Yummy Pulled Chicken Suiza Sammies

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

Today’s recipe for pulled chicken suiza sammies is a Rachael Ray recipe that I saw adapted over at Taste and Tell.  She made the recipe more like what I would have done.

The original recipe called for crème fraîche and she changed it to sour cream.  This sandwich is quick to put together and it’s delicious.  This sandwich also has an interesting name.  From what I can tell, suiza is Switzerland in Spanish so I am guessing suiza is in the sandwich name because of the Swiss cheese.

With this sandwich you get a nice creamy chicken filling with a slight kick to it.  Yum!  This recipe made more than the four sandwiches stated in the  recipes.  You can get at least 6 maybe 8 sandwiches out of this recipe.  I also think the sandwiches would work best if the sandwich rolls were toasted so I had adjusted the recipe accordingly.

  5. I think the name derives from a popular texmex dish, Enchiladas Suiza. You are right that suiza means Swiss. According to wikipedia, they are named such because “the dish is topped with a white, milk or cream-based sauce, such as béchamel. This appellation is derived from Swiss immigrants to Mexico who established dairies to produce cream and cheese.” If you ever get a chance to try them in a border state restaurant, they are divine! They are my favorite enchiladas and I look forward to trying your variation.

  7. These look delicious. Except I don’t like red onion. Could I use green onion instead?
    Thanks for all of the great recipes!

  9. I made these tonight – delicious!
    I think my rotisserie chicken had a little less than yours so I just let the liquid simmer out. Made the chicken tender and flavorful.
    Thanks for the recipe!
