My favorite dish these days is Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole. Instead of having to prep and cook ingredients before you put them in a dish (like my mom used to do), you use uncooked rice and uncooked chicken tenders. You pile all the ingredients into a casserole dish and bake for 45 minutes and it’s done. You can easily make and bake this casserole in less than an hour. And guess what? It tastes amazing.
Need a one-dish dinner that will feed the whole family? Look no further than this mouthwatering casserole:

Step 3: Place the sliced ham evenly over the top of the chicken.
