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:

    How does one not give your recipes 5 stars? Seriously, everything we try is so good. And this one so super easy and tasty. Exactly what our busy family needs.

    My son is a type one diabetic and this is such a good meal for him, and us!! We love this! My husband came home and said “wow, what smells so good?” 🥰

    This is so good that it has become a family favorite. Very easy to make. I make exactly as written. My only comment is to use a pan small enough for the chicken to fill it from side to side; too much open space lets the sauce dry out. Thanks.
