Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

Since I've been baking more, I've been making easier dinners. So, I made this chicken dish. While we were eating, my son told me that it wasn't done since the middle was pink. I told him the pink was the ham. Then my daughter asked why I put ham in the middle of chicken. I said it was suppose to be like that. I make new dishes all the time but boy my children didn't like the idea of ham inside their chicken. My husband said it had a nice taste and he liked it. The kids said they liked it besides the ham. I guess I will have to make more dishes stuffed so it isn't such a foreign idea to them.
