Chicken Divan

Or as Russell always called it growing up, "Chick in dee truck!"

We love this dinner and it is one of the few that even my pickiest eaters gobble up. Cut up the chicken and broccoli really fine and babies can't get enough! I am frequently asked for the recipe.

This recipe comes from my Mom, but I have altered it a little, so here's my version.

Chicken Divan

2 bunches fresh broccoli, cut and steamed
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
4 cups chicken broth
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 Tbs. lemon juice
1 tsp. salt
3 or 4 chicken breasts cooked and cubed
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (Plus some to sprinkle on top)

Preheat oven to 350.

Put cooked broccoli in the bottom of a greased 9x13 baking dish.
Melt butter in a saucepan. Blend in flour. Add chicken broth. Cook and stir until thick and bubbly. Stir in Cream of chicken soup, lemon juice, salt, Parmesan cheese and a dash of pepper.

Pour half the mixture over the broccoli. Top with the cubed chicken. Pour the remainder of the sauce on top. Sprinkle additional Parmesan cheese on top. Bake for 20 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Broil until top browns just a little.

Serve over rice (which, of coarse, you cooked while it was in the oven!)
