This is another Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole is a make-ahead, freezer-friendly casserole. If you like to get an extra meal out of your efforts, then these two-for-one casseroles are the way to go.

I buy the disposable aluminum pans for the casserole that is going to go into the freezer because I don’t want  all of my pans and dishes to end up in the freezer, and they seem to work well for the freezer casseroles.

This Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole is also a great dinner to make with Christmas or Easter leftover ham or with weeknight leftover chicken.
