I am having a great time coming up with new 30 Minute Skillet Dinners to share with you! There is just something wonderful about a hearty meal that can be made (mostly!) in one pan and in such a short time. It seems that time is something many of us are in short supply of, dang it. Why is there always so much to do? I wish I knew, don’t you!

The fabulous Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta I have to share with you today just might be my new favorite skillet dinner. Not that I don’t love this amazing 30 Minute Skillet Lasagna, or the delicious 30 Minute Skillet Chicken Enchiladas I shared a couple of weeks ago. They are both great. However, the Chicken Cordon Blue Pasta just speaks to my comfort-food-loving heart.  It really does.

Let me tell you what you will find in this wonderful dish. Hearty pasta, ham and tender chunks of chicken are tossed with a rich and creamy sauce. Swiss cheese and Italian Panko bread crumbs are layered on top and broiled to a crispy, cheesy delight.

It’s good, man. Really good.

My family gave it 7 thumbs up. Hope you all love it, too!

Let’s make it! You, me and your skillet of wonder…

8. Grab some Italian Herb Panko Bread Crumbs. If you only have Italian Bread Crumbs, that will work out fine as well.

Sprinkle 1 1/4 cup of the Italian Panko Breadcrumbs over the top of the cheese.

Allow the cheese to melt and the breadcrumbs to get golden brown. Be careful! This will only take a couple of minutes in the oven. Be sure to watch it closely.

  1. This is delicious. Next time though, I’m going to mix shredded swiss into the mix instead of sliced on top. I also had the use a 9 x 13 casserole to finish cooking- 30 minutes at 400 degrees.

  2. Excellent!! I cut the recipe in 1/2 because it’s just the 2 of us but still have plenty for leftovers! I used whole milk, provolone cheese, and regular Italian bread crumbs– so good!! Will share with my daughters for their families.
