3. Sheet Pan Keto Chicken Cordon Bleu with Cream Cheese

If a quick and easy dinner is what you’re looking for, this keto chicken cordon bleu with cream cheese is just the thing. I like how it’s incredibly tasty without compromising on good, wholesome ingredients.

From here, you’ll want to roll up each breast and then dredge them in a pre-prepared mix of almond flour, Parmesan cheese, and finely ground flaxseed meal. Finally, bake them on a baking sheet for 25-30 minutes and then you’re good to go.
