Chicken breasts topped with Swiss cheese and baked in a creamy white wine sauce. I made this dinner for my senior prom date almost 20 years ago. She is but a distant memory, while this chicken dish is a HIT when I have the men over for dinner parties! If desired, serve with mixed greens tossed with pecans, a fruit vinaigrette and crumbled blue cheese. Add herbed egg noodles and a crusty bread, and you've got a meal made in heaven!

TOO much wine... and bland... my son and I tried to eat it but threw the remainder out... My husband ate most of his but agreed it would not be a recipe I should repeat. I would omit the wine and add more cayenne and maybe chili poweder?... not sure..

This dish was yummy my boyfriend liked it too. Changes I made: I seasoned the raw chicken with some salt cayenne pepper and garlic powder first. In the sauce I cut it down to a lil under 1 cup of wine and there was no strong wine taste I used white zinfendel (sp?) that is actually pink. I added quite a bit extra garlic powder enough until I could smell it in the sauce. Instead of mustard seed I added about a tablespoon of dijon mustard. I let the chicken sit overnight with the cheese and sauce on it. Right before baking I added the croutons and melted butter. I did not measure it just added what I thought I'd want. I baked pepperidge farm puff pastry shells halfed them and placed the chicken and sauce over it. Really good!

Really good recipe. I used crumbled up ritz crackers instead of the bread crumbs and used more cheese. Since I'm not a huge wine fan I would probably reduce the wine to 1 cup next time but my boyfriend who loves wine liked it as is.

I have made this several times for my husband and family. It is our favorite chicken recipe. I used StoveTop chicken stuffing which added a nice herb flavor. I also eliminated the mustard seed as it was too tangy for my taste. I agree with others that the wine should be reduced to about a cup or less. This is an easy recipe that can be made in advance of company.

I made this exactly as directed (I didn't read the reviews 'til it was already in the oven). Then I worried about the amount of wine... I needn't have. It came out delicious. The entire family enjoyed it - from my 5 year old to my very picky husband! It was an easy delicious weeknight meal.

This should realy be called creamy swiss WINE chicken. This is a great easy recipe but definetly has a strong wine taste so if you love wine you will love this recipe (I dont like wine so next time ill use 1/3 cup instead) chicken came out super tender though (that was my favorit part.) this recipe is great over rice too! Will make again with less wine. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Yummy! After reading the reviews I made sure to season the chicken with several seasonings: cayanne pepper fresh ground pepper 3 garlic cloves thyme and salt. I used the full amount of wine called for and it made the sauce taste excellent! I must have used double the amount of croutons called for and I loved it. I also used triple the cheese because the breasts were huge.
