Slow Cooker Swiss Casserole Chicken

OMG, this was another successful crockpot recipe! I was in heaven! We served this to some friends who came over to help my DB create some steps in our garage, and we got rave reviews on this dish. The only change I'll try next time is to add a little (maybe 1/2 cup) chicken broth and omit the butter- while the chicken was fork-tender, it tasted a little dry. The ingredients are those you would have on hand, so go out and make this. NOW!

Updated 9/18/13- Since chicken breasts are coming in larger packages now (3 breasts is now roughly 2.25-2.5# packages!), I'm adjusting this by adding (2) cans of cream of... soup, and making it lower in fat and calories substituting chicken broth instead of melted butter (still tastes great). All updates are in blue italics font.

3 chicken breasts (roughly 1.75-2.5 lb)
Seasonings- Garlic salt, Black pepper, Cayenne pepper
3-4 slices Swiss cheese (optional)
(2) 10-3/4 oz cans of reduced-fat cream of celery soup (any Cream of... soup would be fine here)
1/4 cup milk (Used skim milk)
2 cups stuffing mix (Used Stove Top) (I use the entire box of Stove Top)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted (I pour 1/4-1/3 cup chicken broth or chicken stock)

1. Lay chicken breasts on the bottom of the slow cooker. Season chicken with desired seasonings.
2. Place cheese slices on top.
3. In a 2-cup measuring cup, combine soup and milk. Place into slow cooker on top of chicken and sliced cheese.
4. Sprinkle the stuffing mix evenly over chicken.
5. Using the same 2-cup measuring cup (used to mix the milk and cream of soup), melt the butter in the microwave, and then pour the butter over the stuffing, ensuring even coating on the stuffing.
6. Cook on LOW for 8-10 hours or HIGH for 3-4 hours.
