Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner

The other day I made a quick errand run to Sam’s Club to pickup up a few essentials and grab something for my sister-in-law to be. The kids and I then met up with her and exchanged her items and I got a camera that my brother no longer needed… yippee! Y’all know I have been talking about getting a new camera… new-to-me is new enough!

This actually happens to be the same camera that was used at my daughter’s wedding so I know how well it works and I’m excited to play with it and start taking some awesome photos!

By the time I got home, I was so ready for a nap and EVERYONE was starving. I decided to make a quick sheet pan dinner with some Super Yummy Caulitaters. This meal was so simple!

This particular day I also made a simple cheese sauce to go with it as Mr. Awesome can’t have broccoli without the cheese.

I should have doubled the recipe as EVERYONE DEVOURED it.

Eureka! I Found My Belt And A Lot Of Gold!

Oh my! What a day we have had. As you know from yesterday’s post I was feeling a bit overwhelmed before we even made it to our dance… I finally found that missing belt though and you’ll never guess where. If it had been a snake it would have bit me… it really would have.



Remember the pile of clothes I had laid out on the bed? Can you guess where it is? Take a closer look…


See it now? I have no idea how it got there even though I am quite sure I must’ve done it before I put away my crinoline. I’ve never done this before so I’m really quite puzzled as to why I did that but it is safe and sound where it belongs now.

Crazy thing is I didn’t really even need it last night as it wasn’t quite the right shade… sigh. Here’s a quick pic of my outfit… I was hoping to get a better pic last night but that never happened either.

Chicken Cordon Casserole

This is one of those recipes that takes me a little bit longer to put together so we don’t have it as often as some of the other recipes. It is also a bit more expensive to make so it is a treat when we do have it.

Chicken Cordon Casserole


  • 4-5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced
  • 10 – 12  slices of ham
  • 10 – 12 slices of Swiss cheese
  • 1 t. black pepper
  • 1t. salt
  • 1/2 c. butter or margarine
  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 1 c. chicken broth
  • 3 T. Dijon Mustard
  • 2 c. crackers, crushed
  • 1/3 c. Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 T. garlic powder
  • 1 T. onion powder
  • 1 T. parsley
  • 1/3 c. butter or margarine, melted


Preheat your oven to 350.

Grease a 9 x 13 casserole dish.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter or margarine and whisk in the flour until well combined.

Slowly add the chicken broth making sure to stir well.

When the sauce starts to thicken add the mustard, salt, and pepper.  Stir and remove from heat.

Mix the Parmesan cheese, crackers, garlic powder, onion powder, and parsley. Set to the side.

Pour a small amount of the sauce on the bottom of the pan.

Place the chicken in the bottom of the pan and season with salt and pepper, as desired.

Drizzle the chicken with the sauce.

Place the ham slices in a layer over the chicken.

Then layer the Swiss cheese.

Spread the sauce over the cheese.

Sprinkle on the cracker and cheese mixture.

Drizzle with melted butter.

Bake for 40 – 45 minutes, until the chicken is cooked and the topping has browned.

This is one of those simple dishes that reminds me of growing up. I think everyone should learn to make this dish so you can have it to fall back on for those days that you just don’t feel like doing anything challenging.

I usually pair this with some mashed potatoes and a veggie on the side. I will also include the instructions for turning this into Oven BBQ chicken after the recipe. Continue reading “Easy Baked Chicken & Oven BBQ Chicken”

Quick Tip: If you don’t want or like to roll out the dumplings you can add a little extra milk to your dough and drop it by spoonfuls into the boiling broth.
