Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap

This is a major comfort food for me. When my mother in law hosts some kind of family gathering this is usually on the dinner table and I make a total pig out of my self.

There, I said it.

It's a great way to use the leftover roast chicken that you've boiled off the bone (please tell me your being a good frugalist and doing this) and even though I'm generally opposed to recipes with canned cream of "something" soup or that include mayo (blech), I'm going to eat those words with this recipe.....maybe twice.

Chicken Divan

3 cups cooked chicken
3 cups broccoli
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup mayo
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons curry powder
salt and pepper
1 1/2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
3 cups cooked rice
buttered bread crumbs (optional)

Place rice in the bottom of a greased 9 x 11 casserole dish. Top with chicken. Steam broccoli and place in a layer on top of the chicken. Mix both soups, mayo, lemon juice, curry powder, and salt and pepper. Pour this mixture over top of rice, chicken and broccoli. Top casserole with cheddar cheese and bread crumbs. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 40-45 minutes. Let sit for 5 minutes before serving.

Looks yummy. You can google and find recipes for homemade cream of chicken (or other) soup. And also homemade mayo. Then at least you have more control. :-) Maybe make them ahead and can for when you need a can. :-)
