CREAMY CHICKEN CORDON BLEU CASSEROLE – a deliciously simple twist on a classic. A creamy, cheesy chicken and ham casserole the entire family will love that’s made with only a few ingredients and takes 30 minutes to bake. Dinner is about to be served.
I struggle sometimes coming up with simple, easy ideas for dinner. Gasp!!! I know, I know, I am a food blogger and that seems like an oxymoron. I am also a busy mom of 5 kids, and well, that means there are lots of days where I lose all sanity. So recently I reached out to my friends on Instagram and Facebook and asked for their favorite family meals that were easy to make in a pinch. My sweet friend Angela replied with this amazing meal. She told me she makes chicken cordon bleu this way because she is too lazy to pound out the chicken, and stuff & roll it. I laughed because we all can relate. I loved how she said she put it all together, and she was so right when she talked about how good it is. Our family is in love with this meal, and you will be too!
This CREAMY CHICKEN CORDON BLEU CASSEROLE saved me on one of those crazy nights. I try to be on top of menu planning and grocery shopping as much as possible for 2 reasons: My sanity, and it saves money.
I don’t want to be stressed every day or hours before dinner trying to figure out what to do. So my sister and I meet every Saturday morning for drinks and pumpkin bread, and plan out our menus. We browse Pinterest, make our menus and grocery lists, and all over the sisterly conversation.
I grew up only a 1/2 mile from my local Kroger store, King Soopers, and I remember the first time my mom let my sister and I ride our bikes to the store to get her something; we thought we were big time. And now I am less than a mile from another King Soopers, and my kids do the same thing that my sister and I did – such fond memories in the making. I love shopping there. Not only is the location ideal, but I have come to know everyone who works there. I mean, I kinda stand out with 5 kids, and being a food blogger, I’m always there. I have even been known to take my experiments there for them to try. Sweet Grandma Carol, a checker who recently retired from King Soopers, became an adopted family member. Not only do I love all of the Kroger branded foods because of the quality and price, but I am obsessed over their Kroger REWARDS VisaKroger REWARDS Visa. With the amount of money we spend each month with a family our size, it’s so nice to be rewarded for it. Right? Not only are you rewarded for your groceries with rewards checks, sent automatically from Kroger 4 times a year. WOW, right? Here is how the points are accumulated: 1 point for every qualifying net $1 you spend everywhere Visa® is accepted, 2 points for every qualifying net $1 you spend at King Soopers and 3 points for every qualifying net $1 you spend on Kroger Family of Brands products (i.e. Kroger brand, Simple Truth, Private Selection, PSST). And that is only the beginning you can you’ll save an additional 25¢ per gallon of fuel for one year, each time you redeem 100 Fuel Points.
For me, what it all comes down to in the end when creating meals or a meal for my family is the ease of each meal, how accessible the ingredients are, the quality of products I use and money that I can save. And all of that is made easier by my local King Soopers. Interested in learning more how our family saves using the Kroger REWARDS Visa?

Enjoy this CREAMY CHICKEN CORDON BLEU CASSEROLE – your whole family will love just how creamy & delicious it is. XOXO San
My favorite kitchen items I used to make this CREAMY CHICKEN CORDON BLEU CASSEROLE.
9×13 BAKING PAN: I use my 9×13 baking pans all the time. Dinner, cakes and even for play dough fun, these are a kitchen must have in our home. I prefer the dark pans over glass pan – all because I feel like they cook more evenly, but this is just my own personal thoughts.
