All we gotta say is Chicken on a Kaiser, well… NOT on a Kaiser, but it’s pretty darn close. A Swiss Chalet Chicken inspired pizza was even better than we expected. We didn’t have a rotisserie handy but we oven roasted this bad boy and it was perfect. Tasty, juicy, tender and packed full of great nostalgic flavors from the one and only Swiss Chalet.
You either know it or you don’t. But if ya don’t know now ya know. Reminiscent of late nights and cold bubbly refreshments. Ring any bells? With the cold refreshments it’s possible the memories may be hazy. But never fully forgotten, not this bird!
