Because Chicken Cordon Bleu is my favorite dish of all time, I will try to make any version I find. This one was definitely worth it!
For this you will need:
1 lb Pasta (I used rotini)
1 cup chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
1 cup ham, cooked and cubed
1 1/2 cups milk
8 oz. cream cheese (softened)
2 tbs dried minced onion
2 cups Swiss cheese, shredded
salt & pepper
1 cup Panko crumbs
1/2 cup butter, melted
Bring a large pot of water to a boil over me-high heat. Salt it and add the pasta, cooking until al dente (about 11 minutes). Drain and return to the pot. Add in the chicken and ham and toss to combine.
Preheat the broiler. In a medium saucepan, combine the milk, cream cheese, and minced onion over low-medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until it becomes a smooth texture (about 5 minutes).
Stir into the pasta mixture. Stir in the Swiss cheese and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Transfer pasta to a baking dish and top with Panko crumbs. Pour melted butter over crumbs and broil until browned ( approximately 4 minutes.
