All the flavors of traditional cordon bleu but keto friendly and much easier to assemble since there is no stuffing or rolling involved.

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Season chicken cutlets with salt and pepper; set aside.

  • Whisk eggs and Dijon mustard together in a shallow bowl. Combine almond flour, Parmesan cheese, and garlic powder in a separate shallow bowl. Dip chicken cutlets into egg mixture, letting excess drip off. Dredge with almond flour mixture, then set on a plate.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken cutlets and cook until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip over and cook until chicken is no longer pink inside and the juices are running clear, 3 to 4 minutes more.

  • Place chicken cutlets on a baking sheet. Top with slices of ham and cover with shredded Swiss cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese has melted, 4 to 5 minutes. Serve immediately.

Cook's Notes:

You can buy chicken cutlets or make your own by butterflying chicken breasts open and pounding them thin.

Feel free to use pre-shredded cheese, but I prefer to shred my own since it melts much better.

Great recipe! I did not season the chicken but added 1/2 tsp of kosher salt and 1/4 tsp ground pepper to the dry mix. I also used grated Parmesan from a can and it turned out really well. I will definitely make this again and may add some crushed rosemary next time. Read More

Yum! This was so easy and so so good. I used olive oil rather than buy avocado oil and sliced Swiss since that was what I had already. This one will be a staple in my low carb rotation! Read More

This dish was AMAZING (and husband approved - which is a WIN in my house!)! Very simple and quick but also very tasty! I think next time I'm going to spice up my breading a little bit more and possibly add a little more mustard but overall great recipe! Read More
