My Grandmother got this recipe from a lady who went to our congregation. She made it so often for my sister that my sister got sick of it. Grammy was like that – once she found a dish that company liked, she made it every time they came over. I don’t get to make this one much – no one in my family but me likes curry and broccoli. But this is an excellent, excellent dish.
2 packages frozen broccoli (14 oz total), or one large head of fresh broccoli
2 cups cooked chicken (three breasts)
2 cans cream of chicken soup (*)
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp curry powder
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup mayonnaise
3/4 cup bread crumbs (*)
2-3 tbsp melted butter or margarine
Cook broccoli to desired tenderness. Arrange on greased casserole dish, place chicken on top. Combine soups, mayo, lemon juice and curry. Mix and pour over broccoli and chicken. Sprinkle on cheese. Combine bread crumbs and melted butter, sprinkle over top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
(*) For Gluten Free, omit the bread crumbs and use a gluten-free cream soup.
