How to Make Chicken Cordon Bleu in the Crockpot

If you love chicken cordon bleu as much I do, you will love how easy this is to throw into the crockpot!

  1. Prep: Spray the bowl of a 4 or 6-quart slow cooker with pan spray.
  2. Whisk: Whisk together the milk, cream of chicken soup, Dijon, and lemon juice. Spread about 1 cup of the mixture in the bottom of the crockpot.
  3. Add Meat and Cheese: Add the chicken to the crockpot, then top with the ham and shredded cheese.
  4. Add Stuffing Mix: Top with the rest of the soup mixture. Cover with the stuffing mix and drizzle with butter.
  5. Cook: Cook on low for 5-6 hours or on high for 2-3 hours.

Tips for Slow Cooker Cordon Bleu

  • Can I use chicken thighs instead? Yes! Boneless, skinless chicken thighs will work as a flavorful alternative to chicken breasts! You can use all breasts, all thighs, or a mixture of the two as long as you’ve got 3 pounds of chicken.
  • Cut it into cubes: You can keep the chicken breasts whole, or you can cut it into 1-inch cubes for easier serving.
  • Fresh or bottled lemon juice? I like to try to use fresh lemon juice anytime that I can. Fresh lemons always have better flavor and will add the perfect amount of zing to the cordon bleu sauce.
  • Crockpot Size: If you use a larger crockpot, (7-8 quarts) your cooking time may be a bit shorter than the recipe calls for.
  • Can I make it gluten-free? Yes! You can easily make this a gluten-free recipe by swapping out the stuffing mix for your favorite gluten-free stuffing mix!

Storing Leftovers

  • In the Refrigerator: Store your slow cooker chicken cordon bleu leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Reheat in 30-second increments in the microwave.
  • Make it Ahead of Time: You may prepare the items in the crockpot the night before except for the stuffing and butter. Cover with plastic wrap or foil and place in the refrigerator. In the morning, add on the stuffing, drizzle it with butter and cook on low for 5-6 hours or on high for 2-3 hours.
