Cherry Chicken Casserole
21/2 to 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
8 slices Swiss cheese, cut 4x4 inches
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 c. milk
1 c. dried cherries
1 (6-oz.) stovetop dressing
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut chicken breasts into bite-size pieces and place in bottom of 9x13-inch pan. Cover with Swiss cheese slices. Dilute soup with milk and stir in cherries. Pour soup mixture over chicken and cheese. Prepare stuffing according to directions on box and spread on top.
Bake for about an hour, maybe less. You may cover with foil part of the time, but remove the foil at the end to crisp up the top.
