Recipe: Pie Plate Chicken Divan

Remember chicken divan?  Traditionally made with tons of high fat mayonnaise and sour cream?   But the base – chicken and broccoli is so good, and when I saw this healthier recipe for an old favorite, I decided to give it a try!


  • 1 pound chopped broccoli florets
  • 1 pound chicken, cut into small pieces
  • 1 can low fat cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded low fat cheese
  • 1/8 cup whole wheat bread crumbs


  • Pre heat oven to 450 degrees
  • Bring to a boil a large saucepan with the broccoli in it.  Boil for 5 minutes, and then drain
  • Cook the cubed chicken, flavoring with whatever spices you would like (I used McCormick’s Mesquite flavor)
  • Mix the soup and milk together
  • In a 9 inch pie plate place the broccoli, then the chicken and pour the soup evenly over it
  • Spread the cheese over it
  • Sprinkle the top with bread crumbs
  • Bake for 15 minutes

And that’s it, easy and delish!
