Total Time 60 minutes

Prep Time 20 minutes

Cook Time 40 minutes

Yield 12

Number Of Ingredients 8

3 large eggs (separated, at room temperature)
3 large egg whites (at room temperature)
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
pinch fine sea salt
2 cups almond flour or almond meal ((200 grams))
1 cup mixed berries
powdered sugar (for dusting (optional))

Steps:

  • Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease a 9-inch spring form pan with nonstick spray, line with parchment paper, and flour (use almond meal or a gluten-free all purpose flour blend to keep the cake gluten-free).
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and all but 2 tbsp of the sugar.  Whisk until the yolks become thick and pale in color, about 1 minute. Whisk in the vanilla extract and the salt and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a standard electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment (or a bowl with a hand mixer), beat the 6 egg whites on medium speed until they become opaque, about 1 minute.
  • Sprinkle in the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar, and continue to beat the egg whites until they hold medium peaks.
  • With a flexible rubber spatula, stir in about 1/4 of the egg whites to the egg yolk mixture (no need to be gentle here).  Scrape the remaining egg whites over the yolks, and about half of the almond flour.
  • Gently fold them into the yolks, but only partially.
  • While the mixture still has a few streaks of white left, add the remaining almond flour and fold in, folding until you have a homogeneous batter.  Be gentle!
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and shimmy until the batter is level.
  • Bake the cake for about 35 minutes, until the top is golden brown and springy to the touch. Let the hot cake cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes, then run a butter knife along the edges of the cake pan.
  • Invert the cake pan onto the rack, remove the sides and bottom, and peel away the parchment paper. Turn the cake right side up and allow to cool completely. Dust with powdered sugar, cut into 12 slices and serve with fresh berries.

EASY SKILLET CHICKEN CORDON BLEU – NO ROLLING! - SKINNYTASTE



EASY Skillet Chicken Cordon Bleu – No Rolling! - Skinnytaste image

I love making Chicken Cordon Bleu which I usually bread, roll and bake. But I wanted something quick with the same ingredients and came up with this – lazy chicken cordon bleu made all in one skillet. This is great with roasted veggies or you can serve this with rice pilaf.

Total Time 25 minutes

Prep Time 10 minutes

Cook Time 15 minutes

Yield 4

Number Of Ingredients 12

4 thin boneless (skinless cutlets, 4 oz each)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup all purpose flour*
1/2 teaspoon butter
1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
2/3 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
4 thin slices low sodium deli ham (I use Boar’s Head (3 oz total))
4 slices light Swiss Cheese such as Alpine Lace (3 oz total)
chopped fresh parsley (for garnish)
* All purpose gluten-free flour works well here.

Steps:

  • Season chicken with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Place the flour in a shallow dish. Lightly dredge the chicken with flour on both sides, shaking off the excess reserving the flour.
  • In a small bowl combine the chicken broth, lemon juice, Dijon mustard and 1 teaspoon of the reserved flour, whisk until smooth.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Melt the butter and add 1 teaspoon of the olive oil and half of the chicken.
  • Cook 2 minutes on each side, until slightly golden, then transfer to a dish.
  • Add remaining 1/2 teaspoon olive oil and remaining chicken and cook 2 minutes on each side.
  • Set aside on a dish with the other pieces of chicken.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low, add the chicken broth mixture. Whisk scraping up any bits stuck to the pan then simmer 2 minutes to reduce slightly.
  • Return the chicken to the skillet, top each piece with a slice of ham and a slice of swiss, cover the skillet and simmer medium-low for 3 to 4 minutes until the cheese melts.
  • To serve use a spatula and transfer the chicken to each dish, spoon the remaining sauce over each piece.
