Low Carb Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole – Keto – Simple and Easy

Welcome all! Papa G here. Today I present
a low carbohydrate twist on a culinary classic.
Chicken Cordon Bleu casserole. Yep.
Nothing says I have no time to cook like
a casserole, but with this simple recipe,
you’ll have time to spare. Let’s get started…
To start, we’re going to need
about 16 ounces of cooked, shredded
chicken. You can cook the chicken
yourself, but if you know me, simple is
what rules the day. I won’t pass up a
shortcut here and there, and I picked
this rotisserie chicken up for my local
grocer for about $6 and save myself
a lot of time. Once the chicken is
shredded, we’ll add the juice of 1 lemon;
some garlic powder; salt; and some ground
black pepper. We’ll mix this well and set
aside. Next, we’ll start on the sauce. Melt
some unsalted butter on medium heat and
add a chicken bouillon cube; some heavy
cream; salt; black pepper; some ground
nutmeg; and we’ll finish off with some
Dijon mustard. Mix well and simmer for
about 10 minutes; stirring occasionally
until it thickens and the bouillon cube
has completely dissolved. Now before we
begin to construct our casserole, we’ll
make the topping that will simulate our
breading. To 1 cup of ground pork rinds,
we’ll add some garlic powder; onion
powder; ground black pepper; dried basil;
and some unsalted melted butter. You’re
going to need to use your hands to mix
to help ensure no clumping. We’ll set
this aside and begin to assemble our
casserole. Use a 9 by 13 inch casserole
dish and start by adding the shredded
chicken spreading it as evenly as
possible across the bottom. Now it’s on
to our second layer – the ham. I asked
the deli to slice my ham as thin as
possible and I shredded it as I put it
down. With the chicken shredded, this will
help make it fork friendly when we eat.
Now we’ll lay down our third layer. We’ll
cover our ham completely with some
thinly sliced Swiss cheese. Now our sauce has
simmered for about 10 to 15 minutes and
we’ll pour it over our casserole. Finally,
we’ll put our topping on. Evenly spread
it over the top of the casserole a
little at a time. Now it’s ready for the
oven or you can do what i did. I put some
plastic wrap over the top and stored in the
refrigerator until I was ready for dinner.
When you are ready, you’ll place the
casserole in a preheated 350-degree oven
for about 30 minutes. When it comes out,
it’s hard to wait. but let it cool for
about 10 minutes. Slice and serve. This is
one dish that will become a low carbohydrate
family favorite. With simple and easy
added to the recipe, you can’t go wrong.
