Contest-Winning Broccoli Chicken Casserole
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min.
Hubby loves this one.
I have been making this for a couple of months and tried as originally written and really liked. Over time, I have made a couple of changes to suit my tastes...Used cream of chicken soup, added additional broccoli and sautéed celery and onion to add more veg’s to the dressing. When I don’t have fresh chicken I sub (12.5 oz) canned chicken breast. Excellent as written...easy to modify to taste.
I am not normally a fan of recipes that use Campbell's soup, but this one is a "keeper". I used 1 1/2 times the chicken (about 1 pound of cubed cooked chicken) to increase the protein to carbohydrate ratio. I think I might try the Campbell's Cheddar Cheese soup, or the Cream of Chicken as another reviewer recommended next time as I don't care for the broccoli flavor of Broccoli Cheese soup.
We really liked this. I did make a couple changes as I didn't have the soup so used Cream of Chicken soup and added some shredded Monteray jack cheese and some sour cream (1/4 cup) and 1/4 tsp of curry. Also added 1/4 cup sour cream to the stuffing. Topped with sharp cheddar. Easy and delicious. Very nice texture. Will definitely make again.
I have been making this for years but I always used cream of chicken soup but added 1/4teaspoon of curry, oil and garlic powders plus 1/4 cup of sour cream and parmesan cheese to the sauce. Easy and delicious casserole.
I have been making this casserole for years! Our family loves it. I use cream of chicken soup and add celery and onion sautéed in butter to the stuffing mix. A generous squeeze of lemon juice added to the chicken, broccoli soup mix makes all the difference in the taste! Great recipe!
Sorry, we still prefer the "old" Chicken Divan recipe.My sister made the original,took it to a church potluck,and 7 ladies were standing by the empty dish to find out who made it, and to get the recipe. AND someone had called the local newspaper's Food Editor, it was published in the Star,and then made into the newspaper's "community cookbook." Sometimes the newer ones aren't better than the original, which didn't use any packaged ingredients and also used a different soup and added a pinch of curry. Anyone who tasted the original recipe would definitely not give this one any more stars than one.
I tried this recipe, a contest winner. Nobody liked it, not even the cook.
This casserole turned out great. I chose lower sodium stove top and that worked well. Husband really enjoyed it so this is a keeper!
It's a keeper. My whole family loved it.
