Chicken Divan

This is my Neneie's recipe (my mom's mom). She was a great great cook. This is a family favorite. It's creamy and delicious. It's perfect served over rice.



2 bunches of broccoli 6 cooked chicken breasts, sliced

1/4 c butter shredded parmesan cheese

1/4 c flour 2 c. chicken broth

1/2 c heavy cream--I use skim milk 1/2 t salt

pepper to taste

Cook broccoli until just done-still crisp.

Heat butter in a sauce pan and add flour stirring constantly, it will become thick, add broth all at once and stir and cook until it bubbles

add the cream, or milk, salt and pepper. Cook a few minutes.

In a 9 by 13 pan lay the broccoli and pour 1/2 the sauce on it.

Now layer the chicken over broccoli. Now add 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese to sauce, heat through and pour over chicken. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 until heated through and broil until golden on top. 6-8 Servings.
