Chicken Divan Recipe is another great dish for those busy weeknights.  Super simple to prepare and delicious, Chicken Divan is a great recipe where you are cooking the veggies right along with everything else.  If you have picky eaters that are resistant to trying new veggies, cooking them along with chicken that is smothered in a cheese sauce is a wonderful way to sneak them in.

Another thing I love about Chicken Divan Recipe, is that you can make it ahead of time and keep in the refrigerator until it is time to bake.  This can really help save you time in the evening, just pull it out and pop it in the preheated oven.  A quick tip when making the cheese sauce, taste it before you add it to the baking dish.  You may feel like you would prefer some extra seasoning, just and salt and pepper to taste.  You could also add in a pinch (or more if you like) of crushed red pepper to add a little heat.

I happen to love asparagus in any form, but if you absolutely don’t like it, you can use broccoli and cauliflower or some of your other favorite veggies.

    Hi,
    I saw Kim Rutledge yesterday and she reminded me about this website. I met you last year I think at Lin’s July 4th party. Anyway I am so glad I went back to it, we have been in such a chicken and dinner rut. Looking forward to trying a bunch of your recipes. Doing this one tonight! Thanks!

        It was delicious and both my hubby and 3-year old gobbled it up! I also used the water I cooked the chicken with in place of commercial broth and then I used some more to cook some rice on the side and it turned out really yummy as well. I was thinking of trying your Chicken Swiss recipe next. We have been so sick of eating chicken breastlately, these recipes could make us like it again!!! Thanks!

        So happy to hear everyone loved the dinner! It is always great finding new ways to prepare chicken, and other commonly used ingredients. Chicken Swiss is one of my favorite comfort foods, my mom used to make it all the time. The new recipes will be coming a little slower, we are expecting a baby in a couple weeks, but there are plenty of recipes for you to try out.

    Congrats! Me too- I am 25 weeks- one reason I am too lazy to think up chicken recipes so I am just going to steal yours! lol
    Hey I went to Cafe Cartier today and had the most amazing dessert called a sopapilla cheesecake danish. I looked online and this sounds awfully close:
