Weight Watchers Friendly Chicken-Etti

This is a great recipe, and it's low in fat but still tastes great! It's called Chicken-Etti. The original recipe has one pound of full fat cheese, and it comes out a bit oily and greasy... This is great because it's less cheese, but less oily. I actually like it better with less cheese. Plus the cheese used in this is reduced fat cheese. It's also only 5 weight watcher points per serving!

* 18 oz cooked whole wheat spaghetti cooked in salt water, drained
* 2 cups 2%/reduced fat sharp cheddar (I bought the Kroger 2% sharp cheddar)
* 1 can cream of celery
* 11 ½ oz. of Foster Farms fully cooked grilled chicken strips, defrosted in the microwave, and cubed (if you don’t use the foster farms grilled chicken, the points won’t be the same. We bought our foster farms grilled chicken at Costco.)
* 1 can mild Rotel tomatoes with green peppers/chilis, with juice
* 1 cup chicken broth
* 1 green bell pepper, diced
* No added salt, or pepper.

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease, or spray a 13 x 9 pan.

Spread out your cooked, and drained pasta on the bottom of the pan.

In a 1 quart glass pyrex measuring cup, place the can of cream of celery, chicken broth, rotel tomatoes with juice, and whisk. Add 1 cup of cheddar to the liquid mixture and microwave for 2 minutes, stir, then cook for another 2 minutes or until the cheese is just barely melted.

Add the diced bell pepper to the hot liquid and stir.

Spread out the cubed chicken over the spaghetti and pour the sauce over the top. Stir it around a little bit, then top with the remaining 1 cup of cheddar cheese.

Bake for 30 minutes.
