The Best Chicken Divan Ever!

"Yes there are a lot of different chicken divan recipe's out there but I will swear on this one as being the best. I have been making this for years now and it ALWAYS get's gobbled up. Out of everything I cook, my husband gets excited about this dish more than any other. It's a for sure crowd pleaser- no doubt! The lemon juice is what really makes the recipe- I don't ever really measure it just squeeze into the dish until I feel like it's enough!"

  1. Sounds delicious, but do you put the chicken on top of the broccoli , then add the soup mixture or chicken on the bottom? Your recipe is not clear .
  2. As I couldn't find my mom's delicious recipe(Chicken Divan became my favorite dinner meal from this recipe). So, I tried this one. While it was very good; the lemony taste from the lemon juice was a bit too much for me.
  3. This is one of my families favorites! Yes, you layer the broccoli, the chicken, then the soup mixture, the cheese and the crackers or bread crumbs. I also add cooked chicken flavored rice-a-roni in the bottom before the broccoli for a little more depth and flavor.


  1. Add chicken or chicken/broccoli flavored Rice a Roni as the first layer for depth and flavor.


There are a lot of things I love about life, my family, my faith in God, my church family, my friends. I also enjoy so many hobbies. Working as a nurse means I work 3, 12 hour shifts a week and have 4 days off! Which gives me a lot of time to do the things I love like cooking, scrapbooking, photography and just recently herb/flower gardening! My family includes my adorable and amazing husband and my 13 year old step-son (who proves to be a challange to this new mom but we love him soo!!!) The newest love of my life is the beautiful little husky sitting on my lap in this picture. She is 5 months old and an absolute joy to our life! I also just started a new cooking blog called 'Make it homemade.' I believe we can all save a lot of money, if we use our skills to make frequently store-bought items at home in our own kitchens! Besides, homemade just taste better! Check out the link below! <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
