How to Make Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

This casserole is very easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. In a large bowl, stir together cream of chicken soup, sour cream, grated swiss cheese, cooked chopped chicken, diced ham, onion powder, garlic powder, and dijon mustard. Season with salt and black pepper. Spread the chicken mixture into a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. In a small bowl, melt butter. Add crushed Ritz crackers and stir to coat. Sprinkle the crackers over the top of the casserole. Bake uncovered in the oven until bubbly. Garnish with parsley.
