Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

This is one of my favorite foods from my childhood. My mom made it as a casserole and today I decided to get brave (or lazy) and make it a crock pot recipe. It went swimmingly. My super-picky brother Stephen went back for seconds and even thirds - a very positive indication. Serve over white rice.

NOTE: If you have not tried Slow Cooker liners (made by Reynold's) you have got to pick some up. Perfectly slow cooked meals with NO mess! Heaven sent!

Crock Pot:
2 (10 oz.) packages of fresh broccoli (I used 1 bag of frozen broccoli and it worked great)
2 cups sliced chicken or chicken tenders
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 soup can water
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. curry powder
1 cup shredded cheese

Cover bottom of crock pot with broccoli. Arrange chicken on top of broccoli.

Combine soup, mayo, lemon juice and curry in a mixing bowl. Add water. Pour over chicken and broccoli. Slow cook.

Stir to mix chicken and broccoli with sauce. Top with cheese and paprika before serving.

Use ingredients from above except water.

Boil chicken to cook and chop into cubes. Cook broccoli until tender.

Arrange broccoli in a greased pan. Add chicken on top of broccoli.

Combine soup, mayo, lemon juice and curry. Pour mixture over chicken and broccoli. Sprinkle with cheese and paprika. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
