Chicken Cordon Bleu w/Parmasean Sauce

Well, we have gotten really tired of the same old grilled chicken breast, so I tried to do something more exciting with chicken today.  This recipe is actually pretty simple and tastes amazing.  I served it up with some cheesy cauliflower and some sugar snap peas.

4 large chicken breasts
4 slices of low carb ham (no sugar)
1 cup of shredded sharp cheddar
Salt, pepper, garlic powder, fajita seasoning
12 toothpicks

Parmasean Sauce (for topping)
1 Tbsp full fat low carb yogurt
1 Tbsp sour cream
1 Tbsp grated parmasean cheese
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degF. Place chicken in a ziplock bag and seal.  Flatten to 1/4" thick with a kitchen hammer or just a large can of food. Remove from bag and season both sides.  Place slice of ham and some cheese covering half of each breast.  Fold chicken over and pin together with three toothpicks.  Top with a spoonful of the parmasean sauce and spread over top of chicken.  Place on greased baking sheet and bake for 30 to 45 min or until chicken is cooked completely.  Time will vary based on chicken size.

Approx. 2 to 3 Carbs per chicken breast.
