Chicken Supreme

This recipe isn't from Pinterest...
(shocking, I know!)

This one is actually one from my family cookbook,
passed down from my Grandma Gifford to my Mom.

This is a comfort food recipe if there ever was one
but if you would like to make it a little healthier, there are always to do so!

Whenever I make this dish, it smells like home.
I am immediately in my childhood home at the dinner table with my family.
:) I smile just at the thought.

Not only does this meal smell amazing,
it could not be any easier to make... I swear.

So, from my family to yours:
Chicken Supreme

Here is what you will need:
  • 6 whole chicken breasts, bones, skinned, & halved (completely defrosted)
  • 2 cans creamy chicken and mushroom soup
  • 1 8oz crushed Pepperidge farm Herb Seasoned stuffing mix
  • 3/4 c melted butter
  • 6 slices Swiss cheese

Today I only used 4 chicken breasts because that was all that I had.
I also used Weight Watchers Swiss cheese, low fat soups, and smart balance butter (you could leave the butter out completely if you'd like).
And with these ingredients, it tasted no different!

To get started, preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place the chicken in the bottom of a buttered (I used cooking spray) 9 x 13 pan (just as you see in the picture above.) 
Place one slice of Swiss cheese over each piece of chicken.

Spread soup over the top.

The recipe calls for 2 cans of Creamy Chicken & Mushroom soup.
Today I had one can of Creamy Chicken and one can of Mushroom... That works too!

Sprinkle stuffing mix over top of the soup mix.

Drizzle the melted butter over top and bake for 1 and a half hours.

It is SO easy and SO delicious, that it is worth every minute.


  1. Not sure where else to post this... but your site is great but the color of the font makes it EXTREMELY difficult to read. I would read more of it, but it is hard, thought I would mention it!

    1. I changed the font color, hope it helps and is easier to read!! Thank you :)

  2. I am a cooking newbie and loved how easy (and delicious) this recipe was. What would you recommend as the best way to reheat leftovers of this dish?

    1. :) I am so glad you liked it! This was my first recipe that I used when starting to cook also. I just put the leftovers in the microwave (on a microwavable plate), but you could probably put it back in the oven at a low temp (maybe 250 or 300) for 20 minutes or so!! Just keep checking on it so it doesn't get dry!

  3. love pinterest and the recipes, now here's to hoping the commissary actually has the ingredients!

  4. I have made a recipe similar to this for years, except in the crockpot. Just add the chicken, 2 cans "cream of" soup, and turn crockpot on low for 6-8 hours (or high for 4 hours), then stir in the stuffing mix 30 min before serving. The chicken becomes so moist it shreds and the stuffing & chicken just meld together. YUM!

    Just wanted to share for those who like the recipe but don't have the extra time at the end of a workday. Enjoy!
