Why I Love This Recipe
Our family often has roast or rotisserie chicken. Chicken Divan is one of my go-to recipes for using the leftover chicken. Our family loves it!

Layer the cooked broccoli into the bottom of a buttered casserole dish. Top with cooked chicken. Meanwhile mix chicken broth, milk or half and half, sour cream and cornstarch together in a sauce pan.
