Country Chicken casserole
I skip the fried onions - use fat free soup & lower fat american cheese. This is really tasty.
3 cups shredded hash brown potatoes
1 (6 ounce) can French-fried onions, divided
6 slices processed American cheese
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into bite size pieces
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
3/4 cup milk
1 (15 ounce) can corn
1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
2 Stir hash browns and 1/2 of the onions together in a 9x13 inch baking dish, then lay cheese slices on top and layer chicken over cheese. In a small bowl, mix soup and milk together and pour mixture over chicken.
3 Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear. Pour corn onto chicken and stir to combine all ingredients, then bake for an additional 20 minutes.
4 Sprinkle remaining onions over all and bake for another 5 minutes, or until onions are golden brown. Let sit 5 minutes before serving.

As Holly has pointed out before I cook often by throwing stuff in a pan! Works out pretyy well 99% of the time:lol:
This is my latest:
Kikoman Low Sodium Soy Sauce
Hormel Teriyaki Chicken pre-marinated cut into little chuncks (180 cal per breast)
Choose any of the following:

Here's my favorite recipe. It's vegetarian (I work in a kosher office so everything I bring to work must be vegetarian) but don't let that stop you. It's soooo easy to make. Some of my friends like to put it in warm tortillas but I like it straight up. It's high in protein and I make it super spicy.
2 cups vegetable crumbles (this is called TVP texture vegetable protein and you can find it with the vegetarian stuff in the freezer section. My favorite is Morningstar Crumbles).
2 1/3 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 cup chick peas
1 1/2 cups salsa (I use hot chunky style)
1/2 cup black beans
Chopped Onion to taste
Chopped Green Pepper to taste
A sprinkling of low-fat cheese
Spices (I use whatever is in the cabinet, usually: hot chili powder, red pepper flakes, cumin, garlic, and some more hot sauce).
Heat oil in wok or deep frying pan. Pour frozen crumbles into the pan and stirfry over medium heat until soft. Add spices. Add drained chick peas and black beans. Add salsa. Cook over low heat until flavors are blended. Sprinkle with cheese.

I'm not much of a cook, but I tried this recipe tonight from the recipe section of 3FC and it was awesome. I used fat-free sour cream instead of regular sourcream and I skipped on the salt.
6 skinlesschicken breast halves
2 cups sour cream
2 cups salsa
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
Preheat oven to 350.
Slightly pound chicken to approximately 1/2 inch breasts. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with chilli powder.
In a lightly greased 9"x13" pan, place layer of chicken breasts across the bottom.
Cover with sour cream, spreading to edges of pan. Cover with salsa. Bake 45 miuntes, or until chicken is done.

Instead of buying 3 cans of chicken broth, I buy a box & a can. Much cheaper.

I am from the south and that is not gumbo, no matter what Richard Simmons says. Sounds like a nice vegetable soup ;-)
Chris<--------makes some of the best gumbo around
On that note I gave my secret gumbo recipe to my BIL Dale and his new wife Jennie when they got married. THEY WERE DISAPPOINTED, they wanted my Bacon gravy recipe. So I showed them how to cook it cause there is no recipe LOL!

Yea, y'know the lack of okra, shrimp & rice made me question the name, but it tastes really great.
Bacon gravy sounds awesome--bet it tastes delectable over waffles.

My Dinner Tonight
2 spinach herb tortillas (96% fat free)
1 boneless/skinless chicken breast, cooked however you want
2/3 c brown rice, cooked
I cooked the chicken breast for about 4 minutes in the microwave, then I cut it into chunks. Then I warmed the tortillas in the microwave for about 30 seconds. I put half the chicken w/half the rice on each tortilla, and put salsa over that & then rolled it up.
I have no idea how many points/calories this is, but it's really good. :)
