This is such a simple, yet delicious casserole to whip up, and I'm going to share one tip that will make it even easier. Buy a rotisserie chicken from Costco or your local deli! Pick the meat off the bone (depending on the size of the bird, you should get enough white and dark meat for two or three meals), then place the shredded chicken in small freezer bags to thaw and use as needed.
EASY CHICKEN DIVAN
2-3 cups COOKED broccoli (fresh or frozen) *
2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon)
3/4 tea. curry powder
3/4 tea. salt
1 sleeve Ritz crackers
1/4 cup melted butter
* If your family doesn't care for broccoli, 2 cans drained French Style Green Beans would be a good substitute.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook broccoli until tender. Arrange stalks in lightly greased
9x13 baking dish. Place shredded chicken on top. In a large bowl, combine soup, mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, curry, salt and pepper. Spoon over chicken. Combine crackers and melted butter in food processor until crushed. Sprinkle over top.
Bake, uncovered, 30 minutes or until warmed through and cracker topping is golden brown.
