  • 4 cups of diced ham
  • 2 cups of Swiss cheese, grated
  • 2 cups of whole milk
  • 1 cup of chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 2 cups of panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
  • Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


Preheat the Oven:
Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish and set it aside.

Prepare the Cream Sauce:
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Stir in the flour to create a roux, cooking for about 2 minutes until it turns golden brown. Gradually whisk in the milk and chicken broth, stirring constantly until the sauce thickens. This should take about 5-7 minutes. Reduce the heat to low, then add Dijon mustard, lemon juice, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. Continue to cook and stir for another 2-3 minutes. Remove the sauce from heat.

Assemble the Casserole:
In the greased baking dish, layer the cooked chicken followed by the diced ham. Pour the cream sauce evenly over the chicken and ham. Sprinkle the grated Swiss cheese on top of the sauce.

Prepare the Topping:
In a separate bowl, combine the panko bread crumbs and grated Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the casserole.

Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 25-30 minutes or until the casserole is bubbly and the top is golden brown.

Garnish and Serve:
Once the casserole is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. If desired, garnish with fresh parsley before serving.
