Low Calorie Asian Chicken Casserole

Updated on April 1, 2014
A satisfying meal for lunch or dinner.
A satisfying meal for lunch or dinner.

This recipe is an alternative for those who love to eat egg fu yung but hate the mess of frying or the extra calories from oil. Calories can be adjusted even lower by making the "crust" with a ½ cup of rice per serving, but as is 1/8 of this casserole with ¼ cup of gravy is just under 400 calories. Its texture and flavors will make you think you're eating comfort food.

      Hi Peach,

      It takes a little time to put together, but I like it because I can get the kitchen cleaned up while it bakes. It's a good dish to serve when company is coming, too, because you can do all the work ahead of time. You'll have to let me know how you like it.
