Ingredients in Weight Watchers Chicken Vegetable Casserole
- Mushrooms: Fresh mushrooms are a must for this recipe. I like to do a mixed blend of mushrooms, split between baby Bella and white mushrooms. You are welcome to mix the mushrooms too, or just choose your favorite type.
- Bell peppers: Bell peppers are loaded with vitamins and minerals, and are especially high in vitamin C. All bell peppers offer a slightly different taste. We love using an orange and green pepper, but you are welcome to use whatever color peppers you prefer.
- Cauliflower: Purple cauliflower is perfect for this recipe. Usually we choose regular cauliflower for a side dish, but the purple cauliflower is delectable when baked.
- Onion: We prefer the flavor of yellow sweet onions, as they aren’t as overpowering as white onions.
- Zucchini: Zucchini is low in calories, but is full of fiber which helps us feel full longer. Not everyone enjoys zucchini, so if you prefer to pass on this hearty vegetable, feel free to omit it from your casserole.
- Potatoes: Mini purple yellow, and red. You can often find these tiny fingerling potatoes in a package at the grocery store.
- Chicken sausage: We love using chicken sausage as a lean meat option for this casserole. We prefer the chicken mixture with Italian and red pepper and garlic sausage flavors, however you are welcome to use what you can find at your grocery store.
How to Make Weight Watchers Chicken Vegetable Casserole in the Oven
- Preheat oven to 375º F.
- Chop all of your veggies up small. Small is the key to even cooking, especially for the potatoes! Stir to mix up vegetables.
- Spray olive oil in the bottom of your baking dish or casserole dish and add vegetable mixture. Place in the preheated oven to bake and set the timer to cook for 20 minutes.
- Check your vegetable mixture after 20 minutes, and every 5 minutes after that until they’re done. I used a fork to see how soft the potatoes and cauliflower were before pulling them out of the oven.
- For your sausage, you could add it to the baking dish if you’re cooking a smaller batch of vegetables. We were feeding four, so I decided to cook the sausage on the grill (which is our favorite, anyway).
- When the chicken sausage was done, add it to the top of the baked vegetables.
- This main course dinner is very versatile. You can use whatever veggies you have on hand and place them in the casserole dish. I think broccoli or green beans would be delicious in this chicken vegetable casserole.
- This recipe doesn’t include a dairy products like cheese, sour cream, or skim milk. We kept this casserole dairy free and without a creamy sauce. If we added dairy or creamy sauces to this casserole, it would lower the health benefits and make the vegetables soggy after they bake. We love the simplicity of our chicken vegetable casserole.
- If you do have any casserole left overs, we recommend storing the remaining casserole portion in an airtight container in the refrigerator. These leftovers are best if you eat within 4-5 days.
- We cook our chicken sausage outside of the casserole dish, as we prefer to grill our meats (and this leaves more room for veggies in your pan!). You’re welcome to slice it up and stick it in the pan, or another pan if you’d like – whatever your preference is.
- This chicken sausage is the perfect blend for the chicken casserole, a little spicy, but not enough to overwhelm the natural flavors of the baked vegetables. If you don’t like chicken sausage, or if you have a lower point option available in your local grocery store, definitely take advantage of that.
- We feel this recipe has plenty of flavor without adding any additional seasonings to the casserole. However, if you prefer, you could lightly sprinkle garlic powder or salt before you cook the chicken and vegetable casserole.
- If you do modify the recipe, just note that you’ll need to recalculate your ww points. Our ww points are based on the serving suggestion, serving size, and ingredients found in the original recipe. They’re calculated using the exact products we use in the recipe, not nutrition values below.
