Is Your Chicken Divan This Divine?

Chicken Divan is one of the great classic recipes from the 1950’s. A famous restaurant, The Divan Parisian, in the New York Chatham Hotel, made this one of their signature dishes in the early 20th century. The 1950 recipe called for broccoli, a good amount of mayonnaise and poached breasts of chicken (ugh!) either cut up into cubes or shredded. With the addition of one of the many Campbell soups, cream of mushroom, chicken or broccoli, this recipe was more often than not turned into a satisfying and comforting casserole. If you are old enough you will remember the Campbell’s Soup Kids with their adorable pudgy faces and rosey cheeks. And who can forget that famous jingle,” M’m! M’m! Good!”
