Fast Chicken Divan Recipe

Publisher Photo
Frozen broccoli and leftover chicken get an easy—but elegant—treatment in a dish from Bertille Cooper of St. Inigoes, Maryland. She dresses them up with a saucy blend of cream soup and mayonnaise, then covers it all with a golden, cheesy crumb topping.

My husband asks for this all the time! It is very simple and tasty which you can't beat on a work night. The only changes I made are using sour cream instead of the condensed soup with a few spices added like garlic powder, onion powder and paprika. Then we use gluten free bread crumbs. It turns out delicious every time! Great recipe that everyone enjoys!

I've made this numerous times, with three guys to feed they always look forward to it. This makes eating broccoli a joy. As a tip serve it with rice on the side.
