Slow Cooker Chicken Cordon Bleu

Be sure and join me on Facebook for the latest updates on new recipes!

I LOVE Chicken Cordon Bleu, but hate all the work of it.  My husband requested it the other day, so seeing as the crock pot is my favorite appliance, I googled Crock Pot Chicken Cordon Bleu, and this sounded like the best recipe that I saw.  I whipped it up in literally minutes and it was ready for dinner time.  My whole family loved it, including my picky toddler!

recipe from:

6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
1 cup milk
4 ounces sliced ham
4 ounces sliced Swiss cheese
1 (8 ounce) package herbed dry bread stuffing mix
1/4 cup butter, melted
Mix together the cream of chicken soup and milk in a small bowl. Pour enough of the soup into a slow cooker to cover the bottom.
Layer chicken breasts over the sauce.
Cover with slices of ham and then Swiss cheese.
Pour the remaining soup over the layers, stirring a little to distribute between layers.
Sprinkle the stuffing on top, and drizzle butter over stuffing.
Cover, and cook on Low for 4 to 6 hours, or 2 to 3 hours on High.

  13. Megan

  17. Michelle

    This was delicious! Even my picky kids ate it! I think next time I'll add more ham, since the kids were requesting more. I only used about half a box of stuffing and it was perfect. Thanks for the great recipe. Can't wait to try the Santa Fe Chicken from your site next!

    This was delicious, but extremely watery. Is it supposed to be like this or more congealed? Any suggestions are appreciated?

    this was great! very easy and smelled great cooking, but i must say i did not care for the topping! i would have liked it better if it was panko bread crumbs or other bread crumbs! something to make it crunchy on top! i would also add garlic to the cream of chicken soup! but overall this was a really good recipe and would def make it again!

  22. Donna

    This was so easy and really good, however, there are a few changes I will make next time. I will cube my chicken and ham (for easier serving), use 1/2 cup milk (was a little watery) instead of a whole cup and maybe half the stuffing mix.

  23. Kam and Jodie

    Looks delish! I am assuming you do not Prepare the stuffing before adding it? Can anyone confirm this?

  24. Anonymous

    This looks delicious I must say will have to try this.. Thank You!

    Made this for dinner tonight with a few minor changes (based on what I had available) and it was DELICIOUS! It will definitely be going on my monthly meal planner. THANK YOU FOR SHARING!!

  26. RKeener

    Did you use unsealed butter or low sodium soup mix?

  27. Aubrey

    I've never seen my daughter eat so fast! this was a BIG hit in our house! I used Turkey flavor stove top since it was on sale, 98% fat free cream of chicken and skim milk... it was PERFECT! Thank you!

  28. Kristy

    I made this for dinner and it was wonderful! I made a few changes, too, based on the food I had on hand. Thanks so much for sharing it!

    I have it in my slow cooker. I was the fastest dinner i ever prepared! Can't wait to try this in a couple hours.

    Okay so I have had it in the crock pot for about 2 hours and the stuffing doesn't look like it is cooking much! Any suggestions?

  31. Anonymous

    i'm having the same issue -- stuffing doesn't look like its doing anything. i just put it in about half an hour ago but i'm worried i messed something up. i wasn't supposed to mix the stuffing with the soup, right? just dump on top... hopeful it turns out, it looks delish! will report back :)

  32. Lisa

    Love this recipe!! Have made it for family and friends. It's never failed me!

  33. Jess do you prepare the stuffing before sprinkling it on?

    1. Jess

      Never mind! Just saw that this was already answered. Thanks!

  34. Jodi D.

    Just you prepare the stuffing before sprinkling on top? This looks great! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Jodi D. would help if I would have read the comments above!

  35. Michelle

    This recipe is a keeper. I made it for my husband and myself. We both thought it was tasty. The best part was it was SO fast and easy to make! I would probably make it for a family meal, not for entertaining. Could use a little color. It's all the same color except a little ham peeking out. Needs some red or green to look more appetizing. I will definitely make again for us.

  36. lisa

    I have to say that I have tried a few of your recipes now and they are ALL fantastic!!!!!! my husband is very picky and has enjoyed everyone of them!! i always find myself going straight to your website when I'm looking for something new!! :)

  37. Mehgan

    Used panko bread crumbs instead of stuffing. Not good! This recipe was a miss in our house. The Swiss was really gross cooked and it was so watery. Wonder if we went wrong at te bread crumbs. Super bummed about this.

  38. Kit Fitz

    My fav (husbands too)! So yummy! I made this for the second time, the only tweak I made was add romano cheese and peas to the crock pot. Even better the next day for lunch! Love your website! :)

  39. Kim

    Chicken cordon bleu is one of my favorite foods, but I rarely have time to go through the pounding, wrapping, breading and baking process in the evenings. A crock pot recipe is perfect! Thanks for posting it!

  40. Tammy

    Made it today - it was DELICIOUS! Used Stove Top Chicken Stuffing Mix and as it cooked I would occasionally scoop some of the chicken soup/milk mix up and pour it over the stuffing. I could see that the stuffing was staying a little dryer than I wanted it and figured it was because the liquid was staying below because of the layers. mine was not watery. I will leave my chicken breasts the same size but will cut up the ham next time. Also plan to add either some onions or onion straws on top.

  41. Courtney

    The first time I tried to make this, I over cooked it (my slowcooker is EXTRA I'm still learning to adjust cook times/temp accordingly). BUT, I made it on the stove in a big pot tonight, just slowly simmering until it was done (about an hour) and it was SO good. I substituted the swiss for havarti and it's fantastic!! Panko stuffing is perfect with it. But, I also had the problem of the stuffing not getting moist enough to cook sort of just formed this layer on top. So next time I think I'm going to mix it a bit with the soup...we'll see how it goes, but I absolutely LOVE this meal!

  42. Amy & Bryan

    We tried this out tonight and it was a hit. The only thing I will do differently next time is use low sodium soup. It was REALLY salty!

  43. Becky

    I am new to this slow-cooker way of cooking. Before I mess up, do I actually condense the soup with water (how the can says to prepare it) or just plop it in there? I use some recipes that say to not mix the soup with water, and some that don't say.. either way I don't know what to do!!! I would love to make this.. but what to do with the soup?

  44. Anna W.

    This is in the crock pot now, can't wait to try it!

  45. Kristina

    Just wanted to let you know that I made this tonight & everyone LOVED it! This was a delicious and easy meal; I did cut back on the milk and breadcrumbs... and I probably could have used half a can of soup given that I only used 2 chicken breasts... Anyways, thanks for sharing! It was worth making!

  46. Vicki

    cant recommend this site enough, just love love love it> Have done this chicken numurous times now and have even introduced it to other family members. Slowly working our way through the rest. Keep them coming Nikki.

  47. Sara

    Like soup, and I used less milk and cooked it longer, hoping it would thicken. Waste of chicken.

  48. Melissa

    I plan on using a box of stove top, should I cook the stuffing first or just sprinkle it dry on top?

    1. Jodie

      I have this in the crock pot now and I used Stove Top.....Hope it turns out! Looks Yummy :)

    2. Chef in Training

      just sprinkle it on dry. No preparation. Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any more questions :)

  49. Laura

    In the crockpot now..........can't wait to try this !!

  50. Shannon

    This was my first dish that I've ever made in my crockpot! ...I definitely used low sodium cream of chicken soup to cut down on that a bit; I think next time I'd use low sodium ham too. The stuffing was more mushy, so it wasn't the crispiness you'd get from bit being breaded (I'd probably put it in a little later into the cooking process, or, I'd prepare it ahead of time & just put it on at the very end). Any suggestions how to combat that? Overall though, not too shabby for my first crockpot meal!

  51. Jill @ Mormon Surrogate

    Thank you. I was looking for an easy Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe, only I am going to try it with chicken nuggets

  52. Jackie

    How much does this make?

  53. Tommy

    can you make these recipes more print friendly? I just want one page of info, not 20

  54. Charissa

    Can I use Panko bread crumbs instead of the stuffing?

  55. Jamie

    This is in my slow cooker as we speak, I can't wait to try it!!!!

  56. lynn


    This needs Dijon mustard - I added some to the soup/milk mixture and then a squirt on top of each piece of chicken - Delicious!!
