I have a huge chunk of swiss cheese. It must two or three pounds.

How could I use it? There is no way I would use that as sliced or chunked cheese and I am not having any get together to use it.

I also have an abundance of chunked chicken.

    You're so lucky! I miss that stuff everyday. I'd just eat it lol. You could make a fondue, cheese sauce with pasta, raclette (I don't think it really matters what kind of cheese you use). Mac and Cheese could be frozen.

    I rarely eat chicken but when I do it's on a stick with veggies. We call it Pinchos. Marinate with whatever flavour you like. Oregano and lemon and garlic for Greek, curry spices for Indian, etc.

    Well... I could eat a pound of Swiss cheese per meal.... so, my first suggestion is to mail it to me! But, how about fondue, fried cheese, cheese soup or chicken breasts pounded thin, stuffed with cheese and ham, breaded and deep fried? Maybe a spinach cheese casserole? How about a quiche? Swiss and either corn or cauliflower casserole would be good. You can also stuff a calzone with swiss instead of motz... pretty fantastic! Queso dip, stuffed peppers or onion soup... so many options

    I very much second @judsoncarroll4 suggestion of the Chicken Cordon Bleu. And the fondue & raclette that @Sharie has mentioned.

    I love Reuben sandwiches. Corned beef, sauerkraut and Swiss on rye. Mmmmm!

    You could grate it and freeze it in ziploc portions for later.

    Chicken on a stick can go with many cuisines.

    LOL When I first read you title I thought you were wanting to know how to make swiss cheese! I agree with @judsoncarroll4 's suggestions. Fondue was the first thing I thought of. His other suggestions sound really good too! My daughter would want to make Mac n Cheese out of it.

    I buy blocks of cheese and freeze them for later. I usually grate it once I defrost it. It's more crumbly than fresh so you could grate it before freezing like @torey suggested. I also slice it & put it in burritos and things where people aren't going to see it.

    My main thought would be to eat it straight. And slice it and put it in sandwiches. And putting it in sauces, and....
