Cheddar Chicken Divan

This recipe is one my mom received from my friend Renee Borkowski and her mom Evelyn Sims Litner many many years ago. It is a great recipe and reminds me of a weekend afternoon lunch my family shared with Renee and her family long ago.

Cheddar Chicken Divan

3 lbs of chicken breasts skinned and sliced
2 C cheddar cheese
2 10 oz pkgs of frozen chopped broccoli
1/4 C butter
1/4 C flour
2 C milk
1/2 tsp salt
dash of cayenne pepper
1/4 C sliced almonds

Melt butter, stir in flour, milk and seasonings to create a white sauce.

Cook and drain broccoli.

Add 1 3/4 C cheddar cheese to the sauce created from the flour, milk and seasonings, stir until melted.

Arrange broccoli and sliced cooked chicken in a baking dish. Top with the white/cheese sauce.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes. When you remove the casserole from the oven top it with the remaining cheese and and the almonds. This serves six.
