This easy, healthy chicken divan is a family favorite. And a great way to use leftover chicken.
Rotisserie chickens are a dinner staple around here. So, I’m always looking for tasty Weight Watcher friendly ways to use the leftovers. Creamy comforting casseroles, like this easy healthy chicken divan, are always a hit.
The Skinny on Easy Healthy Chicken Divan
To make this easy healthy chicken divan lighter, healthier and more Weight Watcher friendly, I added more cooked broccoli.
And I used low-fat mayonnaise, reduced-fat cheddar cheese and 98% fat-free cream of chicken soup.
If you are not a fan of canned cream soups, you could always make your own low-fat bechamel sauce, like this one using olive oil and 1% milk from Martha Rose Shulman.
Add some cooked brown rice and a big tossed green salad to this easy healthy chicken divan casserole.
It’s a satisfying meal the whole family will love, if they are anything like mine.
