Chicken and Broccoli Divan over Noodles

I have always loved Chicken and Broccoli.  I used to make it and put it over a Stove Top Stuffing recipe as a newlywed. 
Chicken and Broccoli Divan ......great over Noodles...
 I am trying to reduce the calories in some of my cooking though. So instead I'm going to try it over noodles. The basic recipe is yummy, filling and pretty easy. 

Chicken and Broccoli Casserole
RECIPE for Chicken and Broccoli Divan over Noodles
  • 3/4 pound chopped fresh broccoli (steamed 5-7 minutes)
  • 1 1/2 cups cubed, cooked chicken meat ( I grilled 3 breasts) 
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 + cup milk (depending on how thick you like it)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Johnny's Season Salt
  • Dash of lemon pepper or regular pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese or your cheese preference
  • 1/3 cup sauteed onions 
  • 1/3 cup sauteed red or yellow peppers if desired
  • wide egg noodles cooked and drained.

Some of my ingredients for the sauce, and wide egg noodles to spoon
the yummy stuff over!  
I used up my yellow peppers and it added so much flavor I'd do it again! 
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Place the broccoli in a saucepan and steam approximately 6 minutes. 
  3. Place the cooked broccoli in a casserole dish. Top with the grilled, sliced up chicken and grilled onions. In a bowl, mix the soup, sour cream, spices and milk, and pour over the chicken. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese or a mix of cheeses.  
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly.
  5. Spoon over cooked and drained individual plated servings of wide egg noodles. Enjoy!  

Steam your veggies...... I had broccoli and some leftover raw zucchini

I had a bit of leftover yellow pepper, like a 2 inch x 4 inch sliver so I added that to my onions as they were sauteing just to use it up. Surprisingly it added some pretty color and yummo flavor! 

Stir fry your peppers and onion....
Spay Pan in a casserole and pour veggies in.....

 I also had a 1/3 of zucchini so I added it to the broccoli. I had used some of the broccoli when I grilled veggies a few nights ago so didn't have quite 3/4 pound, so that's why you can see zucchini.

Mix the milk, Cream of Chicken soup and sour cream and spices.....
Cut up your previously grilled chicken....I used 3 skinless breasts....

Put those in with the veggies....

 But these are good additions for health and low cal too! Woop!

Pour the soup and sour cream mixture over the veggies and chicken....

I topped mine with shredded cheddar and fresh Parmesan cheese ... then bake it up! 
My finished Chicken and Broccoli Divan comes out bubbly and cheesy and good! 
 And color is always an added bonus!  If you like crunch like I do you can top this with slivered almonds or Chinese crunchy noodles too!
