Welcome Home Sam!! CHICKEN DIVAN

Thanks Shayna for making all of us this wonderful meal. You are the best!!

1 package frozen broccoli florets, cooked (14 oz)
4-5 boneless chicken breasts, cooked and pulled into pieces
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup evaporated milk (powdered milk with less water will work as a substitute)
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 t lemon juice
1 can cream of chicken soup
buttered crumbs - I melt about 3/4 stick of butter and mix it with pre-made bread crumbs - those crumbs come in a cylinder shaped package, and I use about a third of it.

In 9x13 baking dish, place broccoli. Then cover with chicken. Cover with remaining ingredients mixed together. Sprinkle with buttered crumbs. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes.
