Easy Chicken Divan Recipe

This recipe for chicken divan is one of my mother-in-law’s claim to fame! My husband used to ask her to make for his birthday every year when he was still living at home and he still requests it when we visit her home a few times a year. My kids now love it and squeal with delight when I tell them it happens to be on the menu. The creamy sauce with the moist chicken and soft broccoli is literally mouth-watering good.

My favorite way to serve this recipe is on a bed of rice.  Simply make a batch of your favorite rice recipe and lay a piece of chicken on top and smother it in the creamy divan sauce.
