Light King Ranch Chicken Casserole

Light King Ranch Chicken Casserole

Makes 8 servings Ingredients ·
1 large onion, chopped ·
1 large green bell pepper, chopped ·
Vegetable cooking spray ·
2 cups chopped cooked chicken breasts ·
1 (10-ounce) can fat-free cream of chicken soup, undiluted ·
1 (10-ounce) can fat-free cream of mushroom soup, undiluted ·
1 (10-ounce) can diced tomato and green chiles ·
1 teaspoon chili powder
· 1/2 teaspoon pepper
· 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
· 12 (6-inch) corn tortillas
· 1 (8-ounce) block reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, shredded
Sauté onion and bell pepper (I hate bell-peppers so I left those out!) in a large skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat 5 minutes or until tender.
Stir in chicken and next 6 ingredients; remove from heat.

I actually made the "filling" the night before and refrigerated overnight & reheated the next day, this is what it looked like after I re-heated.
Tear tortillas into 1-inch pieces; layer one-third tortilla pieces in bottom of a 13- x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.

Top with one-third chicken mixture and one-third cheese
Repeat layers twice.
Bake at 350° for 30 to 35 minutes or until bubbly. This was DELICIOUS, maybe one of my favorite Weight Watcher friendly recipes!
Note: Freeze casserole up to 1 month, if desired. Thaw in refrigerator overnight, and bake as directed.

30 Day Challenge ~~Winner~~

I am so excited that we are announcing the winner of the FIRST EVER FourFatChicks 30 Day Challenge! I've been trying to decide all week how we'd go about this, and figured I'd give all 3 of our WonderWomen 4 chances to win. One for each FatChick!

Then I cut each of the names up and placed them into an old Fat Free Cool Whip container which, if you pay close attention to in the video I call it a Fat Free Tupperware! OOPS!


To find out who won the drawing you have to watch and listen to me actually draw!

Congratulations, WINNER! See how I did that? Now you HAVE to watch the video or you'll never know who won & you won't be able to make fun of me for all the silly faces I make and my couuuuntry accent!

~ Winner ~ email your address to FourFatChicks @ gmail.com so you can collect your prize!

PS ~ I did several takes and I'M NOT KIDDING the same person won EVERY time! Weird, huh? Must be fate!

1st week back! ~ Lesli ~

This marks the end of my 1st week truly back in the swing of counting points! Let me be the first to say ~ dang! It's so not easy getting back into the routine of counting every single point, but you know what saved my points life? Writing down every single point! I wrote them in my notebook & in my iWatcher application on my phone. I was SHOCKED at how quickly points would go and how much I was VASTLY underestimating just by doing points in my head. Not sure why I trusted myself... I've never been good at math!


Week 1 down ~ stayed within my points and managed to exercise 6 of the 7 days!

Weight: -2
Waist: -.5inch

I decided this time around I was going to also measure myself so I could see the benefits of working out as well! The only other significant drop in measurements was my right thigh where I lost 1/2 an inch! Which is great news, because this is my goal dress and it is ~SNUG~ in the thighs and butt! {just to be sure I tried it on again yesterday & it's still snug!}


~ Next time you see this dress, it will be hanging perfectly from my body!
{WINNER of the 30 Day Challenge will (hopefully) be announced tomorrow! ~ it's been a much busier work week than I anticipated!}

French Fries (UN-fried)!!!

Now I must admit it's NOT a good option to eat french fries on a daily basis, but I know sometimes you just GOTTA have them. And I'm excited to say that I've found a frozen brand that is Weight Watcher friendly.

If you do the BAKED option, these fries are 150 calories, 5 grams of fat & 2 grams of fiber per serving (11 fries) which eaquals 3 points. So if you have a light point lunch you can have 22 french fries, which is probably more than a small order at fast food joint, for only 6 points! I LOVE it.

~30 Day Challenge~ SEPTEMBER {Complete!}

WAAAA HOOOO! That's what the end of my 30 Day Challenge calendar said! And if you ever wondered just how beautiful I am after I go for a run/walk and then do arms with Jackie Warner ~ now you know!



Girls ~ WE.DID.IT! I am so proud of each of you for setting a lofty goal and accomplishing it. Do not beat yourself up if you didn't work out every day, I personally had to skip some days, but the point is ~ I worked out MUCH more regularly this month than I have in MANY months! That's something to be proud of, and you should pat yourself on the back! Reward yourself with... a walk outside in this beautiful fall weather. You were hoping I'd say a chocolate milkshake or something? NOPE ~ October is here and that's where it all comes together with our eating good AND working out!



SO ~ if you participated, please please please let us know! You do not have to post your calendars today, but direct us to your last calendar post so we can see your accomplishment and pick a winner! Also, for those who participated and are not bloggers, please let us know how your month went so we can include you in the running for the Target $Gift Card$!
