Chicken Broccoli Divan

April 19, 2012

This recipe is a classic!  If you are over 30 years of age, I am sure that you have had this before.  So simple and easy – and a great way to use up leftover chicken or turkey. The recipe is still on the back of the Campbell’s soup can.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

1 pound fresh broccoli or 1 (10 oz.)  frozen broccoli

1 1/2 cups (8 oz.) cooked chicken or turkey, bite-sized pieces – leftover chicken or turkey can be used or a routisserie chicken

If using frozen broccoli, defrost in the microwave.  Drain any liquid and blot with a paper towel to soak up any excess water.

Arrange broccoli and chicken in a 2 quart casserole dish.

1 can broccoli cheese soup

1/3 cup milk

1 – 2 tsp. lemon juice (not shown in the picture or listed on the soup can but it tastes so much better with it.)

Mix soup, milk and lemon juice –  pour over all.

1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

Sprinkle with cheese.

1/8 cup dry bread crumbs (optional)

1/2 T. butter, melted (optional)

Mix bread crumbs with margarine and sprinkle on top.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until hot.

Makes 4 servings.
