Hi, could you substitute cauliflower rice for this? Would it change the point value?

Hi Sarah

Yes, if you were to use Cauliflower Rice it would alter the points.

It would be 2 SmartPoints for the BLUE AND PURPLE PLAN-3 Smartpoints per serving for the GREEN plan.

Thank you so much

Hi, do.you.have the calorie, fat, sugar, carbs info so I can track this meal on the WW app? Thanks!

Hi Suzette, the way the points are calculated is based off the ingredients used and importing the ingredients into the recipe builder on the WW app and updating the serving size. I have added the nutritional info as well..it's at the bottom of the recipe card. However, please note the nutritional info was not used to calculate the WW points. The reason for this-there 0 point foods that are included in the recipe that don't need to be counted but are included in the nutritional info.

I have made this recipe for years and my family loves it. The one difference is you cut the chicken breasts into pieces. My recipes calls for leaving them whole but then the rice underneath sometimes comes out not done enough because it did n't have any sauce on it.

Hi, did you use nonfat greek yogurt or plain nonfat or would it make a difference also if I used 98% fat free cream of mushroom would it change the smart points, would using brown rice change cooking time and points?

thanks sounds delicious

I used nonfat Greek yogurt, but either one of them would work. IF you substituted it for the 98% fat free mushroom it increases the overall points by 5. Brown Rice higher in points depending on the brand used. You would want to check the points on the packaging. The cooking time would be the same as the white rice. Thank you
