Contest-Winning Broccoli Chicken Casserole
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min.
Using what I had on hand, I substituted cream of chicken soup and Velveeta. It turned out well. I can see that the recipe can be easily tailored to specific tastes with lots of different substitution options.
To Linda: the upset stomach could also be additives in the stuffing mix. Stuffing mix tastes great, but I'm not convinced but it's the healthiest thing on the planet. Frankly, there are so many processed ingredients in this recipe that I will not make it.
Could the upset stomach be because of MSG in the soup? MSG could be identified as: 'Flavour enhancer (MSG)', or. 'Flavour enhancer (621)'.
I am a big fan of Chicken Divan. I made this yesterday and have had an upset stomach ever since.....not sure if it's because I used Progresso's broccoli cheese soup as I couldn't find Campbell's brand, but the soup addition gave the entree a weird taste and I will not be finishing it. I'll try the recipe again but use cream of chicken or cream of celery. I still have a broccoli cheese soup after taste even this morning.

Hubby loves this one.
I have been making this for a couple of months and tried as originally written and really liked. Over time, I have made a couple of changes to suit my tastes...Used cream of chicken soup, added additional broccoli and sautéed celery and onion to add more veg’s to the dressing. When I don’t have fresh chicken I sub (12.5 oz) canned chicken breast. Excellent as written...easy to modify to taste.
I am not normally a fan of recipes that use Campbell's soup, but this one is a "keeper". I used 1 1/2 times the chicken (about 1 pound of cubed cooked chicken) to increase the protein to carbohydrate ratio. I think I might try the Campbell's Cheddar Cheese soup, or the Cream of Chicken as another reviewer recommended next time as I don't care for the broccoli flavor of Broccoli Cheese soup.
We really liked this. I did make a couple changes as I didn't have the soup so used Cream of Chicken soup and added some shredded Monteray jack cheese and some sour cream (1/4 cup) and 1/4 tsp of curry. Also added 1/4 cup sour cream to the stuffing. Topped with sharp cheddar. Easy and delicious. Very nice texture. Will definitely make again.
I have been making this for years but I always used cream of chicken soup but added 1/4teaspoon of curry, oil and garlic powders plus 1/4 cup of sour cream and parmesan cheese to the sauce. Easy and delicious casserole.
