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

"This was really good and easy!! Will definitely make again."

MY REVIEW

"I have made a very similar casserole for YEARS with the exception of using "raw" bone-in chicken thighs and fresh portions of a broccoli crown & add quartered (or smaller) potatoes-- actually just made to take to some folks at Church who need a bit of help. I like adding small can of sliced mushrooms on top of the soup and use chicken broth to make the stuffing. Grate up Swiss cheese for on top of mushrooms and over stuffing -- probably 2-3 cups total (we like cheese). Obviously, cook longer like 45 (or more) minutes at 350 depending on stove! Also, made without stuffing and served over rice. AND naturally season to your own taste!"
