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
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.
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.
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. 🙂
