Chicken Divan Casserole
A classic Chicken Divan Casserole with broccoli, chicken, cheese and a crunchy topping. This classic, creamy dish has been loved for decades for both its ease of preparation and rich flavor.
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 4 cups uncooked broccoli
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 can Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
- 3 Tbs butter melted
- ¼ cup dry bread crumbs
- 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
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.
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!
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.
