Baked Swiss Chicken Recipe
Canned soup, white wine, Swiss cheese and crushed croutons dress up chicken breasts in this elegant entree from Beverly Roberge. Ideal for unexpected guests, it only requires a few ingredients. "The creamy sauce is excellent with garlic mashed potatoes or rice," says the Bristol, Connecticut cook.
•6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1-1/2 pounds)
•1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
•1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
•6 slices Swiss cheese
•1 cup crushed seasoned croutons
•Place chicken in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. In a small bowl, combine the soup and wine or broth; pour over chicken. Top with cheese and sprinkle with croutons.
• Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Yield: 6 servings.

Quick Homemade Croutons
I hate to waste the heel from a loaf of bread or a few leftover hot dog or hamburger buns. So I cube them into a bowl, spray them with nonstick cooking spray and season with garlic powder, parsley and basil or oregano. Then I bake them on a cookie sheet at 250° until they’re crisp and brown. My family loves the quick homemade croutons. —Nancy C., Windermere, Florida
