    Celiac.com 04/19/2017 - Love Chicken Corden Bleu, but can't find a great gluten-free version? This recipe uses oatmeal and amaranth to create a lovely breading for chicken breasts stuffed with ham and cheese. They are low calorie, reasonably healthy, and certainly delicious.

    Ingredients:

    • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
    • 6 slices Swiss cheese
    • 4 slices cooked ham
    • 1 egg
    • 1 egg white
    • 2 tablespoons oat flour, for dredging
    • ⅓ cup gluten-free oats, lightly ground
    • ⅓ cup amaranth
    • ¼ teaspoon parsley flakes (crushed)
    • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
    • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
    • ¼ teaspoon sugar
    • ¼ teaspoon oregano
    • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning, crushed
    • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper (divided)
    • ½ teaspoon salt (divided)
    • butter, to coat pan

    Directions:
    Heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

    Lightly coat baking dish with butter.

    Pound chicken breasts to about ¼ inch thickness.

    Sprinkle each piece of chicken on both sides with salt and pepper.

    Place 1 cheese slice and 1 ham slice on top of each breast.

    Roll up each breast, and secure with a toothpick.

    Season oat flour with a dash of salt & pepper in one bowl.

    Beat egg and egg white in another bowl.

    In a mixing bowl, combine salt, pepper, ground oatmeal, amaranth, sugar, other spices.

    Maintaining the roll form, carefully dredge the chicken roll-up through the oat flour, egg mixture and crumbs coating.

    Place in baking dish, and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until crispy and cooked through.

    Remove from oven, and place ½ cheese slice on top of each breast.

    Return to oven for 3 to 5 minutes, or until cheese has melted.

    Remove toothpicks, and allow to cool slightly, until cool enough to touch, but still warm.

    Cut rolls into pinwheels and serve.
