I modified a family favorite that had WAY too much fat and calories. I lightened it up to make it WW friendly and we were amazed at how much we loved it! It's 5 points per serving. Edit: I ran this recipe through the recipe builder at the WW site, which said it was 3 points per serving.
- 1 tablespoon light butter
- 1⁄2-1 cup onion, chopped

This is one of my oldest son's favorite dinners. I've made the skinny version twice. The first time I followed the recipe exactly, but it didn't have enough chicken - he complained. The second time I used 2 chicken breast halves (I used boneless, skinless breasts) and it was perfect! I also made sure I used a casserole dish that was the right size and not too big. I had planned on taking the leftovers to work, but there weren't any leftovers. I'll be using this recipe from now on.
