Keto Chicken Cordon Bleu {gluten free}

Sharing is caring!

Chicken Cordon Bleu is such a classic dish, but it doesn’t get much recognition these days, and it should! I revamped this classic to make it gluten free and keto friendly, and it is out of this world! 

Traditional Chicken Cordon Bleu is breaded and fried, but my version is unbreaded and baked, making it a bit healthier as well as gluten free and keto friendly. 

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 4 4oz chicken breasts (2 8oz breasts cut in half lengthwise works perfectly)
  • 4 slices deli ham, regular slice (Boar’s Head maple glazed honey coat ham is my favorite)
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard 
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch (or xanthan gum)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400°F

Season both sides of the chicken breasts with salt and pepper to taste

Place seasoned chicken on a greased baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes per side, until no longer pink inside

While chicken is baking, make the sauce by melting butter in a medium saucepan and stirring in the heavy cream

Add the parmesan cheese, black pepper, dijon mustard, and cornstarch (or xanthan gum), and stir until cheese has melted and sauce has thickened

After chicken has baked, turn oven broiler to high 

Top each cooked chicken breast with one slice of ham and one slice of Swiss cheese

Place back in oven under broiler until cheese has melted

Remove from oven and top with sauce

Serve immediately

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days

Pairs well with Green Beans Almondine or Keto Green Beans
