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.
