Do you love pasta? Do you love Chicken Cordon Bleu? Well then you’re sure to enjoy this Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta! It’s the easier, yummier version of the meal-time classic!
I love a good pasta that’s brimming with cheese and flavor! Today’s recipe came about because I was thinking about how I could incorporate the flavors of chicken cordon bleu in a meal that had more simple prep. This one comes together quickly, mostly in one pan. Keep your ingredients at-the-ready because the process flies by and be prepared to enjoy one of the most delicious dinners ever!
My family absolutely loved it! We eat mac ‘n cheese on a regular basis. My kids are obsessed. They said, “Mom, this is even better than mac ‘n cheese!” I’ll take that as a huge compliment. Anytime my creation can beat out a kid’s favorite pasta, I consider myself the dinner time hero!
You’ll start out by frying the ham, then setting that aside to a plate. Then you’ll cook your chicken chunks and transfer those to the plate with the ham. Then you’ll cook the pasta in some chicken broth (it happens so quickly). Then add in a rue of flour and milk for thickening and a few seasonings. To finish it off, toss in your cheeses and meats, give it a good stir, and you’re good to go!
This is comfort food at its best! I decided to keep it super simple as far as toppings go, but you can certainly add bread crumbs or crushed crackers, if you’d like! We drizzled it with our favorite hot sauce, because that’s how we roll. 🙂
This meal is ready in about 30 minutes! I love easy dinner options like this that also taste like a million bucks!
