Chicken Cordon Bleu Lasagna

I’ve decided that lasagna does not photograph well. I can never get perfect pieces out like all the pictures show either. Oh well! It tastes good at least! This is a great recipe to use up leftover ham and chicken. I LOVE Chicken Cordon Bleu. It has been a favorite of mine for years. I am way too lazy to make the real kind with it all rolled up inside a chicken breast. Seriously, who has time for that?!?! I’ll make it inside out, where I put the ham and cheese up on top of some chicken, and to me, that tastes just as yummy without all the fuss!

This lasagna was yummy. I accidently bought a bunch of lasagna noodles off of Amazon (not sure what I was thinking?!?!), so I’ve been coming up with different lasagna’s to make. This one was a winner. Noodles, ham, chicken, and cheese – really a no brainer! Of course, it was delicious!

 

Ingredients:

  • 9-12 lasagna noodles (depending on size and shape of your pan) cooked to box directions
  • 1-2lbs of cooked or uncooked chopped or shredded chicken
  • 1-2 cups of diced, cooked ham
  • 8-10 slices cooked and chopped bacon (optional)
  • 3 cups grated swiss cheese

Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • fresh cracked pepper
  • 8oz cream cheese

 

Directions:

Heat oven to 350. Grease a 13×9 pan with cooking spray

In a saucepan, melt the butter and add the flour to create a roux. Slowly add the milk, being sure to fully incorporate before adding more milk. Add the garlic, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the cream cheese and stir until smooth. Remove from heat. Place 3-4 lasagna noodles in the bottom of your pan. Layer 1/3 of your chicken, ham, and optional bacon. Pour 1/3 of your sauce. Then sprinkle with 1/3 of your cheese. Repeat 2 more times. Bake for 45-60 minutes.
