Baked Stove Top Mozzarella Chicken

Baked Stove Top Mozzarella Chicken is another quick and delicious supper! I’m not sure where I originally found it so I did a Google search and discovered so many similar recipes, I have no idea who first created it. For all I know, it might’ve been Kraft or Campbell’s. So here’s my version. If it seems familiar, you’ve probably seen it scrolling down facebook or some other such place on the web. 😉 Trust me, it’s worth adding to your dinner rotation.

No salt is needed in this dish since the stuffing, cheese, and soup come pre-loaded. A little pepper wouldn’t go amiss, though. As usual, the pictures show a double batch, recipe is for a single.

Baked Stove Top Mozzarella Chicken

  • 1 pkg. Stove Top chicken stuffing mix (they have a lower sodium option)
  • 4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 package sliced mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 stick of butter, melted

Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with oil.

Trim fat from chicken and butterfly and cut all the way through to make two thinner pieces from each. This is easier to do when the chicken is partially frozen.

Place the chicken in an even layer in bottom of dish. Cover with cheese slices in an even layer.

In a small bowl, stir milk and soup together until smooth. Spread evenly over cheese layer.

Sprinkle the Stove Top Stuffing evenly over the top of the soup.

Pour melted butter as evenly as possible over the stuffing.

Bake approximately 35 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through, no longer pink in center, and internal temp reaches 165°F.

Serve with rice, mashed potatoes, or mashed cauliflower.

  1. Great idea, but way too much salt! With the salt in the soup & Stove Top, it was over the top inedible. To not waste the cooked food, we added sour cream and 1 cup water but that didn’t save it. Still too salty! Adding diced potatoes to leftovers to cut the salr, hopefully.

    • Thank you for letting us know how this turned out for you, Karen. Upon reflection, you’re right. At the time, I thought it was too salty, but my husband and son thought it was perfect. They, of course, work hard out in the Florida heat and lose a lot of salt from sweating.

      Adding frozen shredded potatoes or cooked cauliflower/broccoli to your leftovers might save it and make it far tastier in the process.

      The next time I whip this up, I believe I’ll make the stuffing as directed on the box, add water and sour cream to the soup and mix in one or two of the vegetables. Put the chicken in the pan, top with soup/vegetable mixture, then top with the stuffing and bake. If it works, I’ll switch out this recipe.

      Thank you so much for weighing in!
