Chicken Da-BOMB: A Chicken Divan Recipe, Only Better!

Ma, whats for dinner? The question every mom hates to hear. And then think about. Because if you don’t know, chances are you’ll end up making something quick and dirty (read: not healthy). I have two words for you: Chicken Divan. And I’m sharing my Chicken Divan recipe with you. You can thank me later. I know what you’re thinking…it’s old school. Boring. Something you’re mom used to make and force you to eat. But not this one! My family refers to it as “Chicken Da- Bomb”. The best part of this chicken divan recipe is that you’ll probably have everything on hand, and if you don’t you can buy everything ready made at the store.

Chicken Da Bomb: A Chicken Divan Recipe, Only Better!
Author: Natalie –
  • 2 cups frozen chopped broccoli
  • 3 cups cubed cooked chicken (need a last minute dinner? Pick up a rotisserie chicken and shred it!)
  • 1 -2 cups cooked rice
  • 1 cans (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1 cans (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup – approximately 4 ounces (or more!) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  1. Place the frozen broccoli in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Top with chicken.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the rice, soups, mayonnaise and lemon juice, then spread over chicken. Sprinkle with cheese.
  3. Combine bread crumbs and butter; sprinkle over top.
  4. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 30 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Seriously awesome dinner. Not super healthy or low in calories, but then not everything has to be all the time!

    That looks seriously yummy. I love using leftover rotisserie chicken in recipes. Such a time and effort saver.
  4. Hmmmm, I am going to dinner with friends tonight and need something for Ryan & the kids. I know I don't have the soups, so I am improvising in my head as I type...
  5. it's something like this that i make for my kiddies and me when my husband won't be home. he has a serious aversion to mayo, just knowing it's in there is enough to keep him away.
  6. That looks yummy. I'll have to try it!
  7. That looks delish! It may have to make its way onto my table this week.
  8. OK, I'm eating my cereal right now, but this looks awesome! I get that question first thing every morning from my son, like he's planning his whole day around dinner.

  10. Looks FAB-U-LOS!!
  11. parenting ad absurdum says:
    You had me at cheese. And bread crumbs. And butter. And...well, pretty much at "dinner."
  12. JDaniel4's Mom says:
    I have never used both mushroom and cream of chicken soups. I will have use them next time I make Chicken Divan. It is a favorite at my house.
  13. mmmm mmmm mmmm! That looks good!
  14. erin margolin says:
    looks sooo good! i bet my kids will gobble it up. and i LOVE Panko!!
  15. says:
    Huh. I almost never hear that question. Probably because I once set the kitchen floor on fire with a pop tart and, on another occasion, burned popcorn so badly the fire department showed up.
    But this sounds yum! And easy!
    But what are planko bread crumbs?
