Many moons ago, I served Turkey Divan after Thanksgiving to use up leftover Turkey. So when we had some extra meat from roasting chickens last weekend, it only seemed perfect to give this Cheesy Chicken Divan a try.
It’s an easy casserole, perfect to use up leftover chicken or even turkey, or if you are in a hurry with no leftovers, you grab a rotisserie chicken at the store.
A layer of cooked broccoli covers the bottom, I used fresh broccoli, but you could certainly use up leftovers or a bag of frozen broccoli as well. Then a layer of chicken, and then creamy combination of soup, mayonnaise and lemon juice.
And thick layer of shredded cheese makes the casserole even more creamy and then topped with stuffing mix, or you can also use bread crumbs.
This Cheesy Chicken Divan would also be a great make-ahead meal, and can also be frozen.
