Recipe: Chicken Divan

 Delicious and because it can be made somewhat ahead, it is ideal to serve at dinner parties. If you prefer more sauce, double the sauce recipe.
Chicken Divan
(printable recipe)
2 cups chicken, cooked and broken up into pieces - I saute chicken chunks in olive oil
2 - 10 oz. packages of frozen broccoli, cooked and drained well or fresh broccoli, cooked.

6 tablespoons butter
6 tablespoons flour
3 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
4 teaspoons prepared mustard
2 tablespoons minced onion
2 tablespoons dry sherry (add just before serving)
salt and pepper to taste

Sauce: In a saucepan, melt butter. Blend in flour, adding gradually. Gradually add broth, stirring until thick.

Then add heavy cream, Worcestershire sauce, cheese, mustard, and minced onion. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Stir over low heat until cheese is melted. Pour sauce over chicken and broccoli in a casserole dish. Follow cooking directions. Serve with rice.

Refrigerate or freeze. To cook, return to room temperature and cook in 400' oven 25-30 minutes. Dash sherry over all before serving.
 Note: You can make sauce 2 days ahead - cook chicken - combine both and cook day of the dinner.

I see this recipe all over the web and I have yet to ever give it a try. I like your homemade bechamel sauce better than the condensed soup versions. So now you have persuaded me to make this.
