Amish Chicken Broccoli Casserole

Here it is; the first ever recipe posted here that has meat! Enjoy! This one is a crowd pleaser and I am almost always asked for the recipe after serving it. I got this one from a little booklet called Cook Books by Good Books, Casseroles.

1 1/4 lb fresh broccoli chopped and cooked
4-6 cups cooked chicken, coarsely diced
6 tbls butter or margarine
6 tbsp flour
2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3 cups milk
1/2 cup mayo
1 tsp lemon juice
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
2 tbs butter or margarine
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1. Layer broccoli on bottom of greased 9x13 baking dish. Layer chicken over broccoli.
2. In a sauce pan melt the 6 tbs butter, stir in flour, salt and pepper. Gradually stir in mild and continue stirring until the white sauce is smooth and comes to a boil. Remove from heat.
3. combine may and lemon juice with white sauce and pour over chicken and broccoli. Sprinkle with cheese.
4. melt 2 tbsp butter. Stir in bread crumbs and sprinkle over casserole.
5. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.
Note: I have made this with veggie chicken or with only the broccoli with good results.

Yum! I really like this casserole. I usually cheat and use cream of chicken soup though. Yours looks healthier. We have the same blog background!
