Instructions Checklist
  • Mix together the cream of chicken soup and milk in a small bowl. Pour enough of the soup into a slow cooker to cover the bottom. Layer chicken breasts over the sauce. Cover with slices of ham and then Swiss cheese. Pour the remaining soup over the layers, stirring a little to distribute between layers. Sprinkle the stuffing on top, and drizzle butter over stuffing. Cover, and cook on Low for 4 to 6 hours, or 2 to 3 hours on High.

My husband has been hounding me for chicken cordon bleu for a while. However it's a little tough to make with a toddler and a newborn so I was happy to find this recipe. I used 4 large boneless breasts that I butterflied and stuffed each with a slice of ham and Swiss cheese. I used a box of Stove Top stuffing mix but only added 2 tablespoons of butter. It was a hit and my DH said he would be happy to have this every couple of weeks. We will definitely be eating this again. Read More

Good not great. The chicken got so tender it fell apart which I was not expecting so that made it different than I had anticipated. It was pretty salty with the ham cream of chicken cheese butter and seasoning from the stuffing. I think next time I will omit the butter and instead pour the remaining soup over the stuffing. But I plan to make this again it's great cold-weather food. Read More

True-this is not a true cordon bleu. But its a good recipe with the same idea of cordon bleu. And its a good crockpot recipe-which I am always trying to find a good crock pot recipe. If you want you can butterfly the chicken boneless chicken breast and stuff it with the ham & cheese. Or you can pound the breast flat and roll the ham & cheese in the chicken and lay it in the crockpot with the seal side down so that it doesnt come undone (use a toothpick if you are nervous about it-just besure to remove it before serving). And cook it that way. This isnt a bad recipe but I needed to add garlic and leeks to the pot. I live for spices. I will make it again and most likely butterfly the breasts and stuff them. But next time I may add some white wine to the mix. Read More

I made this last night for company and it was a huge hit. Our friends wouldn't leave until we gave them a copy of this recipe. The one thing I did different was to butterfly the chicken and roll up the ham & cheese and stuff it inside. This worked perfectly to keep the cheese in. I will definately be making this again!!

This recipe was a hit I snuck this in on a weeknight for the fiance that "hates chicken cordon bleu". She definitely does not hate it after this and even asked me to make it again. I did try it withe one BIG change. Instead of adding the box of stuffing I added a box of those cheap scalloped potatoes to the top and about half of the seasoning packet from the boxed potatoes. It turned out phenomenal! Read More

Based on the previous reviews I waited until the last 1-2 hours before I put the cheese and stuffing in and it turned out great! If you use larger chicken breats it's a little hard to serve out of the crock-pot so next time I may just cube the chicken and ham. Read More

This slow cooker recipe needs some flavor enhancement but it was a hit with my company. When I make it again I will had some thyme and perhaps some garlic and I will use a crock pot liner as the bread crumbs stuck to the crock pot securely around the edges! Definitely will cook it again. Read More

This was an amazing idea for what turned out to be a wonderful meal. I used ham chunks halved the chicken breasts added a can of chicken broth and half a minced onion...simmered all day. Thickened with a cornstach slurry. Layered in the swis cheese. Coated the stuffing with butter and topped the casserole...let it cook for another hour. So so so so yummy! Read More

This Recipe was fantastic. I put the crockpot on high and it was done in just over 2 hours. It was a great first time crock pot experience. I was on weight watchers at the time; I replaced the milk with Skim milk LOW FAT cheese 1/2 fat soup margarine instead of butter and it was DELICIOUS. My fiancé LOVED it and he is not a half fat/diet type of guy. I only told him afterward Read More

the stuffing really added to this recipe. I used turkey flavour which was left over from Christmas. I put some on earlier than added the last 1/2 package later because other reviewers thought it got soggy. Mine was cripsy and very nice. Read More
