Chicken Divan

Comforting classic chicken, rice and broccoli in a cheesy sauce. 
Course: Main Course
Cuisine: American
Servings: 3

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 10 ounce box frozen Green Giant broccoli cheese sauce
  • 1 can Campbell’s Cream of Celery soup
  • ½ can milk
  • ¼ can chicken stock
  • ¼ can white wine pinot or sauvignon blanc are good choices, just not a sweet Moscato
  • ½ cup grated sharp cheddar cheese

Instructions

Original recipe:

  • Make a small slit in the broccoli’s clear package and microwave for 2 minutes.
  • Cut the raw chicken into bite size pieces and season with salt and pepper.
  • Blend the chicken, soup, milk, stock, wine and broccoli cheddar in a medium size bowl then pour into a 9×13 baking dish.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes then top with the grated cheese and bake another couple of minutes until the cheese is melted. If you like a browned top, broil instead until the cheese is golden and melted. Serve over rice.

Updated recipe:

  • Add a tablespoon of olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat. Once it’s hot, add the bite size pieces of chicken in a single layer and season with salt and pepper.
  • Sear the chicken on both sides then move it to the edges of the skillet (the chicken won’t be cooked through at this point).
  • Deglaze the skillet with the wine, letting it reduce to about half and scraping any brown bits from the chicken off the bottom of the skillet.
  • Microwave the broccoli 2 minutes in its package (again, giving the package a small pierce) then add it to the skillet along with the soup, milk and chicken stock stirring to combine everything.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes then top with the grated cheese and bake another couple of minutes until the cheese is melted. If you like a browned top, broil instead until the cheese is golden and melted. Serve over rice.
