Classy Chicken

Well here is a dead-simple, weeknight dinner recipe.  I happen to love it and am not ashamed to post it, even though it does contain a CAN of SOUP!  Gasp!  She does cheat sometimes.  Oh well, we’re here to be real, right?  My love for it started when my mom presented it on our doorstep, a few days postpartum with my first babe- Rboy.  Eating anything hot was AMAZING, in my new-mom fog.  It stands out as a warm memory in the chaos that my life was at that point.  It’s from the Best of the Best and More, from the lovely Best of Bridge ladies.  I don’t happen to own the recipe book, my mom does and so mine is a photocopy of the recipe.  But here is the link for the rest of you.  I happen to love it with pasta, but you could do rice.  Enjoy!

Classy Chicken

3 chicken breasts, skinned and boned
1/4 tsp pepper
3 Tbsp oil
1-10 oz. package frozen asparagus or broccoli (I always use fresh broccoli)
1-10oz. can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp. curry powder
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2-1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces and sprinkle with pepper. Saute quickly in oil over medium heat just until opaque (don’t overcook – the chicken will get tough! Drain. Cook asparagus or broccoli until crunchy. Drain and arrange in bottom of buttered casserole. Place chicken on top. Mix together soup, mayonnaise, curry and lemon juice and pour over chicken. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and bake, uncovered, at 350F (180C) for 30-35 minutes. Serves 6

  1. Yum….I made this for a potluck tonight and it was a HIT!! I used broccoli, asparagus and coliflower! (I wasn’t sure how it would be with the coliflower, but it was good, next time I might add mushrooms too) Thanks for the recipe, I’m sure we’ll be using it lots!
