I’m fairly positive everybody’s mom made some model of Chicken Divan whereas they had been rising up. The recipe originated in a New York City resort and was the restaurant’s signature dish. Over the years it reworked right into a household favourite casserole that was simple to make, fed a crowd and match into most budgets.
Many hen divan recipes use canned condensed soups making them simple to whip up with pantry staples. This model ditches the condensed soup however makes use of only some further substances which are nonetheless staples in most keto pantries. Butter, xanthan gum, and hen inventory substitute the soup when mixed with just a little mayo and bitter cream. The consequence may be very near the identical creamy, flavorful texture achieved with the unique substances.
I used pre-cooked hen breast reduce into cubes for this recipe, however rotisserie hen or cooked hen thighs would work nice as effectively. Pork rinds mixed with two kinds of cheese add a crunchy prime layer with nice texture and many flavors. This casserole might be made prematurely and baked simply earlier than serving. Another make-ahead tip is to cook dinner two pans and freeze one for one more evening. Just defrost and reheat within the oven at 350 levels, lined, for 30 – 40 minutes till heated by way of and bubbly. Turn on the broiler for a minute or two on the finish to crisp up the highest if wanted.
