Cordon bleu chicken with Mediterranean veg

Bursting with colours !

I found this chicken cordon bleu in the hairy dieters cookbook , the chicken cheese and ham is spot on with keto , however they have it with sweet potato fries which is great just not on keto !! I’ve used cherry tomatoes in the veg be mindful as they contain natural sugar and not 100% keto friendly but they taste amazing and too good to leave out !

  • Chicken breasts
  • Emmental cheese slices
  • Ham
  • Red pepper
  • Green pepper
  • Yellow pepper
  • Red Onion
  • Mushrooms
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Garlic salt
  • Olive oil
  • Butter
  • Salt & pepper

Make a slit in the chicken breasts cover with cling film and bash with a rolling pin so that the chicken is flatter ,open the chickens so it’s like a butterfly place a Slice of ham and a slice of cheese inside and fold so the chicken is back into a fillet shape ( the cheese and ham should be like a filling inside the chicken ) season with salt and pepper and leave to one side

Preheat oven to a moderate heat

Roughly chop the peppers mushrooms onions cherry tomatoes place on a baking tray and sprinkle with the garlic salt and drizzle with a good glug of olive oil

Place the veg in the oven

In a large shallow pan melt some butter place the chickens in the pan and cook on both sides a good 6-7 minutes and they should go a lovely golden colour ( please make sure your chicken is cooked all the way through )

Once the veg are soft remove from the oven and place on a plate . Remove the chicken from the pan and place on top of the veg .

Enjoy 😊
