Chicken Divan Casserole

"This is a recipe I found in one of those small cookbooks you can get at the checkout stand at the grocery store. I've served it for company, taken it to potlucks, and just make it for ourselves when we are looking for something special. It's always a hit. I think the Dijon mustard is the key ingredient to make it different and special."

"I love to collect cookbooks. I especially like to find old cookbooks at thrift stores and garage sales. Some of the best recipes I've tried are from the little cookbooks you can buy by the checkstand at the grocery store. As most cooks have, I've been collecting recipes from newspapers, magazines, friends, etc. for the past 25+ years. I'm currently in the process of organizing them into binders (not a small task). It's great seeing again what I've collected and finding recipes I haven't tried in years, discovering how my tastes have changed, or finding those that I wanted to try but haven't because they've been buried in the file cabinet for so long. I'll have to live to be 150 to try all the recipes I've saved but haven't yet tried."

    Good recipe! I upped the flour to 4 tbsp and it turned out perfectly. When I make this again, I might double the breadcrumbs/butter.

    Some versions of chicken divan include a small amount of lemon juice and some curry powder. These two ingredients really add flavor and interest to the dish.

    Very good! Been using this same recipe for years now; it's ALWAYS a hit! I always add more spicy brown mustard and cheese than it calls for. NOMNOMNOM!

    This recipe turned out just ok for me. Everything turned out ok, but it really wasn't all that appealing to me. Unfortunately, for my family, this won't be a repeat. Thanks anyways for sharing.

    This casserole was pretty tasty. I found it to be a little heavy on the sauce though, it came out slightly soupy. :-/ It tasted really good - I think next time I'll just cut the sauce in half when I make it and add more bread crumbs/cheese. Thanks for sharing!
