Easy Chicken Divan

I received the two GooseBerry cookbooks I had ordered last week after winning the contest....Slow Cookers, Casseroles and Skillets +Christmas with Family and Friends.......what great recipes!

Tonight I leafed through the Casserole book and found a recipe that I happened to have all the ingredients for....so thought I'd share it...tonight it was just the two of us, so halved the recipe....

Easy Chicken Divan

3 Boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and diced (I used some leftover chicken)
10 oz. package of frozen chopped broccoli, cooked and drained
2 cans cream of chicken soup
3/4 c. mayonnaise
1 t. lemon juice
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 c. Italian seasoned breadcrumbs (I used Panko crumbs)
1/4 c. butter, melted

Heat oven to 350. Toss cooked chicken and broccoli together. Mix soup, mayonnaise, and lemon juice well, mix into the chicken mixture. Pour into a greased 13" by 9" baking pan...top with cheese. Toss bread crumbs with melted butter, and sprinkle over the cheese..bake in a 350 oven for 25 to 30 minutes....

This was really good and very easy to make..I served it with green beans and an avocado salad...apple pie for dessert. It was fine, halved..and we had left overs for  tomorrow.....

Our weather is getting fall like more and more....the nights are getting cooler, down into the low 50s...which is chilly for us after all the hot weather.....the days are in the high 70s and 80s...tomorrow morning I am going to  help Alan re key a property in Poway..which is east of San Diego......he may have another job also..... I'll take the camera!
