If you’re looking for a super easy dinner recipe to throw in the slow cooker for tonight’s dinner, then this Swiss Chicken Casserole is it. There is no pre-cooking of anything, and all you will have to do is layer the ingredients in your slow cooker, turn it on, and let your slow cooker do its thing for 8 hours.

I need to explain something about the recipe.  It calls for canned cream of mushroom soup and cream of chicken soup.  I know I don’t usually have recipes on RecipeGirl that call for canned soup, but this one is an exception.  If you don’t like to use canned soups, then this recipe won’t be for you.  If you don’t mind pure comfort food once in a while, then you’ll probably love this casserole as much as I do!

What’s the best slow cooker to buy?

I have a favorite slow cooker that I’ve used for many years. It’s easy to use, and I love that you can program the exact time and heat level. When your food is done slow cooking, it automatically switches to “warm,” and it just keeps your food warm until you’re ready to serve it. It’s the Hamilton Beach 6-Quart Slow Cooker. It’s a workhorse in my kitchen, and I love it!
