This delicious twist on chicken divan came from an old boss, who gave the recipe to me when I got married. It’s quick, satisfying comfort food. —Jennifer Schlachter, Big Rock, Illinois

"Easy!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 20, 2015

"This recipe received five stars for the ease of preparation compared to taste. My husband and I both thought this was a yummy weeknight meal. IT's hard to accurately rate a recipe when you make modifications, but that is what I did based on other reviewers' suggestions. I made the stuffing with chicken broth and saut?ed onions in butter to add to the mix. I also added roasted garlic powder, celery seed and sage to the stuffing. I used Cream of Broccoli as this was all I had in the house and doubled the broccoli. This made about 4 moderate sized servings. Very quick and easy to make. We will be making this again on a busy weeknight."

"Easy make ahead dish"

MY REVIEW

"I made this on a whim because I was pressed for time and had all the ingredients. I added about 1-1/2 cups of leftover mashed potatoes in the casserole dish first as suggested by another reviewer and then the rest of the ingredients on top. I didn't use any cheese, though. My SO actually liked it, even with the broccoli, and actually ate leftovers the next day (unheard of!) I will definitely make again and again. Thank you for submitting."
