Chicken Divan

Thom Hackett

Original Recipe: http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/chicken-divan

Servings: 8

 

 

I am not a lover of cooked broccoli but I do like a good Chicken Divan if the cooked chicken is shredded rather than cubed and there is not an abundance of broccoli in the dish.  The broccoli in the picture was not chopped but placed in as florets.  I want mine to be chopped.

 

Ingredients


  • 1/2 cup butter, divided
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups half-and-half cream
  • 1/2 cup cooking sherry or water
  • 2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen cut or chopped broccoli, thawed
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 3 to 4 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs

    1-1/2 cups half-and-half cream

    Cooking Method


    1. In a small saucepan, melt 1/4 cup butter. Add flour, stirring until blended. Stir in the cream and cooking sherry or water; cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 more minutes. Blend in soup until smooth; remove from the heat and set aside.
    2. Place broccoli in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Cover with "cooked" rice and then half of the sauce. Top with the shredded cooked chicken. Pour remaining sauce over the chicken.
    3. Melt the remaining butter and toss with bread crumbs. Sprinkle over the casserole.

    4. Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese over bread crumbs.

    5. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 35-45 minutes or until heated through.
