Slow Cooker Chicken Cordon Bleu

Oh my goodness, this is so yummy and definitely on my “comfort foods” list from now on.  The recipe was super easy to put together. We enjoyed it, and it looked a little on the fancy side to serve to our guest. Yet all I had to do was put it all in the slow cooker and wait for it. It was creamy and really satisfying. We served a really great spinach salad with it and some rolls and corn on the cobb. Enjoy!          
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
(or one breast per person. I had 8.)
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
1 cup of milk (I used 1-1/4c)
6 slices of deli ham
(OR 1 slice per breast…get some really good ham!)
6 slices of Swiss cheese (1 slice per chicken breast.)
1 (8 Oz) package of Stovetop Herb Stuffing mix 
1/4 cup melted butter
Mix the soup and milk in a bowl. Pour some of the soup onto the bottom of the slow cooker and spread it around so it coats the bottom of the cooker. Then layer the chicken breasts over the sauce.  Next layer the ham over the chicken and then layer the Swiss cheese over the ham. If you had more chicken breast, like I did, then you would do another layer of chicken breasts and ham and cheese.
 Sprinkle the stuffing over the top and then pour the remaining soup mixture over the stuffing. Try to cover the stuffing. Then pour the melted butter over the that.  I think it works best if you try to wet your stuffing. You don’t want it to be crunchy. Spread the soup mixture a bit over the stuffing or even try to poke a spoon or fork down and in between the layers. Cover the slow cooker and cook on med to high for 4-6 hours.
