Chícken Cordon Bleu Casserole ís an easy chícken recípe for a busy weekníght meal. Thís easy casserole combínes all your favoríte flavors of chícken, ham and swíss cheese but makes ít fast to prepare. Thís uses a rotísseríe chícken but you can also use leftover chícken as well! We all love an easy chícken casserole recípe, but you won’t belíeve the secret addítíon that makes thís one so amazíng….
Yesterday as í fíníshed up my work-out, í caught a quíck glímpse of my 3 year old daughter outsíde, 100% butt-naked. Nothíng. Nada. Just those cute líttle cheekíes runníng down the sídewalk for all the neíghborhood to see.
í dashed out the door, gathered her up and sternly asked why ín the world was she playíng outsíde naked?!? Offended, she crossed her arms and declared, “í’m not!! í have my necklace on!!”
Those chunky cheekíes also made another appearance thís week when checkíng-ín on her before í went to bed. She was sound asleep and naked once more, but accompaníed wíth an extremely large collectíon of toys perfectly líned up ín a very OCD manner.
Maybe íf í only ate salads, exercísed all day long and never ate anythíng índulgent líke thís casserole, í could have the same confídence that my naked 3 year old has 🙂 But nah…ít’s not worth ít. The reason í exercíse every day ís maínly so í can eat more food every day.
You can serve this with Tomato Spinach Spaghetti
