Chicken Divan

Want an easy recipe that can be put together in 20 minutes or less and ready in another 45?
If so, this one is for you.

First layer some frozen or fresh broccoli in the bottom of a greased casserole or pie plate.
Next add some cooked shredded chicken over the top. This is a great way to use up leftovers or you can boil and shred a couple of chicken breasts. I often times use leftover turkey from Thanksgiving with wonderful results.

In a mixing bowl blend 1 can of cream of chicken soup, about a cup of mayonnaise, a third cup of sour cream, a splash of lemon juice and a squirt of mustard.  I then add the following seasonings to taste (clockwise from bottom left): my Signature Spice Blend, cardamom, coriander and curry powder. I find you don't need any extra salt but some freshly ground black pepper is a nice touch.

Blend the seasonings into the soup mix and spoon over the top of the chicken and broccoli.

Now top with grated cheddar, some chopped, fresh parsley and maybe another dash or two of my Signature Spice Blend for added color.

Bake in a 350 oven for about 45 minutes (until golden and bubbly).

Allow to rest approximately 5 minutes before serving.

Yum! Pure comfort on a plate!

Yummy! I love just about anything with sour cream. I think it's the Polish ancestry in me.

Hey Polly! This sounds lovely! My hubby would really like it. :) Homeshcooling is sort of on a break. I decided Beau needed some deschooling, so I'm waiting on him. ;)

I was just thinking the other day about all the yummy things I want to make with leftover turkey this year, this just moved to the top of the list! It looks amazing! :)

Looks really good and easy to make.

Must try if when I have some leftover chicken. I always get stuck with the leftovers this way my kids might actually eat the leftovers with me.

Thank you for stopping by and following me.

To answer your question...the plant is completely closing down and the building is for sale.
