Let Me Introduce the Improv-ers: Heidi from the Crock Pot Ladies

This post comes at such a good time for me.  I am SWAMPED with the new house and blogging is getting to be a little harder to manage.   I  really need to just follow the example of Heidi from the Crock-Pot Ladies and use that time-saving appliance to its fullest.  She is amazing, making delicious main dishes and fantastic desserts.


Hi there everyone, I am Heidi Kennedy from over at Crock-Pot Ladies and I am just thrilled and honored to be featured today here on Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker! I am a work-at-home mother to 5 children (ages 21, 15, 9 and 7 year old twins) and I love cooking in my crock-pot and sharing recipes for easy and sometimes adventurous meals and dishes you can make in your crock-pot. There are four us of ladies who share our cooking adventures and we really are having fun (shout out to Tara, Sarah and Katie!) I have really enjoyed participating in the Improv Challenges here at Frugal Antics but have been taking a break from them the past few months because with the kids home during the summer I just haven’t had as much time as I would like…plus I think they suck all the creative juices out of me!
I think so far my most favorite recipe I have done for the Improv Challenge was the Crock-Pot Carrot Cake I did for the carrots and ginger challenge. While a carrot cake does not sound very inventive (like some of the other improvisers) but the challenge for me was baking in the crock-pot, which you can do quite nicely I think! 
Today however I wanted to share this really tasty recipe for Crock-Pot Chicken Cordon Bleu…such a oh-la-la sounding dish for dinner but SUPER easy to make and it is great for family meals or even something more fancy…plus it is actually a pretty frugal dish too, it just sounds fancy!
Crock-Pot Chicken Cordon Bleu
  • 4 large boneless/skinless chicken breasts (or 6 smaller ones..the ones I used were HUGE!)
  • 1 (10.75 oz.) can Cream of Chicken soup
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 oz sliced ham
  • 4 oz sliced Swiss cheese
  • 1 6 oz pkg of herb or chicken flavored stuffing mix (such as Stove Top)
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • ¼ cup water
  1. In a small bowl mix together the cream of chicken soup and milk and whisk to combine.
  2. Pour half of the soup & milk mixture in the bottom of a 6-7 quart oval crock-pot.
  3. Layer the chicken breasts over the sauce.
  4. Cover the chicken with a layer of ham and then a layer of Swiss cheese.
  5. Pour the remaining soup mixture over the chicken.
  6. Sprinkle the chicken with the dry stuffing mix and then drizzle the top with the melted butter and ¼ cup of water.
  7. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours or on high for 2-3 hours.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
