Casserole dinners are a weeknight win!
When you need to get a whole meal on the table without creating a mess of dishes in the sink, try out a casserole dinner. This keto Chicken Cordon Bleu casserole recipe brings together the savory flavors of chicken, sliced ham, and Swiss cheese. YUM!
But the real winner here? The sauce! 😋 It’s creamy with a kick from the Dijon mustard and really binds all the elements of this simple meal together. And just for fun, I’ve topped the whole spread with shredded parmesan cheese for an extra bit of flavor!

Delicious Chicken Cordon Bleu is converted into an easy weeknight keto casserole dish with layers of chicken, ham, and Swiss cheese.
- 4 cups cooked shredded chicken breast
- 1 cup parmesan cheese, divided
- 8-10 slices deli ham, cut into squares
- 1 cup sour cream
- 3-4 tablespoons Dijon mustard (if you are a fan of Dijon, bump it up to 4 tablespoons)
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
- 11 slices Swiss cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat a 13x9 casserole dish with oil to prevent sticking.
Add shredded chicken and 1/2 cup of shredded parmesan cheese to the 13x9 dish. Making sure to cover the dish completely.
In a large bowl, mix together sour cream, mustard, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and a pinch of salt & pepper to taste.
Spread the sour cream mixture over the shredded chicken. Add sliced deli ham on top of the spread. Top with sliced Swiss cheese covering the ham.
Top the layers with the remaining 1/2 cup of shredded parmesan cheese. If you like a crunch, you can add crushed pork rinds as well. Place in oven to bake for about 25 minutes.
Once browned and bubbling, remove from the oven. Slice, serve, and enjoy!

A few tips when making keto Chicken Cordon Bleu:
- Want to add a crunch to the topping? Try using crushed pork rinds or pork rind crumbs to add crispiness to the topping.
- Not a fan of pork rinds? Try adding bacon crumbles over top to add some crunch and saltiness.
- Needing a side dish? Serve with your favorite keto vegetables or even some cauliflower rice. Some steamed broccoli would add freshness and crunch to the dish as well!
This recipe is a huge hit for all — keto and non-keto alike!
This dish is quickly becoming a favorite in my household. After my family each had a serving, this dish is now a weekly request. But I’m not even mad about it since it’s ready in less than an hour, and I’m all for an easy dish! Hope your family feels the same. 🤗
My Hip sidekick gave this recipe a try and here’s what she thought!
“I really love this chicken cordon bleu casserole! So much flavor yet it’s so easy to make, and I used a rotisserie chicken to make it even easier. The sauce itself is such a great combination of flavors — I would definitely make it for my family again!”
I know it sounds silly but can I replace the Swiss cheese with another cheese? What would you guys suggest?
Hi there! You can replace it with any cheese you prefer. We have not tried it with provolone but its mellow flavor may go well with this dish. Mozzarella may be another good one. Enjoy❤
Can you make ahead and bake later?
I believe that would work! If you are adding the pork rinds for the crunch as suggested above, maybe wait to add those until you are ready to bake. Hope that helps!
I made this last night and it was soooooo good! I bought a rotisserie chicken and shredded it and substituted the Swiss for gouda and fontina I already had in the fridge. I was surprised that my non-keto husband even enjoyed it as much as I did! It was super easy to make and great for a quick, hot dinner. I will definitely be making this again! Thank you for the recipe, Ashley!
Hi Carmen! First off I love gouda so I bet the dish was delish with that substitution. Thanks so much for the sweet comment, I love hearing feedback on our dishes. You know it is a win when the non-keto family members enjoy it as well 🙂
That looks so good!
Hope you enjoy it if you decide to give it a try!
I made this but with uncooked chicken breast. It was so good!
Glad to hear that, Sara! Thanks for letting us know how yummy it turned out for you!
This came out REDICULOUSLY good! I would add a little lemon juice for more of a kick and possibly smoke the chicken on the bbq? Tonights test was costco rotisserie of course.
I’m so glad to hear that! Thanks for the tip on the lemon juice!
I didn’t have any garlic powder or Italian seasoning so substituted Flavorgod garlic lovers and ranch seasoning blends. Omg it’s so good. This will go in my meal rotation for sure. Thanks!
Sounds yummy, Alana! Glad you can add this to your regular menu! You’re SO welcome!
This was very good, and will be added to our rotation. I ended up putting in some leftover cauliflower rice that I needed to use up.
Great idea! Happy you enjoyed it! Thanks so much for commenting!
