Ingredients

8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed and cut into thirds lengthwise

salt – pepper to taste

1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 cup light sour cream

1/2 cup light mayo

1 T onion powder

1 T poultry seasoning

1 T fresh lemon juice

1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheddar cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 350F/175C. Trim all visible fat and unwanted parts from chicken breasts, then cut each piece in thirds diagonally.Spray 9 x 12 inch glass or crockery casserole dish with nonstick spray and arrange chicken pieces in a single layer. Season chicken with salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste.Combine the cream of chicken soup, light sour cream, light mayo, onion powder, poultry seasoning, lemon juice, and 1 cup of grated low fat cheese to make the sauce.Spread sauce mixture over the chicken, cover the pan with foil or a tight-fitting lid, and bake 25 minutes. After 25 minutes, use a fork to separate the chicken pieces so the sauce runs down between the, cover again, and bake for about 20 minutes more.Then remove the foil, top with 1/2 cup reserved cheese and bake 15-20 minutes more, until cheese is melted and top is slightly browned. (You can use the broiler if you want to speed it up a little, but watch it carefully!)We ate this with brown rice and asparagus, which was a good combination for the rich chicken and sauce.
