Comfort Food - Kahchoo!

Nothing beats comfort food.
Sneeze.
Hack.
Sneeze again.
Mumble....sneeze...cughcugh...yack.
I am in need of a warm blankie, some TheraFlu and watch the movie The Holiday for the third time...but will settle for a plate of Chicken Divan at this moment. It is warm and comforting to the soul.
Give it a try sometime.....
Chicken Divan
* 1 large bag of frozen broccoli, rinsed and drained well (or you can use 1 bunch of fresh that is cooked).
* 6-8 chicken breasts that are cooked and chopped into 1-inch cubes
* 2 cans cream of chicken soup
* 1 cup low fat mayonaisse
* 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
* 1/4 tsp curry powder (note: I use 1 tsp because I love curry)
* 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Butter a 13 - 8 - 2 inch baking dish. Arrange broccoli on bottom of dish. Layer the cooked and cubed chicken over the broccoli. Combine all of the other ingredients and pour over the chicken and broccoli.
Cook uncovered for 30 minutes - until bubbly around the edges.
Serve with rice, green salad and a good crusty baguette.

watch 'the notebook' while you are resting, as well. but stop it when she gets out with her luggage. that way, you don't cry and stuff up your nose more :)
take care and drink some tea.

creative breathing said...

Oh my gosh, another Scottie lover! I need look no further! I have a bird as a giveaway the last week in January, and another in February. I am more than happy to send you the pattern for the little bird, it is my own. My next pattern will be a Scottie dog; so you might want to wait and send for both! Laura truly is a treasure to my life!

Elyse said...

poor becky,

i hope you are feeling much better. nothing better than warm, gloppy, salty comfort food!

question about the holiday, since you have now seen it 3 times ... i saw it in the theater when it first came out and left feeling all sad for jude law's character. how would it work out for him and cameron's character? then he'll be all sad again. i'm better off watching you've got mail for the zillionth time.

anyway -- your shutters were painted again today. this time a few coats of a taupe-y white. i'll email pics soon!

feel better, sweetie
xo

Elyse said...

Hi Becky, Your picture of the bird at Monterey really brought back a funny memory.
Last time we took the grandkids with us, we had dinner at Bubba Gumps. They seated us at a table over looking the water. We had no sooner sat down when that guys brother landed on a post right outside our window. The kids were just delighted...until.. our food arrived. That bird sat looking in at us the entire time we were eating with saliva just dripping from his beak! Even the kids were finally grossed out. We have laughed at it several times since and your picture brought back a real tickler for me!
Had so many delightful compliments on your pink wool hearts! They were a hit! Happy New Year! Deborah

Cherry's Jubilee said...

HOpe you feel better really soon Becky....I take that air stuff..whatchamacallit with big doses of vitamens.. right when I am feeling ill. I emailed you! cherry

Janet said...

Hope you are much better by now. I used to make that chicken recipe back in the 70s, yep, I *am* that old. I haven't thought about it in years and I know Bob wouldn't eat it. Hmmm...maybe I will just make it to share with some of my gal pals.
