This yummy casserole calls for raisins, but I sometimes like to substitute dried cranberries, or Craisins, instead—especially in the fall and during the holiday season.I also replaced regular Stove Top Chicken Stuffing Mix with the low sodium version which has 25% less sodium.To make this ahead, prepare the chicken and green bean mixture and store in a covered bowl in the refrigerator. When you are ready to bake the casserole, remove the chicken and green mixture from the fridge and add to a lightly greased baking dish. Prepare the stuffing mix topping and layer on top of the chicken mixture and then cover and bake as directed.Not everyone is a fan of water chestnuts, but we happen to really like them. If you prefer, you can try substituting and equal amount of bamboo shoots, celery or pecans to maintain a similarly crunchy texture. Be sure to adjust your WW Points accordingly when making any ingredient substitutions.Serving size: ⅙th casseroleClick here to see your WW Points for this recipe and track it in the WW app or site.7*PointsPlus (Old plan)
