Dinner in Marksville

Hello everyone, had a rough night last night with Dorothy being ill, I stayed up all night with her, and then today I had my two grand daughters on top of having both Dorothy and Deanna home. Deanna is now sick and sleeping on the couch across from me.

I have been trying dinners out that can be frozen ahead of time but don't want to go and freeze four of something and find out no one likes it. Last nights dish was a success you can read about it here. Tonight we had Swiss Cheese Chicken but as you know I often change up the recipe to accommodate our family so the original is in black and ours is in red if it is changed.

INGREDIENTS:
4 Chicken Breasts (or enough to fill pan) we used 3 large breasts our store which is IGA has the best chicken that I have had since we raised our own chickens when I was growing up. 
6 Slices Swiss Cheese I used 8 slices of American Cheese it is all we had.
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
¼ cup milk 1/2 cup of milk
Stove Top Turkey Stuffing (about ½ box) Whole Box for us
¼ c butter
DIRECTIONS:
Cover bottom of pan with chicken.
Lay Swiss Cheese over chicken. we used american
Mix 1 can cream of chicken soup and ¼ cup milk. we used 1/2 cup of milk
Pour mixture over chicken.
Top with ½ bag (or more) of Stove Top Turkey Stuffing. we used a whole box 
Drizzle ¼ cup butter on top.
Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes.
Serve over rice.  We served ours along side long grain rice and mixed vegetable blend of broccoli, cauliflower and corn.

What our family thought about this dish. Another winner for the freezer meals. We talked about ways to change it up. My husband says when we freeze ours we are going to change up the mixture each time. One we are going to try is adding Ham before Swiss Cheese, Mushroom soup, then the rest of the ingredients to make a kind of Chicken Cordon Blue dish. You can do so many things with this recipe. Sorry I didn't snap a photo but if you follow the link above you will see how great it looks when it comes out of the oven. Super easy and yummy for your tummy.
