Rich Comfort Food


This is not a light dinner, but this is amazing comfort food. Trust me, this is so, so good.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Lasagna


9 lasagna noodles, cooked according to package directions
4 1/2 cups cooked and chopped chicken (grilled or rotisserie), chopped
1 1/2 cups cooked and diced ham
1 1/2-2 cups cooked and chopped bacon
3 cups Swiss cheese, grated


1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
4 cups milk
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
16 ounces cream cheese, softened


In a large saucepan, melt butter and add flour. Cook for 1 minute and then slowly add milk. Add garlic powder, garlic salt, salt, and pepper. Stir with a whisk, and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Stir in cream cheese and continue to stir until smooth. Remove from heat.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Place 3 lasagna noodles on the bottom of the pan.

Layer 1/3 of the chicken over the noodles. Next layer 1/3 of the ham. Pour 1/3 of the sauce over the ham. Sprinkle 1/2 of the cheese over the sauce. Sprinkle 1/3 of the bacon over the cheese.

Repeat layering two more times.

Bake at 350 degrees F. for 45-60 minutes.

Notes: Kudos to Chef in Training. This is such a good recipe. Pair it with some light sides, like a nice salad and you're set.

I would highly suggest saving a little crumbled bacon and adding some chopped parsley as a garnish to add a little color, as Chef in Training did. Be sure to check out her pictures on her site.


Above: Still just as delicious, but the toppings really add a lot to this lasagna aesthetically.

Above: See?!

  1. This was an incredibly easy recipe and one of Niel's new favorites...because it's so fattening, I think.
