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 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup milk, I used 1%

  • 2 cups cooked white rice, or brown if you prefer but it's 2 points higher
  • Dash of salt & pepper
  • 2/3 cup reduced fat shredded cheese, I used a 3 cheese blend

  • In a small bowl, microwave your frozen broccoli with 3Tbsp of water for 2-3 minutes, mixing it half way.
  • In a large bowl mix your soup, chicken, broth, broccoli, cooked rice, lemon, milk, shredded cheese and salt & pepper. Stir well.
  • Pour out into your casserole dish.

  1. For calculating points, are you using chicken breast only or both white and dark meat chicken? I’ve always used just chicken breast but didn’t know what you used since the recipe just says chicken. Thanks!!

  2. This is the first recipe of yours that I made, and it got me hooked!! I’ve already made quite a few different ones! And I’ve currently got this in my freezer!

  3. Love this recipe and hubby actually asks for it! I took the advice of another commenter and replaced the rice with cauliflower rice. I then replaced the rolls with the 2 ingredient dough recipe that is so popular among weight watchers these days. Final point value? 5!

    1. Hi Peggy, if you read the ingredients you will see “10 oz cooked chicken (I used shredded but cubed will work to)” the chicken is cooked first
