Chicken Divan

2-3 chicken breasts cooked and shredded
½ frozen bag of broccoli (can use fresh), cooked slightly
1 can cream of chicken soup
3/4 cup mayo
1/4 cup grated cheese
3/4 cup bread crumbs
1 Tbs melted butter
2 Tbs lemon juice

Arrange chicken in bottom of greased 8 x 8 pan.  Place broccoli on top of chicken. Combine soup, mayo, cheese, lemon juice and heat until cheese melts and everything is smooth. Pour over chicken and broccoli.  Mix melted butter and bread crumbs together. Sprinkle over the top. Bake, covered with tinfoil at 350 for 25-30 minutes.

*I had some leftover grilled chicken from the other night and a bunch of fresh broccoli that I wanted to use so we thought we'd give this a try.  It was simple and easy--at first my 6 year old wasn't too eager to try it, but with the first bite in his mouth he said, "Yummmm."  This went together fast.  The only change I would make is less bread crumbs--maybe 1/4 of a cup.  Be sure to serve with potatoes and fruit or another filler to offset the richness of this meal.  I didn't cook the broccoli beforehand or cover with tinfoil and it turned out just fine.
