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. 🙂

Oh yum! Thank you for sharing.
Well doesn’t that look like the perfect dinner! YUM!
Oh my…I can’t wait to try this recipe. We eat chicken almost every day and I’m always looking for new recipes. My family loves your parmesan crusted zucchini recipe!! Thanks so much for this yummy recipe!!
I think your fam will LOVE this recipe. We’ve made it 3 times in the last few weeks… it’s so good and SO easy!! 🙂
This was such a wonderfully simple fast recipe to make……
I am so glad you thought so 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing that!
I need that one
I’m not a huge fan of the taste of mayo, and don’t normally have it on hand. Ideas for a substitution? (“Just suck it up and deal with it” is also an appropriate response). 🙂
I think a plain greek yogurt or vanilla yogurt would work too! 😀
Looks yummy, but my cheese slipped off the chicken.
How about miracle whip?
I haven’t tried it, but you most definitely could! Thanks for stopping by!
It is in the oven now. I’ll let you know what my family thinks.
Soy mayo maybe?
I made this yesterday using boneless, skinless chicken thighs and it was moist and delicious! Thanks for sharing!
Did you cook the thighs for an hour?
Lea, I c
Lea, I cooked them for about 45 minutes, then checked if they were done and cooked about 10 minutes longer.
I was thinking the same thing. I was wondering if softened cream cheese would work.
I didn’t have mayo either, found that it was fine without. We found it quite salty, even without the added salt – must have been the cheese.
Google “what can I substitute may with” and it will give you a list of items. I don’t like sour cream but this recipe calls for it and I subbed buttermilk and it turned out pretty good. I do like mayo but I would cut it down to about a 1/4 cup instead of half a cup because it is still a little strong.
I ALWAYS sub mayo with sour cream……my husband HATES MAYO.
That works! Thank you for sharing that 🙂
Do you think that this would work as a crock pot meal? I don’t want to heat up my house if I don’t have to.
I’ve never tried to do it as a crockpot recipe, but it’s worth a try. If you do give it a go, let me know how it turns out. 😉
I have made this is a slowcooker witih chicken broth. turns out great.
Are you sure this takes a whole hour for pounded down breasts?
You can definitely play with the baking time. I honestly prefer checking the temperature of the chicken to see if it’s done rather than go off an exact time amount. Once the chicken is 165 degrees internally, it’s fully cooked. Then let it rest for a few minutes before serving. Every oven is a little different, so baking time could be less. I’d just keep an eye on it.
Do you cook it covered on uncovered?
Thanks! I am a Swiss lover and really liked this. I made it with this side, which was also amazing and the bake (I baked it instead of grilling) times coincided wonderfully: http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/11018/hot-dressed-sweet-potato-fennel-and-feta-parcels
SO glad you liked it. And I’ll have to try the recipe you linked to – looks delish!
Looks good! Do you bake it covered or uncovered?
Uncovered. 🙂 Let me know how it goes if you give it a try… would love to hear!
Just wondering….do you use full chicken breasts or do you cut them in half to have them thinner? Does this question make sense? 🙂 thanks ?
I personally use the whole chicken breast, but you can cut them in half, you could use tenders, whatever you prefer 🙂 Hope you like it!
I am confused. The swiss goes on first, then the mayo mix? Seems like you would be preventing all that flavor from reaching the chicken… If the mayo goes on and then topped with swiss… Then the flavor gets baked into chicken…. Help…
I was wondering the same thing!
I would think as the cheese melts they all become the same ‘substance’. That cheese is going to melt fairly quick once you pop the dish in the oven. So, I’d think it all should meld together.
Hannah’s right… it all gets on the chicken and baking for an hour with the cheese on top would most likely burn it. Let me know if you give it a try… I think you’ll like it! 😉
My guess is it’s kinda the same as parm crusted chicken recipe that I’ve made before (just mayo and parm cheese) where when baking gives the chicken a crusted top, not a creamy sauce. The swiss cheese is probably what makes it creamy so it makes since to put the mayo mix on top of everything. ….it crusts the dish.if that makes sense. …lol
I’m all geared up to make this today. I’m half way there with prep, and Basmati Rice is done. The only tweek I think I’ll do is add some panko crumbs to the topping. My side is the medium size portobello mushrooms, quartered and sauteed with coarse black pepper and garlic powder.
Came here to see if you cooked covered or uncovered. Thank GAWD for the internet, heh??
Oooooh, Panko Crumbs would be a GREAT addition!! Will totally try that next time. 🙂 And you bake uncovered. 😉
Do you taste the mayo and sour cream because my husband doesn’t like either one and I really want to try this
My hubby isn’t a huge fan either, but he loves it. If he REALLY doesn’t like it I suggest halving both the mayo and sour cream. 😉
I’d say no to Judee’s question. You really can’t tell what the wonderful ‘sauce’ is. It just tastes “savory” and rich – but not too rich. Just make it and don’t tell him what the ingredients are. 😀
Brown, bubbly, melted cheese, I think it should be a food group all it’s own!! This looks wonderful, going to try it out for Sunday dinner with the kids this weekend 🙂
My chicken is not baking thoroughly and the mixture has slid off of the chicken into the pan.
I have added 10 minutes onto the time, but it is just now starting to brown. Any suggestions?
Did you follow the directions exactly? We’ve made this twice in the last few weeks and haven’t had issues. Maybe one thing is we had several chicken breast in the pan so there wasn’t really room for it to fall off.
I put it under broiler for 3 minutes to help it be golden brown
like your pictures. It was baked through after 1 hour but I wanted
the top to be brown like yours and it was not. After being under
the broiler it was fine and it was delicious. I will be sure to add all four chicken
breasts to the pan and not worry about them touching each other next time.
The amount of pepper is listed as ” 1/tsp.” Is this supposed to be 1 tsp or is it supposed to be a fraction such as 1/2 or 1/4?
Just fixed… it’s suppose to be 1/2 tsp. pepper. Thanks for the heads up!
This is my favorite way to cook chicken. I always put the mixture straight onto the chicken and the swiss cheese on top. I have never had a problem with it burning the top of the cheese. The only change I make to the ingredients is that I used plain greek yogurt instead of sour cream, but I’ve made it both ways and they’re both absolutely delicious!
All lovely chicken recipes. Thank you.
Hi Kristyn, I made this for dinner a couple of weeks ago and it was a big hit at my house. Today my husband requested it for dinner tonight, so guess what we’re having, yup this recipe again. Thank you so much for sharing all of your wonderful recipes !!! Have a great day 🙂
Hi Esther! Thank you so much for stopping by! I’m so glad the hubby liked it!! We actually had it last week too… for me it’s just one of those delicious and easy recipes that everyone loves so we make it pretty often. 😉 Hope you can find more recipes on the site that you love just as much. 😉
This recipe sounds great, I was in the middle of preparing it and realized I had no sour cream. Is there something else I can use or no?
Love your recipes. My question is about the buttery baked chicken, you say to cook for 90 minuets. Isn’t that too long for chicken breasts?
Do you season the chicken before? With salt and pepper?
Nope… you add the seasoning with the mayonnaise and other creamy mixture. 😉
I added cooked mushrooms to the sauce. Delicious!
Ooooh – a great idea for any mushroom lover. 😉 Thanks for stopping by!
Can you taste the mayo in this. My husband and one of my boys don’t like it>
I can’t, and my hubby isn’t a fan of mayo and he’s never complained about it. 😉
Hi! Very much looking forward to making this tonight on a cozy October night! Taste-wise, do you think I could add a slice of ham between the chicken and the Swiss to give it a cordon bleu kind of feel, or would that be too much for the pallet? Thanks in advance!
I added a ham layer the 2nd time I made it and it was delicious!
Ham would be a great addition – will have to try that next time!! 😀
Can you combine the swiss and mozz. cheeses like 1/2 of each cheese or would that not work too well? Have you tried this with just mozz.?
well, gonna have to sub the swiss for moz. and making this tomorrow. My daughter hates swiss cheese:(
Mozzarella will be great too! I’ve used it for this recipe when we’ve been out of Swiss. 🙂
Absolutely Delicious! Making this for the second time in a week!!!
I just want to let you know I LOVE THIS RECIPE!!!!! I’ve had it like 5 times in the past month! Sooo good and super easy! THANK YOU!
SAME!! It’s one of my go-to recipes. SO glad you like it!!
for the creamy Swiss chicken do I need to season the chicken or no
Nope – the cheese and sour cream/mayonnaise mixture give it all the seasoning it needs. 😉
I have Havarti on hand. Do you think that would work well with the recipe?
If I’m making two breasts, do I cut the ingredients in half?
Also, how long would I cook it for?
Can this be done just putting frozen chicken breasts to cook or do they need to be thawed?
Just made this with the ingredients I had on hand: used pepper jack slices on bottom, smeared on sour cream and mayo (the epitome of laziness…), sprinkled on garlic powder, chili powder, and cayenne, then topped with shredded mozzarella and finally some fresh shredded asiago. Absolutely delightful. The toppings did slide off somewhat because I only did 3 breasts in the pan but it browned nicely. Thanks for the amazing recipe (even if I did butcher it with my shortcuts)! Can’t wait to try it with Swiss and Parmesan!
Ooooh – your version sounds amazing!! It’s so easy to change up and to throw things on. So glad you guys liked it! 😀
Made this last night for the family and it was a hit!! Thank you for sharing!
I love your chicken recipes!! I can’t wait to try this one 🙂
Did anyone else have a problem with the cream sauce curdling? It still tastes delicious but if you’re a texture person like me it cab be unpleasant. I looked online and apparently sour cream is not supposed to be in boiling dishes. Any tips to prevent this for next time?
mine curdles EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I’ve made this dish like 7 times in the past 6 months and I have no idea why it curdles. The flavor is still great and my husband loves it. But I hate how ugly the curdle is!
Mine too. I tried adding a bit of cornflour to the sauce mix but it didn’t help. We have made this several times and all love it. It tastes divine… but I’d live to make it for guests and need to figure out how to fix the curdling/splitting sauce problem first. Anyone able to help?
I haven’t made it in a while but I was able to have way less curdle and I think it was when I let the sour cream and mayo mixture come to room temp before baking
Thanks will try that next time.
I made this for dinner tonight and the only complaint was that there wasn’t enough. It was absolutely delicious and simple to make. Thank you!
LOVE IT!!! This recipe is definitely a favorite and is so simple to make. I hope it can become a family favorite. Thanks for stopping by! 😀
i only have chickens thighs on hand but all of the other ingredients, do you think it’ll turn out with the same results?
It turned out amazing some of the best baked chicken I’ve ever had!
In the oven now. I used mozzarella cheese and added a lil spice to the mayo mix. Used ff sour cream and low fat/light “mayo spread, as I don’t care for either ingredient. But I bet it makes the chicken so moist. Can’t wait to try it!
Can this be made the day before serving?
Yes it can! Just keep it in the refrigerator until you are ready to heat and serve.
i made this last night for dinner and it was amazing! Unfortunately I overcooked the chicken a little which made it tough, but it still tasted great! The sauce does curdle as some people mentioned, but it doesn’t affect the taste or consistency of the dish. I can’t wait to try this again. It was pretty easy too, which is always a plus, and would be a great meal to serve company.
Making it tonight for supper. Added a few pieces of bacon ??
Great idea!! Hope you like it!
Made this last night, everyone loved the flavors. Most of my family doesn’t like mayo but when baked you really can’t taste it. The only thing that I will change next time is to decrease the temp to 350 and the cook time to 30 minutes or until done. The chicken was a little dry, but the flavor was amazing. Definitely a recipe to keep.
This was so good! It doesn’t matter if the sauce curdles a bit. Just mix it around and it’s fine. Will definitely make again since it was so yummy and very easy!
Wanted to tell you we have made this twice in two weeks – it is our new favorite! And so filling – just half a breast over rice fills me up! The only thing I do different is I butterfly the chicken and tuck the swiss cheese inside. (And I use veganaise instead of mayo since mayo makes us sick – but the taste is identical)
Yummy! I’m going to make this soon! But I was wanting to replace greek yogurt for either the mayonnaise or the sour cream to make it healthier. If I replaced the mayonnaise with greek yogurt, would that take away from the flavor? Or should I replace the sour cream instead? Thanka!
I think I would replace the sour cream and then maybe use a light mayo. Let me know how it turns out and I can add these substitutes to the recipe for others who want a healthier version. 😉
Thank you for the quick reply! I will try your suggestion and will let you know how it turns out. =) I am a new mom and cook and I have a fear of handling raw chicken so this recipe is perfect for me! I don’t even have to cut it up. Thank you! =D
I made this last night for my boyfriend. Followed the directions exactly except I substituted mozzarella cheese. When finished the sauce was not creamy, it was oily and thin like it broke down while baking. Is this how it is supposed to come out? I expected creamy like a bechamel in texture. It tasted great, just wasnt what I expected…
Mine came out like that as well. I used Swiss and it literally disintegrated in a pool. Not sure what went wrong. It tasted great. Appearance was off-putting.
This is my favorite chicken dish! I make it just like the recipe above but add bread crumbs to the top. I will on occasion half the sour cream and mayo & substitute 1/2 c Greek yogurt to make a bit healthier & cannot taste the difference. Thanks for sharing this! It’s in my weekly rotation.
I’m so glad you like it, Amanda! We make it at least once a month too and had it for Easter along with our ham. I need to be better about using yogurt too since I know it’s healthier… it’s just mayo and sour cream is SO good!! ;D
This is the most meltinyourmouth baked chicken recipe I have ever tried. I commonly adapt other recipes using this coating method now. No egg dredge anymore. ..More work and lesser outcome. Boyfriend was floored by this dish.
Love to hear that! Thank you 🙂
I was wondering if you could use frozen chicken?
I definitely recommend letting the chicken thaw first before cooking. 😉
I love the Swiss Cheese Chicken recipe. Thank you Kristyn and have a great Wednesday!
YAY! So glad you like it. 😉
Please send this recipe to my e-mail. I can’t seem to get it from Facebook.It looks wonderful!
Did you get the recipe?
This came out Great. My husband doesn’t like chicken, sour cream or Mayonnaise but I knew the Swiss cheese and parmigiana would mask the taste of them. And as much as I don’t like changing a recipe the first time I make it I couldn’t resist putting sliced baby Bella’s under the Swiss cheese. My hubby likes everything well done pretty close to burned yet it still was moist. He loved it and said I could make it again.
YAY!! So glad he liked it and that you were able to mask the taste of the sour cream and mayo!
I made for dinner and it was awesome. My daughter asked if we could have it again.
Hi – I just stumbled upon this recipe and it looks great, and so easy.
Years (and years and years!) ago, a friend’s mom gave a similar simple “recipe” that we have always used. It’s the same concept but it is chicken layered with chopped spinach and feta cheese… layer and bake – and eat!
Sounds and looks delicious. Does it need to be covered while it bakes? Thanks.
I made this tonight, Followed reciepe exact, And this was delicious! Everyone in my family, including the kiddos, loved it! Thanks for the reciepe, I definitely will be making this a lot!
YAY!! I’m SO happy to hear that, Tracy!! Thanks for taking the time to comment and let me know it was a hit. I hope you can find other recipes here on the site that you like. 🙂 Have a great day!!
Made this a few weeks ago for our family and another, huge hit, even with the kiddos!! Making it again tonight, but turning it into a casserole using cooked, shredded chicken and egg noddles, just mixing all ingredients together, very excited to see how it turns out!!
How did this turn out?? 😉
I used 1/2 c sour cream and 1/2 c plain Greek yogurt along with the rest of the ingredients as listed and cooked for 1 hour at 375*. Unfortunately there wasn’t a creamy sauce, but rather a lot of liquid in the bottom of the pan, the sour cream/yogurt mixture curdled and the chicken was dried out. The flavor was still great though, and I will try it again at a lower temp, but wondering if you think that will keep the sour cream/yogurt mixture from curdling. Thanks!
I usually only make this with sour cream and mayo, and am not sure why it’s curdling so much. I would try putting the mixture on first and then the slice of cheese to maybe keep it from falling off the kitchen. 😉
Looks delicious! I accidentally bought 2 packages of swiss cheese and this will really help me use it quickly and ensure it doesn’t go bad. With the parm cheese, should I use the kind in the green canister or should I be using fresh? Thanks! Can’t wait to try it.
In the green can. 🙂 Hope you guys like the recipe. 😀
This recipe really is so easy and tasty. I added a layer of deli ham to make it Cordon Bleu style the 2nd time I made it and my family loved it! I also like to sprinkle some ritz cracker crumbs on the top for good measure. I know my kids will clean their plates when I make this meal. Yay!
This was amazing! My hubby told me I could make this again, lol! We were fighting over the last piece, lol! I never tasted the mayo. I will be making this a lot! Total crowd pleaser!!!
Most delicious chicken recipe ever. Easiest too. I’m going to try the same mixture on a salmon next, minus the cheese.
Great idea! Thank you so much for sharing that!
Probably one of my favorite recipes. Cheap and easy and tastes amazing. Make it bi weekly in our house
LOVE to hear that! We make it at least every other week. 🙂
Wow, this was amazing! I was quite skeptical since I am not a huge swiss fan, or mayo for that matter. But I had some swiss to use so I gave it a try. It is a keeper! I love how easy it is! We will definitely be making it a lot more. I microwaved 3 frozen chicken tenderloins (it’s just my husband and me plus a one-year-old) on low for 1 minute to start the defrost and then put them in an 8×8 glass pan and followed the recipe, reducing the cheese and sauce to half. The tenderloins were still frozen when I started the bake but they were done in about 40 minutes at 375F. Next time I will use a smaller pan so the edges don’t get so crispy, but every last scrap still got eaten so it was great!
I’m going to give this a whirl tonight over left over turkey. Baking time will be substantially less, but we’ll see how it goes!
Sorry, followed the directions exactly as written and the chicken turned out terrible. One hour in the oven is far too long! The chicken was dried out and the the cheese and sour cream/mayo were burnt. My husband who will eat almost anything refused to eat it.
Like any recipe you need to gauge cook time based on your own individual oven. It’s not the recipes fault you overlooked it.
This was AMAZING! I added a bunch of fresh baby spinach on top of the chicken before putting on the swiss cheese and it turned out great! I only baked for 45 minutes – the chicken was nice and juicy and the topping perfectly browned. This may be my new addiction :o) I could have licked the plate! Thanks for the recipe!
I dint know what I did wrong .. But it was all watery. The chicken was floating in a watery bath with Parmesan cheese sitting in top. Maybe covering it messed it up.
Hi. I’ve been making this for years and it’s absolutely delicious! I tweak the recipe by substituting either cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup diluted with 1/2 cup of cooking sherry. The chicken comes out so moist.
Cooked this tonight and it was delicious but was wondering how good it is the next day warmed up? Reheating in the microwave doesn’t mess it up does it?
Trying this recipe for supper tonight! I love easy recipes like this, they’re life savers for a new teacher!
How did it turn out?
Please feel free to use my email address for recipes. Love this one!
So happy to see a recipe that not only looks delicious, but does not require a can of creamed soup.. I can’t wait to give it a try!!
Let me know if you give it a try – it’s delicious! 😀
This looks so good that I can almost smell it. I am going to try it. Also, thank you for adding a “print” button to your site. That made it so easy to print the recipe.
I made this tonight and it was AMAZING!! I did tweek a few things. Instead of adding garlic and Parmesan to the mixture, I mixed in a TBSP. of pesto. I also sprinkled shredded Parmesan on top of the chicken after I spread on the cream sauce.
I served it over garlic butter spaghetti noodles with mushrooms. It will definitely be a staple in our house from now on!!
Sounds delish!! Love what you tweeked:) Thanks for letting me know!
Made this the other night using mozzarella cheese instead of swiss cheese. It was delicious! My entire family loved it. In the comments some people posted that the cheese mixture melted off the chicken, maybe they did not pat the chicken dry before putting the cheese on. I also do not like mayo, but I honestly did not taste it.
Thank you Vicky for sharing! So, glad your family loved it!
I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR HOURS FOR CHICKEN BREAST RECIPES FOR EASTER,SOME FAMILY MEMBERS DO NOT EAT HAM(GO FIGURE).
YOUR RECIPE IS SOO SIMPLE AND LOOKS FOR DELICIOUS!
AND VERY FAMILY FRIENDLY ESPECIALLY WITH A 16 YEAR OLD PICKY EATER.
HAVE ALL THE INGREDIENTS,AND WILL BE COOKING THIS IN THE MORNING.
THANKS FOR THE RECIPE,JUST SO SORRY IT TOOK ME HOURS TO FIND THIS.
P.S. I HOPE GOUDA SLICES WORK BECAUSE I CAN NOT DEAL WITH ANYMORE GROCERY STORES!
This is the perfect recipe for everyone! I hope they all enjoyed it, like we do!
Thanks for the great recipies. I too love zucchini, a lot of chicken, and am trying to eat more healthy.
My family and I love this!
I add chicken broth to the pan to help keep the chicken moist and give it extra flavor. As well, I cook it for 30 mins check it, THEN add the cheese and spread. Just so it doesn’t burn. We love it tho. Thanks for the recipe!
Those changes sound great!! Chicken broth adds a yummy taste! Glad your family loved it!!
That sounds like a good idea. About to make this recipe tonight and will try adding the broth and waiting on topping with the cheese mixture as well. thanks.
Making this for dinner tonight. But my chicken wasn’t all the way thawed out can u pre cook it and then put the sauce on it??
Yes, that should work, since it all goes in the oven to warm and melt the cheese and sauce. Atleast, you know your chicken won’t be frozen:)
I made a mistake and got shredded parm cheese will that work?
I haven’t tried that, but I don’t see why not:) Since, it all melts, it should work! Let me know!!
I made this today and it was totally excellent!!!! There was only 2 of us so I used 2 chicken breasts and made half the sauce. Gosh, I thought an hour seemed like a long time but it was perfect. So moist and tender! Thank you so much for this wonderful outstanding chicken bake!
Yay!! Glad you liked it!! That hour makes a difference:) Thanks for letting me know!
This sounds really good but my hubby doesn’t like mayonnaise. Can I substitute salad dressing instead?
I haven’t tried that, so I’m not sure how it would change the taste. You could always try, then you’ll know:) I’d love to know what you do and how it turns out!
This looks great and I have all the ingredients on hand! This should go well with the leftover mashed potatoes I am trying to use.
It is!! That would be perfect with it! Hope you like it!! Thank you:)
Can you use miracle whip or does it need to be real mayo?
I haven’t tried this using miracle whip, but it doesn’t hurt to try:) I know they are different in taste, so it may taste a little different. If you try it, I’d love to know what you think, so we can share that info! Thanks:)
Delicious!! Didn’t have swiss, so made this with provolone slices instead and it was wonderful. This dish will definitely be going into our dinner rotation.
Provolone sounds delish!! Thanks so much for sharing!!
Some thunderstorms ruined my plans of grilling tonight, so I threw this together after finding it on pinterest. Had a 6-breast pack from the store. That filled up the entire pan. Used a bag of shredded swiss that I had on hand and mixed it together with the other ingredients….think that worked better with it being shredded.
Yum yum yum
nom nom nom
I’m glad you gave this a try!!! Thanks so much for letting me know! We love it!!
Just went in the oven…can’t wait for some comfort food
Definitely comfort food!! Thanks so much for trying it out! Hope you liked it 🙂
Do you have nutritional info on this recipe? Like carbs, etc? We are low carving but this looks so yummy!!
I don’t. I try not to know! You’d have to look at each ingredient and go from there. Sorry, I don’t have it on hand.
This Creamy Swiss Chicken Bake looks wonderful, but nobody in my family likes mayonnaise. Is there something else I could use? More sour cream? Cream cheese? A little evaporated milk? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you!!
I wish I knew the best answer! You could add more sour cream or use yogurt. Those would be my best guesses. I’d love to know what you use!
The mayo acts as an oil You can’t taste it.
This meal turned out freaking amazing! Love this recipe!
LOL…thank you!! So, glad you like it 🙂
I made this for my husband and 2 teenage sons. All gave it 2 thumbs up.
🙂 That makes me so happy to hear that!! Thank you!
My husband and I tried this recipe yesterday. We loved it. I will be making it again. Thanks for sharing !!
🙂 That makes me so happy to hear!!! Thank you!!
Do you suggest Real Mayo or Miracle Whip? My friend’s aunt made something similar like this years ago & I never forgot it.
I prefer real mayo, but I’m sure you could use which ever one you like better. Hard to forget a recipe like this..it’s so good 🙂 Thanks!!
Made tonite. Was a little disappointed. Flavor was delicious, however, was overcooked. Pulled out after 30 minutes as I noticed the chicken was cooked but I still had minimal browning. Would recommend only cooking for 20 minutes based on a medium sized boneless, skinless breast. Cover & let rest for 5 minutes before serving. Maybe even broil at end. 60 minutes is way too long! Just needs a little tweaking. Can’the adjust stars for rating. Would rate 2 starsenal forinnacurate cooking time.
Thank you for letting me know! Sorry, it was overcooked. Hope you’ll try it again sometime 🙂
Delicious! Fast, easy to throw together and yummy! My husband doesn’t like chicken because he says it’s always dry and tasteless, but he likes this. Very cheesy and gooey good. It’s a great recipe which lends itself to different tastes, like adding paprika or hot sauce for some kick, or onions and bell peppers, or even mushrooms. The only negative thing I have to say is the time in the oven was wrong for me. I cooked mine at 350 degrees for 35 minutes, which was plenty oven-time for me. Maybe it was because I was only cooking 2 boneless chicken breasts, or maybe it was because your chicken was a bone-in or larger than mine. My suggestion would be to add the time choices for medium boneless chicken breasts versus large or bone-in chicken breasts. My boneless chicken was white and firm, not pink or watery, so I knew it was cooked thoroughly. Delicious – we are putting it on our menu rotation. Thank you sooooo much!!!!
Can this be frozen? Just wondering in case I wanted to take it to a new mother, an sick friend, etc.
I personally haven’t done that, yet 🙂 I don’t see why it couldn’t. Let me know, if you decide to freeze it. I’d love to know how it comes out. Thank you!!
Did you try freezing this? I was wondering the same thing. I made this last night and it was amazing.
WOULD PROVOLONE CHEESE WORK ALSO
Just about any cheese would,, ????❤
I haven’t tried, but I bet it will. Let me know what you think. Thanks so much!
Thank you!!! So, glad you liked it 🙂
Made this last night for dinner and it was a hit, extremely flavorful, all together a great dish. Will add this one to our favorites for sure. ,♡♡♡♡
Yay!! That makes me so happy to hear! Thanks so much!!
Love your recipes BUT it would be helpful if you included the nutritional info. Im diabetic and
have to watch the carbs/salt.
I made this tonight as it popped up on Pinterest this morning. Wow. It was so delicious. No complaints from my kids (amazing) and my husband said it was one of the best chicken dishes I ever made. I used asiago cheese instead of Swiss cause that’s what I had, and subbed 1/4 Greek yogurt for 1/4 of mayo. Everything else I did exactly like the recipe. Thanks !!
Thank you so much for giving it a try and I’m so glad you all liked it!! Those substitutes sound perfect!
We loved this recipe. It was excellent and easy to put together. will be making it again soon. Thank you so much!
I’m so glad 🙂 Thank you for trying it and for letting me know.
I’ve liked a few of your recipes but notice they contain mayonnaise. I have several family members who do not like mayonnaise. Is there a substitute I can use?
Thank you so much!! Not sure what your family likes, but you could try…miracle whip, greek yogurt, avocado, hummus, or nut butter. Hope some of those help!! Thanks again!
We tried this tonight and it was so good! I’m picky about chicken so it’s nice to find a recipe to add to my box! I used 4 thick chicken breasts and pounded them out a little bit. I wonder if the ppl having dried out chicken are using to small of a breast? And I used 8 slices of cheese. The only request from my husband is to use half the amount of garlic powder next time because he’s not a big fan of garlic. But this was very delicious! Baked for 1 hour and it sat for about 20 minutes before we ate.
Great, thank you so much for letting me know!! So, glad you all liked it!
I’ve made this twice now. My (adult) kids love it. They’ve declared that this has to be kept in the family. It is really delicious.
Haha..I’m so glad they like it!! What’s not to love? Thanks so much for letting me know!!
This dish I will be making this weekend
I hope you like it, as much as we do. Let me know what you think 🙂 Thank you!
This is the only review I have ever given anywhere…. this is absolutely amazing! My ten and two year old are super picky and they devour this!
Thanks for making me feel so special 🙂 I’m so glad it was a hit!!
I have made this a couple of times. And my family absolutely LOVES it. I have been told to never lose this recipe. I have pork chops tonight and am considering trying this recipe with them. Great idea or for God sakes no?!
That’s a great question!! It never hurts to try! I’d love to know what you think. Thank you for letting me know, that the recipe is a keeper 🙂
I pinned this recipe forever ago, make it ALL. THE. TIME. But today I received an email from Pinterest that it was being removed because you complained that it was pinned… 🙁 Makes me sad.
This is an awesome recipe! I have made it many times.
Thanks so much for letting me know!! I’m glad you like it!
This was so delicious! My husband said this is a keeper! Thanks for the recipe ????
I’m glad it is a keeper! Thank you for letting me know!
Best chicken I’ve ever made! I added bacon bits and parsley on top! It was amazing
Great addition 🙂 I’m glad you liked it! Thanks for sharing!
Has anyone tried freezing this? My sister is having her first baby soon and I was hoping to make her some freezer meals she can just pop in the oven. Please let me know if anyone has tried it. Thanks!
I’m sorry, I haven’t. It should freeze ok..has anyone tried?
I’m making 12 chicken breasts. How should I adapt this recipe? Just found how to reply on your site!????
You would double the recipe 🙂 Hope that helps & hope you like it!
Thank you for sharing this simple and delicious recipe! We LOVE it! I sub shredded mozzarella instead of sliced Swiss and its grrreat! I just mix the cheese right into the mayo mixture. I also add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water to the bottom of the pan, which makes the sauce a little creamer.
That sounds yum..thank you for sharing!!
Excellent, a big hit with the family even my picky eater!
Yay! Glad those picky eaters liked it! Thank you for letting me know!
This is fantastic . Great flavor . Perfect for my low carb diet. I Will make it again
Haha! Thanks so much!
Saw this on FB. It looks delicious and so simple to make, will be trying it tomorrow
How did it turn out?
Absolutely delicious! It’s a family favorite. Making it for dinner tonight.
Yay!! I love to hear that! Thanks so much!
OMG. This was fantastic. My husband always complains chicken breast is dry. The secret it the thermometer. Stick it in the thickest part. Took it out of the oven just before the “poultry ” setting was reached. Let it set for a few minutes. Moist, tender and delicious.
Love those thermometers!! I’m so glad you liked it!! Thank you!!
This was a hit for me last night! Simple and very tasty…my kind of recipe!!
Love hearing that!! Thank you so much for letting me know and thank you for making it!
I’m doing the no or low carb diet thing and will be giving this a try tonight. I think I’ll serv it with spaghetti squash and pesto or maybe herb infused finishing butter. Thanks
That would be perfect!! I hope you like it 🙂 Let me know what you think! Thank you!
I cooked this in my hot air fryer and it was delicious. I did cover with a piece of foil after about 10 minutes to keep it from browning too much. So glad I could make this great dish without turning on my big oven in our Texas heat.
Don’t miss that Texas humidity! So, glad you liked it!! Thank you!
My family loves this recipe and ask for it ALL THE TIME 🙂
I love hearing that!! I’m so glad they like it! Thank you so much for letting me know!
I make this alllllll the time. I always make it with rice. Soooooooo good thanks!
I am so glad you like it!! Rice is great with it! Thank you so much for letting me know!
Is there a cheese other than Parmesan that I could use for this recipe please? I cannot tolerate the smell of Parmesan – makes me physically ill!
You could just leave it out or try Pecorino or Asiago. I hope that helps! Let me know what you try 🙂 Thanks!
Last night my 9 year granddaughter made this with very little help. We used Swiss cheese and fresh parmesan cheese and it was delicious
WOW! That’s awesome!! Tell her great job! I’m glad you all liked it! Thank you!
Deliciously good!! Will add this to my keepers! Thank you.
I am glad you like it!! Thank you so much for sharing!
Great recipe! I changed it a little by putting the sauce under the Swiss cheese and to cut down cooking time I went about pounding the chicken flat. This made it only take 20 minutes at 375 and then I finished out on broil for about a minute to give a nice crispy char on the cheese. My wife was loving it!
Great ideas..thanks for sharing & thank you for giving it a try!
Tasty and easy. It only took 35 minutes to bake.
Glad you thought so!! Thank you so much!
Oh this was so good! I added a small can of mushrooms to the sauce before putting it on top of the chicken. I’ll be making this again! Thanks for the recipe. ❤❤❤
You are so welcome! I’m so glad you like it! Thank you for letting me know!
I made this recipe and everyone loves it. Thank you
That makes me so happy to hear! Thank you so much!
Made this tonight with boneless thighs and added sliced deli ham on top of the cheese. It was AHMAZING!!!!! will be making this a lot. Thank you for the recipe!
Sounds yum!! Thank you so much for letting me know! Glad you liked it!
love this recipe make as much as possible.
Thanks so much!
Amazing flavor! My hubby loved it! I am saving it to my recipe rotation!
Yay!! Glad he did 🙂 Thank you for sharing!
This is absolutely one of my favorite chicken dinners of all time and a staple in my house. Thanks for sharing!!!
Love to hear that!! Glad to share!
Made this tonight. I left the 1/2 tsp of salt out because I’m on a low sodium diet. By doing so, it went from 720mg down to 429mg. It’s salty enough with the Swiss & grated Parmesan cheese. You won’t miss the 1/2 tsp. This recipe is definitely a keeper
I’m so glad you tried it & liked it! Thank you so much for sharing!
I tried your recipe a while back and my family absolutely LOVES it!! We are having it for dinner tonight and everyone is so excited! Its the perfect chicken dinner that takes little to no time and effort and the taste and flavors are just phenomenal! Thank you for sharing such a delicious recipe!
Awe, thank you so much!!! I am so glad it was a hit!
We just made the creamy chicken bake…OH MY GOODNESS, it has to be one of the best chicken recipes I’ve tried. Hubby and I are putting this on our at least once a month meals. Can’t wait to make this for my married children. They will love it. You are now my favorite recipe site. Thank you so much.
OH MY GOODNESS, we just had the creamy swiss chicken bake, to die for.
This has got to be on the top of my chicken recipes. My husband and I said this will be a monthly meal (if not more) for sure. Can’t wait to make it for my married children. I know they will love it. You are now my favorite recipe site. Thank you so much for this yummy meal.
You are so nice!! I am so happy that it was a hit! Thank you so much!
Do you have nutritional value for this recipe?
I am sorry, I don’t 🙁
Your recipe would not print. When the print button showed a blank sheet coming up, I even tried to copy and paste it (without success I might add). Very very frustrating. How can this be corrected so I can print out the recipe for the Parmesan/Swiss cheese chicken?
I’m not sure how to help? When I click on it, it pops up. It took a few seconds, but it does pop up. You may need to try again or maybe change some settings on your computer? I hope you can get it.
I think I already subscribe to your web site but I wound like to download your E-book of recipes.
You would click on the shop button at the top & it is in there. There are many to chose from & just follow the steps 🙂
I love this recipe! I serve it over white rice and add a can of cream of chicken soup to the bottom of the dish to give it more sauce. It is delicious!
Sounds perfect! Thanks for sharing!
I made this tonight and the only thing I did differently was to use provolone cheese instead because it was what I had on hand.
I would make this again.
Provolone works 🙂 Thank you for trying it!!
This recipe looks amazing, I will definitely be giving this a try.
Thank you! It is a hit at our house 🙂 I hope you like it!
Any recomemdations for over pasta? Will there be enough sauce? Probably shouldn’t have had that 2nd beer huh?!?! ????
You could use any pasta, really & there won’t be tons of sauce, so I would just pour what you can from the pan over it or maybe just butter the pasta up & add some seasoning. It might be good with a little marinara.
Thanks for sharing this recipe. I will definitely try this. I love chicken items very much. Also i like to cook. I am sure enough that my family members will definitely love this dish.
This is a favorite around here. I cook with chicken so much, too!! Hope your family loves it!!
So, I”ve made this dish once and my family LOVED it. My only issue with it is that the dairy in the recipe separates in the dish. It becomes rather unappealing looking. Do you know why that happens and how I can fix it?
I am so glad your family loves it! I am not sure why it did. I haven’t had that happen. Was everything fresh ingredients?
I’m gonna add some chopped red onion, raisins, chopped apples,
Sounds great! Hope you like it!!
Delicious. Followed original recipe and it came out perfectly moist and savory. Two questions: 1) How best to warm up leftovers to keep chicken from drying out and getting rubbery; 2) How many calories per chicken breast serving.
Thanks for a great recipe.
Yay! I usually just microwave leftovers & I do not know the calorie count, I’m sorry!
Hi. I just was wondering about how many calories do you think this Swiss chicken recipe is?
Oh, I am sorry, I do not have that information, but there are sites that will convert the recipe & give you the nutrition information. I hope that helps..sorry again!
my family loved this! Even my picky 13 year old said it was really good!
That makes me happy to hear! Thank you for sharing 🙂
What is the nutritional break down?
Oh, I am sorry, I do not have that information. There are sites that will convert recipes though 🙂
Made the Swiss chicken Bake , But I spiced it up alittle , I added 1/4 cup of Monterey Jack Cheese queso with white and Yellow american cheese , used BBQ seasoning and Italian Seasoning and some Mrs Dash Garlic and Herb Seasoning , and then I used Bacon and Cheddar and French onion Sour Cream 3 TBS of Milk Mix all of this together with the Parm Cheese and then Placed Bacon on top uncooked and Placed in the oven . Was Really GOOD ! Thank YOU For one of Our New Favorites .
Thank you for sharing what you did! Sounds yum! Thank you!
I’m trying the Swiss chicken breast recipe now
Made it for the wife tonight and we loved it…added mushrooms to the top and it was perfect. Thanks for the great and simple idea!
Yay!! Love to hear that. Adding mushrooms is a great idea. Thank you for letting me know!
I LOVE this recipe! We had it for dinner last month, and we are making it for dinner tonight! We get super “cheesy” and make Parmesan covered Asparagus on the side! 🙂
YUM!! Love cheesy asparagus! I am glad you guys like this recipe 🙂 We love it, too! Thank you!
This recipe is by far one of the best!!! It was so moist and the taste was unbelievable. My husband and I could not believe how good this was.
Yay!! Love to hear that! Thank you for giving it a try!
We would just like to say THANK YOU FOR THIS AMAZING RECIPE!!!!! It is one of our new family favourites! It is absolutely delicious, quick and easy to make, what more can a busy working Mum ask for?!
I agree & that’s why I like to share the recipes I do 🙂 I am so glad you like this recipe! Thank you so much for letting me know!
This is delicious ????
Yay! I am glad you think so 🙂 Thank you so much!
THANK YOU for sharing your wonderful recipes!
You are so welcome!! I am glad to share!!
Are your Nutrition Facts correct? Because if so, I can’t ever make this recipe again (and I love it)! It reads as if it’s for the entire dish, not each serving.
I love your recipes! On the Swiss Chicken Bake does it really have 2988 calories per serving??
L C Anderson
Made this tonight and added sautéed spinach in the mixture before adding it to the chicken. New favorite chicken dish!!! The recipe is being passed through my family, it’s THAT good.
I think the nutritional information for this recipe is incorrect.
SUrely The calorie count is not 3000 per serving!!
Holy crap! Is THe Nutritional value CORRECt per serving? Or is THAt FOr The ENTire dish?
Thanks so much!!
YIKES!!!! The per serving Info youve provided, that musy be for the entire tecipe, right!?!?
You might want to check the nutrition facts?
The serving size is not listed. All it says is per serving
Curious if anyone has made this with shredded or diced chicken and what the chAnges might be For the cooK temp/time? My hibby isnt a huge fan of whole chicken breasts so i figured shredding or Dicing then covering with the toppings might help?
It might be less, but I always use a meat thermometer & chicken should be 165 degrees Fahrenheit. That would be a great option 🙂
Are the nutrition fact correct?
Is the nutritional value lIsted with oR without rice? Thanks!
The aroma this dish Amided was amazing. I did add ham under THe swiss cheese. I will make this again But may stuff the chicken first then add The Toppings
Sounds great! I am so glad you tried it! Thank you 🙂
I WANT to try it, but first want to ask, are you sure the nutrition facts are accurate? Calories, SODIUm and potassium levels seen extremely high COmpared to 18 grams of carbs, even allowing for Mayo and sour cream. Thanks?
Do you bake uncovered?
Yes 🙂 Enjoy!
If making this to freeze for college boys, how do i adapt for Them to cook? SHOULD i cook before freezing or use cooked chicken breasTs?
This is delicious! Super easy and my family loved it!
Happy to hear that!! Thank you so much!
This dish is so tasty and my entire family likes it- which is a tall order! My husband is particularly Picky, and he was pleasantly surprised by the flavor!
Well, that makes me so happy to hear 🙂 Thank you so much for giving it a try 🙂
This was delicious! We will make this recipe again!
Thank you so much for making it & letting me know! I am glad you liked it!
Would I change the amount of time to cook if I’m using chicken tenders? I’m trying this tonight and can’t wait!
It might be a little less. I haven’t tried, but tenders usually cook quicker, so you can check it maybe 10-15 min earlier.
Has anyone tried to make this in an instant pot? Just wondering if it would work. THIS recipe is a solid quick family meal that everyone loves. and if I could make it in the a ip, that would make it even more incredible! I add some red Cayenne pepper to give it some extra pop of flavor, but this recipe is one I that never HAs leftovers!
I am so glad to hear that. I have not tried in an instant pot, so that’s a good question. I am sure it could, though 🙂
Surely the nutr content ISN’T for one serving…..If it is for the entire recipe prepared, how many servings does the recipe make? I would like toget a better idea of per serving nut content.
This recipe sounds delicious! the calorie count for the whole recipe right? 2988 calories sounds like A LOT for one serving.
Loved it my husband is not a big chicken fan but enjoyed this recipe, it was so moist, thanks for sharing.
I am glad he did!! Thank you for trying it 🙂
It waS delicious! I used chicken cutlets and baked baked for 40 minutes. So yummy! Thanks
Yay!! Happy you liked it! Thank you for letting me know!
So easy and so delicious! I was out of swiss one time and used PROVOLONE instead. It was still tasty!
Easy dinner recipes are my favorite- thank you!
Delicious!! My family (ages 6-11) loved this, served With garlicky broccoli (baked in the oven At the same time as the chicken, different pans) and angel hair pasta. Yum!
Yum, making me hungry!! Thank you for sharing it with your family. I am happy they all loved it!
This is such a great quick dinner idea! And it tastes like it took you longer to make!
What kind of rice do You Recommend servinG This over?
I would probably just do white rice. I hope you give it a try 🙂
This is fantastic! will definitely be making again.
I am so glad you think so 🙂 Thank you!
YUMMY. will make again. next time I will exclude the salt during cooking, (just add at the table.) Will also increase the sauce, boy was it good!
So happy you liked it! Thank you for giving it a try 🙂
i made this for the first time a couple weeks ago it was ok but the chicken was very dry!! any recommendations ? maybe chicken broth on the bottle a little?
Yes, you could try that. I haven’t had that issue, but I’ve heard that helps 🙂
this was awesome. Upon reading other reviews, I did make a few changes. First, I split the breasts because one whole breast is too much. I used one large clove of fresh garlic minced. I also put in a slice of ham – like a “cordon Bleu”. Added Panko bread crumbs on top – awesome!!!! Next time – 40 minutes because the breasts are half the size. Thanks so much.
You are so welcome!! Thank you for sharing what you did!
easy to make
I am glad you think so 🙂 Thank you so much!
Probably one one of the best keto style recipes i have ever had
Thank you so much 🙂
My family ate this up. My husband loved the sauce and my boys actually didn’t complain about dinner! The chicken came out tender and the swiss cheese adds something special to the flavor. I served it over mashed potatoes and a side of bacon green beans. very good!!
My picky eater loves this recipe and asks for it twice a week. ??
Yay!! I am so glad to hear that! Thank you so much!
Love this recipe! So easy and it turns out everytime! I would however recommend you baking it in a large pan so you g4t the golden results pictured.. I use the large shallow stone Pampered Chef has.. or a pan that is comparable to it.. This recipe is DELICIOUS! I have had several ask me for the reicpe.. Enjoy!! You won’t go wrong!
ps sorry for the caps, I can’t get my computer to do small letters.. hmmmm
I guess it wasn’t my computer, it was just the format of my post.. it changed after I clicked on post comment lol!
We love this recipe too! Thank you for trying it & for letting me know 🙂
Can you freeze this Reci –
Pe & I assume you do not cover
to bake. First time making this.
Cannot rate but lOoks & sounds
I personally haven’t tried freezing this. I know sometimes, when you freeze sour cream or mayo, it just changes the consistency. No, you don’t cover. Hope you give it a try 🙂
Family is picky. This literally is their favourite food
Yay!! I am so glad they like it!! Thank you for letting me know!
I’M LATE TO THE BANDWAGON… MADE THIS TONIGHT AND IT WAS DELICIOUS. IT DID CURTLE, SO CURIOUS HOW I AVOID THAT… I ALSO THOUGHT IT WAS DONE AFTER ABOUT 45 MIN AND CHECKED INTERNAL TEMP AND IT SEEMED GOOD. I WILL TAKE THE SUGGESTION OF ADDING FOIL TO KEEP IT FROM OVER-BROWNING AND PROBABLY KEEP IT IN THE FULL HOUR NEXT TIME. I LOVE ALL YOUR RECIPES GIRL!
I DON’T KNOW WHY THIS IS ALL CAPS….
Thanks for giving it a try. I would just google about the curdling. There are lots of reasons it might. Glad you still liked it!
This was one of the best chicken recipes I have had in a long time. It had so much flavor. The only thing different I did WAS I didn’t have sliced Swiss cheese so I used shredded. I put a little of the cheese mixture on the Chicken so it helped to hold it on. Like glue ?. I will be making this again. Amazing!!!!
Perfect! I am happy you liked it! Thank you for sharing!!
this swiss chicken bake was the best ever! It had such a good flavor, can’t wait to make it again! we used noodles instead of rice, very yummy! Thanks for a fantastic recipe!
Great option!! Thank you so much for sharing that!
Oh my oh my I’m in hopes this is the recipe someone I’d worked with back in ea 1999 made some chi jen that I’ve loved and didn’t have the revipe for im cooking this today oh i hope this is it
I hope it is it, too!! Let me know what you think 🙂

I would double up on the MOZZARELLA , other then that, it was awesome! I’ll be sharing it with my friends and family.
Chicken was juicy and moist, thanks for the recipe!
Yay! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe 🙂
I love this recipe and have made it many times !!! But my stove is broken right now, so I wanted to ask if you think i could make this in a skillet on the stovetop
I have not tried, so I can’t say for sure. It wouldn’t have that golden color on top, but maybe??
It’s in the oven as we speak. The only change i made is seasoning my Chicken breasts. I am totes excited for this!
Yay!! Sure hope you like it! Thank you!
I CAN’T BELIEVE MY KIDS WOULDN’T BE ALL OVER THIS! BUT MORE FOR MOMMY THEN HEHEHE. MY MOUTH IS WATERING I FOUND THAT TO BE VERY AMUSING! DOES LOOK FABULOUS. HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY

We found your recipe on Baba’s macedonian old school cooking site. It was posted by a follower. tonight we enjyed it immensely. she fixed sauteed spinach and a salad made with cucumbers-tomatoes-banana peppers-vidalia onions-feta cheese with oil and red wine vinegar dressing. thank you. it was magnificent!

So happy you think so 🙂 Thank you for saying that!
I love this recipe. Can you make it ahead of time? So that I can just pop it in the oven when I’m ready?
For sure!! Happy you like this recipe 🙂 Thank you!!
I just wanted to let you know that years later, yep, this recipe is still being discovered and it’s GOLD!!!! I honestly thought I’d tried chicken every possible way in the universe but I’ve never tasted flavors like this. And it was so easy, I kept thinking I’d missed a step because I was done in 5 minutes. THANK YOU for such a realistic, busy mom, weekday dinner that somehow looks and tastes restaurant worthy!!
I am so glad you think that!! Thank you so much for letting me know 🙂
Hi! I don’t see my previous comment so hopefully this won’t get posted twice. 🙂 I was just wondering if you cut your chicken breasts in half to make 2 thinner cutlets or do you just leave them whole? Thank you!
Yes, you sure could 🙂 Hope you like it!
Little salty for me. I doubt I will make it again.
Thanks for trying it!
Have made this before with Parm cheeses but I do not have any and can’t leave th house. Can I use another cheese? I have Mozzarella, Havarti and cheddar. I know it probably won’t be as good but want to know if anybody else has tried another cheese? Have cheddar, mozzarella and
Havarti. I do have the Swiss.
I haven’t tried others, but I am sure any of those would work 🙂
Can this recipe be made ahead of time to be refrigerated or frozen?
I would make ahead & leave in the fridge, covered. I haven’t tried freezing.
So decadent, so delicious! Thank you so much for the recipe!
You are so welcome!! Glad you liked it! Thank you!
I did the rub first then I put cheese on top OOPS! would that still be ok ? Or will it not turn out ugh! https://greensowing.com I hate making cooking mistakes , please let me know soon
Hmmm..I wish I knew. I am sure it will still be fine 🙂 The flavors are all still there. Let me know!
OMG I just made this with left over turkey slices it is wonderful
Perfect!! Thank you for letting me know!
Easy and flavorful- a great weeknight dinner recipe!
This is so good and easy! My kids kind it too ❤
This is so good and easy! My kids loved it too ❤
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.
Happy to hear that! Thank you!
Thus is delicious and easy. M6 while family LOVED it
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.
You are welcome! Thank you for sharing that!
One of the best recipes I’ve come across excellant
Yay!! Thank you for saying that!
Made it and everyone loved it!!! Didn’t quite look like the picture but it still looked and tasted good.
That’s ok 🙂 I am so happy you liked it! Thank you!
Oh my! Absolutely one of the BEST dishes I have ever made! Mine actually looks just like the pic! I wish I could post a pic here.
Yay! That’s what I love to hear! Thank you for letting me know 🙂

Wow, this recipe tastes as good as it looks in the picture! I served it with Jasmine rice and broccoli. Very rich and delicious! Definitely a keeper👍 Thank you!
Our family loves this recipe!! My kids devour it! It really is so nice & creamy!
I LOVE how simple this recipe is to put together on a busy night! The flavor from the swiss cheese and parmesan take this recipe to a whole other level! So creamy and full of cheesiness!
A family favorite. What’s not to like with all the cheese and sauce?
I love it! Can I add bacon?🤷🏼♀️
Glad you do!! You sure could! Enjoy!
I’m always happy when I come across Recipes that my husband can eat on Keto. Can’t wait to make this one for him.
This was excellent, we all loved it! My kids are super picky and they were so happy with this dinner 🥰 They want me to make it every week
Yay!! Love to hear that! Thank you for letting me know!
I’m planning late, cooking tomorrow. There is no sour cream on hand, and no time to get any before cooking. What are your thoughts on cream cheese or goat cheese, in small portions, as a substitute? Some of my family are not adventurous eaters. Substitute, or wait and try this later?.
I haven’t tried, but I am sure those are both great options!
Very delicious, the whole family loved it! Definitely added to the rotation
The only things I did differently was pan fry the chicken before baking it, and added provolone on top of the swiss to make it extra cheesy!
Great idea!! I’ll have to try that! Thank you for sharing that!
The recipe looks good but there were so many ads and pop ups and videos I found it almost impossible to read.
I’m so sorry you weren’t able to read the recipes with the ads and pop ups. I will look in to that. Thank you!
Loved this used fresh parmesan cheese and only change I would make is leave out the salt.
I’m so glad you loved it! Thanks for sharing what you do!
Hi, can I use Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream as I can’t eat that?
You sure can! Greek yogurt is a great substitute for sour cream!
Yummy! So easy, 30 minute prep time. I served it with rice as suggested. Thank you for the recipe.
This was very good, quick and easy to make. It was a touch salty between all the cheese, mayo and added salt. Next time I will eliminate the added salt or at least significantly reduce to just a dash. Other than that it was good.
I’m glad you enjoyed the recipe. Yes, you can certainly adjust the added salt to your liking! 🙂
Your pin buttons are not working. I tried several times to pin this and a couple other of your recipes. None will pin. It gives me an error message. However, I tried other sites recipes which did pin. So it seems the problem is your site and not Pinterest.
Swiss chicken bake was extremely salty!! I would eliminate the salt for sure. Perhaps low sodium Swiss would help too. I would not make this recipe again.
You can certainly adjust the amount of salt for your liking. Thanks for the feedback.
This is a wonderful dish that all my family will eat!
I’m so happy to hear that your family enjoys this!
This has always been the go to recipe. My family and back thank you. Never can go wrong. I switch it up, by using the pastry puff breadsticks, or croissants. And use wild rice, and fresh brocolli.
Oh I’m so glad this is a go-to recipe for you. Thanks for sharing! I’m happy to hear you all enjoyed it!
This looks delicious and it’s low carb
It’s a good one! Hope you enjoy it!!
Made this for dinner last night and it was delish! Served it with rice, next time will try buttered noodles per my boys’ requests. Will definitely make again.
Yay! I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed the recipe. This is a favorite at my house too. Thanks for sharing!
Wonderful meal, I did some substitutions due to diet restrictions and it was still amazing. I used low fat yogurt instead of sour cream and eliminated the salt.
Yay! I’m so glad you were able to tweak as you needed for dietary restrictions and that you enjoyed the meal. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks so much! I’m glad you enjoyed it!
Just put this in the oven a few minutes ago. The house smells wonderful! I’m sure it will taste as good as it smells.
I’m so glad you’re enjoying the smell! I hope you enjoyed it!
This was very tasty! Had tons of flavor. We had leftovers the next night and those were good too! Will make again! Thanks!!
Yay! That is so good to hear! Thanks so much for sharing!
This was delicious!! Followed the recipe exactly, but did not add the salt.Thank you for a wonderful, easy weeknight meal❤ Yummy!!
Oh you’re welcome!! I’m glad to hear you enjoyed the recipe!
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.
Mmmm sounds delicious!! So glad to hear you enjoyed the dish.
Great dish! Perfect for a hurry up dinner! Served over bow tie noodles. The family really enjoyed it.
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.
Wow! That all sounds amazing. Sounds like a great meal — sides and all. Thanks for sharing!
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.
Yummy!! I’m so glad this recipe is a hit with your family! Thanks for sharing.
This is very high in fat and cholesterol. Do you have any recommendations to decrease these?
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.
I seldom ever post reviews…but after making this recipe, I couldn’t help myself!! It was so delicious and so easy…I couldn’t believe it!!! My husband and I both loved it!! Thank you so very much for this simply incredible recipe!!
I appreciate you taking the time to write a review. Thank you so much!! I’m so happy to hear you and your husband enjoyed the recipe. Yay!!
My family loves this recipe and so do I so easy!! My grown daughters always ask what’s the recipe
Yay!! So glad the recipe is a hit with your family!
The flavor is pretty good, however, be sure your chicken breasts are either fresh or rung out dry if from frozen. I patted mine dry which were from frozen, but ended up still having a quarter inch of liquid in the 13 x 9“ pan. Also, the mixture curdled so I was left with a strange consistency like ricotta.
Thanks for your feedback and for giving the recipe a try!!
Family loved it! So quick aGand easy!
Yay!! I’m so glad the recipe was a hit with your family!
Easy & yummy! Please give them a try!
I love Swiss cheese and this is so quick and easy!
This is one of my favorite easy weeknight meals!!/9 flavorful!
Wow looks so yummy 😋
Love this recipe! Not difficult to make and the whole family likes it!
On repeat as one of our favorites! 💛
oh wow that looks tasty
This recipe has become a “hosting” staple! Whenever I’m having the missionaries or another couple over for dinner, i whip this out because it smells and tastes so fancy, but it is SO simple to make! And my whole family loves it, which is a true miracle. 😂
Hooray!! So glad this recipe is a winner for your family!
This is delicious. Easy and yummy.
I am always looking for new recipes for chicken and this is amazing
Thank you!! So glad to hear you enjoy it!
Great recipe! Perfect dish for a hurry up dinner. I served over bow tie noodles.
I made this the other night and it was so good I’m making it again tonight! I love to cook and I don’t mind complex recipes but this one is so simple that it’s hard to believe how yummy! This will be on my list of go to’s hen entertaining.
Hooray!! I’m so glad to hear you loved the recipe. Simple and delicious is what we’re all about! 😉 Thanks for the kind words.
Awe, thank you so much! I’m so glad you enjoyed the recipe! 🙂
Do I need to cover the Swiss chicken bake with foil to cook?
Nope, you can cook uncovered.
This was delicious and oh so simple
Hooray!! Totally what we love to hear!
This has become one of my favorite recipes of all time! It is so easy to make and so delicious you will make it time and time again. Chicken so tender it melts in your mouth! Love this recipe.
That makes us so happy to hear!! So so glad you enjoy the recipe. Thanks for sharing!
I love making this! I only have chicken breast tenderloins would I be able to use those for this recipe? If so, how long would I cook for?
You could use those. I’d say maybe 20-25 minutes at 375? The best way to know if they are done is using a thermometer. When it ready 165 degrees, then you know the chicken is cooked through and just to perfection!
Everyone I have ever made this for loves it! Only thing I do different, is I chop up potatoes to put underneath the chicken and omg it’s soooooo good. I sometimes make extra sauce to cook directly on the potatoes. Makes the best tasting potatoes! Thanks for this recipe. I’ve used if for years
You’re so welcome! I’m glad it’s been a favorite through the years. I love the idea to add potatoes too. Sounds delicious!!
All right then. I’ve been looking for a chicken Parmesan recipe that doesn’t have mozzarella because I don’t have any. I do have Swiss cheese however. So here I go. I’m going to try this and I’ll let you know how it turned out
Hope you enjoy the chicken, even with that cheese swap!
I have made this often. Each time my husband says this is the best, make chicken like this all the time,😁
Awe, that makes me so happy to hear! It’s one of my family’s favorites as well. 🙂
So good! Only my husband kept asking for more sauce. Can I double the wet ingredients for double the sauce? Will it be too runny?
I have been making this dish since I saw your post in 2020. I love how it tastes so good every time! I am now eating low carb and this recipe is perfect. I make it and serve it over rice with carrots on the side all the time. This time I will make it with loaded cauliflower mash and green beans. I can’t wait to make it again. I follow the recipe exactly and it is perfect!
Awe, that makes me so happy to hear! Thanks so much for sharing what you did with this recipe. It all sounds delicious!
I absolutely LOVED this recipe the only thing was the liquid was quite watery….anyone else experience that or know what could have caused it? Even though it was watery, it was still delicious. Would just like it to be a little thicker.
I had the same issue. I think it may have been juices from the chicken? I’m gonna try it with precooked chicken next time because it was really good but a lot of the sauce and cheese was in the juice.. I know mayo can separate when cooked too. I also put some crushed French’s dried onions on top. OMG!!! Game changer. All in all ot was very good, just not very saucy but liquidy.
My family liked this recipe. Forty-five minutes was more than enough time to bake it.
So glad to hear your family enjoyed this!! Thanks for sharing!
Do you use fresh/bagged grated Parmesan cheese or the canned kind like Kraft?
You can use either! Both taste delicious, so it’s whatever you prefer.
If I use canned chicken, how long should I cook it?
If the chicken is already pre-cooked (like canned chicken), you’ll just need to cook until everything is heated through. So 20-30 minutes or so? I’d say just keep an eye on it and when the cheese is bubbling and the sauce is melted and the chicken is warm, it’s ready! 🙂
Have made this several times, & it has quickly become a favorite with whole family. Thank you!
You’re welcome!! So glad to hear it is a family favorite now.
Do you think I could add some broccoli to make it a little like Chicken Divan?
I think that would be really good. I serve broccoli or asparagus with this
I found this recipe about 5 years ago and make it all the time! My family loves it so much. I have used provolone, Swiss, and Munster cheese and it turns out divine every time. I have to say that I like the Munster best 😊
Super easy and good! Will definitely make again!!!
I’m lactose intolerant I can handle Swiss and I made it with vegan mayo and dairy free sour cream it was delicious!
I’m so happy to hear that! Thanks for sharing!!
Had all ingredients but I wasn’t sure what to whip up for dinner. Searched my saved recipes on Pinterest & this recipe was selected. This is a whipped up dinner with little effort and a lot of taste! My hubby said nothing..crickets, he cleaned his plate and said “so glad we have leftovers”
Served with rice as suggested but added a dollop of butter.
This dinner was so good that I would definitely serve this to guests.
Can this be made in a crock pot?
WOW! This recipe was really a HOME RUN ! Loved it 😊
A staple in our home!! My picky eaters love this!
Oh this makes me so happy to hear! So glad the recipe is a hit!
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!
