Chicken Cordon Bleu

This lovely hot dish tastes just like its namesake but without all the work. It’s a delicious main course and great for family dinners. Just don’t be surprised if you want to keep it all for yourself!

Chicken Cordon Bleu gets its name from the French term, meaning ‘blue ribbon,’ though the original preparation originated in Switzerland.

This keto/low carb version uses a tasty almond flour crumb topping, instead of the more traditional breadcrumb one, and isn’t quite as fiddly to put together.

It reheats beautifully if there are leftovers, though it’s such a crowd pleaser it’s unlikely there will be any.
