Chicken Divan

I had Chicken Divan tonight that was on Tammy's site. This is the recipe straight from her site. I used peas too, but I really think that next time I will use broccoli that it would be lots better with that. Dh loves curry chicken so he really liked this dish. My kids even ate it. I think next time I will leave off the breadcrumbs too. I used Healthy Request Cream of Chicken. You really have to have the rice with this dish, it makes it so good. Dh also put Soy Sauce on it. So, I really think we will be making this again! I learned that my camera has a bunch of frames to use. I have had my camera for over a year and did not know it did that, so I was playing with that feature when I took this picture. Thanks Tammy for a great recipe recommendation!

Chicken Divan
2 packages frozen broccoli spears (I used frozen peas instead)
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1 can cream of chicken soup (if I had fat free soup I would have used it)
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
2 tablespoons grated Cheddar cheese (I used a little Parmesan as well, I did about 1 TBS cheddar cheese)
1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
Heat oven to 350° F. Steam broccoli until tender (about 2 minutes). Spray a 9- by 13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray. Drain broccoli and place in the bottom of the baking dish.
Boil chicken until done. Cut or shred into bite-sized pieces. Add to broccoli. Combine the yogurt with the soup and curry powder. Pour over the chicken and broccoli. Sprinkle the cheese on top. Top with the bread crumbs. Bake for 30 minutes.
Yield: 4 servings

I really want to start trying new recipes....But, I am still losing, so that is important too. You are so energetic about your meal planning and I so admire you for that!
