Easy Chicken Divan Recipe with Curry Rice

This is a simple chicken divan recipe with curry rice and broccoli. It is very similar to this old Chicken Broccoli Rice Bake recipe, but it has a little more of a tangy flavor.

One thing that I really love about this recipe (and basically all casseroles) is how big it is! It can serve around 10-12 people so it’s perfect for a party or for leftovers. Make some tonight and save the rest for lunch tomorrow!

And Chicken Divan is a classic recipe that never fails to delight! This version includes curry and lemon, to give it a little extra tang and zest! It’s my personal favorite!

This is the classic Chicken Divan recipe that we all grew up on. But now that we know better and watch more of what we consume, you can modify this recipe a little!

Low Fat Version of Chicken Divan

You can make this recipe more low fat by using low-fat sour cream (or non-fat plan greek yogurt), olive oil mayonnaise, and I would use our homemade Cream of Chicken soup recipe (it’s so much better when you have made from scratch cream of chicken soup!). These should all blend well nicely and clean up the recipe a little bit.

And instead of serving it with regular rice, you can whip up some Cauliflower Rice! Have you seen that Costco sells riced cauliflower in their veggie section? I’ve also come across the big bag of Green Giant Frozen Cauliflower rice. What a time saver! So make your own with this Cauliflower Rice recipe, or purchase the prepared stuff at Costco! In my opinion, it’s even better than real rice because the cauliflower compliments the broccoli so nicely!

Are you on the Keto Diet? We have a Keto chicken recipe that is very similar to Chicken Divan too!
