Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole – #LowCarb #Keto #Easy

This Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole will knock your socks off. It is so much easier than a traditional rolled and breaded cordon bleu and has even more flavor. With chicken, ham, and swiss in a creamy dijon sauce, you won’t miss the breading one bit. Since you aren’t coating or stuffing the chicken it is quick and easy.



Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole – Low Carb, Keto

I love chicken cordon bleu. But it’s always breaded.

This has been on my to-do list since my husband and I went to a fundraiser back in May. They had the best chicken cordon bleu ever. I knew I could make the same flavors into a killer casserole.


My casserole version was a hit with my family. I wasn’t sure if the kids would like the swiss cheese (honestly, I’m not a huge swiss cheese fan) but it worked so well with this flavor combination there were no complaints.

Ingredients


  • 6 cups shredded cooked chicken (from about 2 lb chicken)
  • 6 oz ham cut into bite size pieces
  • 4 oz butter melted
  • 6 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp white wine (optional)
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 5 oz swiss cheese


Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Put the chicken in the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish. Layer the pieces of ham on top.
  2. In a large bowl with an electric mixer combine the melted butter, softened cream cheese, white wine (if using), mustard, lemon juice, and salt. Blend until a thick sauce forms. Spread this sauce over the chicken and ham in the baking dish.
  3. Lay the slices of swiss cheese on top of the sauce. Bake for 30-40 minutes until hot.
  4. I broiled it for 2 minutes at the end so the cheese would get more golden and bubbly. If you decided to do that do not leave it unattended. It's very easy to burn the cheese topping.

Notes


  • Make sure to check out the video of this recipe right about the recipe card!
  • If you have a bottle of dry white wine open it adds a nice flavor. But I wouldn't open a new bottle just for this recipe. Unless you are planning on having a glass while you cook.
  • If your shredded chicken is on the dry side you may want to double the amount of sauce or add in 1/4 cup of chicken broth and mix the sauce into the shredded chicken before adding the toppings.
  • You can use chicken tenderloins instead of shredded chicken. Just cook, drain the cooking liquid, and then proceed with the rest of the recipe.
