Chicken Divan

READY IN: 1hr 10mins




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Season chicken with salt and pepper and put in a glass baking dish with a small amount of water in the bottom. Bake for 20 minutes; then let cool; cut into strips or bite-sized pieces. Set aside.
  • Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly-salted water to a boil. Cook broccoli for 6 to 8 minutes, or until just tender; drain.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine soup, mayonnaise, chicken broth, lemon juice, curry powder, nutmeg, sherry if desired, and Cheddar cheese.
  • Arrange broccoli in the bottom of a lightly greased 9x13-inch baking dish. Place chicken pieces on top of broccoli. Pour soup mixture evenly over chicken and broccoli (you can lightly toss mixture, if desired).
  • In a small bowl, combine Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs; add melted butter and mix together. Sprinkle bread crumb mixture evenly over casserole.
  • Bake, uncovered, in 350 degree oven for 40 minutes, or until golden and bubbly. Trim with pimento strips, if desired.
