And now for a regular post:



This was such a delicious casserole!! Although we didn't think it really tasted like chicken cordon bleu, we agreed that it tasted great!!

This wasn't exactly a super fast dinner to make because I had to cook the chicken, which I like to roast for things like this. I also had to cook the rice and I used brown rice. That takes a little while, too. It was definitely worth it in the end and it made enough for a few meals. That's a plus!!

1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 stalks celery, diced

4 tbsp. butter
1/4 c flour
1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper
14 oz can chicken broth
3 cups cooked rice (I used brown rice.)
1 c shredded cheddar
1 c shredded mozzarella or swiss

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Heat oil in a large, rimmed skillet over medium heat.
3. Add the onions, celery, and peppers and cook for about 5 minutes, until tender.
4. Then add the garlic, chicken and ham and cook for another 5 minutes until heated through.
5. Add the butter until it is melted, then stir in the flour, salt and pepper until combined.
