One-Pot Chicken Cordon Bleu Soup — The Skinny Fork by Gordon Ramsay

One-Pot Chicken Cordon Bleu Soup — The Skinny Fork

This is a ‘creamy’ soup that’s made with NO cream at all. I kept it light by using an unsweetened almond milk and a roux to get that creamy texture that we all know and love in a good comforting soup. With that I used some cooked and shredded chicken breast, ham, some veggies, and plenty of seasonings.

The dijon in there is just enough to give the subtle hint of the flavor. That along with the shredded Swiss cheese on top and you’ve got a delicious Chicken Cordon Bleu in a bowl! One of my favorite parts about this soup though, is that it’s made all in one pot, making clean up a breeze.

Store leftovers covered in the fridge for 3-5 days. Reheat and enjoy all over again!

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set it aside.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and 3 tbsps. sugar (or sweetener) until well blended. 

Add in the butter until the mixture resembles the grainy texture of cornmeal. 

I used the whisk attachment on my stand mixture on a medium speed until the right consistency was reached. But you could also use the back of a knife or maybe even a food processor.

Add in the milk, greek yogurt, and egg.  Combine together until a smooth dough has formed.

Finally, toss in the strawberries and fold into the dough. You don’t want to mix too thoroughly or the dough will turn pink!

Yes, the dough will be very wet and sticky. 

Scoop the dough out onto a well floured surface.

Coat your hands with flour and knead the dough, adding in a bit more flour until the dough is still soft, but easier to work with. 

Form the dough into a ball and place it onto the prepared baking sheet. Pat it down with your hands into a half inch hall circle. 

Lightly flour the surface of the dough and a knife. Carefully cut the dough into 12 wedges (as best you can.) 

Sprinkle on the remaining sugar (or sweetener.)

Place in the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the edges are turning golden brown and the middle is set. 

Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly.

Cut and serve warm with jam, cream and some tea!

Chickpea Tikka Masala — The Skinny Fork by Gordon Ramsay

Chickpea Tikka Masala — The Skinny Fork

Let’s face it, we’re all suddenly a lot more influenced by a ‘beans and rice’ diet. Pantry cooking can be tricky, but it can also save time, money, and still be pretty damn healthy for you. This Chickpea Tikka Masala is a one pot dish that cooks up in just about 30 minutes. It’s gluten free, vegan, and vegetarian. Plus, like I said, one pan to cook it all means less mess to clean up in the end.

Chickpeas are a favorite among my family as it is. Seriously… there’s a few of us that would eat the things straight of the can if someone would let us. So, I try to use them as much as I can. And they work out really well in vegetarian dishes.
