Guest blog: Kris's Gluten Free Cordon Bleu

Hopefully I will have a whole host of guest blogs on here at some point or another, today its my Fiance's turn to show us what she is made of.

Kris: One of my favorite dishes is Cordon Bleu but due to Chris having a Gluten Intolerance I can't use bread crumbs or flour, also we are trying to keep the carbs on the lower side so I added a bacon wrap to the recipe to give it a crunchy coating, I used smoked bacon to add flavor to the dish and I used a cream cheese and chive stuffing for the chicken.

Serves 2

  • 2 Whole chicken breast fillets
  • 100 Grams full fat cream cheese (Philadelphia will work)
  • 1 Table spoon chopped chives (fresh preferably)
  • 2 Bulbs, finely chopped garlic
  • 4 pieces of smoked bacon (any veriaty/cut)
  • Olive oil for brushing
To Cook:
  1. Pre heat oven to 180C.
  2. Make a pocket in the middle of each chicken breast.
  3. Mix the chives, garlic and cream cheese and spoon into each breast fillet.
  4. Wrap each chicken breast with 2 slices of bacon and then brush with a little olive oil.
  5. Place into a baking tray or dish and cook for 20-30 mins depending on the oven.
  6. Serve and enjoy.

Chris: I really enjoyed this, I suggested to Chris to combine with a basic garden salad with some grated carrot and radish and spice it up plus a very basic dressing. the ingredients are below.

Spicy Sweet Garden Salad

  • 1/2 Cucumber sliced into medallions
  • 3 Whole tomatoes chopped into slices
  • A bag of mixed leaf salad including rocket (we got ours from the farmers market)
  • 1 Small Carrot grated
  • 2-3 Radishes grated and 1 for garnish chopped
  • 2-3 Table spoons of olive oil
  • 1/2 Tea spoon of salt
  • 1/2 Tea spoon of freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 Juice of lemon
