French Onion Chicken Casserole Recipe – 9 Smart Points

French Onion Chicken Casserole

It may be in the high 80’s this week, but I’ve been in need of some comfort food lately. And while enjoying one of my favorite soups, French Onion – which I ADORE, I got the idea for a simple casserole that incorporated some of those divine flavors. I wanted it to have some protein, and I needed it to be kid-friendly too, because it just makes my life so much easier when the whole family eats the same thing. So I tossed around a few ideas and ingredients, and the end result is this creamy, comforting French Onion Chicken Casserole Recipe. It was actually quite easy, and required very basic ingredients…most of which I almost always have on hand. I love serving this with some roasted asparagus or broccoli for a complete meal. And if you love onion flavored dishes as much as I do, try my Roasted French Onion Potatoes – they are soooooo GOOD. Enjoy!

  1. Let me preface this by I love this website and have never disliked a recipe till now. I followed the instructions and it did not say to cook anything prior like the rice or onions and even after adding an extra 30 minutes the rice and onions were crunchy and the casserole was soupy. Total recipe fail. Next time I would sauté the onions and cook the rice and reduce the liquids by half.

    Why can’t I print your recipes?
    No print button?

  3. I’m confused. The recipe says it makes 4 servings, 9 smart points per serving. Then at the end of the recipe, the notes say 4 smart points per serving.

    Can you clarify? I’m thinking maybe it makes 8 servings at 4 SP, or 4 servings at 9 SP.

  4. Looks like steps 4 and 5 may be wrong, since total cook time is supposed to be 60 minutes

    I realize I am sometimes “blind”, but where is the PRINT option? Many thanks!!

  6. Frances McManus says:

    What is the sodium content for this recipe? Thank you.

  7. This looks so good but I am confused, is it 4 smart points or 9? Your title says 9 but the recipe shows 4. I am anxious to try it. Love recipes that you have all the ingredients on hand. Thank you. Really enjoy your recipes!
