This was fantastic. I added a little instant rice with the broccoli. I was out of cr. of chicken soup so I substituted one can of cream of mushroom soup and one can chicken barley. The lemon juice and curry powder give a wonderful flavor to this dish. I froze part of the casserole for work lunches to heat in the microwave. It tastes good then too and people came in the lunch room and asked what smells so good!
