Mock Chicken Cordon Bleu

This is another quick and easy recipe that I will modify a bit when preparing the next time. It is very good and smells divine while cooking away in the crock pot!!!
As you can see, there is a topping of seasoned stuffing and that is what I would change the next time...
The chicken cordon bleu was accompanied by a mango/grape side and also a tossed salad with dried cranberries and toasted almonds!

Chicken Cordon Bleu:

6 boneless and skinless chicken breast halves
1 small can Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
1 cup milk
4 oz. sliced ham
4 oz. sliced Swiss Cheese
1 box Seasoned Stuffing mix (dry)
1/4 cup butter, melted

Mix together the cream of chicken soup and milk (whole) in a small bowl. Place a small amount of the mixture into crock pot, covering the just bottom.
Place the chicken breasts over the sauce and then layer the ham slices and finally the Swiss cheese slices.
Pour remaining soup over all and stir just a bit to make sure all is covered with the soup mixture.
Sprinkle the dry stuffing on top and drizzle the melted butter over the top.
Cover and cook on Low for about 5 hours.

Personally, the next time I make this I will have a new Crock Pot...mine is tall and deep but I believe this recipe would cook more evenly in an oval Crock Pot that would allow you to distribute the chicken in one layer rather that stacking like I had to do.

Another note:
I would wait until the final hour of cooking to place the stuffing mix on top and remove the lid so the stuffing didn't get soggy.

I hope you enjoy this modified version of the recipe!
