Ingredients to Make Swiss Chicken

How to Make Swiss Chicken

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Trim the fat from chicken breast and filet them by cutting in half horizontally. If you prefer thicker pieces for chicken you don’t have to filet them but you will have to double the cooking time.

Lay each piece flat in a 9×12 baking dish. The chicken can overlap on the edges if you need to squeeze them all in. Then salt and pepper chicken. Pour cream of celery soup over the chicken breasts and spread evenly throughout the dish. Bake for 30 minutes. Lay the Swiss cheese slices evenly over the chicken and bake for 5 more minutes or until the cheese is fully melted. 

Notes & Tips

Substitutions for Swiss Chicken

  • Chicken Breasts: if you don’t have any chicken breasts on hand you can use chicken thighs or chicken tenderloins.
  • Cream of celery soup: while you can’t substitute the cream of celery soup with anything else, you can make it from scratch if you don’t have any. Use this easy recipe to make your own.
  • Topping: in addition to the swiss cheese, you can garnish the chicken with bread crumbs for some extra crunch and texture.

How to Store Swiss Chicken

Refrigerator: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. When ready to eat, place in a glass baking dish and warm in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Freezer: You can freeze Swiss Chicken for up to four months. When ready to eat, allow to thaw in the refrigerator for a day then place in a glass baking dish and warm in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
