This past November, I went to my monthly cooking class. It was just the start of the holiday season and I was excited to see what we would be making and later eating. When we began the main entree, I knew right away that this dish was something I could not wait to make. And then I tasted it and I just about died. It was seriously so good!
I put it on my weekly menu for the following week and can you believe, between one thing or another, I never ended up making it until last week!
It was so worth the wait! I made it early in the morning, because you know, we’re living in the clouds these days and the best time for foodie pics is during the morning/early afternoon. I wasn’t to worried about how it would reheat because I remember Lisa saying while we were making it that, it made great leftovers and the leftovers from that cooking class, she was going to bring to a couple who had just had a baby in their church. (They didn’t have the baby in the church, the couple, goes to the church.)
It literally just took a few minute to pull together and within an hour, it was done baking and my whole house smelled amazing! We reheated it later that evening in the oven and it was still beautiful and still delicious and Christian went nuts over it. In fact, we had just enough leftover for him to have another night for dinner.
This Swiss Chicken dinner, is easy and beautiful and a really pretty perfect entree to serve if your having company over. They will think you slaved over the meal for hours, when it probably took more like 10 minutes to prepare. If you don’t believe me, go ahead and try it! Your family will devour this!

Are you supposed to cook the stuffing before? My daughter who loves your recipes found this one and is going to try and make it tonight. Love these littles cooking so much lately

Hi Kara, thanks for the sweet comment! I'm so glad your daughter is enjoying our recipes. The stuffing goes into the casserole dish uncooked. Everything cooks together - making it super easy for whoever is cooking. I hope you all enjoy it - it's one of our favorites. :)

I've made this before. It is so easy and super yummy! I substituted chicken broth for the sherry, as my clan did not care for the taste of it made with sherry. I keep several boxes of stuffing on hand just so I can make this at a moments notice. Quick, easy, and delicious!

Chicken broth or cream of sherry (which isn't as tart) are great alternatives. So glad you all like it!
