Mom brought this recipe home with her many years ago after a visit with her sister-in-law, my Aunt Irene.

The amounts listed are purely suggestions, so don't be afraid to experiment. Isn't that how you make the best casseroles ever? =^..^=

How to Make Irene's Chicken Divan

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mist a 13 x 9" baking dish with cooking spray. Set a large pan of water on the stove to boil.
  • 2Tear chicken into smaller pieces and put them in the prepared baking dish. Set aside.
  • 3When the water in the pan begins to boil, add 1/2 package of egg noodles AND the frozen broccoli. Cook 10 minutes or so, until they are done to your taste.
  • 4Drain the noodles and broccoli, then return them to the pan. Add the large can of soup & ~1/2 can of water. Stir it all together well.
  • 5Pour the soup & noodle mixture over the chicken.
  • 6Top with shredded cheddar cheese. I start with about 2 cups, but I usually add more, if I have it.
  • 7Bake the casserole at 350 degrees F. for about 20 minutes or so, until the cheese is melted and the casserole is bubbly.
  • 8NOTE: When I find chicken breasts on sale, I usually buy LOTS. Then I cook & freeze some of them for quick meals, such as this one, or the Chicken Enchiladas I still need to add to this site. =^..^=
