Cindy's Casserole

This recipe is actually called Chicken Divan, but I got it from my aunt - Cindy...I have to give credit where credit is due!  I always remember having this at her house growing up so whenever I got married and was quickly running out of things to make for dinner I called her up for this easy casserole recipe.  I changed a couple things...added some extra veggies, healthy request soups, leaner protein & low fat cheese...the usuals!  This one is fairly low carb and you get your protein and veggies in one!

Me and Cindy @ my Bachelorette party...I don't normally wear veils and shirts with my name on them!
I didn't do too much measuring with this one, so I will do my best to guess!

1.5 lbs cooked shredded chicken (I boiled chicken breast.  Rotisserie chicken would work, but not as lean)
3 cups frozen broccoli, cooked
2 cans Healthy Request cream of chicken soup
3/4 cup mayonnaise (It was supposed to be 1 cup, but 3/4 worked well.  I use Kraft Olive Oil Mayo)
1 tsp lemon juice
1 cup low fat shredded cheddar
1 cup bread crumbs (I used plain Panko (Japanese bread crumbs) - low in sodium)

Once broccoli and chicken are cooked, place chicken then broccoli on bottom of 9x13 casserole dish.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, mix together soup, mayo and lemon juice.  Spread evenly on top of broccoli.


Sprinkle shredded cheese and breadcrumbs on top.

One of these days I will figure out how to take pictures without my shadow in them!  Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes.  Should be bubbly and browned on top.

I forgot to take the picture until after I started serving it...we were starving last night.
