Cheesy Chicken Casserole

Posted on March 3, 2014

This is an incredibly easy, fast and affordable one dish meal. It includes lean protein, fresh vegetables and whole grain pasta. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

• 1 lb. whole wheat pasta
• 3 T. olive oil
• 1 lb. boneless chicken breast cut into bite size pieces
• 2 c. vegetables in bite size pieces (spinach, broccoli, peas)
• 1 can cream of mushroom soup
• 1 can low fat milk
• Salt & pepper
• 1-2 c. low fat cheese as desired

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. Cook pasta (2-3 minutes less than package directions), drain and put aside.
3. Heat olive oil in a large pan. Toss chicken in flour, then put in the oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and cook until chicken is done. Put chicken in a big bowl, set aside.
4. Cook your vegetables in the same pan and add a little milk. This will thicken because of the flour from the chicken. Add the can of soup and the rest of the milk and bring to a simmer. Pour into bowl with chicken.
5. Add the pasta and mix everything together. Let sit for a little bit so pasta can absorb liquid. Put it into a casserole dish and heat until really hot and top with cheese. Cover until cheese is melted and serve.
