Swiss Chicken Casserole is so easy!

Swiss Chicken Casserole The Southern Lady Cooks


My family loves this Swiss chicken casserole. It takes no time to prepare and is wonderful comfort food. This recipe makes the perfect weeknight dinner.  You could make this dish with any part of the chicken. You don’t have to use chicken breasts. Throw this casserole together when you have a busy evening planned. You won’t be sorry.

Ingredients Needed for Swiss Chicken Casserole:

Chicken breasts, boneless and skinned

Swiss cheese

Cream of chicken soup

Onion, chopped

Can of mushroom pieces


Black pepper

Rubbed sage

Ground mustard

Campbell’s chicken gravy

Box of chicken flavored stuffing mix (I used Kroger brand)


Recipe Notes: You could easily use chicken thighs in this recipe. You could also use cheddar cheese or mozzarella. We have not tried this dish in the crockpot but do feel it would work fine.

Recipe Comments: “I made this a couple of days ago, It is “out of this world delicious”!! The only change I made was…lightly seasoned the chicken with black pepper, garlic powder and seasoned salt.”-Gayle

“Love this easy casserole! It’s become a family staple.”-Julie

If you like this easy casserole, you may want to try our chicken noodle casserole. It’s simple to prepare and has great reviews!

Note.. I put the chicken on top of the stuffing mix, so it would show in the photo. You can make it this way or the way it is stated in the recipe card.

  1. Looks delicious and I want to make it soon! I have a question about the cook time. The recipe title says cook time 20 minutes but the actual recipe says 60 minutes. I will be using boneless skinless chicken thighs. Thank you

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Hi Hayley, I’ve fixed the recipe. You’ll want to cook this for around 60 minutes. However, thighs will cook quicker so you’ll need to watch it and probably bake it for less time. Thanks!

  2. Teresa Maxey says:

    Did you put the stuffing on top of the chicken or under it? It appears that the stuffing is in the bottom but the instructions say put the stuffing on top. Looks wonderful!

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Please follow the directions. We simply did this so you could see the chicken in the photo. Thanks!

  3. Gayle Betts says:

    I made this a couple of days ago, It is “out of this world delicious”!! The only change I made was…lightly seasoned the chicken with black pepper, garlic powder and seasoned salt (just a dash of salt, due to sodium in the cheese, soup and gravy)..5 stars

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I am so glad you enjoyed it Gayle!

  4. Was wondering today what to do with some chicken tenders in my freezer and this looks like a winner! Will be on the table for dinner one evening next week.

  5. Alice Smith says:

    I will make this tomorrow, but will brown my chicken in frying pan first

  6. Betty Ferguson says:

    I made something very similar to this, but I put onion, celery, chopped apples and craisins in the stuffing, put 1/2 the stuffing on the pot of the baking dish, then put the chicken (I actually used Pork Chops), swiss cheese, soup and then topped with the rest of the stuffing. YUMMY!5 stars

  7. Janna Williams Smith says:

    I made this yesterday, and everyone loved it. Here’s what I did differently: since my mom is 87 and has arthritis and trouble cutting meat, I cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces first, and sprinkled shredded swiss cheese over them, then finished the recipe as written.She appreciates a dish she can eat without having to ask someone to cut her meat for her. Thanks for a very tasty recipe!!5 stars

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I am happy your Mom and your family enjoyed this recipe. Sounds like another great way to serve it, too. Thanks for your comment.

    2. That is a great idea. I have son who hates meat on a bone….yes I know
      kind of strange. He would eat the whole dish.

  8. Made this (with a few changes ;)) yesterday. It was very good! Thanks for sharing.5 stars

  9. I may have to make this soon myself! My daughter loves Stove Top stuffing, so she’d probably really enjoy this recipe. In fact I may just get the ingredients and let her try making it herself since she’s becoming quite the cook! 🙂

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Hi Jillian, Don’t you just love it that she likes to cook. Both my girls cook and my 4 yr. old grandson is now taking an interest in it, too. I think it’s great.

  10. The Better Baker says:

    MMMM! This sounds sooo delicious. We would definitely enjoy this dish. I’m ‘pinning’ it to make one day soon. Thanks Judy!
