Chicken Cordon Bleu

Low Carb Chicken Cordon Bleu

This recipe is for clients on our Meat Lovers Delight Menu, click here to find lots of great recipes for other MRC menu plans.

Our Chicken Cordon Bleu is stuffed with melted Swiss cheese and thinly sliced ham. In this milled down version we dredge the chicken in Parmesan cheese to create a crispy outer layer, no deep frying needed! Feel free to switch out the Swiss cheese for either bleu or for a nutty flavor try Gruyère. Serve this savory chicken dish with a tangy salad or fresh steamed veggies.

MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.
