Low-Fat Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by CookyCookie

A low-fat, high taste twist on sour cream & chicken casseroles. When I cook the chicken, I usually pan-sear with salt, pepper, and spices like garlic or onion powder. This provides a little extra yummy taste to the overall dish. Wonderful with green vegetables or salad as sides.

Tastes pretty great for being lower in fat (I did add shopped onions to improve the flavor). For 2 1/2 cups of chicken, 2 cups of fat free sour cream seemed like a lot, so I used about 1 3/4 cups. The casserole was still super runny and liquidy. I had to serve it using a slotted spoon to leave behind the extra liquid. Next time, I'd either double the chicken or halve the amount of sour cream. Thanks for posting!
