Slow Cooker Chicken Divan
Chicken Divan is one of those old fashioned recipes that is typically made as a casserole and baked in the oven. However, I decided to change things up and do a slow cooker version and let me tell you, it came out fantastic!
To make this recipe super simple I decided to use store-bought pre-grilled chicken strips from (such as Tyson brand). However, you can use cooked chicken breasts and cut them into strips or bite sized chunks.
Instead of combining the noodles in a casserole form I opted to make the chicken divan with chicken and broccoli in a creamy sauce in the slow cooker and then cook the egg noodles on the stove-top and serve the chicken divan over top.
This recipe was a huge hit with my family and one I will make time and time again!

We made this tonight. It wasn’t quite what we were tasting for so I added about 6 ounce of cream cheese to it at the last minute. Mmmmmm.
Lady Heidi says
Everything is better with a little cream cheese added!
I have another recipe with cream cheese..yummy!!! Sounds good to me!!
Could I substitute raw boneless/skinless chicken breasts for the the tyson grilled chicken strips? Does this change the cook time at all?
I’m new to cooking as well as crockpot cooking so any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!
Lady Katie says
Yes, but you would need to cook them first as the Tyson Grilled Chicken Strips are cooked.
Made this tonight. 15 minutes after serving and there’s none left! Easily made gluten free. (Substitute the cream of chicken, noodles, and flour for gluten free versions) I did add some extra spices like fresh cracked pepper, garlic, oregano, chili powder cause we like some heat, and a splash of soy sauce. (Maybe a tablespoon and a half). The consistency was great but I wanted it a little more soupy so I added some beef broth to thin for preference. Oh, I added mushrooms to my bowl cause I always make an excuse to eat mushrooms! This is perfect! Plus, noodles instead of rice is always a bonus for the kids. Thanks for another winner!
I think I’ll try this recipe for our young adult bible study on Tuesday night. I usually feed about 18 people so I will triple it! I’m going to use some of the suggestions above – cream cheese, soy sauce and fresh pepper!!
Martin Blecha says
A tespoon of curry powder really zips the taste!!
Lady Heidi says
Great tip, thanks Martin!
Can I use fresh broccoli instead of frozen?
Emilee @ CrockPotLadies says
Yes that should work fine!
Why precooked chicken & still cooks for hours?
Doesn’t make sense to me.
Crock-Pot Ladies says
Because that is how this recipe is made. If you don’t want to use pre-cooked chicken you can try adapting this recipe using raw chicken. If you try that Connie please come back and let us know how it turned out for you.

Did exactly what it said but its looking painfully dry..also I wish I had of skipped themayo..I thought you wouldn’t taste it but its loud and two of us can’t stand mayo..Its only been cooking an hour…will doctor it up some..Hope it gets better.
Emilee @ CrockPotLadies says
I’m not understanding what’s dry? It’s chicken covered in a creamy sauce, that you mix together and then it needs to cook for at least 4+ hrs, then you serve it over cooked egg noodles. Hopefully it turns out well for you! My family loved it! Enjoy!
