Keto Chicken Cordon Bleu

Here is another Keto recipe that I threw together and it turned out wonderfully. Below you can see my instructions on how to make Keto Chicken Cordon Bleu.I also wanted to apologize for our blog being down yesterday! Our host server is a company in Cali, and I think they were having power outage issues.

Preheat the oven to 450 F, especially if it takes a while to heat up like ours does.

Gather your ingredients; I find I can work a lot faster if everything is out and ready, and I make a lot less mistakes.

Take your pork rinds and crush or pulverized them… I will warn you, I think they smell gross.

Crazy how small they get.

Add the seasonings you want, I just looked up a recipe I found online and wrote the ingredients below,but you can always add whatever you think would taste best.

Mix up everything really well.

DSC_3817

Add the Parmesan Cheese.

Stir, stir, and stir some more.

If you have thinly cut chicken you are lucky, I had to slice the breasts I had thinner without cutting myself so good luck.

Pound those little chicks as thin as possible.

Top with sliced swiss cheese.

Spray the crap out of your pyrex so nothing sticks.

Layer on the sliced ham of your choice.

Grant being artsy fartsy.

Then start rolling them.

I didn’t use string or toothpicks because they just stayed together well.

DSC_3837

Roll in the beaten eggs.

DSC_3841

Then in the bread crumb mixture.

DSC_3844

Place with seam down.

Add the rest, and if you notice any  spots that aren’t covered in breading I just dusted more on after they were in the pan.

Then spray the tops with pam spray, I guess to get the breading crispier.

DSC_3856

Bake them for 25 mins or until done.

They turned out really yummy and super easy, next time I might make the bread crumbs in advanced and store them in an airtight container to speed up the process. Below you can see the recipe.

    I just made this tonight (on my day 2 of keto)! It turned out awesome. Ended up with a ton of leftover breading (our supermarket only had 3 1/2 oz bags of pork rinds so I bought 4 bags to try to get to 16 oz… turns out it was overkill). But it was delicious. I even made a mustard sauce with some heavy cream, mustard, salt and pepper, and a tiny bit of sweetener. Thanks so much!
