Healthy chicken cordon bleu with tender juicy chicken, warm, salty ham and melty Swiss Cheese is a quick and tasty one pan main dish!

I grew up eating chicken cordon bleu but to be honest, it was the kind delivered by the Schwans delivery driver. I think his name was Dave.

This post uses product from Clifty Farm Country Meats but the recipe and opinions are all my own.

You’ve seen the versions of chicken cordon bleu I’m talking about right?

They’re the little individual packets of stuffed chicken you can get in the grocery store. You know, the ones stuffed with butter or ham and cheese.

As a kid we freakin’ loved these and in our minds it was the best chicken cordon bleu recipe EVER!

But luckily, time marches on and our tastes tend to improve a bit. And that, my friends is why we’re talking chicken cordon bleu today.

Healthy Chicken Cordon Bleu

Easy chicken cordon bleu is almost as easy to make as the mass produced baked chicken version but it is waaaaaay tastier, it’s healthier and it’s low carb and gluten free, too.

So really, what’s not to love?

How to Make Healthy Chicken Cordon Bleu

Boneless skinless chicken breasts get pan seared in a little olive oil, seasoned with simple salt and fresh cracked black pepper.

No bread crumbs here, we’re keeping things super simple and lowering the saturated fat, too. Plus, it’s making this recipe gluten free!

When your chicken is done cooking, top it with sliced Swiss cheese and sliced Clifty Farm Country Ham Biscuit Cut Slices.

Now, it’s time to make the Dijon sauce which is downright delicious!

Add the chicken broth to the pan, scraping up and little browned bits of yumminess. Cook the chicken broth until it reduces by half. This takes about 1-2 minutes. then remove from the heat.

Add the Dijon mustard and the butter, stirring to combine.

Top the cooked chicken, ham and cheese with the creamy Dijon sauce. Yum!!!

Serve with Low Carb Cauliflower Mash and oven roasted broccoli or whatever sides you prefer!
