"There are a few similar recipes on Zaar to this one, but none exactly the same. This is the one that my mom served when I was a child. The only change I have made is to use broccoli florets instead of frozen spears, which are difficult to cut when serving this up. I've also made this without the broccoli in a smaller dish. My mom always made this recipe with the chicken created when making chicken stock. Feel free to substitute cooked leftover turkey in place of the chicken."

"We LOVED this! I had to force myself to stop eating it. In fact I had to choose between this and my freshly baked bread (which I also love) because I couldn't continue to eat both (I'm a glutton). What I love most about this is that even though it has a can of cream soup in it, after it was cooked I couldn't tell that it was there, couldn't see it or taste it. I did make one change, I added about 2 cups of rice as the bottom layer and only used 2 cups of chicken. Oh, and I am sure I used more than a cup of cheese. I also dotted the top of the bread crumbs with butter. Thanks Karen67! **UPDATE**2/16/07- I made this again last night for my bunco group and they loved it too. I accidentally used cream of mushroom instead of chicken and didn't notice a difference, it was still so yummy! Thanks again!"
"This was perfect for my leftover turkey breast. I followed the recipe only subbing cream of mushroom b/c thats what I had. I think the curry powder adds something special to this. Thanks for sharing!"
"Everyone liked this. I only had 16 oz. broccoli and 3 C chicken. I used homemade whole wheat bread for the crumbs. Instead of layering the chicken and the sauce, I mixed it all together. Gets more uniformly incorporated that way. The cat licked the plate clean! I used 1/4 tsp curry and it wasn't enough for me, but it was enough for the rest of the family. They liked it."
"Nice recipe for a quick meal. Made half a recipe and added a few mushroom with the broccoli."
"This was excellent! I made the recipe with leftover turkey from Christmas. The only change I made was to substitute the can of cream of chicken soup with turkey broth and I doubled the mayonnaise because I am allergic to MSG. Also my husband loves cheese so I used a cup of cheese instead. Thank you for posting!"
"Very good divan recipe. I followed everything except used frozen broc and cauli mix. Also topped with seasoned croutons instead of breadcrumbs. Added a nice texture. Thanks for sharing this!"
"My whole family liked this recipe, even my picky daughter. Next time I will decrease the amount of broccoli and increase the amount of sauce. There was just too much broccoli for us."
"I have made this recipe twice and it was fabulous both times. I've used fresh cauliflower instead of broccoli because of personal preference. The first time I made it I followed the recipe with great results. Second time I substituted the cream of mushroom soup for Evelyn's Recipe#62371 and it was fantastic also. Thank you Karen67 for another great recipe. It is saved in my "chicken"cookbook for ever."
