!
The casserole de-constructs the original dish and there’s no pounding, stuffing or rolling.
To make the meal complete, I used some fresh broccoli. I used fresh mainly because I had some florets in the crisper and the fresh is cooked in approximately the same time it takes the casserole to cook, so the broccoli doesn’t have that “overcooked” taste.
|Garnished with edible pea sprouts|
Frozen can be used in a pinch, but you might end up with a sauce that’s too thin because of the water in the frozen broccoli. The sauce is a thinnish sauce anyway, but if you don’t mind, then it’s OK to substitute frozen veggies. No matter what the sauce’s consistency, it still tastes good!
|Quick and easy|
I garnished this casserole with pea sprouts–totally edible and delicious to boot. Adds a nice earthy flavor in the mix.
