Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

Not as good as rolling and stuffing, but WAY easier!

4 chicken breasts
pepper
seasoned salt
onion powder
4 oz ham deli meat
4 slices swiss cheese
1/4-1/2 c breadcrumbs

Sauce:
2 T butter
2 T flour
1 c milk
1 t garlic powder
1 chicken bouillon cube
1 T dijon mustard
1 t worcestershire sauce
1/2 c shredded Parmesan cheese
dash paprika

Cook chicken breasts with pepper, seasoned salt, and onion powder.  Chop into small bite-sized pieces and place into a bowl.  Chop ham and swiss into similar sized pieces and add to bowl.  Mix together and transfer to a sprayed 9x9 baking dish.

In a saucepan, melt butter, then add in flour and whisk until thick.  Slowly add in the milk, and then add in the garlic powder, bouillon, dijon, and worcestershire sauce.  Stir on medium high until it begins to thicken.  Remove from heat, and add in cheese and paprika.  Stir until fully incorporated.  You can return to the heat if you need to to melt the cheese.

Pour sauce over chicken/ham/swiss mixture.  Sprinkle breadcrumbs on top.  Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes until it's all melty and top is slightly browned.  Feel free to broil it at the end to add more crunch.
