Chicken Divan

Chicken Divan is a great comfort meal! I used brown and white rice mixed this time but I usually use just brown.
Chicken Divan

This is one of our family's favorites! Mom has always made it and now I make it for us.

Prepare rice first. I use 2 cups rice in 4 cups water. (Boil water, add rice. Cover, turn onto low for 20 minutes for white, 50 minutes for brown rice. Add 1/2 cup more water for brown.)

Prepare chicken: Bake or boil 2 chicken breasts till cooked. You could also use leftover roasted chicken. Cut into bite sized pieces.

Prepare Broccoli: Steam 2 heads broccoli. (I use my PC Micro cooker and add a 1/2 " water in the bottom. Cook until tender.)

Prepare sauce: Combine 2 cans cream of chicken soup (or try homemade- it's better! This recipe is SO good! It's the one I always use.), 3/4 cup mayonnaise, 1 tsp lemon juice and 3/4 tsp curry powder.


(1) Rice
(2) Broccoli
(3) chicken
(4) sauce
(5) 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
(6) Optional: top with Ritz crackers or breadcrumbs mixed with a bit of melted butter

Bake for 30 minutes at 350' or until heated through.
Double the recipe and take it to someone who's sick, or who's had a baby!

Mmmm....that sounds really good right now! My mom made Chicken Divan when I was little.

Happy Spring, Kristen! I'm happy to hear that you're catching up on your sleep!
