Gluten Free Skillet Chicken Cordon Bleu

This recipe was so good that I don't care that the photos are not up to par! I just had to share it with you guys!
I've been on a "skillet meal" kick lately. Mostly because it's just been so dang hot here in Florida. Our tiny little old house that heats up like an oven 95% of the time. So cooking meals on the stove is easier than running the oven and heating up the house even more.

I love anything by Skinny Taste! Her recipes are just genius! I put my own gluten free spin on this one and I will also share how you can make it dairy free as well!
Gluten Free Skillet Chicken Cordon Blue

Ingredients
3-4 thin boneless, skinless cutlets
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup all purpose gluten free flour (I use Bobs Red Mill)
1/2 teaspoon butter (I used earth balance)
 Olive oil
2/3 cup chicken broth
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
3-4 thin slices low sodium deli ham ( I don't eat pork so I used Turkey)
3-4 slices light Swiss Cheese

 Gluten Free Skillet Chicken Cordon Blue
Directions
Salt and pepper you chicken than lightly dredge the chicken with flour on both sides. Make sure to set aside 1 teaspoon of flour for the next part.

In another bowl combine chicken broth, lemon juice, dijon mustard and the teaspoon of flour. Whisk until smooth.

Heat up a large skillet, melt your butter and add a teaspoon of olive oil. Once melted add your chicken. Cook approximately 4 minuets on each side until slightly golden than transfer to a dish.

Reduce the heat and add you chicken broth mixture. Whisk and than simmer 2 minutes to reduce slightly.

Return the chicken and top with ham (or in my case turkey), and the swiss. 

Cover the skillet and let the cheese melt. About 3-4 minutes. 

Once melted you can top it with the sauce left in the pan! 

*To make this dish dairy free use a dairy free butter and top with a dairy free slice cheese. Go Veggie has some great options. *
