Savory Chicken Breasts

This recipe reminds me so much of a recipe that an old friend made for me "back in the day", so I was extremely excited to find it! I am a big fan of anything smothered in cheese--I mean really, how can you go wrong with that?!? My husband refuses to even try swiss cheese, so I used mozzarella for the majority of the chicken--I was afraid the swiss cheese might be too strong of a flavor for my kids, too! (Swiss is one of my favorite cheeses, so I used it for my chicken and was not the least bit disappointed!) I did make a few changes--I generously sprinkled garlic powder and onion powder over the chicken before adding the cheese. I added double the cheese to each piece of chicken and I also used Stove Top Stuffing Mix instead of breadcrumbs per some other reviewers advice--I combined the stuffing mix and melted butter before sprinkling them on top of the chicken. The only change I would make is to perhaps add a bit of garlic salt with the garlic powder. This dish would go wonderfully with rice or potatoes and your vegetable of choice!

Savory Chicken Breasts

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
ground black pepper to taste
4 slices Swiss cheese
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
1/4 cup milk
1 cup dry bread crumbs
3 tablespoons butter, melted


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place chicken breasts in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Season with ground black pepper to taste. Top each breast with a slice of cheese. Mix together the soup and milk and pour mixture over chicken. Sprinkle bread crumbs on top and drizzle with melted butter/margarine. Bake covered in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 20 minutes or until golden brown.
