You will love this recipe and it is easy to cook. My son does not like broccoli, nor did my boyfriend like casserole dishes - but both of them love this one!

My husband loves this one! I boil the chicken first and shred it with a fork instead of chunks. Also I don't heat the soup mixture -- just layer shredded chicken frozen broccoli then the soup/mayo/curry concoction and top with cheese. The whole thing gets thrown in the oven for about an hour until it's all hot and I have time to do homework etc. while it's cooking. I serve with hot sticky steamed white rice. One more thing -- low fat cream of chicken soup works great--no taste difference and hopefully a little healthier.:o) Read More

I followed this recipe to the T and I did not care for it. I wish I could say I did something wrong but I know I didn't. I think it's all the cream of chicken soup but I didn't care for the taste =( Read More

Like another user said this is the Chicken Divan I on which I grew up. With my changes (the same or similar to others) this dish is truly PERFECT! First only use 2 cans of cream of chicken soup with 1 C of sour cream and 1 C of mayonaise. I added 3 t of curry (I simply can not imagine less) as well and doubled the lemon juice. As for the chicken I boil then debone an entire chicken then shred all meat but the breast which I save for other recipes. I also add a can of chopped water chestnuts. If you have not tried this addition some people say it makes the dish! Per another user's recommendation I layered all of this over 4 cups of cooked white rice. This just puts it over the top as the rice is more flavorful than if served over the rice cooked separately. On top I do a layer of buttered breadcrumbs with a light coating of Parmesan cheese. I suppose my recipe looks much different than this original now that I see all of my changes but I will post this here in hopes it will be a blessing to someone who is wanting to make the most scrumptious dish of broccoli chicken casserole they have ever tasted!

By all means PLEASE use the Curry! I've made this dish every Thanksgiving for the past 20 years with leftover turkey. My finicky family loves this. Read More

All the ingredients for a great dish are in here but the preparation is not quite right. Firstly you'll get a lot more flavour in the chicken if you bake it or fry it in some olive oil and season it with salt and pepper. Also rather than cooking the sauce beforehand just pour all the ingredients together (once the broccoli and chicken have been pre-cooked) and bake it for 30 to 35 minutes total. Also mix the cheese into the sauce mixture rather than just sprinkling it over the top. If it had been done this way it would have been 5 stars for sure!! Read More

I'm so happy! been looking for this recipe for 30 years since I lost the original I had! (One of the 1st things I learned to cook so remembered it fondly!) I cut in half used 1 can of soup and frozen broccoli since I never have fresh. Actually kept curry amount at 1 tsp. - this is the ONLY dish I have ever eaten in which I like curry -! yum!!:) Can't give it 5 stars cause it's SO not-pretty:) Read More

This recipe was so yummy! I followed the directions for the most part but made a few changes. I did add more cheese than called for as my family loves cheese. I boiled some egg noodles and mixed them in with the rest of the ingredients. Turned out great!!!! I will make again Thank you! Read More

Thank you for posting this! With a few alterations this is the "Chicken Divan" recipe I've been trying to recover for years: Increased curry to 3T and increased the lemon juice to 4T. My "old" recipe used two cans (not three) of cream of mushroom soup versus cream of chicken so I used that instead and added one cup of sour cream. Three cans of soup plus the sour cream is just too much liquid but the addition of sour cream is a MUST in my opinion. I did not heat the soup mix prior to baking (and added a handful (about 1/4 cup) of shredded cheddar to the soup mix). Sprinkled remaining cheddar (plus some extra) on the top and then a layer of fine breadcrumbs (1/4 cup) on top of the cheese dotted with butter. This creates a delicious thin "crust" on top. Increased cooking time to 30 minutes. Our favorite way to enjoy this is over lightly buttered and salted egg noodles. This is great alternative for those that don't care for rice and you can still enjoy every ounce of the scrumptious sauce!! My husband was thrilled that I found our new Chicken Divan "standard" recipe and this will probably be on our table about once a month! Read More

Pretty good but I like my altered version better. I only used 2 cans of soup cut back to 1 tsp. lemon juice and 1/2 tsp. curry powder. I layered the bottom of the pan with rice before putting it in oven. Yum! Read More
