Slow Cooker Chicken Cordon Bleu

Can you tell that I am in love with my slow cooker?  Especially in the summer when we are busy and I don’t want to use the oven!   Then when we get home, we have a delicious meal.  Like this one.  And if you love chicken cordon bleu as much I do, you will love how easy this is to throw into the crockpot!  And it is so delicious.  The stuffing on top gives it such an amazing flavor and we all loved it!

Rating: 4 stars  Difficulty of Recipe: 2 stars
Things that I changed:  You can either buy ham chunks and layer it over the chicken, or put ham slices.  I decided to cut my chicken in half and stuff it with a slice of ham and cheese.  Then I also layered the chicken with cheese.
Things that I will change next time:  Nothing
Will I make it again?  Yes!

4-6 Chicken Breasts
Sliced Ham
Swiss Cheese
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup Milk
Chicken Stuffing Mix
1/4 Cup Butter

Mix the soup with the milk.  Put about half of the soup on the bottom.  Place Chicken breasts on top.  Layer with the sliced ham and swiss cheese.  (This is where I sliced the chicken in half and put the ham and cheese inside and put swiss cheese on the top).  Put the rest of the milk/soup mixture on the top of the swiss cheese.  Then lastly, put the stuffing mix on the very top and drizzle it with the 1/4 cup butter.  Cook on low for about 4-6 hours.

  3. This looks delicious… I love slow cooker recipes.. Pinning it so that I have the recipe… Newest follower on GFC and facebook.
    PS I am a host of a Linky party that will be starting this evening (opens at 9 pm EST) it goes through Sunday morning and would love if you would share a recipe

  4. Sarah Carletti says:

    Yep, now that I have a slow cooker this looks like a winner! Sarah

  5. cathy f. says:

    Do you have to precook the stuffing mix or do you put it in the crockpot right out of the box ?

  6. cathy f. says:

    I forgot to also ask if you used the stuffing mix with the rice in it (stuff n’such) or the regular one (stove top). thanks 🙂

  7. Tom Meier says:

    Why is there no print button for the reipe? Hateto pront the entire thing when I only need one page.

  8. Could you bake this? Would love to do it this weekend but we’ll be traveling so can’t use the crockpot until we get there, which will be at dinnertime. Need to cook this quickly!

    • I am sure that you can bake it! Just layer it the same in a 9×13 pan and bake it at 350 for about 30- 40 minutes until the chicken is no longer pink. 🙂

  9. Hi!
    Cooking this right now! Worried about the quantity of stuffing mix though. I had a 12oz. bag that I used and it seemed like a lot! What size do you use?

  10. Grace Gibson says:

    Sure looks good. Would like to try it if I could get receipe.

  11. Can the chicken be frozen

    • I have cooked quite a bit with frozen chicken in the crockpot. Just make sure that it is cooked through and has reached an internal temp of 160. 🙂

  12. If you wanted to add some veggies, could you just add some baby carrots, cut up potatoes and maybe some broccoli on the bottom of the crockpot?

  13. Alyssa, What do you usually pair this with for dinner?

  14. Can I use Panko bread crumbs instead of the stuffing mix?

  15. Michelle Frazer says:

    What kind of Swiss? Block, sliced, shredded????

  16. Is there a way I could make this dish in the oven with frozen fully cooked chicken? I have a paranoia of raw chicken but really want to try this dish. Thanks!

  17. Was pretty good but could use more flavor and the chicken was kind of tough (I started with it frozen.)

  18. I just wanted to say thank you. I shared this today on my Facebook page and it was a huge success 🙂


  1. […] I used to love the prepackaged Chicken Cordon Swiss – the cheese with the ham, and my ultimate favourite – the ones with broccoli inside! So far, no one has made a version that is gluten & dairy free, so I was ecstatic when a friend shared a slow cooker recipe that looked like it would convert very easily. (original recipe here: ) […]
