Carnivore chicken cordon bleu recipe

Updated: Mar 7

Cheesy stuffed chicken breast with a crispy outside and served with a Dijon cream sauce. You'll feel like you're eating something fancy, but this recipe is affordable and so easy to make! Plus its carnivore approved.

This recipe is low carb, keto, carnivore, and kid approved. This was my first time making chicken cordon bleu, and I was pleasantly surprised by how tasty this was! The breading gets really crispy in the air fryer. If you don't have an air fryer the oven works too! If you are a strict carnivore or don't use spices you can leave the Italian seasoning out. I highly recommend the sauce, it really helps to tie the dish together and its packed full of flavor!

carnivore chicken cordon bleu


  • 24 oz Boneless skinless chicken breasts

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 6 Slices Swiss cheese

  • 12 slices of deli ham

  • 2 Eggs beaten

  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated

  • 1/2 cup Pork rind crumbs

  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning - optional


  • 1 cup Heavy cream

  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated

  • 1-2 tbsp Dijon mustard to taste

  • 1/4 tsp Sea salt

  • 1/4 tsp Pepper

  • 2 tbsp Butter


  1. Preheat air fryer to 400F.

  2. In a bowl stir together the Parmesan cheese, pork rind crumbs, and Italian seasoning. Set aside.

  3. Beat the eggs in a shallow bowl. Set aside.

  4. Place the chicken in a zip top bag and using a meat mallet or rolling pin, pound to 1/4 inch thickness. Season on both sides with salt and pepper to taste.

  5. Top the chicken with 1 slice of Swiss cheese and 1-2 slices of ham. Then roll the chicken up and secure with toothpicks.

  6. Dip the chicken in the eggs and then coat with the pork rind breading.

  7. Cook in the air fryer for 15 minutes flipping half way through. While the chicken is cooking, add all of the sauce ingredients to a small sauce pan. Cook the sauce to a low simmer and let it reduce to slightly thicken. Top with sauce and enjoy!
