IIFYM "If It Fit Your Macros"

Low Carb Chicken Cordon Bleu

Ingredients:

6 whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts
6 extra lean ham
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
salt & pepper

Preparation:

Place a sheet of wax paper on cutting board and slice each chicken breast down the middle. Using a meat tenderizer pound each chicken breast as flat as uniformly possible.   Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and black pepper.

Place a slice of ham on each chicken breast, overlapping slices as needed.

At this point you can add the cheese but since my husband is lactose intolerant I don’t, but for the rest of us I put the cheese on top of the chicken after it’s fully cooked.

Fold chicken breast and season the top and bottom with garlic powder, salt and black pepper.

In a large non stick fry pan place chicken and cook on low, cover, for 20 minutues, remove cover and cook until chicken is golden brown.

When serving sprinkle on top with shredded mozzarella cheese, served with broccoli and salad.
