Cock-A-Doodle-Delish Dish

Wow, so first a word about my previous Ham Soup recipe post. My co-workers loved it. A few people didn’t just compliment it–they raved about it! Maybe my taste buds are the ones that are out of whack?

Tonight I made a chicken broccoli hotdish (that’s a “casserole” for all you non-Minnesotans). I’ll bring it in again to work tomorrow, where my co-workers will have to re-heat it to eat it (I’m a poet and don’t know it!).

It was delightful–so yummy! And, it’s the first time I had a flashback to my mom while eating it. I managed to make an item that tasted like hers so much that my tastebuds opened up a portal in my memory and brought me back to sitting at my mom’s dining room table, eating this dish. It made me sad. I miss my mom so much. I am glad I was able to duplicate this recipe well enough to bring back memories of her beautiful spirit.

Easy Chicken Divan

  • 2 packages frozen broccoli (or 2 bunches fresh)
  • 2 cups sliced cooked chicken (3 breasts)
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 cup salad dressing (I assumed the recipe meant Ranch and that’s what I used–Buttermilk Ranch to be exact)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheese
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter

 Cook and dice chicken first (I baked it in the oven for 30 minutes at 375 for 10 minutes and 350 for the last 20 minutes).
