Chicken Spinach Bake – Weight Watchers

This is my new favorite!!! I will definitely be making this on a regular basis. 

There’s pasta, chicken and cheese. Need I say more? It’s quick and easy to make, plus it is filling. I used a rotisserie chicken (just the breasts) because I was lazy. It would also be great with some seasoned and baked chicken breasts.

This dish makes 6 servings and it’s only 6 Freestyle points per serving.
