Chicken Divan


For a very simple, but delicious meal, you need to make this chicken divan. No weird ingredients, just a simple cheesy white sauce baked with chicken and broccoli. Served over rice, it's filling and comforting.



 

Chicken Divan

Serves 6


4-5 chicken breasts or meat from 1 rotisserie chicken

1 (12 oz.) bag frozen broccoli florets

4 tablespoons butter

4 tablespoons white rice flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

2 cups chicken broth

1 cup milk

1 cup shredded parmesan cheese


If cooking your own chicken, spray a 9x13-inch baking dish and lay out the chicken breasts. Bake at 400°F for 30 minutes or until juices run clear. Shred the chicken with two forks. Spray the 9x13-inch baking dish again and put the shredded chicken back in. Stir in the broccoli. Set aside. In a saucepan, melt the butter, then add the flour. and cook until bubbly. Stir in the salt and pepper, chicken broth, and milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until it thickens. Add the parmesan cheese and stir until melted. Pour the sauce over the chicken and broccoli. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes or until bubbling. Serve over rice.
