Tasty Tuesday: Chicken & Broccoli Casserole with Cheese

I like the idea of doing "Tasty Tuesday" posts, so I think I may make that a regular thing.  The recipe below is one that my mom used to make when I was growing up, and now I make it as an adult.  Casseroles are such a great comfort food!  This one can actually be tailored to be pretty healthy, by using Campbell's Healthy Request soup and a low-fat shredded cheese.

Chicken & Broccoli Casserole
2 rotisserie chicken breasts, shredded (you can use regular chicken breasts and cook them then shred them, but it's so much easier if you get the pre-cooked chickens from the grocery store, and just pull the breast meat off...it's already cooked and juicy and yummy)
1.5 - 2 cans cream of chicken soup (or cream of mushroom)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 tsp curry powder
1 broccoli crown / head
Shredded cheddar cheese

In a bowl, mix soup, lemon juice, mayonnaise and curry powder.
In baking dish, put broccoli on bottom of dish.  Put chicken on top of broccoli.
Pour sauce mixture over chicken and broccoli.
Bake at 350 degrees for ~30 minutes.
In final 5-10 minutes, sprinkle cheese over top of casserole to melt.
