Make this delicious Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole for a wonderful dinner meal!

6 Tbsp. salted butter

2 cups small-cubed ham

1 1/4 cups grated Swiss cheese

1 1/4 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese

4 cooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes

1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

2 cups milk

1 cup chicken broth

2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper

kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with 1 Tbsp. butter.

Put the ham on a paper towel-lined plate and microwave for about 3 minutes to reduce the moisture content.

Mix together the Swiss and Monterey Jack cheese in a bowl.

Put about a third of chicken in a layer in the bottom of prepared baking dish. Top with half the ham. Sprinkle over 1/4 cup of the mixed cheese. Repeat one more time, then finish with a layer of chicken.

Melt the remaining 5 Tbsp. butter in a skillet over medium heat.

Put the panko in a bowl, pour in half of the melted butter, mix well and set aside.

Add the flour to the remaining butter in the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes, whisking out any lumps. Whisk in milk, broth, Dijon and cayenne and let it cook until it begins to thicken. Remove from the heat and stir in 1 cup of the cheese until melted. Season with salt and pepper.

Pour the sauce over the casserole. Sprinkle over the remaining 1 cup cheese, then the panko mix.

Bake until the top is browned and the casserole is bubbling, 25-30 minutes.
