I’m pretty sure everyone’s mother made some version of Chicken Divan while they were growing up. The recipe originated in a New York City hotel and was the restaurant’s signature dish. Over the years it transformed into a family favorite casserole that was easy to make, fed a crowd and fit into most budgets.
Many chicken divan recipes use canned condensed soups making them easy to whip up with pantry staples. This version ditches the condensed soup but uses only a few extra ingredients that are still staples in most keto pantries. Butter, xanthan gum, and chicken stock replace the soup when combined with a little mayo and sour cream. The result is very close to the same creamy, flavorful texture achieved with the original ingredients.
I used pre-cooked chicken breast cut into cubes for this recipe, but rotisserie chicken or cooked chicken thighs would work great as well. Pork rinds combined with two types of cheese add a crunchy top layer with great texture and lots of flavors. This casserole can be made in advance and baked just before serving. Another make-ahead tip is to cook two pans and freeze one for another night. Just defrost and reheat in the oven at 350 degrees, covered, for 30 – 40 minutes until heated through and bubbly. Turn on the broiler for a minute or two at the end to crisp up the top if needed.
