Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons salted butter
  • 2 cups small-cubed ham
  • 1 1/4 cups grated Swiss cheese
  • 1 1/4 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese
  • 4 cooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with 1 tablespoon butter.

Step 2

Put the ham on a paper towel-lined plate and microwave for about 3 minutes to reduce the moisture content. Mix together the Swiss and Monterey Jack cheese in a bowl.

Step 3

Put about a third of chicken in a layer in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Top with half the ham. Sprinkle over 1/4 cup of the mixed cheese. Repeat 1 more time, then finish with a layer of chicken.

Step 4

Melt the remaining 5 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium heat. Put the panko in a bowl, pour in half of the melted butter, mix well and set aside.

Step 5

Add the flour to the remaining butter in the skillet and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, whisking out any lumps. Whisk in the milk, broth, Dijon and cayenne and let it cook until it begins to thicken. Remove from the heat and stir in 1 cup of the cheese until melted. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 6

Pour the sauce over the casserole. Sprinkle over the remaining 1 cup cheese, then the panko mix. Bake until the top is browned and the casserole is bubbling, 25 to 30 minutes.
