Chicken Broccoli Casserole

Broccoli (as much as you want)
2 -4 Chicken Breast or Tenders
1 cup Mayo/Miracle Whip
2 cans Cream of Chicken Soup
2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
Bread Crumbs
Grated Cheddar Cheese

Begin by cutting the broccoli up into bite size chunks.
Boil the broccoli. (It doesn't need to be completely cooked, because you'll finish later)
Drain the broccoli and set aside.
Boil the chicken breasts until thoroughly cooked.
Remove the chicken and cut into bite size chunks.

In a bowl.
Mix the cans of soup with the mayo/miracle whip. (You can use one or the other. I just use a little of both)
Then add the lemon juice.
I smell or taste it to make sure it's what I want.

Place a very small amount of the mixture on the bottom of the pan.
Place the broccoli at the bottom of a glass baking dish.
Place the chicken on top of the broccoli.
Pour the rest of the sauce/mixture over the broccoli and chicken.
Top with bread crumbs.
Cover with tin foil.

Since the chicken and broccoli are already cooked, you are just heating up the sauce and cooking it together.
Bake @ 350 for 30-45 minutes. (or until the center is warm/hot).
Remove the tin foil and add grated cheese (as much as you'd like).
Broil the casserole until cheese is crispy.

***********Our family is on a health challenge. So when I made this today I did half of the sauce. (1/2 cup mayo/miracle whip and 1 can cream of chicken soup) I also doubled the broccoli and only put half of the shredded cheese on top.
