Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Thaw the frozen broccoli by leaving in the refrigerator overnight, or defrost in the microwave. Drain the broccoli and put into a 11 x 7 casserole dish that has been prepared with a non stick cooking spray. Top with shredded chicken.

In a medium bowl, combine the soup, mayonnaise, sour cream, cheddar cheese, lemon juice, curry powder, salt and pepper to taste, and wine. Whisk together to make a sauce. Pour the sauce over the broccoli and chicken. Mix well with a spatula.

Pat down evenly and smooth with a spatula. In a small mixing bowl, stir together the Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs and butter and sprinkle over the top.

Bake for about 30-45 minutes.

Cook’s Note: Try topping with Cheddar or Gruyere cheese.
