I forgot how much I love this simple recipe!

My mom used to make this recipe for our family a lot while I was growing up. I don't know what the actual name of the recipe is.  All I know is that it is my FAVORITE way to eat chicken, so we started calling it "My Favorite Chicken".  I haven't made it in a really long time, until Buddy asked for me to make it this week.

He said, "Would you make my favorite chicken?"

I said, " do you want me to fix it?" 

He said, "You know....My Favorite Chicken!!"  Took me a minute to realize he wanted me to make here's a picture recipe for you!

My Favorite Chicken:

First, take 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (or however much chicken you need for your family).  I actually used chicken tenders.

Next, cover all the chicken with Swiss cheese.

Then, take 1 can of cream of chicken soup (or 2 cans if you used more chicken), and enough water to rinse out the can. Stir the soup and water together and pour over chicken.

Finally, add bread crumbs, crushed crackers, or breaded stuffing mix to the top for a crust. I used Pepperidge Farm Stuffing (blue bag) for my topping.

Bake this at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour, or until chicken is done.

I served this with rice and green beans. It was so nice to have this meal after such a long time. I had forgotten how simple and easy this recipe is and  how yummy it tastes. I'll be eating the leftovers for lunch later today!!

That's my mom's chicken casserole recipe - she just poaches the chicken, chops it up, then covers it with the rest of the ingredients. Love it!

Glad you were able to have "my favorite chicken" for your supper. We had it for Sunday lunch not to long ago and it tasted so yummy because we had not had it in a long time.
