Chicken Divan

Chicken Divan is one of my kids' favorite meals.  My husband does not care for it, so we usually have this on nights when my husband has to work.  I also make this in the crockpot on busy sports nights.  It is a great one dish meal, but in the summer, taking advantage of our fresh garden produce, I usually add some fresh side dish.  In the winter, I serve it as is, with no complaints from the kids.   

Chicken Divan

2 c cooked rice (long grain is best)
1 10 oz. pkg. frozen broccoli
3 boned, skinned chicken breasts, cooked and cut into bite size pieces
1 can cream of chicken soup (or make your own!)
1/2 c mayonnaise
1/2 t lemon juice
1/2 t curry powder
3/4 c shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 c soft bread crumbs

Layer rice and broccoli in a square baking dish (I use an 11x7 glass dish).  Layer chicken over broccoli.  Mix soup, mayo, lemon juice and curry powder and pour over all.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Top with bread crumbs.  Bake at 350 degress for 25 - 30 minutes. 

To make in crockpot - Mix broccoli, rice, chicken, soup, mayo, lemon juice and curry powder together.  Place in crockpot.  Top with cheese and bread crumbs.  Cook on Low for 3 - 4 hours. 

Serve with sliced tomatoes and cucumber salad (diced cucumbers tossed with ranch dressing).  A great simple dessert - No Bake Oatmeal Cookies.
