Veezie's Easy Peasy Swiss Cheese Chicken

Veezie's Easy-Peasy Swiss Cheese Chicken


* 4 boneless chicken breasts
* 1 can cream of chicken soup
* ¼ cup water
* 1 package Stove Top chicken stuffing
* ½ cup melted butter
* Swiss cheese slices


* Arrange the chicken in a 13×9 pan sprayed with Pam.
* Place a slice of Swiss cheese on each chicken breast.
* Mix water and soup together and pour on top of chicken.
* Sprinkle dry stuffing mix on top of chicken.
* Drizzle butter evenly over the top.

My notation for this recipe: This was just yummy!
It was a definite two thumbs up and very easy to modify for two. Try it; you'll like it!

Oh my! Manuela just mentioned in comments that Stove Top stuffing has a lot of sodium. I checked! Yes! TOO much.

The next time I make this recipe, I'll be trying the following recipe for the stuffing mix. Way less sodium!

Home Made Instant Stuffing

6 cups cubed bread
3 tsp. vegetable, chicken or beef bouillon granules or 3 cubes
1/4 cup dried minced onion
1/2 cup dried minced celery
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. sage
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350*F. Bake bread cubes for 8 to 10 minutes or until dry. In a large bowl, toss bread with remaining ingredients until evenly coated. Store in airtight container. It will keep for 1 to 4 months or 12 months frozen.
To prepare, combine 2 cups stuffing mix with 1/2 cup water and 2 Tbls. melted butter.

Yields about 7 cups


Thanks, Manuela! I appreciated the head's up.

And now, just because I have a better pic of my beloved...

Disclaimer: This man has gazillion shirts! Why he always settles on this one... Must be a comfort thing.

Thanks to Miss Sandy's offering this dish for supper tonight at the Quill, I have photos to share.

Yummmmmmm, makes me want to make it all over again. Thanks so much, Miss Sandy!


  1. Looks yummy! Cooking for 2 is tough. Shopping for 2 is tough. When we lived near my kids I could still buy the big bags and share and cook and share. I now share the leftovers with our freezer!

  2. Looks super easy! I love stove top stuffing, I know it's full of sodium but I love it! I'll give this one a try - thanks!


  3. My family will love this one. Do you have an "after baked" photo?

    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Vee,
    Your husband looks happy that you are making this recipe. I have to try this, I am all for Easy Peasy.

  5. Oh that sounds soooo good! And thank you for the non sodium dry stuffing recipe too!

  6. This will definately go on my "to try" list. My family is not crazy about chicken, so any recipe that has lots of tasty ingredients to cover up the chicken taste is good.(even if it has a little too much salt)Thanks for sharing!

  7. Thanks for another must try recipe. I love finding new ways of fixing old favorites! I have all the ingredients on hand for this one and it may just be Sunday dinner! Thanks Vee and have a great Saturday!

  8. It looks great, Vee - I can try this too! And your beloved has such a lovely smile!

  9. Mmmm sounds good.
    Hubby is sooo cute! LOL

  10. You know that 'easy peasy' went out the window when your tossed the Stovetop, right? I am not that great at reading all the fine print...and sometimes that's OK...like when you want 'easy peasy'. I make a 'chicken bruschetta bake' (Kraft recipe) that also uses Stovetop...and I'll likely just keep using it (salt & all) since it is yummy...and easy peasy.

    I had to laugh about John's shirt...since I occasionally make one of my hubby's shirts disappear for a spell when I get tired of it. (I know he will never get tired of it!)

  11. I have made this many times and it is always a hit. The bonus is that it is also easy.

  12. Hee hee...I loved your post today. Such a great 'homey' feeling...cooking with you, visiting and photos...grin. Even a fashion note there! Yes, do you have a photo of the 'finished' product? It sure sounds yummy and easy too. Thanks for sharing Vee

  13. That looks like a great recipe Vee. I will try it for sure. I'm sitting here giggling about what you said about your husband and his shirts. My hubby is the same way. I will never understand :>)

  14. Vee,
    I am trying it! Right now it is in the oven, I'll pop back over after sampling! Smells heavenly!

  15. Ahhhhhhhhh yes! Hold the salt! Bahhh humbug!

    And hold a lot of other things, around here. Bahhhhh humbug!

    -grumble, grumble, grumble- -giggles-

    And more giggles at the issue of 'same shirt in pics.' A comfort thing!

    But one might say, that the photographer always picks the day he wears _this_ shirt, to photograph him. ,-)

    And an inside Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Until you open a properly written one. :-)

    Lots of hugs,
    Aunt Amelia

  16. Looks like you've made him happy! Very yummy! Way to go!

  17. Hi Vee, thanks for the addendum. I'm actually going to make this for dinner tomorrow (with the stove top because I have a few boxes of it :-)


  18. Looks sooo good!! I think I might try it with Pepperidge Farm stuffing mix and use low sodium chicken broth instead of water- Also low sodium, Healthy Request Chicken Soup. Anyway, it looks delicious! Also, I always use Sea Salt (RealSalt brand) which I buy at Whole Foods Market. I've read that it isn't so bad for the blood pressure.

  19. Just went and saw the edit on your recipe. It looked yummy when I saw it the first time but knew I could not have all the sodium in Stove Top. Appreciated the option you posted! Also appreciated the Sunday post- what a blessing your honesty is. I heard and felt that still small voice in church this morning. I am feeling so blessed in our new church home!

  20. It looks wonderful - one never knows just how much sodium is in packaged foods and even drinks until we teach ourselves to look - I love Mr. & Mrs. T's Bloody Mary mix (non-alcohol) for the spice flavor is has rather than plain tomato juice - UNTIL I saw the sodium content! Over the top! It's Spicy V-8 for me know! :-(

  21. Good thoughts on Sunday Vee. He always does care doesn't He! And the Lord is always answering prayer, working what is good for us, His beloved. To believe anything less would be to diminish His character! How good He is even when I don't credit Him for all He deserves!
