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. 🙂

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:

    Really good! I butterflied the chicken breasts and added my favorite seasonings to the meat as well. Otherwise, everything else was the exact same. This was delicious with a side of rice and corn on the cob.

  2. I used feta cheese along with the parmesan adds a nice balance, and I’ve even topped it off with crumbled cooked bacon sometimes. This is a great go to easy meal. I’ve served fresh spinach for the side, and wild grain rice! For bread I’ve used the pastry shell layers, into breadsticks, or crossiant rolls.

    One of my favorite dishes ever and very easy to make. Chicken is so juicy and everyone loves it. I pair it with mashed potatoes.

    1. Sure! You could use mozzarella cheese in place of the Swiss. You could use light mayo in place of regular, plain greek yogurt in place of the sour cream, and add salt to taste rather than a specific amount. Obviously these changes may alter the flavor of the dish, but should still yield a yummy dish with less fat/cholesterol than the original recipe. You could serve over brown rice or quinoa too for more nutritional benefits than white rice.
