It's always a good idea to par-boil (1-2 mins) any fresh vegetables and lightly saute onions..mushrooms..garlic, etc., before assembling casseroles of any sort. Makes a difference in taste and desired results.

Do you have to par-boil the fresh broccoli first because that sounds great?

I love this recipe for chicken divan! It has always been one of my favorite meals, and this is a super fast, easy, and inexpensive way to make it. I made it exactly as the recipe instructed, except I did not have lemon juice. Instead, I seasoned the chicken with lemon pepper seasoning and it was perfect! Loved it and will be making it again :)

Very good. Modified a few things after reading suggestions of other reviews. Added additional 1/4c cheese and 1 Tbsp real bacon pieces to soup mixture, salt and pepper to taste to chicken and broccoli in baking dish (easy on the salt), mixed 2 Tbsp real bacon pieces to cheese before sprinkling over top, and used Italian bread crumbs. To cut down on the fat content, used reduced fat soup, olive oil mayo, light margarine, (could have also used 2% cheese).

This is a great quick and tasty meal for those busy school nights. I use deli roast chicken, fresh broccoli, 98% fat free soup and multi-grain soft bread crumbs. I don't even bother steaming the broccoli beforehand. The oven cooks it up perfectly al dente. This recipe is called "Easy-on-the-Cook Chicken Divan" in my 1996 Pillsbury Cookbook and it sure is. Back then, it called for a whole pound of broccoli. With today's push to eat more veggies, that sounds pretty good to me!

Really easy and delicious; both my husband and my son (who does not like veggies) raved over it! I modified it slightly be using Italian seasoned bread crumbs and I added 2 T of real bacon bits. The next time I make it I am going to use broccoli florets instead of the broccoli cuts; that should make it really festive!

I sauteed the chicken in fresh garlic, olive oil and Italian seasoning. Then added it to the casserole. I also used the seasoned Cr. of Chicken Soup. It was really good!!
