Chicken and Swiss Casserole

December 03, 2012

After our marshmallow fluff extravaganza last week, I thought posting something a bit less-sugar-inducing overload would be a pretty good idea.  Don't worry..more sugary love is coming later this week.

Here is a good break from all the sugar of the season, a casserole that is a perfect dish for weeknight dinner  Don't you love those?  Mix your ingredients, pour into a dish, bake.  Simple! And..this is really delicious.

It's a creamy, with a bit of crunch and and the Swiss cheese is just a perfect punch of flavor.  Comfort food at its best.

  6. Very yummy, Erin! I used Hellman's Real Mayo, and topped the casserole off with dry Stove Top stuffing mix for chicken. Next time I'll add in some cubed ham, so it will taste almost like a Chicken Cordon Bleu. A Helpful Hint: I like to use (light) evaporated milk in casseroles which call for milk, since it makes casserole nice & creamy, but doesn't give them a weird flavor. Thanks for your terrific recipes. Also, I enjoyed the photos of your lovely family.
