The flavor of this dish has a lot of potential. To increase the layers of flavor I made some alterations. I sauteed the chicken with salt pepper and added 3 cloves of garlic before adding baking. This step keeps the juices in the chicken which prevents the sauce from becoming watery as this was a complaint of many others. I also increased the sour cream by 1/4 cup and flavors melded together. I have also considered adding sauteed creminis for more texture in the sauce. Read More

This was excellent! My husband and I aren't huge fans of swiss cheese but I decided to give this a try anyway. I agree with other reviewers that the swiss/sherry combination is very nice. It tastes more sophisticated than your typical cream of mushroom recipe. I followed the recipe exactly. Cooking time was perfect. The chicken was moist and tender. Hubby and I both really liked this. Prep was nice and easy too. Next time I may try bread crumbs in place of croutons. Read More

We really enjoyed this - my 18 month old kept wanting more. I adjusted this for 2 and it was great-tasting but it didn't present well after baking. This could be because I had only 2 breasts in a baking dish. When I make it again I will wait to put the swiss/bread crumbs on in the last few minutes. Read More

5 stars as it gave way to a new family dish! My hubby loved it! I had to increase things (dill/sourcream/sherry and added garlic) as my family loves big flavors. Still mild but it's a start for us! BIG THUMBS UP! Heavily sprinkle SEASONED PEPPER on breasts---salt----2 slices per breast----MIX TOGETHER: 1 can of the mushroom soup--one soup can of sherry--1 Cup sour cream--2 chopped garlic cloves and POUR OVER CHICKEN. Crush 1 1/2 cups of Texas Toast croutons to smaller bits (but not fine) and add 1/2 Cup Panko Italian crumbs. Add 1 teaspoon dry dill (I didn't have fresh) to the 1/2 cup melted butter then toss in crumbs. BAKE CHICKEN FOR 20 MINUTES-THEN ADD CRUMBS ON TOP. BAKE ANOTHER 20. The flavor reminded me of San Remo Dip Olive Garden used to have. I would even venture to add CHOPPED PIMENTO! Read More

Fabulous chicken dish! This was super easy to prep and the cook time was perfect. The only thing I would change next time are the croutons. I will probably try fresh bread crumbs or crush the croutons rather than full. Overall though great dish!!! Read More

I'm always looking for recipes that keep chicken breasts moist and this one caught my eye. I made it last night (cutting back to 4 TBS of butter) and it was fantastic. I served it on a bed of rice. My picky 19 year old daughter absolutely raved over it. This recipe is definitely a keeper Read More

Tweaked it just a little - pounded the breasts seasoned them with s&p and paprika and browned in a little butter with garlic before placing in the baking dish. I left off the crouton topping but did spinkle a little dill on top. Delicious! The flavors of the swiss cheese together with the sauce were amazing. Definitely a keeper. Read More
