I loved this recipe. I have made Chicken Divan before that require Mayo and it was horrible. This meal was filling and delicious without the overpowering taste of Mayo (we really hate mayo). My 2 kids (4yo and 11 month old) devoured this meal. Absolutely delicious. This is the perfect last minute meal. I also tweaked this recipe: I used 1 pound package of frozen broccoli and cooked it according to the package. For the Chicken I seasoned it with Lemon Pepper Seasoning. I put both in an 8x8 baking dish. For the soup mixture I used part milk and part sour cream. I also added 1/4tsp Thyme and a dash of garlic powder. I then..combined the chicken broccoli and soup...tossing it well. then topped it with cheese and the breadcrumb mixture. The breadcrumbs were too mushy for me and I ended up using 1/4 cup bread crumbs to the 1 T melted butter. I also heated it for 20 minutes at 375 degrees.
I love this recipe!! It is exactly what I have been looking for. I pretty much followed the recipe except I added lots more cheese and cooked the broccoli longer (My son likes mushy broccoli...don't ask) This will be a regular on our menu! Thank you!
This was my favorite dish that my mother who passed away when I was 17 ever used to make for us. I never could find her recipe! So this one looked promising but when I first made it following this recipe exactly it turned out a little bland (reason for the 3 star rating). I took the advice of some other reviewers and tried this again but cooked the chicken with minced garlic generous garlic salt rather than garlic powder and fresh cracked pepper. Delicious! The soup I chose was Cream of Chicken and Mushroom (but I think most cooking soups would work...I would however avoid the Cream of Broccoli and vouch for something more flavorful.) and I mixed that with the milk and a little less than 1/3 C sour cream as well as 1/2 cup cheese. I then sprinkled a bit more cracked pepper on top of the mixture followed by a bit more cheese and was not shy at all with the breadcrumbs (use Parmesan!) which I recommend a double dose of! This turned out FANTASTIC...just like my mom's - along with a few easily made changes this is a great dish worth trying. I will double the recipe next time. Wish I had more leftovers!
I really liked this and will do it again. However I would like to make a comment. Why not review the recipe as it is presented instead of making up a new recipe with all your own additions and then posting a review of that? Honestly if you want to create a recipe of your own do so but please respect the author of the original. I'm just sayin'
This recipe turned out really well. I served it for dinner at my boyfriend's parents house and got a lot of compliments! I combined a couple of the recipes for chicken divan but used this one (well more the reviews for this one) as a base. Here was my final recipe: I doubled the recipe and cooked in a 9x13 baking dish at 400 for about 20 minutes. Instead of fresh broccoli I used 2 bags of frozen broccoli florets. I cooked 6 smaller chicken breasts in bite size pieces with garlic powder paprika and a little bit of salt. I used 2 cans of condensed cream of chicken soup 2/3 c milk 1 c sour cream 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (doubled for the bigger size but also double what the recipe called for!) 1 tsp lemon juice 2 tsp garlic powder Then for the crumb topping I used a bout 1/3 c bread crumbs & then filled up to the 1/2 c mark with parmesan cheese sprinkled some extra garlic powder into the topping and spread that over the top. I used the butter spray on top but melted butter mixed in would have been just as good. There was a LOT of filling but it was so good everyone was using it on the other side dishes. It was very good served over white rice to soak in some of the extra filling.
Made this last night and it was a hit. I can get my 2 year old to eat broccoli just about always but surprisingly it's the Chicken I have a hard time getting her to eat. She couldn't finish this fast enough.:-) I added some fresh garlic to the chicken when I cooked it up and I also added pepper poultry seasoning and a cajan spice combo I had to the chicken as well. I added a pinch of salt pepper garlic powder (love garlic in our family) and some spike to the brocoli before steaming it. I didn't have any cream of broccoli so I used cream of mushroom and we didn't have any bread crumbs so I decided to crumble up a piece of left over corn bread as a substatute. IT WAS AWESOME!! I would suggest doubling the cheese and I will definetly double the corn bread topping too.:-) It was great! Thank you!!!!!
Really loved this recipe! I have made it several times. Followed the recipe exactly the first time and it was wonderful. Since there was quite a bit of sauce the second time I made it I decided to make it into a casserole and added 8 oz of egg noodles increased the milk to 1 cup and added 1/2 cup of sour cream to the mix and put it in a casserole dish and cooked at 350 for 20 min. I've also subed ham (cubed) for the chicken and made ham noodle broccoli casserole! Kids love it.
This is my go-to recipe when my evening is running late and I still have to make dinner. I cook the chicken with some rosemary and thyme or lemon pepper or any herb/spice that hits my fancy. The chicken needs a little something more than just being cooked. I normally steam my broccoli in the microwave as opposed to boiling it. I top off the dish with colby jack or mozzarella & freshly grated parmesan and panko bread crumbs. My boyfriend loves this dish and will gobble up 3/4 of the recipe on his own:)

This was ok but not that good. It was so obvious that a can of soup was used. Maybe good receipe for a biginner cook or someone who doen't have much time to cook. My family didn't really care...
