4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

8 slices Swiss cheese

1 (10.75 oz) can cream of chicken soup

1/4 cup milk

2 cups herb-seasoned stuffing mix

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted

Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish, optional)


Prepare: Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F and lightly greasing a 9x13-inch baking dish.

Layer Chicken: Place the chicken breasts in the prepared dish, ensuring they lay flat for even cooking. Flatten larger pieces as needed for uniform thickness.

Add Cheese: Cover each chicken breast with a slice of Swiss cheese, anticipating the creamy goodness to come.

Creamy Soup Mixture: Whisk together the cream of chicken soup and milk, then evenly pour this mixture over the cheese-topped chicken, enveloping it like a cozy, creamy blanket.

Stuffing Topping: Sprinkle the herb-seasoned stuffing mix over the soup layer, creating a crunchy, golden crust reminiscent of autumn leaves.

Butter Drizzle: Pour the melted butter over the stuffing, ensuring every nook and cranny is touched by its richness, akin to sunlight dappling through the trees.

Bake: Cook in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and the topping is crisped to golden perfection.

Rest and Serve: Allow the casserole to rest briefly before garnishing with parsley for a pop of color and serving.
