How to Make Swiss Chicken

This casserole is super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. In a large skillet, heat oil until hot. Pan-sear chicken breasts on both sides for 2 minutes. Melt butter in a baking dish and place chicken breasts on top of the butter. Top chicken with slices of swiss cheese. In a bowl, whisk together cream of chicken soup, garlic powder, pepper, and chicken broth. Pour the soup mixture over the chicken. Top the chicken with crushed croutons and bake until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165ºF.

Helpful Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • I use boneless skinless chicken breasts
    • You can use any cut chicken that you enjoy. Boneless chicken thighs and chicken tenders both work fine.
    • Adjust the cooking time to ensure an internal temperature of 165ºF.
  • I use Texas Toast croutons. You can use any flavor that you enjoy.
    • Can substitute a box of stuffing mix for croutons. Do not make the stuffing. Use the dry stuffing mix.
  • Can substitute white wine for chicken broth in the sauce.
  • You can use any flavor of condensed cream of soup. Cream of chicken soup, cream of mushroom soup, or cream of celery soup all work fine.
  • Can Swiss Chicken be made in advance? Yes! Assemble the casserole. Cover and refrigerate the casserole until ready to bake. You may need to add a few minutes to the cooking time if baking the chicken straight from the refrigerator.
  • Can Swiss Chicken be frozen? Yes! Assemble the casserole. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and aluminum foil and freeze. When ready to bake, thaw and bake as directed.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
