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!
