Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta

If you love chicken cordon bleu and want to feed an army, this is the recipe for you. Before I delve into specifics, I need to state a disclaimer. *This is not made with bleu cheese. I repeat, this is not made with bleu cheese. My poor hubby claims he had never had chicken cordon bleu and one of the reasons behind it was because he thought it contained bleu cheese. So, if you weren't sure before, you can rest assured now. Like I stated before, this dish can feed an army. I used my largest skillet, which we hardly ever use, and had to use to hands to move it from the stovetop to the oven because it was so heavy. That being said, you may want to half it if its just for 2, maybe even 4 people with a side. I'm haven't gotten into making meals and freezing them, but if you do try it, let me know how it turns out! Aside from the rather large size of this dish, it was so flavorful and creamy. It tasted just like eating chicken cordon bleu plus pasta. It's one of those recipes that is great when you're craving warm comfort food. As fall and winter our quickly approaching, this is a great meal to make! Enjoy!

30 Minute Skillet Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta


1 (12 ounce) package bow tie pasta
2 Tablespoons butter
1 cup chicken broth
2 cups half and half
2 (10 ounce) cans cream of chicken soup
1 teaspoon honey mustard
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
salt and pepper to taste
3 Tablespoons sour cream
2 cups cooked rotisserie chicken, shredded
2 cups deli ham, chopped (about 1/2 pound)
8 slices Swiss cheese
1 1/4 cups Italian Panko bread crumbs
Cook package of Bow Tie pasta according to the package directions.
Heat a deep/large (oven safe) skillet over medium high heat. Add butter and melt completely. Add chicken broth, half and half, and cream of chicken soup. Whisk together to combine.
Add honey mustard, onion powder, and salt and pepper. Stir and bring the sauce to a simmer 4-5 minutes, or until slightly thickened, making sure to stir occasionally. 
 Add the chicken, ham, and sour cream to the skillet and stir. Next, add pasta and stir everything together.  
Top with swiss cheese. Then, sprinkle panko over the top.
Turn on your broiler. Place the skillet in the oven, allowing the cheese to melt and the panko to get golden brown. It will only take a few minutes.
Remove from oven and cool a couple of minutes before serving.
