Um, wow. This meal is really simple and really delicious. Just a little bit of mixing and some time in the oven and you’ve got dinner ready! The chicken comes out so flavorful and the sauce is wonderful!

This is certainly not the prettiest or most glamorous meal but it is tasty enough that it doesn’t matter!

Ingredients:

recipe from: melskitchencafe.com

2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 4-6 chicken pieces)
6-8 slices Swiss cheese
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1/2 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt
3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, divided
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions:

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

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 and top with remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.

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