Chicken Divan

Gram's Chicken Divan - slightly altered

My Gram made her Chicken Divan for a banquet the other day and it was so good that I asked her for the recipe!  It turned out that she had already given it to me at Christmas time in a recipe box that she gave everyone!  I had to alter it a little as Bear can't eat soy.  Here it is!

  • White sauce or 2 10.5 oz cans of cream of chicken
  • 2 cups of cooked chicken or turkey
  • 20 oz of cooked broccoli
  • 1 cup of American cheese
  •  3/4 cup of mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt (to taste esp. if using white sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon of melted butter
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
Combine first 7 ingredients in a greased baking dish (you may mix it together first or layer it putting the white sauce and cheese on top.) In a separate bowl combine melted butter and bread crumbs to make topping (you can also use crushed potato chips instead.)  Sprinkle on top to cover.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until the bread crumbs brown. Serve as is or on top of rice!

To make this dish soy free we used white sauce, canola based mayonnaise, and matzo bread crumbs.

Bear really liked it!  He kept saying I like broccoli!!!! Bella only had a bite but she was not hungry.
