Chicken Casserole

This is an old family recipe that I learned from my grandma.

It is the perfect dish to take to someone who has just had a baby or someone who has just gotten out of the hospital because it is easy to be warmed up. You can even prepare it ahead of time and have them stick it in the oven.

This is also something you can prepare the night before and then stick in the oven when you get home from work. You will have a meal in about 30 minutes!



Ingredients

1 package of boneless skinless chicken breasts

1 can of cream of chicken soup

swiss cheese

1 stick of butter

2 cups of ready made stuffing crumbs



First cut the chicken into small, cube sized pieces and bake until done.


When the chicken is done baking, cover with a layer of swiss cheese.



Thin the soup with some milk and cover the cheese.




Cover with stuffing crumbs. You might use a little less than the 2 cups, just gauge for yourself how covered you prefer it. I like a lot of the stuffing crumbs on mine, but that is just my personal taste.


Melt one stick of butter.



Pour the melted butter over the casserole.



If you are going to prepare this the night before, save the butter step until right before you bake the casserole so the stuffing crumbs will not get soggy.

Bake covered at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. After the first 25 minutes, uncover the casserole and bake for about 5 more minutes or until you can see the cheese bubbling and the stuffing crumbs are crispy.


And here is the finished product!


This dish is really good served with salad or a vegetable like green beans.
