Chicken Divan

This is one of those classics that a lot of people make, but I never had a good recipe. That is until our friends, the Shanks, had us over for lunch after church a few months ago. This one is soo yummy! Even my husband, who despises broccoli, says it's okay for me to make it! (you don't realize how huge this is, unless you've heard my husband talk about broccoli) Enjoy--we do!!

Chicken Divan

3 cups rice, cooked
1 pound bag of frozen broccoli
3 cups of chicken, cooked and cubed
2 cans of cream of chicken soup
1 cup of mayonnaise
1 tsp of lemon juice
1 tsp. curry powder
¾ cup shredded cheddar
¾ cup breadcrumbs (actual pieces of bread works best)
2 Tbsp butter

1. After cooking rice and chicken, in a 9 x 13 baking dish layer: rice, broccoli, then chicken.
2. Combine soup, mayo, lemon juice, and curry powder. Pour over chicken. Sprinkle with cheese then breadcrumbs. Dot with butter.
3. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, until bubbly and bread crumbs look golden.

From my friend, Bonnie Shank
