    This is great and very versatile I used up my own ingredients. Italian Panko instead of crackers. Munster cheese instead of Swiss. I added some more spices. Use a heavy hand on whatever spices you use. The sauce will absorb the spuces before chicken. . I used dried onion but also added dried toasted onions and smoked paprika. Reading others say it needs kick. I used more spice measurements than it says. I put what looked good on chicken then added a bit more. The onion dried is the key. No excess water and no chunks of onion. Dried onion breaks down but stays big flavor. Dried garlic would be good if you don’t like or don’t have onion This is getting written in my recipe book and recipe cards.

    This was better than I expected it to be. I used panko bread crumbs instead of the crackers.

    I've been trying to eat healthier, so I purchased TASTE OF HOME COMFORT FOOD DIET COOKBOOK. I have tried several recipes from it with great success, and this is one of them. I often used to make the full fat/calorie version and I was craving the creamy deliciousness of it. I gave this one a try and loved it! The only changes I made were I used 2% milk and regular Ritz crackers because that is what I had on hand. I served this with steamed broccoli.

    Very tasty! I pounded the chicken to tenderize. I topped with Panko, not crackers and butter. I used more garlic powder and onion powder, not minced onion. I serve it over brown rice.

    Like fancy Hawaiin haystacks! I took out the sour cream since my family doesn't eat that and it was still delicious!

    I used a homemade "Cream of Something Soup Mix" to make this recipe and it was delicious! Before cooking the the chicken I pounded it with a tenderizer and it practically melted after cooking. I liked the swiss cheese, but I think next time I'd like to try maybe a smoked provolone or a sharp cheddar. I topped the mixture with panko crumbs and no butter before baking and it was delicious!

    Made this as stated, however used shredded swiss instead of slices. My family enjoyed this very much served over rice. Next time I think I will try sprinkling cayenne over the chicken to give it more flavor and kick. :)

    Good quick recipe! I was able to throw it together after I got home from work. Chicken was very moist. It was hard to believe that this was fairly healthy! It took me closer to 40-45 minutes in baking time, but I might have had thicker chicken breasts. We're not big onion fans, so I'll probably cut down ont he minced onion next time.
