Simple weekday casseroles like this Chicken Divan that combine protein AND vegetables is always a winner!

The other night we were out doing some late night grocery shopping.

The kids were on Christmas break from school and our strict bed times were slacking.

We decided to run to our favorite {and only} warehouse stores to get milk and a few other items.

It was just after 8:00 pm and they were going to be closing soon.

On our way out, they checked our receipt and then handed us a rotisserie chicken.

They informed us that they had made too many and were passing them out as they couldn’t put them out again the next day.

So we went home with a free rotisserie chicken and no idea what to do with it.

Until I remembered that I’ve been wanting to photograph my Chicken Divan recipe!

And so here we are!

My tasty Rotisserie chicken turned into multiple meals, one of which is this Chicken Divan.

However, don’t hesitate to use your leftover Turkey in this recipe!

This Chicken Divan is a fantastic way to use up some of your leftover Turkey and it makes a great freezer casserole!

Make one for you now and one for the freezer and you’ll already have dinner ready to go on one of those crazy weeknights when the last thing you want to do is think about dinner!

Knowing that my husband isn’t a fan of broccoli, I knew I’d need to make this when we at with my In-laws.

Living only a mile away, and them always having an open door policy, I showed up at my in-laws house one day, asked my mother-in-law if I could steal her kitchen for a bit and if they didn’t mind if I made dinner that night.

She gladly agreed to let me attack her kitchen and ran off to be grandma for a while.

And a little while later we had these Leftover Mashed Potato Rolls and this Chicken Divan casserole waiting for us on the table.

And would you believe the men ate the casserole, even with the broccoli in it?

A small miracle of sorts I say.
