When I saw this chicken recipe over at The Southern Lady Cooks, I knew I had to try it.
My daughter loves Stove Top Stuffing and I knew she’d love this casserole.
I’m trying to watch my calories so I decided to use reduced fat items where I could. My recipe is just a little different than the one at TSLC, but it’s hopefully just as tasty.
Swiss Chicken Casserole
6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (I used 10 chicken tenderloins)
6 slices 2% Swiss cheese, sliced
1 (10.75 oz) can condensed reduced fat cream of chicken soup
1/4 cup skim milk
2 cups dry bread stuffing mix (I used Kroger brand)
Preheat oven to 350º.
Arrange chicken in a lightly sprayed 9 x 13 baking dish.
Top with Swiss cheese slices.
Combine soup, skim milk, and about 1/4 cup water and stir well.
Spoon mixture over chicken and sprinkle with stuffing mix.
I then sprayed with some butter flavored spray, (Sure miss my buttah!)
but if you’re not counting calories, drizzle about 1/4 cup of melted butter
over the stuffing.
Cover and bake for 50 minutes. Serve with your favorite green side dish.
Serves 6 fairly large portions.

I’ve started trying to watch my calories and this tasty dish naturally falls right into the low calorie category.
And it’s quick and easy! That’s a plus, right?
I fix this all the time and use whatever veggies I may have. This time I used a bag of frozen stir fry veggies and the preparation was even faster.
Spicy Shrimp Stir Fry
1 bag of Walmart frozen medium shrimp, peeled
1 bag of frozen stir fry veggies
1tsp Cajun spice
splash of soy sauce
First of all I thaw the frozen veggies, then toss in my wok skillet with about a tablespoon of oil. I toss in a little Cajun spice and soy sauce and give it a quick stir.
When the veggies are tender, I add the thawed shrimp and continue cooking about 4 minutes or until the shrimp look done. You don’t want to overcook the shrimp or they’ll be tough.
You can serve over rice for those who want it, but I usually eat it as is. Fewer calories and carbs that way. :)
