Saucy Chicken and Florets Recipe

Saucy Chicken and Florets Recipe

“Sometimes I make this simple dish lighter by using reduced-fat sour cream and cream of mushroom soup. For variety, try another veggie mix," writes Ruth Stallings from Spokane, Washington.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen cauliflower and broccoli florets
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (5 ounces each)
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/3 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup shredded Colby cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

Directions

  • 1. Place cauliflower and broccoli in a 2-1/2-qt. microwave-safe dish. Top with chicken. Cover and microwave on high for 10-14 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the soup, sour cream, garlic salt, onion powder and thyme. Drain chicken and vegetables; add soup mixture and stir to coat. Cover and microwave on high for 2-3 minutes or until heated through.
  • 3. Toss the bread crumbs, cheese and butter; sprinkle over chicken. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 45-60 seconds or until cheese is melted. Yield: 4 servings.
