This turned out GREAT but I did make some modifications. Substituted muenster for the swiss, increased milk to 1/2 cup, and added 1/4 c. dry sherry to the soup/milk mixture. Sprinkle chicken generously with garlic powder, poultry seasoning and some black pepper before placing cheese on top. Pour sauce mixture evenly over and then top with 1 1/2 cups Stove Top Stuffing mix(chicken flavor) mixed with melted butter. Followed baking directions as written. Sprinkled some grated parmesan over the top for last 5 minutes of baking. Also, using lowfat evaporated milk is a great way to cut some fat and get a real creamy result.

Not bad, I read some reviews and made some changes. Used 2 lg cans of cr of mush soup and some milk to make extra sauce and served with egg noodles. Also used the stuffing instead of bread crumbs and doubled the cheese. Hard to tell if the chicken was done because it was smothered. Not bad though. Oh, also seasoned the chicken with onion salt, pepper and minced garlic.

Very delicious!! After reading reviews I decided to add two pieces of swiss and I used 2 cans of cream of chx and mushroom soup. One can of soup didnt seem to cover all the chicken. I also topped heavily with chicken flavored stove top stuffing mix instead of the bread crumbs. That added alot of flavor. The only thing I will do differntly next time is use the low sodium cream chx/mush soup. My family absolutely loved it. The melted swiss chees and soup combo couldnt of been tastier. Will definetly make again!!

This recipe has turned out to be the basis for one of our favorite recipes. I, like many others, have made some changes to the base recipe. I use combinations of soups to get different flavors. My favorites are the Cream of Chicken Soup with Herbs combined with Cream of Mushroom with Roasted Garlic. I also use sour cream instead of milk with the soups. I add some dried lemon peel and top it off with poppy seeds, Cheddar Fried Onions, and grated sharp cheddar cheese. I'd tried it with crumbled Ritz crackers, and I loved it, but my husband is not fond of the Ritz on oven-baked foods. No matter how you flavor it, these chicken breasts always come out juicy and tender. Thanks!!!

This is a great, easy recipe with endless variations. Here's how I did mine: I rinsed two chicken breasts, split them length-wise, placed them at the bottom of a le creuset French oven (it's all I have, but it worked just fine anyway), threw some minced garlic and fresh black pepper in there, layered ripped slices of Swiss cheese over the chicken, spread the condensed soup over it, poured about 1/3 cup of milk on top of that and then an equal amount of water on top of that before pouring a bag of stuffing on top. Then I left it in the oven covered for 40 minutes, removed the cover and poured a bit of melted butter over the stuffing, and let it cook for another 20 minutes. The stuffing cooks completely through without being dry, and while not excessively saucy, the chicken is moist and terrific with some plain rice and a side of grean beans. My boyfriend and I had enough for two dinners (it was even better the second day). I would have added a little white wine with the water, but I didn't have any on hand. Still, a yummy, easy, one dish meal, definitely worth trying.

This recipe turned out amazing. My family and friends love it!! They all want the recipe. I made a couple of changes however, I used more seasoing on the chicken breasts. I used salt, pepper, seasing salt, and garlic powder on both sides of the meat. I also put the one cup of bread crumbs inside the butter and then sprinkeled it evenly over the chicken. The chicken came out very moist. If I could give this recipe ten stars I would.

This was delicious but next time I make it I will mix the bread crumbs into the melted butter and then sprinkle it over.

This is a recipe that we have had time and time again. Its always great! Something we like to do because we always have a lot of extra sauce is serve it over fettucini noodles. YUM!
