We lightened this dish by using fat-free soup and sour cream instead of regular and by replacing lots of regular Cheddar with a smaller portion of reduced-fat Cheddar.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook rice mix according to package directions, omitting fat.

Step 2

Sprinkle seasoning evenly over chicken pieces.

Step 3

Cook chicken in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat 10 minutes or until chicken is done, stirring often.

Step 4

Stir together chicken, rice, onion, and next 5 ingredients in a bowl. Spoon into an 11- x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with cheese.

Step 5

Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until bubbly around edges.

Step 6

Note: For testing purposes, we used Mrs. Dash salt-free herb-and-spice seasoning.

Delicious! To save time, you can use 3 cups of rotisserie chicken from the deli instead of cooking it as called for. I also substituted cream of chix soup and used 2 stalks chopped celery instead of the onion, with tasty results.

This was really good. I doubled the amount of chicken and used Lawry's as seasoning; it was very tasty. I'll make ahead and freeze for an easy meal for upcoming in-law visit. I'm not sure why I seemed to use every bowl/cutting board in the kitchen tho. I agree with the reviewer who said it was more time-consuming than it looks.
