Swiss Chicken Recipe - The Girl Who Ate Everything (1)


I’m back. I survived the St. George marathon. It was brutal. It was unusually hot for this time of year and the heat sucked the life out of me. My Ipod froze right from the get go. It’s happened once before and decided to happen once again at the start of the marathon. I was stuck on two ABBA songs for the whole race. I officially never want to hear ABBA again.

“Dancing Queen” isn’t exactly the best song to get you motivated. Guess I can checkmarathon off the bucket list. Check.

A lot of you guys emailedme and said you were running it too. How didyou guysdo?

I swore at mile 24 that I would never run again. But…now I’m thinking of all the things that I could have done better and how I can shave off time next time….so I guess my marathon days may not be over.

Yes. I know. I need my head checked.Swiss Chicken Recipe - The Girl Who Ate Everything (4)

Since I still can barely walk because I’m so sore, I was thinking of an easy dinner that still tastes good. Even I can hobble around the kitchen to make this easy swiss chicken. It’s so simple but has great flavor. My sister has been making it for years but I saw it over at Real Mom Kitchen and was reminded of its yummy simplicity.Swiss Chicken Recipe - The Girl Who Ate Everything (5)

    Is the top supposed to be crunchy? I’ve made this many times and the top has always been crunchy. I thought the stuffing mix would soften a bit, but it doesn’t. Even if I cover with foil when baking. Just wondering. I love this recipe anyway!

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Hmm not super crunchy but yes some texture

    Thanks for the tip on cutting the Costco chicken horizontally! Worked great and less messy than pounding those thick things, lol!

    Question: when you say a can of mushroom (or chicken) soup, are you talking the little individual cans or the big, family size cans? I’ve got this wrong before and want to make sure.

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} Reply

      I’m talking the little cans (10 3/4 ounce).

    St. George is my home town. I miss lots of things about it but for sure the heat is not one of them. I admire you for running it, it would probably kill me.

    My Mom has made this dish for years. Always a favorite & delicious!1

    I cannot believe you ran a marathon and had the same 2 songs playing over and over again! You are one tough cookie! When I ran my 2 5K’s this year I had to have different songs playing! Go you!

  7. jenna♥devon Reply

    We love your recipes! My mom and I always come here and look up yummy recipes for baby showers, family dinners and much more! Thank you for sharing your talent!

    Congrats on the marathon! That is fantastic! I fancy myself a runner too, I just don’t think I have it in me to do a full marathon though! After 13.1 my goose is cooked! That chicken looks great! I know I have made a slightly different version, but it has been a while.

  9. Heather Reply

    Congrats on your marathon run! What a great accomplishment! Also the new blog design looks great!

    Wow. That is all I have to say about running a marathon. I don’t even have a bucket list, that way, I don’t have to worry about doing anything like that! 🙂 Anyway, I never have heard of this one (big surprise since I have repelled cooking all of my life). I will definitely have to try this one.

  11. Drew and Tarah Reply

    I did try to look for you at the marathon even though you said not to. 🙂 Shocking that I couldn’t spot someone I’ve never met when mixed in with 7,400 other people! 😉 The heat SUCKED and it was a really hard race. I struggled…HARD core!

    Anyway, going to try out your new recipe as I pretty much trust ANYTHING that gets posted on your blog! yum!

  12. Sarah Reply

    congratulations on the marathon! once you do one…you will always want to do more. try the disney one in orlando!

    i love this recipe since it fits my critera of ~ 5 ingredients and 1-2 steps…. i use the small pieces of chicken (?chicken tenders?) and so skip any steps with manipulating chicken. works fine to start with frozen chicken as well.
    and its delicious- thanks for passing it on!

  13. Scott Reply

    Christy, I had a few people from my ward just email me and tell me that they saw my picture on your website! Small world! Nice job on the marathon, you’re a real trooper and I am so proud to call you my Auntee! 🙂 See you at St. George next year!

    Check out this link I thought it would put a smile on your face!

  14. Janece Perkins Reply

    Christy! Love the new look of the blog…and the cute chicky at the top TOTALLY looks like a cartoon YOU! And I have to say…Scott and I were taking bets that you would do another marathon! GO FOR IT! Scott’s trying to get me to do it next year…that may take a miracle!
    So fun to see you this weekend!

    @The Brock Family,
    I love Janece. Small world. Scott and I are more like brother and sister since we grew up together. He killed the marathon. Ran a 3:30.

  16. The Brock Family Reply

  20. Chris Reply

    Congratulations! Awesome accomplishment! You really deserve someone ELSE making you food. 🙂

    Congrats on the marathon…I’ve only accomplished a 5K! Blog looks cute and chicken casserole is pure comfort food 🙂

  22. Strawberry Cake Reply

    This is yummy. It is in one of my many church cookbooks. I think someone brought it to me once after having a baby.

  23. LDH Reply

    I just made this on Sunday when my daughter and family came by after church. A friend brought it to a pot luck dinner we had here last year and we all just loved it! Easy, yummy and comforting 🙂
