My husband and I have been eating low-carb for two years now and we mostly love all of the different recipes we have tried out. One thing that we do miss are casseroles, so lately I have been searching through tons of recipes and experimenting to find the best ones to share with you. One that we have really liked is called Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole and after a few substitutions (We do not care for Swiss cheese at all), we fell in love with it even more!
Low-Carb Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole
4 cups of cooked chicken breasts (diced up)
1 cup of smoked ham (you can use diced ham or buy the deli sliced ham and just tear it up)
1 cup Sour Cream
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp of salt
1/8 tsp of pepper
1 Tablespoon of Dijon mustard (you can use slightly more for a sharper flavor, but do not go overboard it is really strong)
1/8 cup of milk or cream
2 cups of shredded cheese ( you can use less cheese, but we love more! Also the original recipe calls for Swiss cheese but we thought it tasted better with cheddar cheese or you can use a mixture of the two)
For the Topping
1/2 cup of Parmesan Cheese
1/4 cup of Almond Flour
2 Tablespoons of butter (melted)
1.Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
2.In a large casserole dish, mix together the diced ham and cooked chicken breast.
3.In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, sour cream, garlic, salt, pepper, and the Dijon mustard to make the sauce.
4. Pour the sauce over the ham/chicken mixture and mix well.
5. Spread the shredded cheese over the top
6. For the topping: In a small bowl, mix the Parmesan cheese and the almond flour together, then stir in the melted butter until its all well-combined.
7. Sprinkle the topping mixture over the entire casserole as evenly as possible (It is a really sticky mixture so just drop it in dollops as evenly-spaced as possible)
8. Bake it for 20-25 minutes until the topping is nice and crispy and the filling is bubbling.
9. Let it sit for about 5 minutes and then serve.
Its so nice to find a low-carb recipe that my whole family will eat and this is definitely one that everyone loves. (I may have made it 3 times in the past month and there is never any leftovers!!)
