Savory Saturday- Turkey (or Chicken) Divan

I think this is a divine recipe. The joke is that I wouldn't touch the stuff at first because it looked odd and I was pregnant. I couldn't even stand certain smells at that point but it tasted divine! We make it out of turkey leftovers every year and the one time we made it with chicken we were not as thrilled. I say this, if you make it with chicken use the dark meat. Our issue was that the Chicken Divan was dry but dark meat is always more moist.

Turkey/Chicken Divan

3 whole chicken breasts/ a few cups of leftover turkey meat
2 packages frozen broccoli (The size depends on the cut of broccoli and how much you like it)
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1 cup grated cheddar (we use cheddar jack because the hubby is not a cheddar fan)
1 tsp lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
Parmesan cheese

Simmer chicken breasts in salted water. (We have always used leftover meat so we have never done this.) Cook broccoli. Mix soup, sour cream, mayo, cheese, and seasonings. Use a 13x9 greased pan. Layer broccoli, chicken/turkey, and parmesan cheese. Cover with sauce. Top with remaining parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.

I really hope you enjoy this as much as we do! This stuff almost never makes it to left overs.
