Simple and elegant!!!! We absolutely loved this dish and I will make it over and over again. The only thing I did different was use fresh broccoli since that is what I had on hand at the time. This is a dish I will not hesitate to make for guests. Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe. :-)rn

A very simple recipe with great flavor. I didn't cook my broccoli. Instead, I got it ready in the morning before work and just placed it in the refrigerator until I got home from work to put it in the oven. I used reduced fat mayo and chicken soup. Served it with baked sweet potato and dinner rolls.

Had this last night for dinner and delish!! A meal all in one that even tasted better re-heated the next day. I will make this one again, likely great with leftover turkey too.

This is my favorite Chicken Divan recipe. The hint of curry gives it that touch that takes it over the top to elegant. I have frozen it with success too.

I halfed this recipe for a small casserole. I didn"t have any curry so I used cayenne & I didn't use the bread crumb topping because I served the casserole over rice.

This is a good recipe, but for our tastes we would perfer less mayo. I will make this again with less mayo and some chicken stock to think out the cream of chicken soup. Thank you for posting.

Thanks for posting this. I had made a similar recipe for Easter dinner several years ago, but couldn't find the recipe again. I made a lot of adaptations to it tonight to try to get my kids to eat it and to be able to use up the leftover grilled chicken. Since my girls are picky about broccoli, I put in a can of corn and a can of french cut green beans instead. The casserole was already new to them, I didn't want them to refuse to try it at all due to broccoli! I skipped the bread crumbs and topped with tator tots to make them think it was their usual tator tot casserole. I used 1 can cream of chicken, 1 can cream of celery because I was short on chicken soup. I used a b it more, maybe a cup of cheese (co-jack). I baked at 400 in a 9 by 13 pan for about 40 minutes (until the tator tots were done). One daughter, age 3, gobbled it up, and exclamed, "Mama, I like it!" The other, age 4, ate the tator tots, and after much pursuading, at the chicken pieces and some of the corn, but really didn't like the sauce. For the kiddos, I would cut the curry powder down to 1/4 teaspoon (but I loved it!). I'll try them on the broccoli version next time, as the one who did like it also likes broccoli, if I cook it long enough and put cheese sauce on it. Besides, I have a ton of fresh broccoli from my garden to use up, and I like it better with broccoli!

Easy yet complex flavors. I left out the curry powder (was out) and forgot to add the butter to the breadcrumbs, but this was tasty, somewhat healthy and very easy. Will make again when I need a quick, tasty all-in-one dish.

I was looking for something quick and easy that I could cook and then reheat again later after soccer practice. THIS was great. My kids ate it and barely complained and my husband and I both loved it and deemed it a keeper. I layered the bottom of the casserole with left over roasted potatoes that I had from the day before and I added chopped carrots with the broccoli. Great stuff! Thanks for sharin!
