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!
Ingredients You'll Need
Chicken breast, cooked and sliced; or leftover roast or rotisserie chicken; or canned chicken

3 T. cornstarch

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, and cornstarch together in a sauce pan. Bring to boil and cook until thickened. Stir in cheese. Pour over top of casserole. Bake in an oven preheated to 350F for 20-30 minutes or until cheese is melted and casserole is bubbly.
