I like easy.
Easy puzzles, easy math problems, easy recipes. I’m an easy girl. Now get your mind out of the gutter. Not easy like that (unless I’ve had 2 glasses of my favorite white wine – then it’s a different story).
I just like easy stuff.
Last week was supposed to be an easy week for me “work” wise. I wanted to get so much done. There were finances to log in, taxes to prepare and Sugar Buzz Pantry stuff to prep.
Welllll – about half of it got done. And the other half that didn’t will have to get done in the next couple of weeks seeing how Uncle Sam could care less if I have an easy week or not. Don’t you just hate when not-so-fun things pop up but you HAVE to deal with them. It doesn’t have to be just work related, it can be house related, kid related, car related, etc. Yuck – just hate that!
Nothing can spoil my mood like a day where things just don’t go right and that happened last week when my other website wasn’t working properly. HEADACHE for me because I am very IT illiterate. I know enough to make me dangerous. Not good.
But, I think we all need days like that every now and then to remind us to appreciate the good, easy days when they do pop up. I know I do. Even though I’m still dealing with some of those headaches that came up early last week, it made me appreciate the time I could take to go shopping with my girls. It made me appreciate being able to spend the day watching my boys play/coach basketball. It made me appreciate spending time with my Dad on his birthday. It actually made me appreciate doing the laundry because that was easy.
So, when you know you are going to have a not-so-easy day ahead, help yourself out a bit and plan ahead by making this super duper easy Crock Pot Chicken Cordon Bleu. You’ll thank yourself when you get home from a long day and dinner is ready and waiting for you.
Because like I said, I like easy things and this recipe is one of them.
Crock Pot Chicken Cordon Bleu
Yield: 6 - 8 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 2 - 3 hours on High or 4 - 8 hours on Low
This was a very easy recipe to make. It would be great for a busy day or even for a small event.
The chicken breasts I used were very thin and the meal was ready in 5 hours cooked on Low. If you have thicker chicken breasts, you should easily be able to start this recipe in the morning on Low and have it waiting for you when you get home from work.
• 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
• 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
• 1 cup milk
• 4 - 6 ounces sliced ham
• 4 - 6 ounces sliced Swiss cheese
• 1 (8 ounce) package herbed dry bread stuffing mix
• 1/4 cup butter, melted
1. 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.
2. Layer chicken breasts over the sauce.
3. Cover with slices of ham and then Swiss cheese.
4. Pour the remaining soup over the layers, stirring a little to distribute between layers.
5. Sprinkle the stuffing on top, and drizzle butter over stuffing.
6. Cover and cook on Low for 4 to 8 hours, or 2 to 3 hours on High.
I first saw this recipe on Chef in Training but it is originally from AllRecipes.com.
