Sandy’s Chicken (Baked Chicken with Stuffing and Cheese)

Sandy’s Chicken is a delicious Baked Chicken with Stuffing and Cheese. It is easy to make and one of my favorite comfort food meals. I love to serve it over egg noodles with a side of green beans or peas.

I’m not quite sure who Sandy is. I ripped this recipe out of a magazine years ago and I can’t even remember which magazine it was. Best guess is Taste of the South or Southern Lady. What I do know is this is an easy, wholesome meal. We’re talking comfort food pure and simple.

 

You’ll see recipes like this one in just about any community or church cookbook. That’s because it has mass appeal. ๐Ÿ™‚

Only a few, simple ingredients are needed: Boneless chicken breasts, a can of Cream of Chicken soup ( Cream of Mushroom would work well too), cheese, stuffing mix and butter.

A combination of cheddar cheese and swiss cheese ctreates a winning flavor combined with the stuffing.

 

Since Sandy’s Chicken bakes in the oven, there is very little clean-up. Double or even triple the recipe and you can serve a crowd. You can clean what little mess you make prepping it while it bakes in the oven. Greet your guests with a spic-and-span kitchen. Serve with egg noodles and green beans or broccoli to round out the meal.

I like to cut chicken breasts in half horizontally to get 2 thinner pieces. Have you noticed that the chicken breasts sold today are enormous? Even the organic ones seem to be creeping up in size. Plus they are expensive if you’re feeding a crowd. Cut them in half and you still have plenty for a single portion. Especially considering a recommended portion size for chicken is 4 ounces. Most chicken breasts are double or even triple that.

And as an added bonus, the chicken will cook faster too!

      Thanks for letting us know you enjoyed it Jan! I must say this is a meal that never disappoints. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Sounds like the Paula Dean Recipe for Lady and Sons chicken and wine. Very similar but you use mushrooms and she uses wine. Awesome recipe though.

  3. Should the cheese slices be cut in half? Layering them will only cover 3 of the chicken cutlets and there are 6 here.

    1. Christin Mahrlig

      If they are not long enough to completely cover 2 pieces, then yes cut them in half.

  4. Sue Eschelbach

    This does very well in a crockpot also. There are a number of variations to this one. A
    few tweeks here and there. Look on Allrecipes and Food.com under chicken & stuffing
    I’ve even seen it called Swiss Chicken! Whatever you call it, it’s delicious

  5. I am wondering if you have tried a cornbread stuffing with this? Sounds so good however I am cornbread stuffing kinda gal!
