Chicken dishes are usually my go-to meals for weeknight dinners. They’re typically healthy and easy to throw together. This Malibu Chicken was a great way to change up chicken dinner night. It is one of the tastiest dishes I’ve made recently!

Crispy baked chicken with layers of ham and Swiss cheese. The honey mustard sauce to dip it in is beyond delicious. It’s fancy enough to serve to guests, and easy enough for a simple family dinner. So flavorful and delicious. My entire family loved this one! 🙂

  1. Malibu chicken!!!!!!!!!! We use to get this at our neighborhood steak place 25 years ago! I copied it and serve it still. Yummy stuff. Thanks for bringing back old memories!

  2. I just made this chicken on the weekend and it was very good. I only had regular panko so I added some Italian seasoning to it as a substitution. This recipe is a keeper 🙂

    I love this recipe! I made it for a group of 20 people last week, and I received so many compliments on it, as well as requests for the recipe. Thanks for the great ideas. I have made several things from this site, and they always turn out great!
