Ingredients

  • Avocado oil spray
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 4 small boneless skinless chicken breasts, 6-7 oz each
  • 1/2 teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup almond meal (4 oz)
  • 8 thin slices ham
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking dish with foil, fit it with a wire rack and spray the rack with oil.
  • In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise and Dijon mustard.
  • Season the chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper. Brush on all sides with the Dijon mixture. Dredge in the almond meal, and place on the prepared wire rack. Spray with oil.
  • Bake, uncovered, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads 165 degrees F, about 20 minutes.
  • Top each chicken breast with two slices of ham (folded in two if necessary) and a slice of Swiss cheese.
  • Return to the hot oven for 2-3 minutes, just until the cheese melts. Garnish with chopped parsley. Allow to rest 5 minutes before serving.
