I’m using my slow cooker in the middle of summer?!?! Yes! I am. Thank goodness!
I knew it was going to be one of those days where we were running around like crazy people…gym, swim lessons, gymnastics…all on one day (which doesn’t happen often in our house…but once in a while, it happens). I wanted something that would be waiting on me when we arrived home. I wanted chicken with a side salad…but not boring chicken. I wanted chicken I could get excited about. So…I opened my Six Sisters Stuff Cookbook (one of my faves!) and found their recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu. It was simple and delicious (and a nice change up from something off the grill). Thank you sisters! You made my family very happy (and this busy mama less stressed).
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup milk
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
4 ounces sliced ham (use a good quality ham!)
4 ounces sliced Swiss cheese
1 (8 oz) package dry stuffing mix (I used Stove Top)
1/4 cup butter, melted
In a small bowl, combine soup and milk. Pour enough of the soup into the slow cooker to cover the bottom. Layer chicken breasts over sauce. Cover each breast with a slice of ham and then a slice of Swiss cheese. Slowly pour the rest of the soup mixture down on top of your chicken. Sprinkle stuffing mix on top of everything and drizzle butter down over stuffing. Cover and cook on low 4 to 6 hours or on high 2 to 3 hours.
I served mine with a green salad and it was delicious!
If you haven’t checked out the Six Sisters Stuff Cookbook, you really should. It’s wonderful!
And you know what else is wonderful? Having a quick chicken dinner on a hot summer night.
