Ingredients

  • 2 large boneless chicken breasts, cut up (or one rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 package frozen broccoli, thawed and cut up (or 1/2 head of fresh broccoli, steamed & cut up)
  • 1 can reduced fat cream of chicken celery or mushroom soup
  • 2 Tablespoons fat free plain yogurt or low fat mayonnaise
  • 6 oz. cooked pasta (optional)
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup crumbled Cheez-Its or other cheesy cracker (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare an 8”x 8” baking dish by spraying with a non-stick spray.
  2. Cut up chicken breasts into chunks then fry in olive oil in medium skillet until no pink remains. If using a rotisserie chicken, omit frying and just cut into chunks.
  3. If steaming fresh broccoli, bring small amount of water to boil in a medium sized saucepan. Place broccoli in steamer basket and set in boiling water. Cover, turn down heat and cook for 5-7 minutes.
  4. In a large bowl, mix cream soup and yogurt. Fold in broccoli, chicken, noodles, if using, and cheese then pour into dish. Sprinkle top with crushed crackers for an added crunch.
  5. Bake 20-25 minutes. If preparing ahead of time and refrigerating, bake for 30 minutes.
