Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Lightly grease a baking dish.
Place broccoli into a microwave-safe dish with a lid; pour in a small amount of water, cover and cook on high in microwave until broccoli is steaming and bright green, 2 to 3 minutes. Carefully remove lid and spread broccoli on the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Spread cooked chicken in a layer over the broccoli.
Whisk cream of chicken soup, mayonnaise, lemon juice, curry powder, salt and black pepper in a bowl and pour sauce over the chicken and broccoli. Spread the grated cheese over the sauce and sprinkle cornflakes and almonds on top.
Bake uncovered in the preheated oven until casserole is bubbling and cheese has melted, about 30 minutes.
