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:

    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.

    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! 🙂

    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.
