Two things I love for dinner are chicken and casseroles. That’s what made me think of this Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole.
Usually chicken cordon bleu is made with the chicken wrapped around ham and cheese, then it’s breaded and fried in oil. I’m going to guess that would be pretty high in points.
That’s why turning this into a casserole helps to cut down on points, since you don’t have to fry the chicken.
This is also a perfect recipe to use a store bought rotisserie chicken. If you’re short on time you can just buy the chicken already cooked.
Putting this casserole together is easy, but it does take 45 minutes to cook. One thing I like about a recipe with a long cook time is it allows me to clean up all of the prep dishes. That way once dinner is done cleanup is a breeze!
This chicken cordon bleu casserole makes six servings (approximately 1 cup per serving), 3 WW Freestyle points per serving.
It tastes great served over rice, or by itself with a side of veggies. Either way, it’s delicious!
