Skip the bread crumbs, almond flour and panko breading in this super easy keto chicken cordon bleu casserole!
Your first step in making this keto friendly Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole recipe is to preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Next, put the chicken in the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 in casserole dish. Then you want to layer the pieces of ham on top.
Make the cheese sauce. In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, butter, white wine, mustard, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Then blend these ingredients with an electric hand mixer until a creamy sauce forms.
Next spread the mustard cream sauce over the top of the casserole. After that, sprinkle the Swiss cheese on top of the sauce.
Next, place the casserole in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until hot and the cheese melts. Also, you can broil it for 1-2 minutes if desired for bubbly cheese. Finally, garnish with parsley if desired and enjoy!
Pro tip: before broiling you can also top with crushed pork rinds for a little extra texture.
