This mushroom Swiss chicken bake is one of my mom’s Sunday dinner/party recipes.

She only made it when they were having friends over or for Sunday dinners.

If we got the chance to eat it, I considered it a treat!

The savory sauce and gooey Swiss cheese make this one of my most favorite dinner recipes.

Now that I’m the cook, I make it whenever I want to!

It’s fancy enough for a dinner party, but affordable enough for a weeknight meal.

Recipe Tips and Substitutions

I always cube the chicken for this dinner recipe because I deathly afraid of undercooked chicken.

If you’re going to make this dinner with full chicken breasts, you may consider butterflying (cutting in half horizontally) them to ensure they cook all the way through.

If you’re not a fan of mushrooms (like me!) you can omit the jar of whole mushrooms. You’ll still get the flavor from the mushroom soup.

I have a specific routine for this dinner to save dishes and to keep from cross-contaminating and it goes like this:

  • Grate the Swiss cheese into a 2-cup measuring cup over a cutting board
  • Cube the chicken on the cutting board and immediately place the cutting board and knife into the dishwasher
  • Sprinkle cheese on chicken and mix the sauce ingredients in 2-cup measuring cup, starting with the broth to measure out 1/4 cup

If you want a runnier sauce, you can add more broth.
