This is my great-aunt’s recipe and much celebrated in my FOO. She was full-blooded Polish and skinny as a rail, if that can possibly excuse this fat-laden dish (I mean please – mayonnaise, condensed cream soup, and butter!?!).
3 full chicken breasts
2 head broccoli*
2 cans cream of mushroom soup**
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup bread crumbs
1 tablespoon butter
2 oz. cheese, grated
Preheat oven to 350. Cook chicken 40 minutes. Cook broccoli ten minutes. Arrange broccoli lining casserole dish. Put chicken in center. Combine soup, mayonnaise, and lemon juice to pour over. Sprinkle crumbs, dab butter, and sprinkle cheese. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes.
* Original recipe called for 2 packages broccoli, whatever that means.
** Original recipe called for cream of chicken soup but I can’t bear to use it.
