Creamy Swiss Chicken Casserole is as delicious as it is simple! This is a quick & easy dinner recipe that’s perfect for a busy weeknight.
Creamy Swiss Chicken Casserole
When it comes to making up easy and filling weeknight dinners, I’m usually reaching for chicken. It’s packed with protein and cooks fairly easy- especially with simple prep methods like casseroles or bakes. I usually end up making some variety of a Creamy Chicken Casserole. One of the new favorites that I’ve made recently was this Creamy Swiss Chicken Casserole.
Chicken and Swiss is already a delicious combo that I love on something like a sandwich- it makes sense that they would work together in a casserole. Besides those two, I’ve also brought some go-to creamy casserole ingredients: cream of chicken and a bit of milk. All these come together to make a delicious casserole filling and some boxed stuffing mix makes for a great topping!
This Creamy Swiss Chicken Casserole was delicious! That creamy casserole filling came out perfectly, the chicken stayed nice and moist, and that stuffing crisped up great. It was almost shocking how delicious it turned out, considering how easy prep was. I’m definitely keeping this recipe on standby if I’m needing an easy dinner- give it a try and I’m certain you will too! Hope you enjoy it.

Swiss Chicken Bake Ingredients
Cream of Chicken Soup
Milk – You could sub this out for some chicken stock, or- in a pinch- some water.
Boxed Stuffing Mix – We’d recommend going with a chicken flavor or a more neutral flavor.
How to make Creamy Chicken Casserole
Place your chicken in the bottom of a baking dish and top with swiss cheese slices.
Mix together the cream of chicken, milk, and onion before adding to the baking dish.
Top your Creamy Swiss Chicken Casserole with boxed stuffing mix before baking until chicken is cooked through and stuffing has browned.
After spraying a baking dish with some nonstick spray, add your chicken breasts and top each breast with a slice of swiss cheese. Set aside and grab a mixing bowl. To it, add your cream of chicken soup and whatever liquid you’re using- milk, broth, water, etc.
Mix those together until thoroughly combined into a smooth, consistent liquid. While this creamy broth would be good enough on its own, we’re going to add onions. Give an onion a quick dicing.
Whisk your chopped onion into your broth. Also consider adding in frozen vegetables like carrots, peas, or green beans for an entire meal.
Now, pour your soup mixture over into the baking dish with our chicken and cheese.
Now we’re going to top our casserole off with some boxed stuffing mix. Sprinkle the dry stuffing over the casserole until you’ve got a consistent topping laid.
All that’s left is to bake our Creamy Swiss Chicken Casserole. Cover and transfer to a 350 degree oven. Let that bake for 40-45 minutes before uncovering and letting bake for another 15-20 minutes. Removing the cover allows that stuffing to brown up real nice!
Once that stuffing has browned and the chicken is cooked through, the casserole is done! To check the chicken, poke a food thermometer down to the chicken at the bottom. Use a spatula to lift one of the chicken breasts out from the bottom. Top with a bit more of the casserole fillings and enjoy!
What to serve with our casserole?
We’d recommend keeping your sides simple to keep things low-stress and low-effort. Of course, we also have the sides recommended at the top- easy roasted sides that work perfectly with this dish! Besides those, maybe some simple steamed broccoli, canned veggies, or mashed potatoes?
