Perfect for an easy weeknight dinner or entertaining guests, this Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole Recipe is absolutely fantastic. It has all the flavors of a classic Chicken Cordon Bleu Recipe, but they are baked into a creamy and decadent casserole that boasts just 6 Points + per serving.

My favorite way to roast the chicken breasts is with my slow cooker, but any method you like will be fine.

The Jarlberg Lite Swiss Cheese and the Celebrity Healthy Ham (got both of these from Trader Joe’s) are two of my favorite ingredients…both very delicious, but still very low in Points. If you are craving a classic, Southern comfort food recipe, this Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole will undoubtedly hit the spot. This one is must try, folks.
