I realize I’ve been a little heavy-handed recently with the cast iron skillet use. One the one hand, I’m sorry I’m not more creative. On the other hand, it’s so convenient and also looks nice in pictures, so let’s just not worry about fixing what’s not broken, ok?
Ok! I’m glad we had that talk and also thank you for being here. This casserole! Is kind of like a deconstructed cordon bleu (do we capitalize this? hmm), super simple to throw together, and big on flavor. The big deal with regular chicken cordon bleu is that you roll chicken and ham and cheese together into this nice little packet, then bread and fry it. Time consuming + unhealthy SO we eliminated the assembly and the frying. There’s still a breadcrumb topping because I’m not an animal.
The skillet is layered super quickly, baked until bubbly, and served with rice and pasta and bread, all 3. Or salad depending on your mood.
