The easiest recipe for Gluten-Free Chicken Cordon Bleu because it is made into a casserole. This casserole is based on the classic French chicken cordon bleu recipe, but without gluten and for simplicity, it is made into a casserole.

To make this easier version of gluten-free chicken cordon bleu is simple. The tender chicken breast is layered with black forest ham, Swiss cheese and basil. Then, the casserole is baked in a creamy garlic sauce. The recipe is easy enough to appeal even for the novice cook.

What I love about this chicken cordon bleu recipe is, there is no frying of the chicken, making this dish healthier and lower in fats and calories.

Chicken cordon bleu goes exceptionally well with mashed potatoes, steamed veggies and a light green salad. Another recipe you may enjoy is the gluten-free chicken schnitzel bites. If you are following a plant based diet you will enjoy the gluten-free vegan schnitzel.
