Swiss Chicken Casserole

Have I said how much I love my crock-pot? Maybe you've already figured that out. My life is just soo much easier and I couldn't live without it! I've made this dish before in the oven and it's good either way..oven or crock-pot.

When you look at the nutritional values, I know that 524 calories seems high. If you factor in that it's the main part of the meal, I don't think it's bad. You can always pair it with other light items. I also "lightened" up the recipe by using a much lower fat cheese, soup, milk, and butter. The calories for my dish are a little lower than what the recipe specifies, but I don't know exactly what they are. It also comes in at 7 Weight Watchers points.
