Our sweet baby girl was born on Monday, September 22! Meet Abigail Lauren Allen– 7lbs 02oz


We’ve been lucky to have friends bring us dinner the past few nights, but once that service ends I’ve loaded my arsenal of super simple meals that will be easy to make while adjusting to life with two kids. This Creamy Swiss Chicken Bake is the easiest meal to throw together.

You layer raw chicken with cheese and sauce and bake it–hardly any prep time at all and the oven does all the work!  I will say I was weary about the sauce having yogurt in it because I thought it might curdle when baking, but it turned out great! It’s yummy and a meal my husband and one-year-old enjoy.

    Just made this for dinner last night and the whole family loved it. We served it with mashed potatoes instead of rice, but either would be delicious.

    The taste was amazing. I did have a curdle problem though. I’m not sure what went wrong. Maybe you can offer a suggestion. I worked with the sauce to make it smoother. My boys gobbled it up. Will make it again, hopefully without the curdling next time.

  3. We just had this for dinner and….yum!!! My husband is in love with this recipe and my teenager had nothing snarky to say, so this one’s a keeper! Next time I may hold off on the salt in the mayo/parm mixture, but there’s no reason to change anything else at all. Very, very good!

  4. Can you fix this as it is in a crockpot? Do you have to cream soup or something else from making it stick ?

    1. Hi Joyce, I’ve never tried it in the crock pot but you would have to make adjustments for liquid. Cream of soup may work great. Good luck!
