Chicken Cordon Bleu Low Carb Recipe | Keto Vale

Keto Chicken Cordon Bleu

Formerly in France, the term blue ribbon or “cordon bleu‘ refers to the cooks who wear blue aprons. Nowadays it also means food prepared by outstanding cooks with a very high standard.

The cordon bleu is an exquisite stuffed chicken recipe, crispy on the outside and juicy  on the inside. To prepare our keto version, we will use bacon to wrap around the chicken breast that has been stuffed with ham and cheese inside.

You can serve this bacon-wrapped chicken breast on a bed of lettuce. If you want to make it for interesting, you can coat the chicken with almond flour and fry it until the surface is brown and crispy.

Here is how it would look with and without the almond flour coating:

  8. If you want to make the bread crumb coating, you can brush the cooked chicken breast with egg liquid (1 egg or less) and then coat it with 2-3 tbsp of almond flour and then fry it for 3 minutes until it's brown and crispy.

Recipe Notes

Note: We find that by coating the breast with the egg it helps make the almond flour stick around the breast surface better. The reason we do the coating last is because almond flour tends to burn quicker than wheat flour. So if you coat the raw chicken in the beginning instead of cooked chicken, the almond flour coating might get burnt before the chicken breast gets cooked thoroughly.
