Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

I found this recipe through Pinterest on I made it a little bit smaller since it is just my husband and I. It was absolutely delicious and the left overs were great the next day too!

Serves 2 to 4

1 large chicken breast, cooked and chopped into bite size pieces
 4 to 6 slices deli ham
4 slices swiss cheese
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
1 1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp pepper
2-3 tbsp butter melted
3/4 cup bread crumbs
1 tsp dried parsley
salt and pepper to taste

 Grease a square baking dish. Spread chopped cooked chicken over the bottom of the dish.
 Shred the deli ham and scatter evenly over top the chicken.
 Place the cheese evenly over the ham.
 Meanwhile make the sauce. Melt the butter in a sauce pan over low to medium heat. Once butter is melted stir in the flour, do not brown. slowly pour in the milk while stirring. Cook until the sauce is smooth and thick. Stir in lemon juice, salt, pepper, and paprika. Bring sauce to a low boil and turn off heat.
 Pour sauce over the top of the casserole, being sure to pour down the sides as well.
Make the topping. Heat the butter in microwave until melted. Stir in bread crumbs, parsley, salt and pepper.
 Sprinkle over the top of the casserole.
Bake casserole uncovered for 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly throughout and topping and turned a light brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 to 10 minutes prior to serving.

From one newbie to another, enjoy!
