The Biannual Tradition, part ii

Oh, it's all just part of my blogging scheme. I posted the Biannual Tradition about Chicken and Broccoli Casserole but I didn't give you the recipe. Now, you have to comment and ask for the recipe if it really sounds "that good." And then, I get comments and I get to do another post. I really did it intentionally...not giving you the recipe, that is! But, Jessica commented and asked for the recipe so here it is:

Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

3 packages frozen broccoli OR one bunch fresh
6 whole chicken breasts, cooked
3 cans condensed cream of chicken soup (also known as Cream of Chemical Soup :)
1 1/2 cups sour cream
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/3 cup white wine
3/4 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 package crushed Ritz crackers
2 tablespoons melted butter

Arrange cooked broccoli in a greased 9x13" pan. Cut chicken in large bite-sized pieces and place over broccoli. In a medium bowl, mix together soup, sour cream, lemon juice and white wine and pour over broccoli and chicken. Sprinkle with the cheese, then the crumbs and drizzle the melted butter over top. Bake covered at 350 degrees about 1 hour until bubbly and very hot. Excellent for a crowd. Serves 10 or more.

The Blair house had a great time teasing Daddy about the food he was "avoiding" while he was gone because at Presbytery they served....Chicken and Spinach Casserole. Now, I'm sorry, maybe it's good, but that just sounds like you really wish you had some broccoli to make the right kind of casserole and you realized you didn't so you threw spinach in there to make it nutritious...but not delicious. We did get to laugh a lot this weekend over that, though ;)

I hope you're all having a great Monday!

"This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it."
~Psalm 118:24

With much rejoicing because He is King!
