Chicken Cordon Bleu is one of my FAVORITE meals! I love the meat and cream cheese combination. You may have noticed by now that on this blog I love to put unique spins on this classic recipe. My Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta, for example, is one of my more popular recipes and for good reason.

 This Chicken Cordon Bleu Lasagna will quickly rise to the top your family’s favorite dinner list! It is hearty and is jam packed with wonderful flavor. How can one go wrong with bacon though?! With layers of pasta, cream cheese sauce, ham, chicken and bacon- this dinner will be unforgettable! I know you will love this as much as we do :)

    Do you think the recipe would work with no bake noodles?

    1. Melisas


      I used the no bake noodles and it turned out fine!!

    2. Georgeiana

      It absolutely does!

    3. M

      I think it would work w/no bake noodles. Used them in lasagna bolognase, Only tip would be pre soften them by pouring hot water over the noodles (in a pan) and let them steep for 6-8 Mins, use a little oil so they don't stick.. It works super.. This recipe sounds amaze balls.. will be trying it :) Thanks.

    4. Rhonda


      I made this yesterday and used the no-cook noodles..This was so good. I added onions to half it for my parents.

  2. Vicky

    I've seen so many variations for the classic chicken cordon bleu recently, and this looks like a winner too. About how much ham did you buy? And did you buy it in a thick chunk? Thanks.


  3. Barb

    Hey Nikki!
    I just finished assembling the lasagna... and realized I still have the grated Swiss!!
    I double checked the recipe, but don't see where it's called for. In the sauce?? Layered on?? Just on top?? Please help! (At this point, I'm just going to melt some on top and hope it works). Thanks.

    1. Chef in Training

      I am so sorry you ran into trouble. You layer 1/3 of the cheese, so 1 cup, per layer. I hope that makes sense! Again so sorry for the confusion!

  4. Shmabrina Shmen

    Why is there so much chicken in "chicken cordon bleu lasagna?" This is highly upsetting for fellow vegans such as myself. Chickens are friends not food.

    1. Donna


      Really Shmabrina? The noodles have eggs from a chicken, the chicken is a given, the bacon and ham comes from the pig, and the cheese, butter and milk comes from a cow?! You're on the wrong site

    2. Dana

      Go Donna!

    3. Patricia

      Why is there chicken in chicken cordon blue? Why is there chocolate in chocolate ice cream? Why is there bacon in a BLT? Really, you should think about what you asked. It's kind of funny. ?

  5. Jodi

    Could you make this into a freezer meal???

    1. Joann

      I was wondering that myself..Would be great for a freeze ahead meal..???

  6. Dan Leeder


    I'm glad the recipe calls for "chicken chicken" and not some imposter like "Spam chicken"! ?

    1. Chef in Training

      haha! Thanks for catching that typo :D All fixed now!

  7. Mary

    Just made this..... Soon good.

  8. Michelle

    This looks amazing! And a lot less work than stuffing and rolling chicken breasts. I have a problem, though. I hate Swiss cheese. Any ideas for a good alternative? Thanks!

    1. Jen

      I would think provolone would be good too. But Swiss cheese mixed in a recipe with a rich sauce like this tastes completely different than Swiss itself. I would test them and see if they even realize it's Swiss.

  9. Paula

    My kids hate swiss cheese can I substitute another kind

  10. Kim McAdoo

    Holy Moley, this looks so good. I have had one before but this with the sauce thickend looks so yummy. I will be giving this a try indeed. Just did not think of chicken and ham & bacon. I will add a couple more ingredients I know my family likes. Awesome, no cans of soup, done the right way.

  11. Ginny

    Do you think this could be made in a Crock Pot????

  12. Sarah ruth

    I only new the lasagna mixed with the red sauce,but even white sauce still works wow looks yummy,instead of bacon can i use chicken breast coz my kids don't lyk beacons?

  13. Terri


    #chefintraining there's no way to upload the picture

      you hashtag it on Instagram with that and then I can find it :) I hope that helps! I would love to see your finished product!

  14. Chicken Bacon Ranch Lasagna - Chef in Training

    […] am obsessed with lasagnas lately and you guys seem to LOVE when I make a new one. My Chicken Cordon Bleu Lasagna has gone crazy popular since I posted it. For good reason too, it is beyond […]

  15. Rhonda

    Hi. I'm in Australia and I don't know what lasagna noodles are. Is it lasagne sheets? Please tell me what they look like.

  16. Paul

    I enjoy many of your recipes, but I wish you had a "print" button included.

    1. Chef in Training

      There is a print button in the upper right hand corner of the recipe card. Please let me know if you still are having trouble. Thank you!

    2. Doreen K

      Paul, I find that when I view recipes on a laptop or desktop, I don't see a print button. But when I look from my iPad or iPhone, it's there. Crazy!

  17. Janet B.


    I made this and froze the rest and my husband can't get enough. It is fabulous and I will make it again. I highly recommend it.

  18. Jen


    Made this tonight for dinner. It was sooooo good! My 6 year old loved it. Thank you for the recipe I'm sure it will now be a regular request in my home.

  19. Audrey

    Just pulled it out of the oven! Second time having this. I added panko to the top! My family loves it.

    1. Lu

      Love the panko idea!

  20. Velma

    Just wanna say this is amazing! Made it for 1st time today & it's delicious! Will definitely make this regularly. Thanks for sharing xx

  21. Pam

    I made this last night and it was beautiful will deffo be making it again , it was a big hit ?

  22. Teresa

    I get confused when receipes call for flour and it doesn't specify all purpose or plain. Which one do you use in this?

    1. Chef in Training

      I always use all purpose unless specified otherwise. Sorry for any confusion :) Please let me know if you have any more questions

  23. Crystal Harshbarger


    I made this last weekend for my husband. NOT a hit. This was so salty it could have given a moose a heart attack.
    Butter has salt. Cheese has salt. Bacon and ham have salt. Not to mention the regular salt and garlic salt that this called for. It was awful. That's not even to mention how rich it was with TWO tubs of cream cheese. I managed to "save it" the following night by adding ANOTHER 4 cups of chicken along with some tomato sauce, but then it was entirely too much food even for our family of 6.
    I've made a lot of recipes from this page and they turned out amazing, but I have to say that I was really disappointed with this one, especially considering that it cost almost $20 for all of the ingredients it eventually cost me.

  24. Melissa


    I have never left a comment about a recipe that I have tried off of a site........But let me say this was absolutely delicious!! Everyone in my family loved it and I only had a tiny bit left over from a big casserole dish. Thank you for a great recipe! :)

  25. Ashley

    How many does this feed?

  26. Steph

    Do you cover it with foil when you bake it???

  27. Anji


    My birthday is September 19th. And I think I just found my birthday dinner meal!! My sister & I are drooling over the recipe. Can't wait to try it!

    1. Tracy

      Happy Belated Birthday fellow 9/19th! Chicken Cordon Bleu is my signature dish. If I'm asked to cook dinner, 9 times out of 10, that's what they want. Next time, I'm going to pull a switch on them and make it in lasagna form!

  28. Kathryn

    Awesome recipe but I need to reduce calories and fat content, suggestions please short of non-fat cheese. Thanks, love your recipes.

    1. Julie

      I always use Greek yogurt cream cheese to lighten things up, & I can't tell a difference. I used a little less butter in this recipe, too, & went lighter on the cheese when I was sprinkling it on, & we LOVED this dish!

  29. Sheena


    Thank you for sharing this recipe, it looks so delicious and I really look forward to trying this, I live in the UK and don't know what 'Noodles' are though ~ is it the same as the sheets that you would use for a traditional beef lasagne?

  30. Dana

    In my oven right now! I halfed the recipe. Do I dare ask, how many calories?!

  31. Stacy


    I made this last night and it was a huge hit! -- I did change a few things. I used fresh minced garlic and omitted the garlic salt. I'm also not a huge fan of Swiss cheese so I used half Swiss and half mozzarella. Lastly, I topped the dish with crushed fried onions and buttered bread crumbs. It was perfect. Thanks so much!

  32. Sheri

    Could you just cut out the cream cheese all together and just add the Swiss to the milk to make a cheese sauce (and possibly some parmigiana reggianno too).. it looks great, I just find that's a lot of cream cheese.

  33. Marie O


    I've made this with gluten free lasagna noodles and flour as my husband has a gluten allergy - my family loved it!! So delicious!

  34. Spinach Artichoke Lasagna - Chef in Training

    […] have a couple different lasagna recipes I recommend to: My Chicken Cordon Bleu Lasagna and my Chicken Bacon Ranch Lasagna. All three of these lasagna recipes will have everyone jazzed […]

  35. Lynn

    I am thinking about making this for a church youth group. About how many does it feed? Also I think I will use mozzarella cheese instead of Swiss.

  36. Pamela

    I would love if you can do videos, is it possible?

  37. Stacey


    This was dinner last night & was a BIG hit!

  38. Julie

    I made this for the first time last night, & it's going into our normal rotation. SO GOOD! My husband was like, "OMG each bite just keeps getting better!" We both went back for seconds. My daughter, who is the pickiest eater alive, even liked it. :)

  39. Corrie

    This dish gave me great joy preparing it. It's currently in the oven and look forward to trying it.

  40. Wendy

    This was wonderful, I will be making a lot more. Thank you for a great recipe. I did not have enough Swiss so I mixed it with mozzarella.

  41. Nick

    How many servings does it make

  42. Tamara

    Has anyone used gluten free noodles? I'm making it for company that is gluten free wondered if it would substitute well?

  43. Michelle @ Modern Acupuncture

    Words cannot describe how excited I am to try this. Your pictures are gorgeous and this looks so cheesy and delicious that I'm suddenly starving for dinner and it's only 9am!

  44. Tracy Rogers


    Made this a few times I realize I need a bigger kitchen and my 7 year old son is a big help to pull the bacon to pieces I love this recipe the only problem is I eat the fixins while I'm cooking thanks for the recipe a great recipe for any occasion

  45. Rosemary

    Would be nice to know how many servings are in this meal

    1. Carrie


      I'm wondering the same. Servings per recipe, please??

  46. Megnut


    Just got done making. Looks very yummy! Can't wait to try!

  47. Liz

    Has anyone tried it with zucchini as the @noodles”.. trying to cuts down on carbs

    1. Tracy

      I make lasagna with zucchini & summer squash "noodles" made on a mandolin all the time. I think this would be amazing with summer squash noodles!

  48. Barbara Lowrance

    Can you assemble this dish the day before you cook it?

  49. Connie Bastien

    Do you think I could shrimp in the recipe instead of chicken.

  50. JHarris

    Going to try for a luncheon.

  51. jill schilling

    Is this meal one that freezes well? Trying to make stuff ahead that freeze very well. Thanks.

  52. Darlene


    Hi Nikki, I made your
    Cordon Bleu Lasagna for dinner tonight. Oh my goodness, it is SOOOOO delicious. My husband flipped over it. I have sent your link to my friends with pics. Looking forward to trying more of your recipes. Thanks for sharing Nikki.

    Making this for Dinner tonight!!!! So far I love everything about this meal. The cheese sauce is amazing. Surprising the hubby since his favorite meal is cordon blue and mines pasta so best of both worlds. Thank you for posting recipe.

  54. Carrie

    Hello! I made a half portion of your recipe and loved it. Really delicious! I don't see where you state how many your recipe would normally feed. Can you provide this? I'm making it for school staff lunch and need to feed 70 persons so I need to do the math. Thank you1

  55. Malia

    So good!! Family loved this recipe. Thank you!! We used gluten free noodles and cooked about 10-15 min longer.

  56. Ford

    No place to post a picture of my copy of this dish which is a shame because it looked great! I made this gluten-free for a friend on mine. GF noodles are never as tender, of course, and the GF flour was no problem. There is a hell of a lot of meat in this dish! The flavors are balanced well though I’d did add a little less bacon and ham (1/4 each less). Thanks for sharing this innovative recipe.

  57. Karla


    This is a family favorite, just printed out 4 copies of the recipe after heating up my lunch today at work. I rarely fallow recipes as they are written but this one did not need to be tweaked :)

  58. Juanita Janssen-Timmen


    I made this and it is now a family favorite! The kids could not stop talking about how yummy it was! I had several parents request the it is getting passed along :) Thank you for sharing!
