"I love this recipe! My picky meat and potato husband even liked it. As the other reviews state make sure to use low sodium everything. I used diced ham and boiled it to reduce the amount of salt. I recommend using more water and no butter/oil per stuffing instructions. Also, increase the milk and use cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soup to ensure the casserole wasn't dry. I love cheese so I added a bit more.

I gave the second pan to my neighbors who shared it with friends and EVERYONE loved it. Super easy!"

"If made as written, it's a bit salty for our tastes. I make sure I use the low-sodium stuffing, unsalted butter to make the stuffing, and Campbell's healthy request cream of chicken soup which has about half the sodium of the regular cream of chicken soup. If I can find lower-sodium ham, I use that too. All in all, it's a great recipe, and with less salt, absolutely delicious and a family favorite!"

"Easy week night recipe. It's a little salty, next time I will look for low-sodium stuffing. My family likes it. I couldn't find shredded Swiss, or block Swiss so I could shred it myself, so I used sliced Swiss. It worked fine. I also made it into one casserole, instead of two."

"Loved the concept of an easy peasy chicken Cordon Bleu, although my final result, even with the reduced sodium stuffing, was way too salty for our taste. I'll definitely try this recipe again with a few "less salt" tweaks and an addition of more "gravy" because the stuffing absorbed most of it by the time we reheated left-overs the next day."

"chicken Cordon Bleu Bake Recipe

Where I got the idea?
This "chicken Cordon Bleu Bake" was supper yummy. I am so Happy that this makes 2 casseroles. One to eat and one to freeze. I love the idea of having a casserole that I can just take out of the freezer the night before and supper will be done the next day with little effort. Rodney and I both where a fan of this casserole delight."
