Chicken Cordon Bleu- Slow Cooker Style
Here is a quick and easy recipe for you with little time.
4-6 slices ham
4-6 slices swiss or mozzarella cheese
4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, flattened to 1/4 inch
1 (10.75- ounce) can cream of chicken soup, condensed
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
So... it says to flatten the chicken breasts, however, I simply cut mine in half (they were thick). Then I placed the ham and cheese on top and folded it over. To tie it all together I stuck in a couple toothpicks. Easy breezey. I then placed it all in the slow cooker.
Next, I mixed the milk and cream of chicken soup. Once it is well mixed, I poured it over my little chicken creations. Now, the recipe called for Italian season breadcrumbs. I'm sure that would taste nice, but I just sprinkled some Italian season over the whole deal, put the slow cooker lid on and called it good (I was on my lunch break... little time).
I then cooked it on high for 4 hours.
The home smelled delicious when my hubs and I walked in. He thanked me for working so hard on our meal... little did he know I quickly threw it all in and got on pinterest until I had to head back to work (guess I did have time for the bread crumbs after all). :)
It was so good! Lot's of flavor from the Italian seasoning and cream of chicken. Also, the chicken was super tender.
