I made something LIKE a green bean casserole a few months ago. Cooked french cut green beans and fresh chopped mushrooms (cooked), mixed together with 2 wedges of laughing cow lite cheese and some black pepper, onion powder, salt. It was pretty good...
I am going to bump the thread that has all the good Thanksgiving recipes on it..

6 cups frozen cut green beans.

Thanks. I'm looking for one without the Medifast meals included in it though. I don't order any of the cream of....soups. Thats the one I saw with the Cream of Chicken soup in it...
It's a tough one. Most of the ingredients are pretty standard in a green bean casserole. But it needs something to hold it together. You could just roast up the veggies with a little EVOO and sprinkle with some parmesan cheese. You could try using some 0 fat yogurt or sour cream seasoned with some poultry seasoning or whatever spices you like. I'm thinking if you used the quantity of veggies listed below, mix with 1/2 C seasoned sour cream or greek yogurt and maybe some chicken or veggie stock (shouldn't need much) you might be ok.
Bake for 30 minutes then Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese and broil to get a nice brown crust right before serving..
If I get some time, I'll try to figure out what the calories/carbs on this would be later today...
Made myself curious so I put together a recipe on Livestrong.com. This is for 1/2 C serving. Little high on carbs..

Heat green beans in microwave, mix cream cheese and then chicken, heat for another 2 minutes. Top with Shredded cheese..
I tried RG's (I think it was hers...) recipe for Chicken Cheesy Brocmush Bake last night and it was really really good...Green bean casserole is a traditional dish for Thanksgiving at my house so I was thinking that this recipe would work with green beans, too. The original recipe makes 4 servings, so I'm planning on just not using the 20oz of chicken, and exchanging the broccoli with green beans, of course you'd have to count the lite Laughing Cow cheese as your HF, and the shredded cheese toward your Lean. The original recipe is below....
Chicken Cheesy Brocmush Bake makes 4 servings.
20oz chicken strips.
1 tbsp olive oil.
1 cup chicken broth.
2 cups sliced portabella mushrooms.
1 tbsp minced garlic.
4 wedges Lite Laughing Cow chees.
4 tbsp dijon mustard (optional).
8 cups broccoli florets.
4 oz reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese.
Saute chicken breast strips in pan with 1 tbsp olive oil, remove when done and set aside.
Steam 8 cups broccoli florets until almost done (6-7 minutes).
Add 1 cup chicken broth to saute' pan.
Add 2 cups mushrooms, 1 tbsp minced garlic, 4 wedges Laughing Cow cheese, and 4 tbsp dijon mustard, and simmer until mushrooms are mostly cooked and cheese is melted.
Weigh out 20ozs chicken and combine with broccoli in saute mixture, stir well to mix.
Spray a baking dish with Pam and add entire contents of saute pan to dish.
Sprinkle top with 4 oz reduced fat cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes..
The "Cheesy Brocomush Bake" sounds wonderful....I may have to try it for Thursday...
