Country Crock original spread

I want to share a casserole recipe that is easy to throw together, but gives you that gourmet comfort food type of feeling. I am going to show you how to turn the somewhat complicated, yet popular, Chicken Cordon Bleu dish into a family friendly casserole. To save on some calories and cost, I used Country Crock Original Spread. Curious what some of the benefits of Country Crock are?

  • Have 0g trans fat per serving
  • Contain no partially hydrogenated oils
  • Have no cholesterol
  • Are 70% less fat than butter per serving
  • Have 30% fewer calories than butter per serving

Now back to the recipe. 3 out of 4 of my kids asked for seconds, as did the husband and house guest. Talk about comfort food? So creamy and full of yummy flavors!

Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • Layers
  • 1 whole rotisserie chicken, shredded or chopped
  • 1/2 lb deli honey ham, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 lb Swiss cheese, thinly sliced
  • Sauce
  • 4 Tbs Country Crock Original Spread
  • 4 Tbs flour
  • 3-1/4 cups milk
  • 2 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1 Tbs Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Bridgeport Seasoning (combo of paprika, romano, onion and rosemary)
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • Topping:
  • 6 Tbs Country Crock Original Spread, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups Country Stuffing (breadcrumbs will work)
  • 1 tsp parsley
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350° and grease a 2 qt casserole dish.
  2. Cover the bottom of baking dish with shredded chicken. Top chicken with torn or cut ham pieces, and lay Swiss cheese over the top of everything.
  3. In a medium sauce pot, melt 4 Tbs of Country Crock over medium heat. When butter is melted, whisk in the flour to create a roux. Continue stirring for about 30 seconds, to cook out the flour taste.
  4. Slowly pour milk into the roux and whisk, cooking over medium heat. Stir while cooking, until the sauce thickens.
  5. When sauce thickens, stir in the lemon juice, Dijon mustard, salt, Bridgeport Seasoning and pepper. Bring sauce back to a boil and remove from heat.
  6. Pour sauce evenly over the casserole.
For the topping:
  1. Mix stuffing or breadcrumbs, and parsley, into the 6 Tbs of melted Country Crock. Sprinkle crumbs over the top of the casserole and bake uncovered for 45 minutes.
