Quick Chicken Divan

Quick Chicken Divan
Quick, easy, and satisfying.    It seems as if I am always running short on time.  I can have my plans laid out but something seems to turn up and I have a change of plans.  Why can't weeks or days go as planned?

 Last night, I served some Quick Chicken Divan. This was a perfect recipe for easy, quick, and delicious.   With this dish, the cleanup is minimal.  Start by preparing some steamer frozen broccoli according to package directions.  Place the broccoli in the bottom of a greased baking pan.  Next arrange the cooked chicken over the broccoli.  In a small bowl, you mix well some mayonnaise, cream of chicken soup, and lemon juice.   Spread the sauce over the chicken.  You sprinkle some cheese over the the chicken.  Breadcrumbs mixed with butter are sprinkled over the top of the casserole.  Bake at 350 degrees F until the casserole has been heated through.  Serve.

You have a delicious casserole  for dinner.  I served mine with some rice.
