I used to weigh 275 lbs. I lost 129 lbs by eating healthier & exercising. I don't try to be perfect, I just try to do better. This is one of my recipes from long ago, upgraded to better fit my new lifestyle.

1
Boil 1 piece of boneless chicken or turkey, with bay leave, pepper and paprika.  Save broth.  Chop chicken into small pieces and set aside. Or use leftovers or canned.
2
Use part of broth to make one box stove top stuffing.  Or use leftovers. Spread stuffing in bottom of 8x8 pan.
3
Mix chopped chicken with 1 can cream of soup, add ½ cup of corn (or other veggies). Season to taste.  Spread soup mixture in pan atop stuffing.
4
Use additional broth to make mashed potatoes, season with paprika and pepper, or other spices and herbs.  Or use leftovers. Spread atop soup mixture.  Sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese.

*Can be easily made to serve 6-8 by doubling recipe and using 9x13 pan.  Or, make a triple recipe and use two pans.  Doubling or tripling recipe and using more than one pan also allows you to serve one and freeze one for use later! Re-heats well in microwave.
