Ingredients

    1 package frozen mixed vegetables
    1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, chopped into bite-size pieces

    black pepper to taste
    1/4 cup light cream cheese

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Prepare the mixed vegetables according to package directions, then drain any excess water.
Meanwhile, preheat a medium skillet over medium-high, then coat with cooking spray.
Add the chicken to the pan, season with the no-salt seasoning blend and black pepper, and cook until no longer pink, about 10 minutes.
Remove from heat, then stir in the vegetables, cream cheese, broth, and rice.
Transfer to a greased 8x8" baking dish and top with the breadcrumbs. Bake 15 minutes, until the breadcrumbs are golden brown.
Portion size: About 1 cup

    Those who think this a "lot of calories" are perhaps forgetting this would be your main dish. Your main dish would have more calories and bulk than say your fruit or vegetables; which if you are on Weight Watchers are considered as free or 0 points. What do you want? Everything isn't zero calorie.. - 1/23/13

    Delish! And for you who are condemning the carbs - remember the brown rice and WHOLE WHEAT bread crumbs are the good carbs. Full of the energy you need, keeps you fuller longer and should get several servings per day. Calories are minimum - 360 for a MEAL, remember, not a side dish! - 1/23/13
