Chicken Broccoli Divan is a perfect weeknight meal- it's got both protein and vegetables in one dish and it's oven-ready in 10 minutes or less.  It also uses ingredients you already have on hand and is a great way to use up leftover cooked chicken (or turkey!).  Just layer the chicken and broccoli in a pie plate and smother with the creamy, savory sauce.  The cheese and buttered bread crumbs baked on top make Chicken Broccoli Divan look and taste even more delicious!

Ingredients

cost per recipe: $5.00

  • 4 cups fresh or thawed frozen broccoli florets (about 12 ounces)
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup or 98% Fat Free Cream of Chicken Soup or Cream of Chicken Soup or Condensed Unsalted Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons plain dry bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

Instructions

  • Tips

    • If preparing using Unsalted Cream of Chicken you can add salt to taste.  Our test kitchen found that 1/4 teaspoon of salt enhanced the flavor of the recipe and contributes an additional 147.5 mg of sodium per serving, but you can add less or more to make it right for you.
    • For the easiest cooked chicken, substitute 3 cans (4.5 ounces eachor 1 can (12.5 ounces) Swanson® Premium White Chunk Chicken Breast in Water, drained, for the 2 cups cooked chicken.
    • You can prep this and freeze it for later!  Assemble as directed, wrap tightly (add a layer of parchment on top under the foil so the cheese won’t stick) and freeze.  From frozen, bake, covered, at 425°F. for 45 minutes or until hot.  Or, thaw in the refrigerator and bake, covered, for 35 minutes or until hot.
    • Out of breadcrumbs? Substitute crushed cornflakes for the bread crumbs and omit the butter.
  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 400°F.  While the oven is heating, place the broccoli and chicken into a 9-inch pie plate.

  • Step 2

    Stir the soup and milk in a small bowl.  Pour the soup mixture over the broccoli and chicken.  Sprinkle with the cheese.  Stir the bread crumbs and butter in a small bowl.  Sprinkle the bread crumb mixture over the cheese.

  • Step 3

    Bake for 20 minutes or until the chicken mixture is hot.

    It was good but I thought it needed some salt and/or garlic or a little extra spice to the sauce. .i don't know how you fit 4 cups of broccoli and 2 cups of chicken and the sauce in a 9 inch pie plate. I ised a 8 X 11 1/2 pan and it was just the right size.i will definitely make this again, but spice it up a bit.

    Do you realize the video & written instructions both have different oven temps? The video says to preheat at 350/ the written directions say 400! Had this meal a lot growing up - was a favorite.

  • Loved It!

    I found this recipe on the back of a can of cream of chicken soup. Since I had all of the ingredients, I decided to give it a try and so glad that I did! I decided to season my chicken with adobo becacuse the recipe didn't mention seasoning chicken prior to combining ingredients. I was skeptical whether everything would fit inside a 9in pie pan, but of course it did just right! Very tasty dish! I recommend seasoning your chicken though.
