Swiss Chicken and Orzo Casserole

October 22, 2013 by quilt32

This is a creamy, delicious casserole dish that was inspired by Creamy Swiss Cheese Chicken Bake on Mel’s Kitchen Café, adapted to make the recipe easier and in a smaller amount, but with the same cheesy flavor.


1 cup dry orzo pasta [133 g]
1 cup shredded cooked chicken breast [150 g]
4 slices Swiss cheese (approx. 4×4 inches)
½ cup light mayonnaise [112 g]
½ cup light sour cream [112 g]
¾ cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided [68 g]
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Spray a 9×9 baking pan

Cook orzo in boiling salted water according to package instructions. Drain but do not rinse. Lay the orzo in a layer on the bottom of the baking pan. Top with the cooked, shredded chicken breast and then with the slices of Swiss cheese.

In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, ½ cup of Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Spread this mixture over the mixture in the casserole.

Top with the remaining ¼ cup of Parmesan cheese.

Bake uncovered @ 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.

YIELD:4 servings
