  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 6 strips bacon cooked drained, chopped
  • 1 zucchini thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese shredded
  • 0.5 oz dry Ranch seasoning 1/2 packet
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese shredded

Instructions
 

  • Heat oven to 375 F.
  • Add 4 chicken breasts to casserole dish.
  • Sprinkle the chicken with dry Ranch seasoning mix.
  • Top with sliced zucchini and chopped cooked bacon.

  • Remove from the oven.
  • Allow the chicken rest in the casserole dish. It will continue cooking as it rests for 5-10 minutes.

Notes

Use regular chicken breasts or thinly sliced chicken breasts. If your chicken breasts are large, slice each one in half horizontally. By doing this, you can make 2 thinly sliced chicken breasts out of each large chicken breast.
The chicken should be cooked through in about 20 minutes. The actual time depends on your oven. All ovens are different. It also depends on the thickness of your chicken breasts. Thin chicken breasts will cook faster.
The chicken is cooked through when it's no longer pink in the center.
When broiling, check often. Make sure the cheese doesn't burn too much on top of the chicken.

How to make Broccoli Chicken Divan

If you are starting out with precooked chicken, skip that step!

Easy Chicken Divan Casserole

  • Begin by dicing up the chicken into small, bite-sized pieces,
  • Cut your fresh broccoli into florets. Florets are just the green top part of the broccoli, cut into small pieces, with
  • the majority of the stalk removed.
  • In a small bowl, combine the breadcrumbs and melted butter.
  • In a medium bowl combine the soup and milk.
  • In a large skillet, heat some olive oil and cook the chicken until golden brown and cooked through.
  • Add the chicken and broccoli to the baking dish.
  • Pour over the soup/milk mixture.
  • Top with cheddar cheese.
  • Add the bread crumb mixture, and bake for 20 minutes at 450 degrees F.
  • Season with salt and black pepper, if needed.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes.

If you don’t eat the whole casserole (which we usually do around here, it’s SO good), it reheats perfectly. Simply place the Chicken Divan in the microwave, or reheat it in the oven or on the stovetop. Before reheating, I usually add a splash of milk to keep it nice and creamy.

  • 3 Tbs butter melted
  • ¼ cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Dice the chicken. Combine the soup and milk in a medium bowl, and the breadcrumbs and butter in a small bowl.
  • COOK THE CHICKEN
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and cook until until golden brown and cooked through.
  • Add the chicken and broccoli to an 8×8 baking dish, and pour the soup/milk mixture over the top.
  • Sprinkle with the cheddar cheese and pour over the breadcrumbs/butter mixture.
  • Bake at 450 degrees F for 20 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.

Notes

SUBSTITUTIONS:
You can use any kind of condensed soup – I recommend Cream of Mushroom, Cream of Celery or just plain Cheddar Soup. You can make your own Cream of Chicken Soup too!
SHORTCUTS:
Want to take a shortcut or 2? Use precooked rotisserie chicken or buy fully cooked chicken from the grocery store. Buy broccoli that is already cut into florets, or use frozen broccoli.
