This quick and easy version of chicken divan is a most requested recipe in our home. It's a great way to put leftover chicken to use! The amounts for chicken and broccolli vary because I use whatever I have. This meal can be prepared in less than fifteen minutes, which makes it a favorite to cook as much as a favorite to eat! Enjoy!
2-4 cups chopped, cooked chicken
4-6 cups fresh or frozen broccolli (A large bag of frozen broccolli is perfect!)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 soup can of milk
1/2 cup mayonaise
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. - 1 tbsp. curry (to taste... for us the more the better!)
1 tsp. black pepper
2 cups shredded cheese (I use colby-jack)
3 slices of bread, toasted and shredded, if desired
Steam the broccolli to give it a head start in baking. In a large bowl, mix the soups, milk, mayo, curry and pepper. Stir in the cooked chicken, brocolli and cheese. Top with bread crumbs and more cheese, if desired. Cover and bake at 350° until bubbly (about 30 minutes).
