Tip

You can purchase a cooked rotissery chicken and remove the meat. Just make sure to check the marinade ingredients so that it doesn't contain sugar, gluten or other preservatives.

Cook your own chicken

It's also easy to cook the chicken from scratch. Here's a simple recipe.

    This is a cool twist on the idea. My problem with chicken cordon bleu is that it often falls apart. Designing the dish that way just makes so much sense.

    Hi Patti, I'm wanting to start Keto but am a bit overwhelmed about the counting of fats/protein/carbs. Would you say it should be ok if I just stick to the recipes exactly, as a way to start out? Thanks

    Stef- google Keto menus. You can check out so many that have a 7 day kick off plan. Just start with Eggs for breakfast any way you like them. Any meat and salad for lunches, cheese stick for snack, and a fun recipe for dinner. A yummy pizza crust is a chicken pizza crust. Google that one, it's delish as long as you make it thin enough.

    Hint: 2 lbs. chicken breast or breast tenders
    2 bricks cream cheese
    warm them in the microwave just until they're spreadable
    add in 3 Tbsp heavy whipping cream
    stir together
    add in garlic, onion, salt, pepper, mustard, don't use the vinegar!
    add in 1 c cheese of your choice
    chop the chicken small and brown in olive oil or butter
    chop up the deli ham
    spray casserole dish with Pam
    spread the cream cheese in the pan thinly
    toss the browned chicken and cut up ham on top of that
    sprinkle more salt or pepper, or red pepper flakes, season as desired
    (ranch dressing sprinkled on it tastes GREAT!)
    top with more cheese
    Makes a bigger dish so you can have lots of leftovers, and they freeze perfectly
    more satisfying
    I don't even know what's up with the vinegar...

    Week 2 of Keto for my family and I and this was a hit . Even my son who has autism didn’t fuss . I also did the recipe like Mrs Amy and it was so good . Definitely making this one again. Go Keto.

    I’m going to make this soon. Do you think if I put some finely chopped almonds on top it would make a nice crust?

    not bad but 1166 kcals, for a dieter a full serving means nothing else to eat that day

    Do not, I repeat, do not stress about calories! This way of eating doesn’t count calories. Go back to the beginning and read about why not.

    I love this recipe. SO tasty. However, next time I shan’t bother to precook the chicken, as it was too dry for me.
  18. Brittny
    Omg yummmmm! Did exactly the recipe. I also used Vermont sharp cheddar cheese. It was so tasty!!
  19. Emily
    This was a bit too rich for me I love chicken cordon bleu but this was far too creamy and heavy for my taste. I did substitute home sauteed chicken and caramelized onions in place for a rotisserie chicken and I think I made the right choice.
  20. Christine Forney
    I folllowed Amy-Jean's version and it was awesome!
  21. Autum
    We made this by the recipe except that I added a capful of white wine and a capful of white vinegar to mellow the vinegar out. Very good! This is a keeper in the rotation. Very easy to make.

    Not my favorite recipe that I’ve made in the past 3 weeks, wasn’t awful & we are eating our leftovers for lunch.
  24. Jennifer
    I made this and it was delicious. It is bit heavy so next time I might use a little bit less cream cheese and add some cream instead; but I will definitely make it again.

    Yum! Made this last night with 2 x chicken breasts and used creme fraiche (because I forgot to buy cream cheese!). Looks enough for three days for me with a bit of salad on the side too. Definite winner by using precooked ingredients!

    can it be frozen ?

    Typically dishes with a large amount of cream cheese, cheese, or cream don't freeze well as the sauces can break on reheating. If you decide to freeze this one, reheat it slowly and stir frequently to help keep the sauce from breaking.
