Swiss Chicken

I'm not sure what you all mean when you talk about "Hump Day" recipes, but if it means Wednesday night, which is the night of the week I find myself most tired - It's as far into the week as you can get, without being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel (weekend) quite yet. If a "Hump Day" meal means it's the perfect meal for one of those nights where you hardly have enough energy to climb into bed after work, let alone make dinner, then THIS, my friends, is a Hump Day Dinner! This one is so easy, and very simple to adjust for more or less servings. I made it all by myself (which I'm challenging myself to do for all the recipes I post here) and Steve was impressed! This one's from my mom, so here goes:

6 chicken breasts
6 slices swiss cheese
1 can Cream of Chicken soup

1/2 cup water

1 cup bread crumbs

1 stick melted butter

1. Clean and arrange chicken breasts in a casserole dish.
2. Place one slice of swiss cheese on each breast.
3. Mix the Cream of Chicken soup with the water and pour/spread it over the chicken.
4. Sprinkle bread crumbs on top.
5. Drizzle butter on top of bread crumbs

6. Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees, or until chicken is done (juices run clear in middle)
The swiss cheese, cream of chicken, and butter make the gravy.

I served it with rice (whatever kind I had in the pantry). When the rice was done, I rolled in a bag of heated-up frozen veggie medley. Easy! And the chicken turns out very tender (I am picky about chicken!)
