How to Make Cream Cheese Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole
Making keto chicken cordon bleu in casserole form is easier than you think! Here’s what you need to do:
- Prep your ingredients. Chop up your chicken and ham, and measure out your liquid ingredients.
- Arrange your chicken and ham in the pan. Arranging them neatly will help them cook evenly.
- Layer the cheese on top of the chicken and ham. As it bakes, the cheese will melt all over the ham and chicken. Yum!
- Put a generous amount of sauce all over. This will help keep the chicken moist, while also serving as dipping sauce for some garlic bread or as a ‘gravy’ for some mashed cauliflower. More on that below!
- Wait for the cheese to brown. It’s more or less done once the cheese has started to brown and bubble.
While this keto chicken cordon bleu casserole is incredibly east to make, sometimes people find it makes too much food (if you’re only cooking for one person). This broccoli cheese stuffed chicken breast satisfies the same cravings, but can be scaled down to make much less food if you’re only looking for one meal.
What to Serve with Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole
Chicken, ham, cheese and a creamy sauce–this chicken cordon bleu casserole is already amazing on its own. However, I do enjoy pairing it with some of my keto-friendly side dishes just to keep it fun. Check them out:
- Keto Mashed Cauliflower – I love mashed cauliflower with everything, especially with dishes like this that have some sort of sauce or cheese that I can drizzle on top of the mashed cauliflower.
- Keto Roasted Cauliflower – For that yummy garlic flavor with a bit of crunch, I highly recommend pairing your chicken cordon bleu with keto roasted cauliflower.
- Keto Garlic Breadsticks – Garlic breadsticks can go with just about anything. Pair it with your chicken cordon bleu for a tasty yet filling side dish option. I like dipping the breadsticks in the cheese sauce of the casserole.

Can You Freeze This Keto Casserole?
Absolutely! This chicken cordon bleu casserole freezes very well.
I’ve tried freezing this in a plastic container and freezer-safe bags–both did a good job at keeping the casserole fresh for reheating at a later date. Be sure not to store it in a glass container as it could shatter once frozen.
When frozen, it can keep for 2 to 3 months.
