I would like to convert this to SB Friendly P1, suggestions:

1 1/2 lbs Chicken Breast
1 c fat free sour cream
1 tbls olive oil
2 1/4 c seasoned croutons (??? need subsitution)
4 med zuccihini cubed
3/4 c carrots grated (I would use green beans)
1/2 c chopped onion
1 can chicken broth (low solium/fat)
1/2 cup fat free rocotiti chesse
chopped red pepper

In bowl mix oil with 1 1/14 c croutons. In large saucepan, put in olive oil, heat zucchini, green beans,onions until soft. Remove from pan set aside. Cook chicken thoroughly in same pan, cube chicken. Mix sour cream, broth, rocotiti and pepper, add veggies and rest of croutons. Put in baking dish, top with croutons, bake at 350 degrees for 35 mins.

How about if I use cannellini beans in place of the croutons, I could pan saute them until browned add some seasoning, use them inside and as a topping.

You don't need to put a topping on it at all but you could sprinkle some grated Parmesan cheese on top. Some reduced fat baking mix combined with some grated Parmesan cheese makes a nice light topping. I usually use 6T baking mix + 1/4C Parmesan tossed with about 1T of light butter/ margarine and some onion flakes on top of my revised green bean casserole recipe and everybody loves it. I know you're on P1 but that little bit of baking mix per serving won't derail you

I've converted many recipes that use high fat foods to something better and find if I omit something like a bread topping etc. I don't miss it. :)

Sea chick, thank you, I like the idea of the parmesan cheese that always adds good flavor. Off to the kitchen.
