My Daughter won't swallow her food

Picky Eater or something else? My Daughter who is 4 and a half years old has for the past 2 months increasingly become stubborn about swallowing certain foods. Things that are chewier, like chicken, beef , also crunchier consistencies will not get swallowed. She will chew it forever and keep it in her mouth. We are at our wits end, she keeps saying she is going to choke, but even if we reassure her, she still won't listen. We are concerned because she barely gets anything in and we have to plan for dinner softer baby-like foods. Help
