This lightened up Chicken Tetrazzini is much lower in points, but still full of flavor!
I have been making Chicken Tetrazzini for years, but the original version was too full of fat and calories. I knew I needed to lighten it up.
Regular Chicken Tetrazzini has a lot of butter in it, as much as a 1/2 cup. That would be 40 points just for the butter!
I ended up skipping the butter and I didn’t even miss it.
Instead of using regular cream of chicken condensed soup I used 98% fat free cream of chicken condensed soup. That saved 14 points!
Replacing regular sour cream with fat free sour cream saved another 32 points!
I didn’t have to make too many other changes to the recipe after that.
This lightened up Chicken Tetrazzini is 7 points per serving for blue and purple, 8 points for green.
This is a perfect recipe to use a cooked rotisserie chicken!
Yield: 12 servings (7 points per serving for blue and purple, 8 points for green)
- 16 oz. Spaghetti
- 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cooked
- 2 (10/5 oz.) cans Campbell's condensed cream of chicken, 98% fat free
- 2 cups fat-free sour cream
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 2 cups part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- parsley (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cook the spaghetti according to the directions on the box. Drain and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl combine the cream of chicken, sour cream, chicken broth, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Stir in the chicken and 1 cup of mozzarella cheese, then the spaghetti noodles.
Spray a 9×13 pan with no-stick cooking spray. Add the spaghetti mixture to the pan then top with the remaining mozzarella cheese. Bake for 50 minutes.
