Description

A family recipe that will surprise you with a little curry flavor.

 


Ingredients

1 large bag of frozen broccoli – do not skimp
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
Pepper to taste
1 can condensed Campbell’s cream of chicken soup 1 can condensed Campbell’s cream of Celery soup 1 cup mayonnaise – half that amount if you like 

1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 – 3/4 teaspoon curry powder
3 or more shakes of Tabasco
1 heaping cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese that you shred 3/4 cup bread crumbs
4 tablespoons of butter
Pam for the casserole dish
2 tablespoons olive oil to cook chicken 


Instructions

  • Preheat the over to 350°. 
  • Cook the broccoli in the microwave and drain, if necessary. 
  • Slice the chicken breasts in half and then into bite sized pieces. 
  • Sauté chicken in pan – doing only a little at a time so that it will brown. 
  • Sprinkle one side with pepper as they cook, but do not add any salt as the recipe is salty enough with the soups. 
  • Remove to a plate as the batches are done. 
  • In a bowl stir the soups, mayonnaise, lemon juice, Tabasco, and curry powder together until thoroughly mixed. 
  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan, remove from the heat and stir in the breadcrumbs until they are coated with butter. 
  • Spray your baking dish with Pam, or coat with more butter, and then layer the casserole in this order from bottom to top: 
  • Broccoli, chicken, mixed wet ingredients, cheese, buttered bread crumbs. 
  • Bake for 45 minutes or until bubbling hot. Let it sit for a few minutes before you dig in, or you will burn your mouth and be going “Hassafrassahassahassa” at the table.
