Recipe Rating for Chicken Recipe

3.5 stars from 13 ratings of Chicken Recipe

We have chicken for dinner several times a week, and I'm always on the lookout for an easy recipe and different ways to make chicken to add to my repetoire. This simple recipe certainly fits the bill. It’s prepared, baked, and served all in the same dish, so that scores big points for convenience and easy cleanup.

Another reason I like this particular casserole is because it's just as easy to make for a family dinner as it is to make for a crowd for a party. For a party, you would just double or triple the recipe. And to make party cleanup even faster, bake the chicken dinner casserole in disposable aluminum pans.

This simple recipe calls for only four ingredients, and best of all they are ingredients you can keep on hand all the time. To make this recipe, you'll need boxed stuffing mix, canned cream soup, cheese, and boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I always keep extra Stove Top stuffing mix and canned creamed soup on hand to make this recipe at a moment's notice. It's a quick, go-to chicken dinner when you just don't feel like thinking about what to make for dinner tonight. I also keep plenty of frozen chicken breasts in the freezer. I can whip this together and have it ready to go into the oven in about ten minutes. After you make this chicken dinner casserole a few times, it'll become as quick and easy for you to make, too! I bake it in a Pyrex dish about 13x9 size. The four recipe ingredients you'll need for this recipe are:

  • Boneless chicken breasts
  • Cream of broccoli soup
  • Sliced Swiss cheese
  • Stove-top stuffing mix

Secret Ingredient #1: Boneless Chicken Breasts

You can use fresh or frozen chicken breasts. If you use frozen you will have to cook the casserole for a longer period of time. You can buy frozen chicken breasts in the frozen food section at Walmart or Target in a 2.5lb package that's perfect for this recipe.

Secret Ingredient #2: Cream of Broccoli Soup

Actually, you can use any cream soup. At different times I've used cream of broccoli soup, cream of chicken soup and cream of mushroom soup. If you use cream of broccoli soup you might even want to add some cooked broccoli to your chicken dinner casserole before putting it in the oven. Sometimes I'll serve broccoli on the side when we have have this dish for dinner.

Secret Ingredient #3: Sliced Swiss Cheese

I suggest using pre-packaged deli slices of Swiss cheese because they are convenient and have a long shelf time in the refrigerator. Kraft and Land O' Lakes are two companies that offer the deli packages in the refrigerated section of your grocery store. You can also use a block of cheese like Cracker Barrel Baby Swiss and grate it for your casserole, it just takes longer and makes more work for you.

Secret Ingredient #4: Stove Top Stuffing Mix

Our family prefers the Stove Top Chicken flavored stuffing mix, but you can certainly use any of the Stove Top Stuffing Mix flavors for this recipe. Some of the other Stove Top flavors are cornbread, pork, turkey, and sage. Any of them would work well for this chicken dinner, it's a matter of personal preference.
