Curry Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

Sue Adame Recipe

By Sue Adame fortheloveoffood

I have been making this casserole for over 25 years with a few tweaks along the way but have no idea where or who I got it from but it is delicious and better yet, simple to make. My 3 longtime girlfriends (we're celebrating 30 yrs of friendship this Aug,2012)fondly refer to it as "THE Chicken Dish". Many laughs around the dining room table as we enjoyed this casserole. I serve it over long grain white rice but you can use pasta or serve without either.
