Fall and casseroles just go hand in hand don’t they.. You all know I like to keep my dishes simple, who has time to be in the kitchen for hours cooking up dinner.. not me that’s for sure! I’ve been wanting to do a chicken and rice dish for awhile now, but I wanted to put a little spin on it.. This crescent topped dish is so good, it’s comfort food at it’s best! I promise it is so easy to make and can be in your oven in about 10 minutes! Serves 6 at 8 freestyle smart points per serving.

- 1 can of low fat cream of chicken soup (284ml)
- 1 cup chicken broth
