Chicken Divan (Or Turkey Divan)

Chicken Divan (Or Turkey Divan) created by karen

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.

    For the sauce: 2 cups chicken gravy made from the drippings after cooking whole chicken breasts. Add 1/2cup mayo and 2 tbs lemon juice. Wisk until smooth. For on top of the broccoli: 1/2 cup combo shredded swiss & parmesan cheese. 1 cup buttered bread crumbs on top Layer in a buttered baking dish (I use my Corning ware 13"(about) square with 2" low edges): (1) Broccoli with florets facing opposite directions - 1 floret facing up then 1 floret facing towards me (2) Top with Swiss & Parm mix (3) Chicken after skinning & deboning in large pieces over cheese mixture (4) Sauce - pour over all (5) Buttered bread crumps sprinkled over the top Cook uncovered in 350degF oven for 30minutes. Sometimes I use Asparagus in place of the broccoli - also good! My niece calls this "Chicken Awesome"

    Made this for the second time tonight with the following deviations from the recipe: 1) used a pound of ground turkey as the meat source, 2) added a chopped stalk of celery and a half of an onion to the ground turkey when I fried it up, and 3) used panko bread crumbs mixed with cheese as the topping. Everyone loved it. I'll definitely make this dish again.

    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!
