Macro Friendly Swiss Chicken

I grew up eating this casserole and it is a comforting classic in my book! Instead of using condensed soup, I make my own and flavor it with onion powder and poultry seasoning. Really tasty!!

  • Place chicken breasts in between two pieces of parchment paper and pound out to be less than 1-inch thick and more even across the entire breast. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper and place into prepared pan. Top each piece of chicken with cheese. Set aside.
  • In a small saucepan, whisk cold milk with flour, poultry seasoning, onion powder, salt and pepper. Place over medium heat and whisk constantly until sauce starts to thicken into a sauce. Remove from heat and stir in butter. Pour hot sauce overtop chicken. Top chicken with crushed ritz crackers.
