Swiss Chicken

I’m back. I survived the St. George marathon. It was brutal. It was unusually hot for this time of year and the heat sucked the life out of me. My Ipod froze right from the get go. It’s happened once before and decided to happen once again at the start of the marathon. I was stuck on two ABBA songs for the whole race. Uggghhh!

“Dancing Queen” isn’t exactly the best song to get you motivated. Guess I can check marathon off the bucket list. Check.

A lot of you guys emailed me and said you were running it too. How did you guys do?
My sister Shelly, my nephew Scott, and me
I swore at mile 24 that I would never run again. But…now I’m thinking of all the things that I could have done better and how I can shave off time next time….so I guess my marathon days may not be over.
Yes. I know. I need my head checked.
Since I still can barely walk because I’m so sore, I was thinking of an easy dinner that still tastes good. Even I can hobble around the kitchen to make this easy swiss chicken. It’s so simple but has great flavor. My sister has been making it for years but I saw it over at Real Mom Kitchen and was reminded of its yummy simplicity.
Swiss Chicken

Ingredients:
4 chicken breasts

6-8 slices Swiss cheese
1 can cream of mushroom soup (or cream of chicken)
1 cup milk
1 box Stove Top Stuffing
1/4 cup butter melted

Instructions:

1. Pound chicken breast to even out the thickness of the chicken. You can place the chicken between to layers of saran wrap and use a rolling pin or a meat mallet if you have one. If I buy the Costco chicken breasts I just slice them in half horizontally and skip the meat pounding step.
2. Place chicken breasts in a sprayed 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
3. Top chicken with the slices of Swiss cheese.
4. In a small bowl, mix soup and milk until well blended.
5. Pour soup mixture over chicken.
6. Top the chicken with the dry stuffing mix. Drizzle stuffing with melted butter.
7. Baked covered with foil at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.  Remove foil and bake 5-10 minutes longer. Serves 6-8.

  1. I just made this on Sunday when my daughter and family came by after church. A friend brought it to a pot luck dinner we had here last year and we all just loved it! Easy, yummy and comforting :)

  2. This is yummy. It is in one of my many church cookbooks. I think someone brought it to me once after having a baby.

  3. Congrats on the marathon…I’ve only accomplished a 5K! Blog looks cute and chicken casserole is pure comfort food :)

  4. Congratulations! Awesome accomplishment! You really deserve someone ELSE making you food. :-)

  5. i actually make this recipe but i use sour cream instead of milk. got it from a ward cookbook in utah. it is a fan fav here at my house..

  6. I love ABBA but not that much…YOU R AMAZING! Great job!

  10. Christy! Love the new look of the blog…and the cute chicky at the top TOTALLY looks like a cartoon YOU! And I have to say…Scott and I were taking bets that you would do another marathon! GO FOR IT! Scott’s trying to get me to do it next year…that may take a miracle!
    So fun to see you this weekend!
    Janece

  11. Christy, I had a few people from my ward just email me and tell me that they saw my picture on your website! Small world! Nice job on the marathon, you’re a real trooper and I am so proud to call you my Auntee! :) See you at St. George next year!

  12. congratulations on the marathon! once you do one…you will always want to do more. try the disney one in orlando!

    i love this recipe since it fits my critera of ~ 5 ingredients and 1-2 steps…. i use the small pieces of chicken (?chicken tenders?) and so skip any steps with manipulating chicken. works fine to start with frozen chicken as well.
    and its delicious- thanks for passing it on!

  13. I did try to look for you at the marathon even though you said not to. :) Shocking that I couldn’t spot someone I’ve never met when mixed in with 7,400 other people! ;) The heat SUCKED and it was a really hard race. I struggled…HARD core!

    Anyway, going to try out your new recipe as I pretty much trust ANYTHING that gets posted on your blog! yum!

  14. Wow. That is all I have to say about running a marathon. I don’t even have a bucket list, that way, I don’t have to worry about doing anything like that! :) Anyway, I never have heard of this one (big surprise since I have repelled cooking all of my life). I will definitely have to try this one.

  15. Congrats on your marathon run! What a great accomplishment! Also the new blog design looks great!

  16. Congrats on the marathon! That is fantastic! I fancy myself a runner too, I just don’t think I have it in me to do a full marathon though! After 13.1 my goose is cooked! That chicken looks great! I know I have made a slightly different version, but it has been a while.

  17. We love your recipes! My mom and I always come here and look up yummy recipes for baby showers, family dinners and much more! Thank you for sharing your talent!

  18. I cannot believe you ran a marathon and had the same 2 songs playing over and over again! You are one tough cookie! When I ran my 2 5K’s this year I had to have different songs playing! Go you!

  19. My Mom has made this dish for years. Always a favorite & delicious!1

  20. St. George is my home town. I miss lots of things about it but for sure the heat is not one of them. I admire you for running it, it would probably kill me.

  21. Question: when you say a can of mushroom (or chicken) soup, are you talking the little individual cans or the big, family size cans? I’ve got this wrong before and want to make sure.
