Easy Chicken Divan

  • 4 chicken breasts, cook then cool and cut up
  • 1 pkg. Chicken Rice-A-Roni prepare as package directs
  • 20oz. frozen chopped broccoli, cooked
  • 1 c. mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp. curry powder (it makes all the difference!)
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • cheddar or mozzarella cheese, grated
  • fine bread crumbs or crushed croutons/dressing cubes
Spread prepared Rice-A-Roni on the bottom of a 9"x13" pan. Spread cooked broccoli on top of rice. Mix the cut up chicken with mayonnaise, soup, curry powder, lemon juice. Spread chicken mixture on top of broccoli. Top with grated cheese and bread crumbs or croutons. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes.

This is straight from Aunt Diana's cookbook. Henri likes more chicken than rice, so I usually add a couple of more breasts...but you can modify for your family's tastes. It's one of my all-time favorites. It freezes well (before or after baking), and it's just as good the next day as leftovers.
