Nana’s Recipe Box

It’s been awhile since I posted a recipe so I thought I would share a new favorite with you.  Like most of you I am usually in a rush and I like things that are quick and easy to make. I also love casseroles! Remember, I feed a lot of guys at this house and the word “casserole” has them rolling their eyes and hopping in the car to sneak out to Micky D’s…usually.  This casserole they actually like. Hope your family enjoys it too!

Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

6 pieces chicken breasts
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/3 c. mayonnaise
1 tbsp. lemon juice
Grated onion to taste (optional)
1 (10 oz.) pkg. chopped broccoli, thawed and drained
1 to 1 1/2 c. grated cheese (Longhorn)
1/2 c. fine bread crumbs

Cook chicken pieces by boiling and then lower to a simmer for about 35 minutes. Remove skin (if there is any) and chop into bite size pieces.  Put chicken in bottom of 9 by 12 inch casserole dish. Combine soups, mayo, lemon juice and onion in bowl. Pour this over chicken. Then spread broccoli as the third layer. Top with cheese and bread crumbs.

Bake uncovered at 350 for 50 to 55 minutes.
