Cheesy Chicken Cordon Bleu Rice Casserole and POM giveaway!


Good Thursday everyone! Hope you are all enjoying your week. A couple cool things for you….

First, is this great weeknight dinner idea. Easy and family friendly is always a plus in my book. I took one of my favorite dishes, Chicken Cordon Bleu and turned it into an easy to put together casserole. Trust me, the whole family will love this cheesy rice dinner. Enjoy! Oh, and check out my newest article I wrote for the 3-A-Day folks featured on and, I’m having so much fun with them.

Cheesy Chicken Cordon Bleu Rice Casserole

2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 medium onion, finely chopped

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 clove fresh garlic, minced

½ lb diced ham

2 Cups cooked shredded chicken breast

4 Tablespoons butter

¼ Cup flour

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon fresh cracked pepper

14 oz can chicken broth

3 Cups cooked rice of choice (I used white long grain)

1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 Cup shredded mozzarella or swiss cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Heat oil into a large 5 qt rimmed skillet over medium heat. Saute onion and bell pepper until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, ham and chicken. Cook for an additional 5 minutes. Melt butter then stir in flour, salt and pepper until combined. Slowly stir in chicken broth until well combined. Stir in cooked rice then transfer to a 9×13 inch baking dish. Top with cheddar and mozzarella cheeses. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cover the dish with foil the last 10 minutes for oozing cheese.

6-8 servings


Pomegranate Juice Givaway!

Second, I was excited to get an email from the folks at POM filling me about this great Blogger recipe contest they are hosting. Click HERE for the details on a chance to win $5,000 bucks.

They also gave me the opportunity to have a fun little giveaway. One of my readers will receive 10 coupons for free POM juice. I got a complimentary case in the mail today and YUM, it is good stuff not to mention really good for you.

To be entered, just leave a comment on this post by Saturday the 8th before midnight AZ MST. Good Luck everyone and have a great rest of your week!
