Grandma Smith’s Swiss Chicken Recipe

When you consider how simply it comes together, Swiss Chicken is surprisingly satisfying and very well received.

This recipe was passed down by a dear lady in our church. She was affectionately known to everyone as “Grandma Smith.” You could say that her goal in life was to make you fat and happy – and she succeeded. Grandma Smith was in charge of the church kitchen and Swiss chicken was her go-to recipe for feeding a crowd. Why did she rely on it so much? 

Why did she rely on it so much? 

First of all, it’s easy to prepare.  Second, it’s hearty and goes a long way.  And finally,  everyone loves the taste.

Grandma Smith now sits at the feet of the Lord.  She loved Him and people knew it. Her testimony was strong and I think of her often.

  • 1/2 of a Chicken Breast per person, cooked and cubed
  • (1) can of Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup, per every 2 people
  • One package of sliced Swiss cheese
  • (1) box of chicken flavored stuffing


  • Begin by grilling or baking the chicken breasts.
  • Next, cut the chicken into cubes and layer them in the bottom of a greased 9×13 pan.
  • Pour and spread the cans of cream of chicken over the top.
  • Then, lay slices of Swiss cheese over the entire mixture.
  • Add just enough water to make the stuffing slightly soft.
  • Finally, pour and spread the stuffing as the top layer.

Once you assemble all the ingredients in your baking dish, bake it at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes. Remove the Swiss Chicken from the oven once the stuffing turns golden brown and the cheese melts.
