Chicken & rice crescent topped casserole

September 29, 2016

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 9 smart points per serving.

    Hi Kate, I’m going to make this tonight but I wondered where the chicken broth comes in to play? It’s listed in the ingredients but I don’t know where you used it in the recipe. Thanks for any help! (@ww_tallandfabulous)

      Hi Jennifer, sorry I left it out in the directions, probably because I already listed “soup” ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have since added it, it is just mixed with everything at the same time, I saw your post and it looks awesome, so I am assuming you figured it out ๐Ÿ™‚

      Do you mean freeze it before you bake? I have not personally tried it but I think it should work out

        This was delicious! I made it tonight and my kids gobbled it up. Thanks for the recipe! And the portions are very generous! I have enough left over ingredients that I plan to make another one and freeze it. I think it should be ok.

    I thought white and brown rice are the same smart points ?

      I am not to sure Maureen as I never use brown rice, maybe the WW App will tell you

    This looks delicious! If I was to use fresh broccoli instead, would I just steam it first until tender and then add it?

    Hello, Have you ever thought about putting the sodium count in your info, or is that not possible?

      It would be a lot of work to go back, but I can try and start adding it from here on out

    Hello! How many smart points would this be if I left the biscuits out of the recipe? I LOVE your website and your Facebook page!!! Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Kristina, thank you for your sweet words, the crescent roll pack is 25SP in total so that would knock the points per serving down from 9 to 5SP

    Excited to give this a try. Is the sodium content available for this recipe?

    This dish was totally amazing! My husband wants it for dinner on a regular basis. So easy to make and soooo delicious! Thanks for the info about the SP if leaving off the crescent, but I would find that hard to do. They are so worth the 4 points!!!!
