My idea for this recipe came after trying a new deli in downtown San Diego, where Kurt ordered his favorite sandwich, the reuben.

We got talking about what an odd combination corned beef, thousand island dressing, swiss cheese and sauerkraut was, but how it worked so perfectly together.

That’s when I started thinking, a reuben doesn’t just have to be a sandwich, it could be a dip or chicken or pizza, and the ideas started flowing!

While I still think reuben pizza needs to happen in the near future, today I’m excited to share this reuben chicken recipe.

It combines all of the delicious flavors of a reuben sandwich into a scrumptious baked chicken recipe that’s easy to make in just one pan in 45 minutes!
