Chicken surprise

Updated on November 9, 2010

Chicken Surprise

This particular chicken dish was named by my husband many years ago, I have had to alter the name to put it on a recipe that possible minors would be reading. It is fairly easy with the instructions, and has excellent taste that can be served to guests or used as a family night dish.

Chicken surprise

Ingredients:
3 lbs chicken breasts (bone in works for best flavor)
1 medium onion - chopped
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of celery soup
2 Cups Chicken stock or broth
1 cup sour cream
8 oz Swiss cheese
2 Cups croutons (seasoned is best, any flavor you like)
3 TBSP Vegetable oil
Salt or seasoning of your choice

Directions -
Lightly brown chicken and onion in oil in large stock pot. Cover with water, add seasoning of choice and simmer until done (about 30 minutes) remove from broth, cool until able to handle. Remove chicken meat from bones and break in to bite size pieces. Place in bottom of 9 x 13 baking dish.

In separate bowl combine soups, broth and sour cream, stir or whisk until smooth. Pour half of soup mixture over chicken, smoothing to cover all. Place Swiss cheese slices over soup, over lapping if needed. Add 1 cup croutons to soup mixture, stir, pour over Swiss cheese. Top with remaining croutons.

Bake at 350 degrees until lightly browned and bubbly, about 45 minutes.

This dish can be served with potatoes, noodles or rice it goes with just about anything.

This recipe can be altered to use mushroom soup if desired. My children decided long ago that pigs noses (mushrooms) were not to be eaten at our table and if included in any dish would be refused.

I have found a very good chicken bouillon that I like to use in my broth, so feel free to use any you like. I taste my soup before pouring it over the chicken to make sure the flavor is good.

Enjoy!

      Oh yeah... it's super yum! When added to some yummy sides dishes can feed quite a few. In your case Mom, I would add another pound or so of chicken, 1 more can of soup, another cup of broth and it should feed your family just fine.

      I know that if I used the Mushroom soup my whole family would love it so much I probably would only be left with a taste after everyone served their own plate.

      Great recipe when you use mushrooms and cream of mushroom soup. Curiosity has been aroused - So what did your husband call it? Spell the answer and no kid will be able to figure it out. :)

      Yes, I would use mushrooms BUT... the kids wouldn't eat it. I may have to write a Hub about 'pigs noses' and the funny story behind it. Ok, maybe I can spell it on here with asterisks... He called it "Chicken Sh*t Surprise".. why? Cause he says: "Looks like sh*t, smells like sh*t, SURPRISE!!! It's good!!" Yep, that's my hubby...
