Variations and Tips For Success

- Make sure to grease your baking dish or it can cause the chicken to stick.
- This is a creamy sauce, you could also swap chicken broth instead of water to richen the flavor.
- Make sure to place chicken in the bottom without overlapping if possible. That ensures all the piece of chicken bake evenly.

How To Make Swiss Chicken
The complete list of ingredients, quantities, and instructions can be found in the printable recipe card below.
Step One: Preheat the oven as directed and prep your 9×13 casserole dish. Set to the side.
Step Two: Place your raw chicken on the bottom of the casserole dish in an even layer.
Step Three: Top the chicken with Swiss cheese. Then, you will add the dry stuffing mixture all over the casserole.
Step Four: In a small bowl, you will add the cream soup with the water or milk. Mix well and then pour the mixture over the casserole, spreading it out evenly.
Step Five: Cover the casserole and bake as directed. Then, remove the foil and finish cooking until the chicken is fully cooked.
If you do not eat all the casserole, simply store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. Then reheat the leftovers in the microwave or warm it up in the oven. If you reheat in the oven, cover in aluminum foil to prevent the chicken from drying.
The chicken is done when you check the internal temperature, and the meat thermometer reads 165 degrees F. Now, make sure to check the thickest part of the chicken for an accurate read.
Stuffing on top of the chicken casserole will be slightly soft. If some pieces are sticking up they can become crunchy as it is baked. I find the stuffing tastes delicious with the chicken.
