Happy summer everyone! I think most kids are out of school by now, if not, they should be in the next week.  I love summer time! I think we live on fruits and veggies in the summer-they are just so fresh and my favorites are in season. :)

This week the boys and I will be making Chicken Divan. I remember it was one of the first meals I made after I got married. I still enjoy it and my family does too. Have you ever made it? Do you have a different recipe than mine? Here is how we make it.

Ingredients for Chicken Divan:

4 organic-hormone free chicken breast- chopped

4 cups organic broccoli- chopped into small pieces

1 cup mayonnaise-Spectrum organic

1 cup sour cream- organic valley (nondairy version use Sour Supreme Tofutti sour cream- delish!)

1 teaspoon organic curry powder

1 cup grated organic sharp cheddar cheese (nondairy version use Veggie Slices Shreds, Diaya Cheddar cheese and others)

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp pepper

You can chop the broccoli however you want. My one son prefers using the PC chopper and my other wants to manually chop using a knife.

Once you have chopped the broccoli into small pieces as well as the chicken, layer them in a 9×13 baking dish. 

In a medium bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, curry powder, salt and pepper. Whisk together to make a sauce.

Pour the sauce over the broccoli and chicken. Mix the broccoli, chicken and sauce well with a spatula. Sprinkle cheese on top.

Bake in the oven 350 degrees for 30 min. If your cheese starts to burn, simply cover the dish and continue cooking.

Now, it’s your turn! Share with us- Carrie at Young Living Oil Lady and Kelli at  AdventurzinChildrearing your family friendly recipe. What have you been making this week? How are you inspiring your kids to get in the kitchen? Use this time to bond with your children. Cooking is so much fun and many subjects can be discussed right in the kitchen while you are cooking!

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.(1 Corinth. 10:13)
