Chicken Divine!

This recipe reminds me of Chicken Divan so I like to call it "Chicken Divine!"  It is a great meal to double for pot lucks.  You can also make one for your family and take one to someone in need of a good meal.  Because it's a one-dish-meal, all you need is some store-bought rolls and a bag of Chips-Ahoy cookies for dessert.  Delicious!

Chicken and Broccoli Bake
4 chicken skinless, boneless breast halves
3 (10-ounce) frozen broccoli, cooked 
(I like to steam the frozen broccoli--be sure not to cook too much)
1/2 c. milk
1/4 c. mayonnaise
1 c. Swiss cheese, grated (or Italian blend)
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 cup buttered cracker crumbs 
(About 6-7 Ritz crackers crushed in a Ziploc baggie)
Either bring chicken to a boil with a sprinkling of Poultry Special Mix, then lower temperature to simmer for 30 minutes to 1 hour,
OR bake chicken in 350 degree oven, sprinkled lightly with Poultry Special Mix, for an hour.
In a casserole or 9 x 9 x 2-inch pan, layer broccoli and chicken.
In a saucepan make a sauce by combining soup, milk, mayonnaise, and lemon juice.  Heat and stir just until boiling and smooth.  (This can be done in a bowl in the microwave.  I press the beverage button and stir well; then press the beverage button again and stir again.).
Remove from heat and stir in cheese.
Pour sauce over chicken, cover with crumbs.
Bake covered for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
Uncover and bake an additional 15 minutes.
