With all due respect, if you don't add broccoli, it's not chicken divan. I've made something like this for many years. I've got this on my menu for the next time I cook a roast chicken. This is the recipe I will use.
Everyone loved this and a definite keeper! Made as is but did put some almonds on top,, took some to neighbors and they loved it too. Will be serving this to my bridge group when we start meeting again. Great find!
Delicious!! I used broccoli cheese and creamy cauliflower soups. I also didn’t have sherry, so I omitted it. I was afraid it would be too much, but it was absolutely my favorite version of chicken divan. I miss a crunch, so next time I’ll add some slivered almonds.
Everyone in my family loves this recipe. From adults to small children. I wouldn’t change a thing about it.
Folks...this is a delicious recipe. Chicken Divan is supposed to have broccoli in it, so providing a 1-star rating because you don't think it should include it, is pure poppy-cock! LOL I prefer using fresh broccoli, only because I think frozen adds more water content in the end result, but either is fine. This is a keeper, thank you!
The broccoli is way too strong for this delicate sauce. I will not make it again.
I made this per recipe the first time. I thought it could be better so the second time I changed it up a bit. Substituted 1 can cream of celery soup for the cream of chicken and crushed Stove Top stuffing for the soft bread crumbs. YUM!!
I cut this in half for just my husband and I and put it all in an 8x8 pan. I really think you could taste and smell the cooking sherry so I would definitely suggest using that over the water. The meal had a different flavor than I expected and we were pleasantly surprised. I do feel it could have done better with a bit more rice. I hate the texture of frozen broccoli so I used fresh that I had steamed. A good meal, but I'm not sure how the leftovers will hold up. 4-star for now, I'll update to 5 if the leftovers are still good.
This dish was rated very high by my family of 11, which is a hard feat to accomplish in this household. I did make a few changes tho, instead of half n’ half i made my own, and I used Chicken broth instead of Sherry, added more broccoli, doubled the rice and slightly more chicken, and for the bread crumbs I substituted crushed cornbread stuffing cubes…very tasty
I really liked it but I did make a few changes. I used fresh broccoli (I cooked it for 2 min in microwave), I used chicken broth in place of sherry or water, and I topped it with a can of french fried onion rings instead of the breadcrumbs. I really loved the onion rings on top. I also used double the rice.
