Chicken Divan a la Jodi

Torrey Moseley


My bestest friend Jodi first cooked this for me YEARS ago. It has since become a family favorite, and the ultimate in comfort food. I've tweaked it here and there, but basically it's her recipe. It's really yummy, and a very good way to get your kids to eat the dreaded BROCCOLI. Oh and...all measurements are guesstimations. I'm not one to measure when I'm cooking. Baking, yes, cooking...NO.

How to Make Chicken Divan a la Jodi


  1. Preheat oven to 375. Spray 9x13 glass baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In bowl, mix canned soup, mayonnaise, milk, 1/2 tsp garlic powder until well blended.
  3. In separate bowl, mix bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, melted butter and 1 tsp. garlic powder, salt and pepper until crumbs are well-coated.
  4. Break broccoli tops into florets, slice stem about 1/4 inch thick. Cook broccoli on stovetop (with about 2 inches water in bottom of pan) until almost done...but not-quite tender (don't want it mushy). Drain.
  5. Boil Chicken, drain, then cut into cubes (1/2 to 1 inch).
  6. Spread cooked chicken pieces, evenly, over bottom of pan.
  7. Spread steamed broccoli over chicken layer.
  8. Spoon/pour soup/mayo mix evenly over broccoli.
  9. Spread on layer of grated cheese (I like LOTS).
  10. Cover entire thing with bread crumb mixture.
  11. Pop into oven for about 20 minutes until bread crumbs are browned, cheese is melty, and it's hot all the way through.
