Easy Chicken Divan

(adapted from a recipe in Better Homes and Gardens Casserole Cook Book, 1961)

2 pounds frozen broccoli
3 c sliced cooked chicken breasts (about 1-1/2 lbs raw boneless, skinless breasts)
2 cans condensed cream of chicken soup (or equivalent CREAM OF WHATEVER SOUP)
1 c mayo
1 t lemon juice
1/2 t curry powder
1/2 c shredded sharp cheddar (2 ounces)

Cook broccoli until done; drain. Arrange in a greased baking dish. Place chicken on top. Combine soup, mayo, lemon juice and curry powder; spoon over chicken. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes, or until thoroughly heated and bubbly.

Use turkey instead of chicken.
Use leftover chicken instead of the cooked chicken breasts.
Use fresh broccoli instead of frozen.
Use cauliflower instead of broccoli, or use a combination.
