This is one of those recipes I thought was already on the blog. Because I make it almost once a week. I almost always have all the ingredients and my kids love it. Something all of them will eat?!!! And Brian and I like it too. It takes a little prep time and almost an hour in the oven, but I it's one of the best things for a piano lesson night. (We usually have it with rolls. Always from the freezer. Never make rolls and Chicken Divan in the same afternoon.)
3 1/2 - 4 c. cooked rice
1 1/2 c. broccoli florets (I always use fresh broccoli and microwave it with a little water for 3 min.)
1 1/2 c. cooked chicken, cubed (Costco rotisserie chicken, of course)
1 c. mayonnaise
1 c. cream of chicken soup
2 T. lemon juice (I use fresh lemons)
1 c. half and half (you can use regular milk) *I add half-and-half until it's a saucy enough to pour.
2 tsp. yellow curry
1 1/2 c. cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 c. bread crumbs
Layer rice, chicken, and broccoli in a casserole dish (in that order). Whisk sauce together until it's smooth, then pour over the rice, chicken, and broccoli. Top with grated cheese, then bread crumbs. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes.
