Chicken Challenge Day 5: Swiss Chicken Bake

We are continuing this week with the final days of my Chicken Challenge!  I hope you are getting motivated so far to try some new chicken recipes for supper.

  My family enjoyed ALMOST everything about this dish!  They could’ve done without the top layer, you decide for your family which way to make it….

It is pictured without the topping.
