Keto Chicken Cordon Bleu

When I was young, I grew up eating mainly Indian food however if my mom was ever away and my dad had to figure out dinner for the family, he either ordered fried chicken or let us pick our favorite frozen meals as a “treat.” For some reason, a frozen chicken cordon bleu – I think from Stouffer’s – was one of my favorite guilty pleasures. Recently, I got a little nostalgic and started recreating some of my favorite childhood recipes so they are keto-approved – and this keto chicken cordon bleu was on my short list to make. It was a hit – thanks to one of my favorite breading alternatives, Pork Panko, which creates a crispy breaded crust that worked perfectly in this baked keto chicken recipe and also is great for fried “breaded” recipes as well.

Try to use larger chicken breasts – they are easier to roll and hold together nicely after baking and removing the toothpick that holds it in place while baking. For cooking spray, I prefer coconut oil or avocado oil spray.

With black forest ham and melty swiss cheese in the center, this keto chicken cordon bleu recipe is one your whole family will love – whether they’re low carb or not!
