Divan is a beloved rice casserole that's been rotating through Southern kitchens for eons. This Turkey Broccoli Rice Divan can be made with either turkey or chicken. It's a fabulous way to transform leftovers during the holidays into a round 2 meal. The crunchy topping makes this a one-dish meal the family is certain to love.
Turkey Broccoli and Rice Divan
What Gives Turkey Divan its Distinctive Flavor?
As with any "divan" it's the curry powder that gives the unique flavor profile. Curry is a blend of 10 or more different spices, and offers a complex combination of flavors. Generally speaking, the more red the curry powder the more heat you'll experience. For this casserole, I recommend that you start with ½ teaspoon then adjust to your personal taste. When baked in individual casseroles, I think the presentation is so pretty. On busy days, this make ahead one-dish-meal is sure to satisfy.
