Dad's Divine Chicken Divan

Dad's Divine Chicken Divan created by BecR2400

Our family favorite chicken divan recipe! I've been making this yummy recipe for years. We really love the touch of lemon and curry-- it's simply divine!!! Make mine with extra cheese, please. May use chicken or leftover turkey. Serve over hot cooked rice. Recipe is originally from my father, but I've tweaked it to suit my family's tastes. I hope you enjoy!

    Can I make this in the morning and cook it for our evening meal?

    Serve 4-6 not in my family. I use 4-5 lbs of boned skinless chicken breasts and thighs cubed and fried with some chicken bouillon. 2 cans cream of mushroom, 1 can cream of chicken, 1 cup Hellmans, 1 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup heavy cream, 1 Tbs sweet curry, 1 Tbs lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. mix all wet ingredients until smooth. definitely use fresh broccoli. 2 bunches just the flowerettes par boiled 4-5 minutes. At least 1 cup of sharp cheddar grated. Fold thoroughly the broccoli, chicken, and cheddar into wet mixture. Cook on bake 350 for 40 minutes. If you want something on top, crushed Ritz crackers are best - last 10 minutes or so. Try it. You'll find it's the best.

    Love the recipe. I have used a similar one for years but couldn't remember the ratio of soup to mayonnaise. I use Miracle Whip and leave out the lemon juice.Heats fast in a flat baking dish.<br/>Thank you for posting.
