How To Make Chicken Ham Swiss Cheese Casserole?
Get ready to tantalize your taste buds with an incredible savory dish – preheat the oven and spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Then layer in shredded chicken, ham and Swiss cheese before heating up butter in a large pot over medium-high heat on the stovetop while stirring slowly so you don’t burn it.
Now mix in flavorful spices like garlic, salt & pepper, Dijon mustard and even smoked paprika for extra flavor! Keep whisking as you add flour followed by milk until deliciously thickened creamy sauce is achieved then pour on top all that delicious base goodness already prepared earlier.
Finally top off this masterpiece with some crunchy topping made from mixing together crumbs of your choice to create irresistibly baked delight perfect for any night of the week! This is my take of the traditional chicken cordon bleu recipe
