Chicken Divan

Serves 6 to 8

Preheat oven to 300

6 whole chicken breastsCook chicken breasts, skin side up in preheated oven for 1 hour and 10 min. Cool, remove skin, and pull meat off in chunks.

broccoli*Cut up 1 medium head broccoli into small pieces and cook lightly - they should still be quite crisp.

Drain broccoli well; place in bottom of casserole dish, and cover with chicken chunks.

cream of chicken soup
1 cup of Best Foods Mayo
1/2 tsp. curry
1 Tbl of lemon juice
Mix two cans of cream of chicken soup, mayo, curry and lemon juice.

Pour over chicken and broccoli layers.

1/2 cup grated cheese
      (sharp cheddar)
1/2 c bread crumbs
Sprinkle cheese on top of casserole and top with bread crumbs.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until bubbly.

Do -not- bake more than 25 minutes, or you will get dried out chicken and mushy broccoli.

Serve with a salad and some bread. Enjoy!!

* you may use two (10 oz) packages of frozen broccoli, but cook VERY lightly - just enough to take the frost off.

** I sometimes make this with just four whole chicken breasts, and adjust the soup to one and one half cans, leaving all other ingredients the same.
