This cheesy Swiss Chicken Casserole has quickly become a family favorite in our house. The tasty chicken is covered with melty Swiss cheese. Then creamy chicken soup is poured over, and it’s all finished off with a crunchy stuffing topping. It’s flavorful, filling, and wonderfully comforting.

On top of that, this recipe is so easy to make. It’s perfect for days when you want a hearty dinner, but don’t want to spend your whole evening in the kitchen.

Swiss Chicken Casserole is so filling, that it can be a complete meal on its own. However, it’s also nice to pair with an equally easy side dish. You can toss together a nice side salad or cook up some Roasted Vegetables to go along with your easy chicken for a quick, balanced meal that you can make any night of the week.

COOKING TIPS

  • Prep time: Before starting the recipe, preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and grease a 9×13 inch casserole dish with nonstick spray or a little butter. Then slice the skinless chicken breasts into 1-inch bite-sized pieces.
  • Assemble: Lay a chicken base out over the bottom of the prepared casserole dish. Top the chicken off with a layer of Swiss cheese slices. In a separate bowl whisk together the cream of chicken soup and whole milk. Then pour the mixture over the chicken. Add the dry stuffing mix and melted butter to a bowl. Mix them together until well combined. Then sprinkle the stuffing over the casserole.
  • Bake time: Cover the dish with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Pause the baking time after that to uncover the super creamy chicken casserole. Then bake for another 10 minutes. Take from the oven and enjoy!

VARIATIONS

  • Vegetables: Toss any of your favorite frozen vegetables in with the chicken pieces. The casserole would taste great with peas, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, or corn. Mix the vegetables with the chicken to add some extra color, texture, and flavor to the dish.
  • Topping: You can add other ingredients to your crunchy stuffing topping. Sprinkle crushed crackers or chopped nuts over the top before baking.
  • Seasoned chicken: To experiment with the taste, you can also season chicken with black pepper, parsley, garlic powder, thyme, or paprika.
  • Cheese: This chicken casserole tastes absolutely divine with Swiss cheese, but you can also experiment with different cheese varieties. Cheddar, mozzarella, provolone, Pepper Jack, Monterey Jack, or Parmesan would also taste great.
  • Chicken Noodle Casserole: For a tasty chicken noodle casserole start cooking pasta towards the end of the casserole baking time. Shortcut noodles like egg noodles, penne, or rigatoni will work best. Once the casserole is done you can serve the cheesy chicken over a serving of pasta. It will make the dish more filling, and help the casserole go further if you’re feeding a big crowd.

  • Freeze: You can also seal the Swiss Chicken Casserole to freeze it. Put it all in the freezer together, or transfer it into meal-sized containers so that you can reheat one serving at a time.

  1. Love your recipes! I need a little clarification. For the stuffing mix, would I use something like Stovetop Stuffing or something like Pepperidge Farms/Mrs. Cubbison? I am leaning toward Stovetop because of the seasonings already being all there, but am not sure. Thanks in advance for your response.

  2. I made this last night with three variations: freshly grated swiss rather than slices; added a bag of frozen peas & carrots; and seasoned the chicken with a homemade blend of onion powder, garlic powder, thyme and a few other herbs. It was delicious!

  3. Since we’re not huge fans of anything cheddar, I will definitely be making this
    very soon. Looks so good and we love swiss. Thank you.

  4. I made this last night and it was a HUGE hit! I followed the recipe exactly, but with adding garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper. My husband requested that I make it again very soon ?

  5. What stuffing mix????? Do I mix/make my own? Do I buy it? I am confused. Your recipes leave out details that are important. I’m not sure I want your recipes. Not all there!

  6. Excellent! We only have this once a year due to high fat and sodium content. But, it is ? yummy. I will use unsalted butter next time as per your recipe. Thank you.

    1. We just happened to have all the ingredients, except we don’t eat cheese of any kind. We put the everything together and baked it with no cheese. Delicious! We are keeping this in rotation!

  7. I hesitate to make this recipe as I never have good luck reheating chicken and chicken dishes as they come out tasting “funny” and not good. Do you have any suggestions for reheating poultry without the gamy taste?
