Preheat oven to 350.
Arrange chicken in baking dish.
In skillet whisk flour into drippings.
Cook, stirring constantly for about a minute.
Gradually add milk and cook until smooth and thick (stirring constantly!)
Remove from heat and add in Swiss cheese.
Pour sauce over chicken.
Top with parm cheese if you choose.
Sprinkle bread crumbs on top.
Bake for 45 mins. or until chicken is tender and juices run clear.

Frito Pie:
1lb. ground beef, browned and drained.
1 bag Fritos
8oz. shredded cheddar cheese
jar tomato sauce/spaghetti sauce
1pkg taco seasonings if you choose (I do not use)
1pt. sour cream if you choose (I do not use)

Mix ground beef with tomato sauce (and taco seasoning if you like)
In 9x13 cass. dish lay out a layer of Fritos, cover with ground beef mixture.
Sprinkle cheddar cheese over top.

You can make this a multiple layer pie if you choose.
