Summer is flying by, and I haven’t done nearly as much sewing as I’d hoped to. I’ve been busy this summer reading books about low carb and ketogenic diets. In the process of researching this way of eating, I’ve happened upon some websites and blogs that are full of amazing recipes.
One of my favorite blogs is Joy Filled Eats, and my favorite recipe from that site is Chicken Cordon Blue. It’s easy to make, tastes delicious, and fits in with our low carb eating plan. This recipe would be a hit even if your family is not into low carb fare. It’s a pretty basic recipe that uses ingredients that most of us have on hand.
The casserole consists of chicken and ham, a tasty sauce, and a layer of cheese.
Both times that I’ve made this, I used leftover rotisserie chicken and deli ham. I just layered the chicken and then the ham in a 9″x 13″ pan. Then I covered the meats with the sauce mixed exactly to the recipe specifications. (Click on chicken cordon blue above for recipe link.) The final step is to top it off with Swiss cheese.
Since it’s just the two of us at our house, this made enough for at least three meals. I served it with steamed broccoli.
You should definitely try this! Jack and I both liked it a lot. If you’re wondering if it’s possible to eat high fat delicious food like this while losing weight and stabilizing blood sugars, we are both living proof that it is!
