Chicken Divan

This is one of my favorite recipes. I stocked up on canned soup when it was on sale and had all the other ingredients on hand except for the sour cream. (Some recipes suggest a can of chicken soup and a can of mushroom soup and omitting the sour cream)
Instead of making my own breadcrumbs, I sprinkled some from a container of breadcrumbs I already had on hand.



Cooked chicken (1 breast per person)
1 lb broccoli
1 can condensed chicken soup
1 cup sour cream
3 tbsp. mayonnaise
2 teasp lemon juice
1 heaped teasp. curry powder
4 oz fresh breadcrumbs
2 oz butter
2 oz cheddar cheese (grated)


  1. Cut broccoli into small floret pieces. Cook for 2 mins in boiling water. Drain and place into shallow ovenproof dish 
  2. Place cooked chicken on top of the broccoli
  3. Mix soup, sour cream, mayonnaise, lemon juice and curry powder. Spread over chicken.
  4. Fry breadcrumbs in butter until brown. Sprinkle over top of mixture.
  5. Sprinkle cheese on top.
  6. Cook for 40 mins at 325. (Uncover for the last 5-10 mins).
Serve with rice or you can add a layer of cooked rice when making the recipe.
