Recipe: Skinny Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

     While Mike was gone last week I decided to try out this recipe. He's not big on casseroles, and truthfully neither am I, but this one wasn't bad. If you're similar to us and would rather have something a little less one note, I still wouldn't shy away from this. Just make another side, probably something crunchy would be best. But this casserole was really good so you should definitely try it.

     And, it's a Skinny Mom recipe, so it's actually not bad for you. A cup of this without the topping is only 305 calories. The original recipe called for saltines as the topping but I used a little something different to add some more flavor. And let me tell you...it was divine!! It is super cheesy and creamy. I have to say I used the large shredded cheese, so that might have something to do with how cheesy it was, but it was really good!!

Skinny Chicken and Broccoli Casserole
• 1 lb chicken breast, diced
• 14 oz. frozen broccoli
•10.75 oz. can reduced fat cream of mushroom soup
• 2 tbsp light mayo
• 1/2 cup reduced fat shredded cheese
• 1/2 cup crumbled White Cheddar Cheez-Its
• salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350º and prepare a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. Spray a skillet with cooking spray and cook salt and peppered chicken over medium high heat until there is no pink in the center. In a large bowl mix soup, mayo, frozen broccoli, and shredded cheese. Add chicken to bowl and mix well. Pour mixture into baking dish and sprinkle with Cheez-Its. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Enjoy!
