Swiss Chicken

Here is a recipe I came across that Rob and I are just loving, so I thought I would share:

Swiss Chicken

4 Chicken breasts
4 slices of swiss cheese
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1/4 C. milk
2 C. Stove Top
3T. butter

1. Take trimmed chicken breasts and pound them just until flat (this wasn't in the original recipe, but I happened to do it the first time I made this and didn't the second time and we both noticed a difference in our enjoyment of the meal- so I really recommend doing so!), then lay them in a glass casserole dish.

2. cover with swiss cheese (I really love my swiss cheese, so I double up on the cheese when I make it- again, I would recommend doing that too!).

3. mix the soup with the milk and then spoon over the chicken and cheese.

4. cover with the (unprepared) stuffing.

5. melt the butter and then drizzle over the top.

6.cover with foil and bake at 350 for 50 minutes.

Let's face it, this meal isn't going to win any gourmet awards but this is really yummy "comfort food" like stuff, the flavors of the chicken, swiss and stuffing really compliment each other. I also really like meals that only use one pan, so it gets a big plus from me that you don't have to brown the chicken (or otherwise cook it first) and the prep is so simple. It also speaks well for it that Rob really likes it and he is positively ALLERGIC to casseroles (he had some nasty casseroles as a kid due to a creative mom). So, he likes it enough to overlook the fact that it is one.
(He also will eat my chicken tortilla casserole though, because it's yummy too).

Oh, also- totally serve it with green beans. Green beans are the perfect side dish, in fact, I take the extra sauce and cheese stuff that's at the bottom of the pan and dump the extra green beans in there and stir it all up and eat it for lunch the next day or (more likely) as a midnight snack (too much information?) I suppose you could add them to the *whispers* casserole, but I cannot- as it might unlock some of those bad casserole memories from Rob's brain.
Apparently, most of those casseroles involved green beans and I believe him, as we currently house his mother's food storage in our basement and you would not believe the amount of green beans down there. But I digress.

You know what? Don't add the green beans to the dish, that even makes me icky, just serve them along side, but make sure you swirl them in the sauce when you eat them.

Thanks, I love trying new recipes. Especially easy ones! We'll let you know what we thought after we try it. Not a big stuffing fan but am willing to try it. I love green beans and am not against swirling them in the sauce, I do it with everything anyway. I'm totally a food mixer, except for jello and salad, those do not mix with anything.

We tried the recipe tonight, it was really good! We both liked it a lot. I served it with mashed potatoes and green beans and it was really good. OreIda steam n mash potatoes are the best invention ever!

Sounds really good and pretty easy. Me-likey. We will try it! Thanks for sharing.

Glad you tried it and liked it Haley, I was concerned you wouldn't because of your stuffing thing. I have thought about trying those potatoes thinking they were a good idea, but haven't gotten around to it yet. I'll have to pick some up and try them. I've never made a starch with this dish since it had the stuffing I gave myself a pass, but might have to try it now.

Sounds good. I know I won't have a problem with getting mom to try it. I sounds just like something she would like and go for. I too like swiss cheese a lot. Yum!

Emily said...

Sounds delicious. I have two boys at my house that would go nuts over something like this, I'm going to give it a shot,

Just visiting this blog after a long time away. Fun!

Lorri found this recipe (or something very similar) a long time ago and it's been a favorite around our place for many years. We call it Chicken and Stuffing. Anyway, we have it at least once and month, and it's been one of our main standbys for when we have people over, etc. Hope those who haven't tried it yet will and will love it!
