Ingredients for Baked Chicken Reuben

This is one of the easiest “it’s so easy even I’ll make it” recipes ever. Just 5 simple ingredients and you have a delicious meal.

You should use thin chicken breast or chicken breast tenders for this dish. In addition, you want to be sure the sauerkraut is drained and very dry, because you don’t want to much liquid. I use a paper towel to squeeze out any excess moisture.


First, just layer all the ingredients in a oblong baking dish to create this easy Baked Chicken Reuben. .

Begin with a single layer of thin chicken breasts or breast tenders. If your chicken breasts are very thick, you can easily slice them in half.

Then cover the chicken with the sauerkraut and divide the cheese slices so that they cover the entire top of the sauerkraut.

Finally, spread the 1000 island salad dressing evenly over the cheese for the last layer.

Garnish if desired

Once the Reuben is cooked, you can garnish with fresh parsley if desired.
