I was thinking about when I was young and how my mom would have that casserole in the oven when I got home from school and the house always smelled so good and so inviting. Most times when I brought friends home, they would end up staying for dinner! (I guess they couldn't resist the yummy smells either! LOL)
So, I thought I would start making the one casserole that I absolutely love and hey, I'm not to proud to say that it is SO easy as well! The quicker and easier the better for us busy mom's right?
What makes this even better is that I was able to make this delicious Chicken Divan casserole in my new Le Creuset Bake Ware. I was so excited!
If you remember my post last week, I was saying that I had been contacted by Ashley at CSN Stores to do a review of any product I wanted. How great is that? And when I saw this Bake Ware, I new I just had to have it!
I just love this lime green color too! (I've been wanting to get a few pieces that brighten up my kitchen and I think this one is perfect!)
This Le Creuset 9" square baking dish is perfect for casseroles or really anything you want to make and serve right from the oven. A few ideas are chicken Parmesan, baked spaghetti, Lasagna, or Chicken Divan. (Recipe to follow!)
This poterie stoneware can be used in the oven, microwave or broiler and will not pick up any odors or flavors. It has a beautiful appearance, as you can see from my pic above, and it is so durable it resists chipping and stains.
And the greatest part is that when I was finished with dinner, clean up was a snap. I just rinsed off the dish and put it in the dishwasher. Yes ladies, dishwasher safe! Woo-Hoo!!
As an added bonus I got the 5" baking dish too. It is small but I can make Mexican dip, spinach artichoke dip, or even a yummy individual dessert and serve it in this beautiful bake ware.
So to show you how impressed I was with it, here is a picture of my delicious Chicken Divan casserole.
I can honestly say my family was so impressed with not only the casserole but the presentation as well. It looked really lovely!
So please check out CSN Stores online. They not only offer bakeware or kitchen items but all kinds of other great products as well like shoes, mailboxes, childrens toys and baby items too!
This bakeware is a product I will definitely recommend and I am thinking of buying a stock pot in the same pretty lime green color for winter soups and stews. Just thinking about it makes me hungry! LOL
Now for the Chicken Divan recipe. Its fast, its easy, its delicious. Here it is.....
1 pkg frozen broccoli (16 oz)
4 small chicken breasts or small rotisserie chicken
1 TBSP lemon juice
1/2 TSP curry powder
1 can cream of chicken soup, fat free
1 cup light mayonnaise
2 cups shredded cheddar
bread crumbs for topping
I thaw out broccoli in microwave and add it to casserole dish. Then take your cooked chopped chicken and add that over broccoli. Mix together in bowl, can of soup, mayonnaise, 1 cup of cheese, curry, lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste.
Pour that mix on top and sprinkle with remaining cup of cheese and breadcrumbs. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes and it will come out bubbling and delicious. You can serve with rice or pasta or a vegetable, whatever you like! ENJOY!
