Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

While we have sunny, mild weather today in the DFW area, I realize that many of you have really cold temps and snow.  We need to pull out some of our comforting casserole recipes to help us get through January and February, right?!   This morning,  I was looking through my file of trusted recipes for a really good chicken dish to have in the winter, and I found one that I haven't made for quite a while.  I hope you like it;  it's a good way to use up leftover chicken, and kids will eat it because it has cheese included.  Just add some good rolls or bread to this casserole and you have a quick meal!  You have better things to sledding!

Easy Chicken Divan

One 10 oz. pkg frozen chopped broccoli
1 C chopped cooked chicken
One 8 oz. jar Cheez Whiz
One 3 oz. can chow mein noodles

Microwave broccoli according to directions;  drain.  Add chicken;  mix lightly.  Microwave Cheese Whiz according to the label;  add to chicken mixture and mix lightly.  Microwave on Medium for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until hot.  Spoon over noodles.
-substitute two 5 1/2 oz. cans of drained chunk chicken for cooked chicken
-or one 6 1/2 oz. can of tuna in water;  drained
