A delicious low carb chicken cordon bleu casserole that’s quick and easy. It’s the perfect meal solution for your family on busy evenings.
Can you believe the summer is just about over and the kids are heading back to school? It seems like the summer just flew by this year!
My youngest daughter will be starting preschool the first week in September. Although she could have started last winter after turning 3 years old, we didn’t feel she was ready because her birthday is in late December. We are hoping that the program will get her ready to start kindergarten next year.
I expect things to start getting really busy for us once our daughter starts school. When our older kids began preschool, it seems there was always something going on. There’s the frequent birthday parties, field trips, and volunteer work at the school. And to top it off, we are looking to get our daughter into some sport activities when she turns 4 in December.
With the busy school year starting, it’s time to get out those quick and easy dinner recipes. I came up with a low carb chicken cordon bleu casserole using convenient ingredients from Tyson Foods. It took me less than thirty minutes to bake and prepare this delicious casserole that looks and tastes like a gourmet meal.
To cut prep time, I used one package of Hillshire Farm® Farm Classics® Black Forest Ham Lunchmeat along with one bag of Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Pulled Chicken. I bought both products at a local Walmart Supercenter.
The ham was located in the open refrigerated section with all the other lunchmeat products. The chicken was with the other frozen chicken products in an upright freezer. I love that the meat is precooked which saves time in the kitchen when making this low carb chicken cordon bleu casserole.
The prep time for this easy low carb meal should take you less than five minutes. You’ll just need to combine all the ingredients into a mixing bowl. For this recipe, I mixed cream cheese with mayonnaise and heavy heavy cream first. Then, I added in some spices and parmesan cheese. Next, I stirred in ham, swiss cheese, frozen chicken, and chicken broth.
Once everything was well blended, I just spread it out into a 9×13-inch casserole dish. So easy! I say five minutes for the prep time, but you can easily do it in only 2-3 minutes.
I opted to top off the casserole with crushed pork rinds. You could use seasoned pork rinds if you already have some made. I find that storing crushed pork rinds in the freezer is not only convenient, but it also eliminates a lot of the pork taste. There’s a great recipe for seasoned low carb breadcrumbs made with pork rinds here.
Since the meat is precooked, it should only take 20-25 minutes for the chicken cordon bleu casserole to heat fully and begin to brown. With less than 30 minutes from start to finish, you won’t be stressing to feed your family during the busy back to school season.
My husband loves both ham and chicken. He’s a picky eater and hard to please. But, he was willing to give this low carb chicken cordon bleu casserole a try. I knew he would love it and he did eat it up without complaining.
Since this was a meal that my husband really enjoyed, I’ll be making it often. I have a hard time finding things that he likes to eat other than plain meats, pizza, and burgers. He’s not a low carb eater so when I find a dish low in carbs that he eats, I make it a regular.
My kids are pretty picky too. However, they were also won over by this low carb chicken cordon bleu casserole. The three year old loved all the cheese.
You get a lot of servings from this casserole and it’s packed with protein so a little goes a long way. It’s a nice dish to take with you for potluck gathering.
The leftovers also make wonderful quick meals later on in the week. I rarely buy lunch at work so I always try to make a dish that will have plenty of leftovers for the work week.
When grabbing all your essential school supplies at Walmart, be sure to stock up on low carb Tyson convenient foods. They are great to have on hand to make quick and easy meals for your family on busy days!
