    BecR's Note:

    Our family favorite chicken divan recipe! I've been making this yummy recipe for years. We really love the touch of lemon and curry-- it's simply divine!!! Make mine with extra cheese, please. May use chicken or leftover turkey. Serve over hot cooked rice. Recipe is originally from my father, but I've tweaked it to suit my family's tastes. I hope you enjoy!

      This was easy to make. I did not have any cream soups on hand so I made my own homemade version. Everyone seemed to like it. My daughter said it was good but tasted like mayo. I can't say because I am on nutrisystem so I did not have any.

      I made this great recipe because I saw it on Recipe of the day for Father's day. It is similar to mine but I did follow your instructions adding the lemon juice. I did use fresh broccoli that I precooked. Of course my husband loved it; one of our favourite things. thank you for reminding me of good comfort food. Rita

      I can vouch for this recipe being worthy of 5 stars! It's the same recipe I've been using for well over 30 years! Over the years I've become picky about fresh stuff, so I brown my fresh chicken and steam fresh broccoli, and then proceed. I up the curry powder and the cheese, (and mix 1/2 cup of cheese into the soup mixture...or, And then the cheese on top. But trust me, this original form of the recipe is to die for and a time saver when you have leftover chicken. Congratulations on recipe of the day BecR! This recipe is a family will eat it for breakfast!
