Stork Meal 3: No Fuss Chicken Cordon Bleu

I'm happy to report this was a total win in the house today. Even the two year old shoveled the meal into her mouth with joy, asking for seconds.

I've posted this meal on FFMeals before, but since I am using it as a stork meal, I will post it again. People, you really should try this. SO easy. SO good. Needless to say, this meal is going in my new mama's freezer :)

The brilliance of this meal is that it's wonderful like a normal Cordon Bleu might be, but it's none of the hassle of stuffing a chicken breast. It's truly, no fuss!

Ingredients:6-8 fresh chicken breasts (or equal amount of boneless thighs) cut into tenders (they cook faster)
2 cups sliced carrots
2 cans Cream of Chicken
1 cup Sour Cream
2 tsp lemon juice
2 tsps Paprika
1 1/4 cup of grated Swiss cheese
1/2 cup of Ham slices cut into thin strips
1 Egg
1 cup of bread crumbs

Directions: Put sliced carrots in bottom of 9x13 pan (or two 8 inch). Combine Cream of Chicken soup, sour cream, paprika and lemon juice in bowl. Mix well and pour over the carrots. Slice Chicken breasts into tender strips. Crack an egg on a plate and beat well. Place bread crumbs on additional plate and coat  chicken with egg and then with bread crumbs. Arrange coated chicken breasts over the top of sauce in the pan. Place ham strips over the top of the chicken. Top with swiss cheese.

Freeze: Use Saran wrap or press and seal over the top of the pan and then Foil it all the way around to ensure air tight. Store in the freezer up to 2 months (or more depending on your druthers).

Baking: Defrost and use within 2 days. Preheat oven on 375 and bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes until cheese is bubblely and chicken juices run clear (Or meat thermometer says 165). Serve over egg noodles.
