My family loves this recipe. My kids love it because the broccoli is 'hidden' under all the chicken and cheese! This is an excellent way to use up leftovers.

Love this recipe got it from a friend last year with these differences (1) use milk instead of mayonnaise; (2) add 1 tsp. garlic powder; (3) add 1/2 - 1 tsp. curry powder (husband & I like more daughter less so I use no more than 1/2 tsp.); (4) bake 20 mins. sprinkle lightly with dry bread crumbs bake 10 mins. more. I use 98% fatfree soups and skim milk. Good with noodles or rice. Read More

Mediocre at best. Canned soup in the sauce gives this an artificial taste. I'll do the the work and make the "old fashioned" recipe which is delicious. Read More

This is an awesome recipe with modifications. For those that said it lacked flavor add 1/2 teaspoon curry and an extra teaspoon of lemon juice. I also use more chicken only 1/2 cup shredded cheddar which is cooked with the rest of the sauce ingredients until cheese is melted then poured over cooked chicken and steamed broccoli (make sure to pat with paper towels) and sprinkled with a bread crumb mixture of 2 tbsp. melted butter and 1/2 c. bread crumbs. WONDERFUL! This is excellent with Uncle Ben's Long Grain and Wild Rice mix - originaly recipe served on the side. Read More

Wow...this dish caused the biggest reaction I have ever had about dinner from my husband! He loved it. I thought it was great too...Definately a keeper. I did use 2 cans of cream of chicken instead of the cream of mushroom...no mushroom lovers in our house...thanks for a great and easy recipe!! p.s. have made this many times since now I just use fresh broccoli not frozen. Cooks fine so no need to precook. Read More

Oh my gosh! This was outstanding! I used uncooked chicken. Used large frozen broccoli flowers. Chopped up my raw chicken breast and put on top. I added about 1/4 cup cheese to soup mixture and added pepper to taste. Baked about 35-40 minutes then topped with the cheese and baked 10 minutes more. Chicken was so tender. Served over rice. This was so fast to prepare and delish! My family went crazy over this. Thanks so much Shannon!! Read More

I absolutely love this recipe I have basicly used this recipe years. I use a topping of mozzerella and add herbed breadcrumbs and butter for a golden topping and my niece and nephew love it! Read More

This was delicious but a bit on the salty side even though I used reduced sodium soups. I think this would be outstanding if you were to place the broccoli and chicken on a bed of wild rice then pour the soup mixture and cheese over it. I know that Chicken Divan does not have rice in it but the rice would add a nice nutty texture and flavor while absorbing some of the excess salt. Thanks Shannon. Read More

Excellent flavor. You need to serve over rice or noodles to soak up some of the liquid. I added a little curry for a different flavor. Read More
