SCD Chicken Cordon Bleu

Here's a chicken recipe that I came up with a few weeks ago. It's easy and yummy!

SCD Chicken Cordon Bleu
serves 6-8

8 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons SCD-legal Dijon mustard
8 thin slices SCD-legal prosciutto
4 thin slices swiss cheese, cut into halves
1 egg
1/2 cup almond flour
1 tsp SCD-legal Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp black pepper

Preheat oven to 350. Pound chicken breasts between two pieces of plastic wrap to 1/4-inch thickness using flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin. Spread mustard on one side of each chicken breast. Layer one slice of prosciutto and cheese over mustard. Roll up each chicken breast from short end and secure with wooden toothpicks.

Beat the egg in a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl mix the almond flour, Italian seasoning, and black pepper. Coat the rolled-up chicken breasts first in egg and then in almond flour mixture.

Arrange chicken rolls in 11x17-inch baking pan. Cover; bake 10 minutes. Uncover; bake about 20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center.


That sounds delicious! I think I'll have to make it but I might accompany it with some illegal potatoes or bread...

hmmm... the # servings don't seem to jive with the # of chicken breasts. Is that what you meant?

Mom, you are right. I meant 6-8 servings (about 1 chicken breast per person). This recipe could be cut in half easily if you don't need to feed 8 people. Although, I like to have lots of leftovers because it reheats well in the microwave.

YUMMY! Thanks for the recipe. I cannot wait to try it out. Hope all is well.


Hello fellow SCDer! I'm de-lurking to let you know that I love your blog, and your mom's as well. You have a beautiful family!

I've finally added an SCD section to my family blog, and I will do my best to add recipes as I come up with them as well. I put your blog on the blogroll, too.

Thanks for all the inspiration!
