SMOTHERED CHICKEN WITH PIEROGIES

  • 1 dozen Mrs. T's frozen Potato and Cheddar Cheese pierogies
  • 1 can (10 3/4 oz) low-fat cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can (4 oz) sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 cups cubed or shredded cooked chicken
Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 2-quart casserole with cooking spray. Thaw pierogies in boiling water for 5 minutes, drain, and place in casserole dish.

In a large saucepan, combine soup, mushrooms, peas and chicken. Cook, stirring, about 5 minutes or until heated through. Pour over pierogies. Bake 15 minutes.

4 servings, 7 POINTS each

A pierogie is like a Polish ravioli, a dough pillow filled with flavored mashed potatoes. Look for them in the frozen foods section of your store. There are several kinds you can try, but READ THE BOX. Not all pierogies have the same points. Feel free to use other kinds in this recipe, but make certain to re-calculate your points based on the kind of pierogies you use. The traditional
way to serve pierogies is to fry them in a little butter and serve with pan-fried onions. Enjoy!

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
