With school starting back up last month it has been a little hectic around our house to get back in the routine of things. However with the kids having school, extra curricular activities, our family having animals to take care of (both dogs and horses), homework and then dinner time – it is imperative that we stay on a schedule and keep things running smoothly. Plus this year the kids are determined to take their lunches every day of the week and since I want them to eat something more than a PB&J sandwich, I stay pretty active in the kitchen.
I love scouring the internet for easy to fix casserole recipes. When I stumbled upon Swiss Chicken Casserole on AllRecipes.com I knew I had to try it.
The ingredients list was simple:
6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
6 slices Swiss cheese
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
- 1/4 cup of milk
- 2 cups herb-seasoned stuffing mix
- 1/4 cup butter
I made the recipe for 7 so I slightly increased the ingredients. My baking dish had plenty of room for 7 chicken breasts and the other ingredients which served as the toppings easily covered that extra piece.
I prefer using Country Crock when my recipes call for butter.

The family loved the dish. They thought the casserole turned out amazing and have requested having it again. My only complaint was I didn’t think the stuffing mix was soft/moist enough. The next time around I will either use Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs so the topping pieces are not as large, therefore baking more into the chicken and evenly or I will put the can of soup on top of the stuffing mixture instead of underneath it. Some of the pieces were still slightly crunchy which the kids liked because it reminded them of croutons. I just don’t believe that’s what the recipe was going for. I love various cheeses so I may even try mozzarella next time around.
We added a little Country Crock to our potatoes. I’m not big on salt so the Country Crock provided the flavor we needed to plain mashed potatoes.
The next casserole we plan to try is the Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake. Which is your favorite casserole to prepare during the school year?
