Chicken Divan


Chicken Divan

This is a family recipe I was raised with and is possibly my all time favorite way of consuming broccoli. It also works fantastically as a way of using leftover chicken or turkey.


2-3 bunches of broccoli
3-4 chicken breast halves
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 cup mayo
2 Tbs lemon juice
1 Tb Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
1 cup grated sharp cheddar


Prepare broccoli via whichever method you prefer. Personally I just microwave it wrapped in paper towels for around 6-8 minutes. Cut it up and make a layer of broccoli in a 9×13 inch glass dish.

Prepare your chicken via whichever method your prefer. Personally I just cook it on medium in a steel pan, covered, with some water or white wine if I have it. When it’s done, pull it apart into chunks and create a layer of chicken on top of the layer of broccoli.

Combine soup, mayo, lime juice, Worcestershire sauce, in a bowl until well mixed. Spread over the chicken and broccoli. Cover this third layer with the cheese, then bread crumbs, then paprika.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes covered. Uncover and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
