Two Super Recipes

I love I go there when I'm bored with our current rotation of dinners. Last week I wanted to find new ways to use chicken breasts, and found these two recipes which turned out to be really tasty. Maybe not the healthiest, but they sure do taste good.

Broccoli and Chicken Casserole
-steamed broccoli
-cooked cubed chicken breasts
-1 can low fat cream of broccoli soup
-1/3 c. milk
-1 c. shredded cheddar
-1 TB melted butter mixed with 1/3 c. bread crumbs

Mix together soup and milk, add to broccoli and chicken. Top with cheese, then breadcrumb mixture. Cook at 450 for 20 minutes. YUM.

Chicken Enchilada Casserole

-cubed chicken breasts
-fresh cilantro
-1 can black beans, rinsed
-1 can enchilada sauce
-corn tortillas
-1 c. fat free sour cream
-1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar

Cook chicken with cumin. Add cilantro and black beans. In casserole dish, layer 1/2 enchilada sauce, 4 corn tortillas, chicken/bean mix, 1/2 cheese, 1/2 sour cream, and layer again. Top with foil, cook at 375 for 30 minutes. Take off foil, top with a little more cheese and stick back in to melt it. Let it set for about 5 minutes after taking out of the oven. Again, YUM!

I'm always looking for good casserole recipes (I'm such an old lady!!!) I just think they are so easy to prepare and a good option for nights I don't feel like doing much for dinner. Anyone have any other good ones? Vegetarian ones?

Those recipes seem reasonably healthy to me - but then again I'm not a calorie counter, and I love casseroles (and

I think it's all the cheese that I find maybe not the healthiest. But, I am fond of cheese and don't care all that much :)
