Chicken Divan

By Sinea Pies

Chicken Divan is a delicious casserole consisting of a layer of broccoli, followed by boneless chicken breast and a thick creamy sauce topped with bread crumbs and grated parmessan cheese. 

Chicken Divan is the most marvelous dish - great for special occasions or Sunday dinner. It's one of those "all-in-one" meals covering the basic food groups: protein, veggie, even a little dairy. Served with rice pilaf on the side, it'll become a family favorite. 

There is a little bit of preparation time involved, that's why I prefer to serve it as a meal on the weekend.  It reheats well so, make enough for leftovers the next night!  

  • Fresh broccoli, cut in spears
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts 
  • Cream of chicken soup 2 cans
  • Real mayonnaise 1 cup
  • Grated Parmesan cheese 1/2 cup
  • Unseasoned bread crumbs 3/4 cup
  • Lemon juice 1 T
  • Curry powder 1 tsp
Slightly cook broccoli in boiling water, till starting to get tender-- but not quite done-- drain and cool.

Lay the broccoli in a baking dish, top with chicken breasts (2-4 whole, divided)

Combine 2 cans cream of chicken soup, 1 cup mayonnaise (Hellman’s or any “real” mayonnaise—not salad dressing) 1 T lemon juice, 1 tsp curry powder. Spread over the chicken (thickly). 

Sprinkle with a combination of bread crumbs (3/4 cup) and Parmesan cheese (1/2 cup).

Bake in a preheated 300° oven, uncovered, for 60 minutes until done. I double this recipe, which increases the cooking time by quite a bit. Just cut into a piece to check for doneness. Serve with Neareast Original Rice Pilaf on the side.
