Recipe Ingredients for Creamy Swiss Cheese Chicken

16 oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 oz Swiss cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
4 oz yogurt, whole milk
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Recipe Directions for Creamy Swiss Cheese Chicken

  1. *Note: If you are using frozen or even partly frozen chicken breasts for this dish, there is a chance the finished dish after baking will be watery. I recommend using fresh, not frozen, chicken breasts and patting them dry prior to using.

  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and lightly spray a 9X13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

  3. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels and season on each side with salt and pepper. Lay the chicken breast pieces in a single layer on the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Layer the Swiss cheese slices over the chicken. In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, yogurt, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Spread this mixture over the chicken and cheese. Top with remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.

  4. Bake for 45 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is hot and bubbly. Serve over hot, steamed rice.
