I LOVE a good chicken casserole. A low point chicken casserole is even better!
This Ritz Chicken Casserole is only 3 Freestyle points per serving. You could have two servings for only 6 points!
It’s also very easy to make. I bought a cooked rotisserie chicken from the grocery store to make it even easier.
It’s also a perfect recipe for leftover chicken, or you could bake it fresh yourself.
The first thing I did was shredded the chicken. Then, I added Healthy Request Cream of Chicken condensed soup, fat-free sour cream, skim milk and seasonings to a mixing bowl.
I mixed it together, then added in my chicken and vegetables. I bought a small bag of frozen carrots and peas. I wanted to add some veggies to make it a little more filling.
I used a pie pan to cook the casserole but you can also use an 8×8 pyrex dish. I sprayed the pie pan with no-stick cooking spray, then added the chicken mixture.
Next up I added a 1/2 cup of shredded, reduced-fat Mexican cheese. You could also use reduced fat cheddar, I just happened to have reduced-fat Mexican cheese.
Instead of using regular Ritz crackers I bought the reduced-fat Ritz crackers. That helped to save points. I took 10 of the crackers and put them in a zip up bag and used a meat mallet to smash them into small pieces.
Once my crackers were all smashed I added them to the dish.
Instead of drizzling the dish with melted butter I sprayed the crackers with Pam Superior No Stick Cooking Spray. I like it because it is real olive oil. You can use up to 8 sprays for 0 points.
Not using butter in this dish saved a ton of points!
I baked it in the oven for 30 minutes. It’s a quick and delicious dish….a perfect weeknight meal.
