Grandma’s Chicken Divan *

Save yourself a trip from the kitchen and use ingredients you’ve on-hand.

Or if you must, make a grocery list (send Ol’Lard Butt out to get exercise).

Make A List:

  • Broccoli
  • Chicken Breasts
  • Cream of Chicken Soup
  • One cup of white wine
  • Lemon
  • Sharp yellow or white cheddar cheese or provolone
  • Corn flakes browned in butter

Whenever you are ready, your hands are clean, and the chicken is well rinsed, begin. Slice the chicken breasts, add a couple cloves of garlic, and stuff the cavity of the chicken. Use cut up/diced broccoli and add with your favorite herbs and cheese. I am not sure how Grandma used the corn flakes, but I would add them crushed on top.

Preheat oven to 300 degrees and bake for 90-100 minutes.

You may want to add more cheese later in the baking process.

You might also want to think about baking it at 325 and have it done within an hour in the oven.

Wine is as good as life to a man if it be drunk moderately; what is life then to a man that is without wine? For it was made to make men glad.

Wine measurably drank, and in season, bringeth gladness of the heart and cheerfulness of the mind.  ~ Ecclesiastics, 31:27-28
