  • 3 whole chicken breasts, boned, skinned, and split
  • 6 slices Swiss cheese
  • 4 ounces mushrooms, sliced (optional)
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup white wine (or 1/4 cup milk and 1/4 cup water)
  • 2 cups herb stuffing mix
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9-inch by 13-inch baking dish.

Place the chicken in a single layer in the baking dish. Top each piece with a slice of cheese. Sprinkle the mushrooms over the cheese. Mix together the soup and wine and pour over the chicken. Spread the dry stuffing mix over the top. Drizzle the melted butter over the stuffing. Bake, uncovered, for 50 minutes. Serve hot.

    I tried this recipe for a staff Christmas party. It was very simple to put together when I had a short time to prepare it. It looked and smelled wonderful when I took it out of the oven. I had many raves about how good it tasted. I would recommend it to anyone, especially if you need something that does not require much preparation. That is my kind of meal!
