Nice casserole for a rainy day. Try to use fresh kraut, not canned; and good quality Swiss cheese.


  1. In heavy skillet, sear thighs 5 to 6 minutes on each side.
  2. Spread kraut into 3 qt baking dish.
  3. Place thighs on top, skin side up.
  4. Place cheese slices evenly over entire dish.
  5. Spread dressing evenly over cheese.
  6. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
  7. Remove foil and bake additional 20 minutes.
  8. NOTE: Boneless, skinless chicken breasts can be substituted. Cut breasts so 2 pieces equal a serving portion. Lightly salt and pepper the chicken. Do not skillet brown. Increase cooking time 8-10 minutes.

Very tasty recipe, but a little messy :). The chicken pieces I used were fairly big, so I did have to cook it about 20 minutes longer. The flavor was great and combined well. I served this with cole slaw. Good dinner!
