This casserole is a winner!! This is one of my favorite recipes that I lightened up for Weight Watchers. 

I didn’t have to do too much to lighten up this recipe. Just a few simple changes to make it lower in points, but not compromising any of the flavor.

The original version of this chicken casserole called for more butter. Four tablespoons of butter is 20 Freestyle points! I only used one tablespoon of butter for 5 Freestyle points.

Instead of using full fat milk I used fat-free skim milk for less points.

And finally, I used reduced fat cheddar cheese to save 5 Freestyle points.

As always I had my little helper patiently waiting for some food to drop.

This recipe is a good one for him because I use a rotisserie chicken. As soon as he hears me open the bag he is by my side.

There may have been a couple of pieces of chicken that “accidentally” fell on the floor. He was a happy boy.

I love recipes where I can use a rotisserie chicken. It’s a great time saver!
