Quick, Easy, and OH-SO good

PhotobucketI'm no gourmet chef...my husband comes close but I'm more of a recipe girl.  I do well with baking because its pretty precise but I don't do well with those "little of this and little of that" recipes.  So...when I tell you this is quick and easy...trust me, it is.  Which is enough to make it a favorite in our house but when you throw in its amazing comfort food qualities...its a win-win in my book.  I should also admit that this has been a recipe my Grammy made and passed down to my mom so I have no idea what the name of it is...I just know its amazing!  So...here's how to make it happen:

First you'll need these few things:
* 2-3 chicken breasts
* Can of cream of chicken soup (plain or with herbs works great)
* Milk
* 1 stick of butter
* 2 cups of shredded swiss cheese
* 1 box of chicken stuffing (I'm a fan of Stove Top)

in case the visual is easier
Then you'll do this:
* Preheat your oven to 350
* Cut the chicken breasts into strips (or maybe just be smarter than me and buy tenderloins to start with) and layer on the bottom of the baking dish (I use a 9x9 stoneware baking dish)
* In a separate bowl, empty the cream of chicken soup and then re-fill can with milk and add to the bowl.  Mix with a wisk until well combined.
* Pour mixture over chicken
* Layer shredded swiss cheese over chicken mixture
* In a separate bowl, melt butter and then add stuffing to the bowl and mix together until stuffing is well coated.
* Place stuffing mixture on top of cheese
* Cover pan with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes or until chicken is cooked through
* Remove aluminum foil and bake uncovered for 10 more minutes to crisp up the stuffing
* Let cool for about 5 minutes and serve!!

the finished product - pure delight
This also makes really good leftovers...if there are any!

I'm like you, I bake way better than I cook, but this looks delicious! I'll have to try it, thanks for posting.

I have a similar recipe that adds 8 oz of sour cream to the cream of chicken and milk mixture. And mine doesn't have the swiss cheese, but who doesn't love some added cheese :) I'm definitely going to give this one a try! I'm a horrible cook so I love easy recipes like this. Thanks for sharing :)
