Creamy Chicken Bake
I love easy dinner recipes! They are my favorite!! They are the ones I rely on almost every day so that I can actually get my husband and kids fed quickly and without a ton of stress.
This next recipe happens to be one of those kinds of recipes that we love – easy, delicious and quick. We have always loved chicken and were so glad to find this creamy, Swiss Chicken Bake (aka Mayonnaise Chicken or Sour Cream Chicken).
This recipe has a lot of different names, but it’s a chicken bake that takes just a few minutes to prep. The result is phenomenal and one that we love to have and serve with noodles or rice.
We do tend to eat tons of chicken in our home, so if you like chicken too and like an easy recipe, you should definitely give this Creamy Swiss Chicken Bake a try. 🙂
How to Make Swiss Chicken bake
This recipe is beyond easy, and you’ll see why. To make it, preheat the oven to 375. Pat dry your chicken and place in a greased 9×13 dish. Add sliced swiss cheese on top of each breast.
In a bowl, mix mayonnaise, sour cream, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Spread this over the chicken and sprinkle the remaining grated Parmesan cheese on top.
Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour and serve alone or over rice/noodles.
Storing Tips + FAQ
How to store mayonnaise chicken? Place in an air-tight container and place in the fridge for up to 4 days. To reheat, we recommend just heating in the microwave until heated through.
Can you use light ingredients in this recipe? To cut back on calories, you can definitely use the light dairy products (light Swiss cheese, light mayo, light sour cream). We do this all the time and think the swiss chicken still tastes great.
Can you substitute for mayo in this recipe? Yes, you can. Do this by adding more sour cream or adding plain yogurt instead of the mayonnaise.
What to Serve with Swiss Chicken? The options are endless, but here are some of our favs:
The flavors of chicken, sour cream and a bit of cheese (Swiss and Parmesan) make this recipe oh-so-delicious! I love that it can be thrown in the oven and can be done in an hour. 🙂

I made this with chicken tenders in a 5 x 7 rectangular dish. I used shredded parmesan. I found a recipe online that added a package of onion soup to the mayo and sour cream. I added that – no other spices except parika on the top. Baked 25 minutes and about 2 minutes under broiler. Husband loved it.
Really liked the flavor and ease of prep but the sauce broke, it was curdled, don’t know why.
This was delicious, however, 1 hour was way too long and my chicken breast were big!
This is one of my favorites.
You get major brownie points! This is a great recipe and easy to modify for individual taste. You are so kind and patient to all the folks with lame criticisms, like it is your fault that it didn’t come out exactly like your drool-worthy picture. Cooking is an art and some people are not talented in the kitchen. I get creative based on what I have but this is so good just as you have shared.
Happy thoughts! 🙂
This receipt was amazing! So easy to prepare and quick.
I stayed close to the recipe. Only difference was I put seasoned salt on my chicken before I put on the Swiss cheese. I didn’t taste the Swiss cheese. The parmesan cheese in the sauce really shone through.
Still it was simple and delicious and I’ll make it again sometime.
Am making this tonight! Can I use frozen chicken breasts?!
This was on of the best chicken recipes that I ever made.
This recipe has been the favorite of my family and friends. If the sauce loom cuddled it is still delicious. I make extra sauce because we love the sauce over buttered egg noodles. I have made this recipe for a group of 30 people and I’m always asked for the recipe.
I made this and the family loved it, so now we have it often. I do double the sauce though and skip the salt. It’s sooo delicious! So quick and easy too! Thanks for the recipe! An hour in the oven and it was perfect.
You’re welcome! I’m so glad that you enjoy the recipe!!
This is a WINNER!
So easy even my husband can make it. We made baked potatoes with the chicken. Along witĥ a veg/salad and done. No stove to clean.
Easy to make and the family was impressed with the yummy results.
Happy the family liked it!! Thanks for trying it!
this one looks sooo good over mashed potatoes….thank you!
Oh, it is!! Thank you!
I loved the easy way to change up baked chicken and will use this recipe often.
I’m so glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thanks for commenting!
Made this tonight. ABSOLUTLEY delicious!!
This recipe is fantastic! I cooked it for about 35 minutes. My family and I absolutely loved it – thank you!
You’re welcome! I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed the recipe!
Wow this was.sooo easy and good. I stayed pretty close to the recipe but l added a little bit of that Montreal Chicken Seasoning to the chicken and it made the flavor absolutely pop. My husband doesn’t really like swiss cheese or sour cream, but he could barely tell at all. We both loved it.
We all love this recipe, definitely a keeper and company worthy!
