This Dorito Chicken Casserole is filled with chicken, cheese, Doritos and vegetables!
And it’s easy to make, perfect for leftover chicken or a rotisserie chicken from the store.
The prep time for this casserole is about 10 minutes, that’s it!
The most time consuming part is cutting up the chicken. I used skinless chicken breasts to keep it low in points, you need 2 cups.
There are a few things I did to help keep this low in Weight Watchers points. Instead of regular cream of chicken soup I used 98% fat free cream of chicken soup.
A lot of Dorito Chicken Casseroles put crushed Doritos on the bottom and top. I reduced the amount of nacho cheese Doritos I used and only put them on top.
Instead of regular sour cream I used fat free sour cream. Since it’s mixed with the cream of chicken soup you can’t even tell a difference.
I used one cup of cheese for the topping. I went with reduced fat Mexican cheese blend.
Adding a cup of vegetables gives it a bit of a healthy kick, I just used frozen mixed vegetables.
To make this casserole I started by shredding the cooked chicken. I put it in a large mixing bowl then added the vegetables, cream of chicken, sour cream and seasonings. I mixed it together then added it to a 2-quart casserole dish.
Since I only used 3 ounces of the Dorito chips I used a food scale to weigh them. Then I put them in a baggie and used a meat mallet to break them into pieces.
Top the casserole with the Doritos then the shredded cheese.
Since we’re using cooked chicken you just need to bake it until it’s heated through and the cheese is melted, about 35 minutes.
Per serving the Weight Watchers points are 6 for blue and purple, 7 for green. There are six servings in this recipe.
This is an easy recipe perfect for those busy weeknights!
