No. 464 - Curried Chicken Divan

prep time: 1 hourcook time: 40 Mtotal time: 1 H & 40 M

Ingredients:

  • 1 cups cooked rice (white or brown)
  • 2-3 uncooked chicken breasts
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 large head broccoli
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp curry powder (divided)
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup ***
  • 4 slices bread
  • 4 tbsp butter, melted

Instructions:

Assemble prepared ingredients:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and put the chicken breasts straight onto the paper. Drizzle with a smidge bit of olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and half the curry powder. Bake for 30 minutes or until chicken reaches 165 internal temperature.
While chicken is baking:
  1. Shred cheese onto a piece of wax paper, set aside.
  2. Trim broccoli, place in a microwave safe container with a splash of water. Cover and steam for 6 minutes or whatever your microwave takes to produce a crisp tender broccoli.
  3. Cut bread pieces into cubes. Set aside.
Assembly:
  1. In a large mixing bowl, add rice, broccoli and chicken which has been cut into cubes after cooling enough to handle. Add cream of mushroom soup, stir to combine, add 1/2 can of water to the mixture. This should be fairly loose, as the rice will absorb some extra liquid. Add cheddar cheese, combine all ingredients well.
  2. Place mixture into a greased casserole dish. Rinse mixing bowl, place butter in the bowl, and melt in the microwave, 30-40 seconds. Add cubed bread crumbs, stir to coat and top casserole, spreading evenly. Bake 30 minutes uncovered or until bubbly and breadcrumbs have browned.
  3. Enjoy!

NOTES:

Try adding some dry mustard to the mix. *** Substitute for Cream of Mushroom Soup 1 tbsp flour, 1 tspb butter, 2 cups chicken broth, 1/2 package of mushrooms, sauteed.
