NOW... today's recipe
Chicken Divan
It has been awhile since I made this, but I have a real craving for it, so I'm sure it will be made soon. It is super yummy! This comes from one of my favorites, Paula Deen
from her Food Network recipe list. I hope you enjoy it! My husband even likes it and he is not a fan of curry... so don't let that ingredient throw you off.
Ingredients
2 (10-ounce) packages frozen broccoli, chopped
6 cups shredded chicken, cooked
2 (10 3/4-ounce) cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1 cup grated sharp Cheddar
1 tablespoon fresh
lemon juice
1 teaspoon curry powder
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1/2 cup soft
bread crumbs
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Remove the outer wrappers from the boxes of broccoli. Open 1 end of each box. Microwave on full power for 2 minutes, until thawed. Drain the broccoli and put into a casserole dish. Add the shredded chicken.
In a medium bowl, combine the soup, mayonnaise, sour cream, Cheddar, lemon juice, curry powder, salt and pepper, to taste, and wine. Whisk together to make a sauce. Pour the sauce over the broccoli and chicken. Mix well with a spatula.
Place the mixture into an 11 by 7-inch casserole dish or 2 (9-inch) square disposable aluminum foil pans that have been sprayed with vegetable oil cooking spray. Pat down evenly and smooth with a spatula. Combine the Parmesan, bread crumbs and butter and sprinkle over the top.
Bake for about 30 to 45 minutes.

I make a similar dish and it is a family favorite. I've never tried it with the curry though. I'm going to add it next time, sounds like it would be really yummy!

I'm so glad you two started TMTT, it sure is fun!

My big sister, from my college sorority days, taught me how to make Chicken Divan. Her recipe was almost exactly the same as yours...yummmmm!

I'm new to blogging, when I started my blog it was because I thought it was a good way to share recipes with my family. Now, because of TMTT I can share my recipes with the blog world and get new recipe from others. Thanks for starting TMTT. Geri

Paula Deen to me is the like the Oprah of cooking so if she says it's good it must be good. I am not a big fan of curry either but I am going to give this one a go. :)

Emily @ Marvelous Recipes said...

I love curry and this sounds great! Thanks for sharing!

Sandra said...

Chicken Divan has fast become one of my families favorite meals.

Live.Love.Eat said...

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY FOR TMTT!!! How exciting! And this is a perfect dish to celebrate. This sounds delicious. And the curry is awesome. Just a tsp, don't think it's enough for anyone to be turned off who don't like curry.

ahorne said...

Paula Deen cracks me up - when I read her recipes, I can always hear her saying, "I am not your nurse!!" (in response to 'what about all the mayonnaise and butter in your recipes?') She's a hoot.
I just found TMTT, and look forward to trying out lots of new recipes. Happy Anniversary and congrats!

A happy heart at home said...

I've never made Chicken Divan. It sounds delicous! I linked up a recipe for chocolate chip cookie dough brownies on TMTT. :)
