Mom's Divine Chicken Divan (or turkey)

This is one of our families favorite casseroles.
This recipe originates from my mom,
I only added the breadcrumb mixture for the top.
A great meal for a weeknight or a yummy way to use up that leftover turkey from the holidays.

Mom’s Divine Chicken Divan

1 pkg. frozen broccoli pieces OR 2-3 cups of chopped fresh broccoli
3-4 cooked chicken breasts, shredded OR 3 cups of leftover Turkey, shredded
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 C. mayonnaise
1-2 T. lemon juice
1 C. bread crumbs (yummy with Italian flavored)
2 T. butter
1 1/2 C. grated mild cheddar cheese

Layer broccoli in a casserole dish and semi cook in the microwave.
Layer cooked & shredded chicken on top of broccoli.
Mix soup, mayo & lemon juice in a seperate bowl, then spread over chicken.
Sprinkle cheese on top.
In a small bowl melt butter in the microwave and mix with breadcrumbs. Spread bread crumb mixture over all.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour.
Serve on top of steamed rice.

Made it, loved it. I had this all the time as a kid and just never bothered looking for the recipe. I only had to buy broccoli. Will be adding this to our "favorites" file.
