The History of Chicken Cordon Bleu

Before we dive into the recipe, let's take a brief moment to explore the history of this iconic dish. Chicken Cordon Bleu is a popular French-inspired recipe that originated in Switzerland in the mid-20th century. Its name, which translates to 'Blue Ribbon Chicken,' suggests its association with excellence and prestige.

Traditionally, Chicken Cordon Bleu consists of a chicken breast wrapped around ham or prosciutto and cheese, then breaded and pan-fried until golden and crispy. Our gluten-free version maintains the same delicious flavors without compromising on taste or texture.


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 slices of gluten-free ham or prosciutto
  • 4 slices of Swiss cheese (or dairy-free alternative)
  • 1 cup gluten-free breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


Follow these step-by-step instructions to create the perfect gluten-free Chicken Cordon Bleu:

Step 1: Prepping the Chicken

Begin by taking the boneless, skinless chicken breasts and using a sharp knife, butterfly each breast by slicing horizontally almost all the way through, then open it like a book. You should have four thin chicken cutlets.

Step 2: Adding the Fillings

Place a slice of gluten-free ham or prosciutto on top of each chicken cutlet, followed by a slice of Swiss cheese. Carefully roll each cutlet, ensuring the filling is enclosed inside.

Step 3: Coating the Chicken

In a shallow dish, combine the gluten-free breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, paprika, garlic powder, dried parsley, salt, and pepper. Dip each chicken roll into the beaten eggs, then roll it in the breadcrumb mixture until evenly coated.

Step 4: Cooking the Chicken

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the breaded chicken rolls into the skillet and cook for about 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Ensure the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).

Step 5: Serving Suggestions

Once cooked, let the Chicken Cordon Bleu sit for a few minutes before slicing it into beautiful, mouthwatering portions. Serve it alongside a fresh salad, roasted vegetables, or even mashed cauliflower for a tasty low-carb alternative. Bon appétit!
