Chicken Divan is a classic, chicken casserole where broccoli, chicken, and mushrooms are baked in a creamy sauce with sherry, Worcestershire sauce, and a touch of nutmeg. This is an old school, old fashioned family recipe that freezes well, reheats well, and is very easy to make.
Blanche the broccoli: add to boiling water for 1 minute, then move to an ice water bath to cool quickly. Drain and set aside.
In a frying pan over high heat, brown the mushrooms in the 2 Tbsp butter until browned. Set aside..
In a saucepan, make a white sauce: Melt the butter, add the flour, and cook the flour 1-2 minutes. Whisk in the milk and heat, stirring, until thickened. Add the soup, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, and nutmeg. Mix well. Add sherry and cream.
Place broccoli in a 13×9 baking dish, top with the chicken and mushrooms. Cover with the sauce. Dust the top with breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese. Bake at 400°F for 30 minutes.
