Keto Chicken Cordon Bleu

Dish Info

Cheesy stuffed chicken that is crispy on the outside served with a creamy sauce is near-perfect food, in my opinion. Keto Chicken Cordon Bleu is a touch fancy, but in reality, it is much easier to make than you would imagine. This recipe is excellent for a dinner party or any time you need something that feels a bit special.


Chicken – 24 ounces boneless chicken breast or thighs – Salt and Pepper – 4 ounces sliced Swiss cheese – 4 ounces sliced deli ham or turkey – 2 eggs beaten – ¾ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese – ½ cup finely ground almond flour – 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning – 2 tablespoons avocado oil omit for oven or air fryer Sauce – 1 stick unsalted butter – ½ cup chicken broth – ½ cup heavy cream – 2 ounces cream cheese – 2 tablespoons dijon mustard – 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese – Salt and pepper to taste

– Preheat oven to 350 degrees. (Omit if you are cooking in an air fryer.) – Place the chicken in a zip-top bag. Using a meat mallet, pound to ¼-inch thickness.

– Season on both sides with salt and pepper. (I used ½ teaspoon each.) – Place a piece of chicken on a clean plate and top with ½ ounce each of ham and cheese.

– Roll the chicken up and secure with toothpicks.

– Place the eggs in a shallow bowl. In another bowl, combine the Parmesan cheese, almond flour, and Italian seasoning.

– Dip the chicken in the eggs and then coat with the breadcrumb mixture, pressing the mixture firmly to the surface of the chicken with your hands.

– Heat a large skillet to medium-high and add oil. Cook the chicken for 4 minutes, until browned on one side. Flip and cook for 3 minutes longer. – Transfer to a baking dish and cook until the chicken is cooked through, about 7 to 10 minutes longer.

– While the chicken cooks, melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat.  Add broth, heavy cream, and cream cheese, and cook until the cream cheese is melted.

– Stir in Dijon mustard and Parmesan cheese and simmer over low heat for about 5 to 7 minutes, until the cheese melts and the mixture has thickened. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
