My husband is on Weight Watchers so I made this recipe with fat free zesty italian and fat free cream cheese and he thought it was GREAT! It is only 6 points per 3 ounce serving of chicken, for any other weight watchers out there!

This was so good. I modified the recipe a bit. The other reviews talked about how it was too rich and didn't reheat very well, so I used 8 oz. of lite Velveeta in place of the cream cheese. It created a very creamy sauce that reheated very well. Also, I made it low-fat by using reduced fat soup and reduced calorie salad dressing. VERY tasty! I'm going to try it again and freeze it for a friend who just had a baby!

This came out very well! I read all of the reviews first, so I added a few things. First I cut the cooking time on the chicken, and shredded it, but left it rather chunky. I added one whole can of chicken broth instead of a cup, and left simmering a little longer than an hour. (It wasn't dry AT ALL) I added some frozen green beans and peas in that last hour. Right before serving I stirred in some chopped, fresh cilantro...I had tasted it and it needed something, so I tried the cilantro and it was GREAT! I served it over some stuffed ravioli I had in the freezer--it was mozzarella and spinach ravioli, and I topped it all off with the herb and cheese mixture the ravioli came with. All in all, it came out great...my husband and I both had seconds (thirds...). ;o) I loved the sauce! Next time I'll try it with some chopped spinach mixed in... THANKS!
