Chicken and Broccoli Bake

This is my children's favorite dinner!  I got the recipe from an old Lion House cook book.  Where it calls for cooked chicken, I sometimes substitute (cover your ears, Amanda) canned chicken from Costco.   It still tastes really yummy.  I also sprinkle fried onions on top before baking to give it some extra pizazz.  The recipe doesn't call for this, but we like to serve it over rice.

2-4 chicken breast halves, cooked and diced
2-3 10-oz. packages frozen broccoli, cooked or 2 lbs. fresh broccoli trimmed and cooked
1 can (10 1/2 oz.) cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon lemon juice
fried onions (opt. but we love it)
cooked rice (you don't need this, but we like it)

In a 9x9x2-inch dish, arrange broccoli with flowerettes pointed out toward edge of dish.  Lay chicken meat over broccoli.  Make a sauce by combining soup, milk, and mayonnaise and stir until smooth.  Add cheese and lemon juice.  Pour sauce over chicken and broccoli to cover chicken pieces completely.   Sprinkle with fried onions, if desired.  Cover pan with aluminun foil and bake at 350 degrees F. for about 30 minutes.  Serve over rice, if desired.  Makes 6 adult servings.
