What’s for Dinner: Chicken Noodle Delight

whatsfordinnersmall.gifI found this recipe in Taste of Home’s Light and Tasty magazine. It’s a classic comfort food dish made over to be healthy using ingredients low in fat, calories and sodium.

Chicken Noodle Delight Recipe

4 cups uncooked yolk-free noodles

1 can reduced-fat, reduced sodium condensed cream of chicken soup

4 ounces reduced fat cream cheese, cubed

1 cup reduced fat sour cream

1 cup plain yogurt

1/4 cup fat-free milk

3 tbs of minced fresh parsley or 1 tsp of dried parsley

1 tsp of onion powder

1/4 tsp of salt

2 cups cooked, cubed chicken breast

1 cup reduced-fat butter, melted

Cook noodles according to package directions. In a large bowl mix together soup, cream cheese, sour cream, yogurt, milk, parsley, onion powder and salt. Stir in chicken. Drain noodles, toss with chicken mixture. Transfer to a 2 quart baking dish coated with non-stick cooking spray. Combine cracker crumbs with melted butter. Sprinkle over casserole. Bake at 35o degrees for 4o minutes of until heated through. 

I liked this dish a lot. I did think it needed more salt to really bring out the flavors. Next time I’ll either add more salt or not use reduced sodium soup. The magazine claims that this has 432 calories per 1 cup serving. That’s not bad when you consider it’s loaded with both cream cheese and sour cream.
