Chicken Divan

I first tasted this wonderful dish when I was recovering from a hospital stay.  It was sent from a special friend, who is now my son's MIL.  It's a delicious casserole any time, but fabulous for sending comfort food to a family.  Here's the recipe.

1 box frozen chopped broccoli
2 cups cooked chicken, cut up
2 cans cream of chicken soup                                      
1 cup mayonnaise
1 t. lemon juice (I use 1/2 lemon)
1/2 t. curry powder
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup bread crumbs (I love Panko)
1 T. melted butter
Partially cook the broccoli & then drain.  Add this to the bottom of a 9 x 13" pan.  Add the chopped, cooked chicken.

Mix the cream of chicken soups, the mayonnaise, lemon juice & curry powder in a medium bowl.   Put this mixture on top of the chicken.  Sprinkle on the cheese & then sprinkle on the breadcrumbs that have been mixed with the melted butter.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

  1. Someone brought this for our family when my 3rd child was born...and I asked for the recipe immediately! Time to get it back into the dinner easy and delicious!

  2. A perfect comfort food it is - can't agree more on that!I like the part about combining the breadcrumbs and butter together to form a nice covering over the dish - must be creamy and moist on the inside and crunchy on the outside.Loved the dish very much and hope you have a great weekend ahead dear:)

  3. This dish sounds wonderful! Add a salad and you have a meal!
