Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

Yep. Another Paula Deen Magazine recipe! We love Chicken Cordon Bleu in our house, so I was intrigued by this recipe. It was very easy to fix and everyone loved it. The only rice I had on hand was a seasoned packet. I would definitely use plain rice next time due to the salt in the seasoned packet, and I would omit the salt that the recipe calls for. I think the ham adds enough salt to the dish. This would probably be a good freezer dish, too!

Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 large onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups shredded, cooked chicken
3/4 cups prediced ham
1 cup uncooked long-grain rice
1 1/4 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

*Preheat oven to 350. Spray an 11x7-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
*In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook until onion is tender. Add chicken and ham; cook until heated through. Add rice and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in chicken broth, milk, salt and pepper; cook for 2 minutes.
*Pour mixture into prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese. Cover and bake for 45 minutes or until rice is tender.
