Today I am going to share with you one of my very favorite recipes!
While I wish I could take credit for this creation, it is really a recipe that was shared with me by my friend Lindsey.
Right after I had Lucas, she brought me this dish, even though she herself was days away from going into labor with her FOURTH child.
I then proceeded to eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner until it was gone and promptly asked for the recipe!

I don’t know whether it is the curry, the creamy sauce, or the heaps of cheddar cheese, but this heart warming and filling meal was an immediate win with my family. It is easy to whip up and ready within an hour. You could easily freeze this meal and save it to enjoy for later. Enough chit chat. Let’s get down to it.
- 1 ½ cups of Mayo
- 2 Cans of Cream of Celery
- 2 Heaping Teaspoons of Curry
- Lemon Juice to taste
- 1-2 Cloves Garlic
- Broccoli- steamed
- Bread Crumbs
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and pull out your favorite 13”x9” casserole dish.
I usually lay my chicken down first. When Lindsey made me this dish she left the chicken breasts whole, which is delicious, but for little one year old hands and a lazy mama, I like to cut my chicken into bite size pieces.
Lindsey also used fresh steamed broccoli, I used a 14oz steam in the bag…again because I’m lazy.
Once my chicken and broccoli are in the pan, I add the mayo, cream of celery, (I used cream of chicken because that is what I had on hand) a squirt of lemon juice, and garlic. Mix it all up. Finally, add a layer of yummy cheddar cheese and bread crumbs. Bake for 1 hour.
Easy peasy, and versatile. You can make this dish fancy, like Lindsey, or be like me and use what you’ve got. Would you give it a try? Tell me what you think!
