Swiss Chicken Bake

I can't even remember where this recipe originated. I know it's been in my meal rotation for at least 12 yrs. A family favorite and often asked for by friends for their "Birthday Dinners".

  • ·
    6 boneless skinless chicken breast (approx 4 ounces each)
  • ·
    6-8 slices swiss cheese (mozzarella works too)
  • ·
    ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ·
    ½ cup sour cream
  • ·
    ¾ cup grated parmesan cheese (¼ cup set aside)
  • ·
    ½ tsp. salt
  • ·
    ½ tsp. pepper
  • ·
    1 tsp. garlic powder

How to Make Swiss Chicken Bake


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Line a 9x13 pan with foil, spray very lightly with cooking spray.
  3. If your chicken breasts are different thicknesses, pound them using a meat mallet until they are roughly the same thickness.
  4. Pat chicken dry and place in pan.
  5. Add sliced Swiss cheese on top of chicken breasts. You may have to divide a slice or two to cover the chicken completely.
  6. In a bowl mix mayonnaise, sour cream, ½ cup Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Spread this over chicken. Sprinkle chicken breast with the remaining ¼ cup Parmesan cheese.
  7. Bake for 30 mins. Take the chicken out of the oven, and insert a thermometer into its thickest part. The chicken is ready when it registers an internal temperature of 160 to 165 degrees Fahrenheit on an instant-read thermometer.

    **Chicken will continue to cook after it's removed from the heat source and the internal temperature will rise about 5 to 10 degrees F. in the first few minutes it's off the heat.
  8. Transfer the baked chicken breasts to a platter. Loosely tent with foil and allow to rest 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
