Ingredients

  • 2.5 pounds chicken breasts boneless, skinless, cooked
  • 6 ounces Swiss cheese
  • ¼ cup red or white wine
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup 10.5-ounce can
  • 1 box stuffing 6 ounce box
  • 6 tablespoons butter melted

Instructions

  • In a skillet pan fry chicken with olive oil or butter until done over medium heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. About 8 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add chicken to a buttered baking dish. Place two slices of cheese on each piece of chicken.
  • In a bowl mix wine and cream of chicken soup. Pour mixture of chicken.
  • Top with stuffing and drizzle melted butter on top.
  • Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and serve.

Notes

  • Use a cast-iron skillet or oven-safe pan for a one-dish easy clean-up.
  • Use a good quality chicken. This will mean the chicken is tender and delicious
  • Use full-fat original ingredients for the best flavor. This is a comfort dish. Lower fat items will work however, you will get a creamier texture and the richest flavor with full-fat ingredients.
  • You can use white or red wine. White wine lends a light crisp flavor while red wine gives the dish a bolder rich flavor. Both are equally delicious.
  • If you don't cook with wine or do not have it, substitute with chicken broth or milk.
If you prefer to not cook the chicken before baking, you can prepare the casserole as instructed without precooking the chicken. Then cover the dish with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 20 minutes uncovered. Be sure to check the internal temperature of the chicken (Chicken should be cooked to 165°F).
