Easy Turkey Broccoli and Rice Divan Recipe

Turkey is a year-round happening at our home. We love it for sandwiches and at times I transform it into a round two meal like this Turkey Divan. Chicken Divan is a dish I enjoy making and this recipe is a tasty way to use holiday leftovers in an unexpected way. To make Turkey Broccoli Rice Divan with leftover turkey:

  • Turkey – Roughly chopped roasted turkey or rotisserie chicken.
  • Rice – Cooked yellow rice.
  • Soup – One can cream of chicken with herbs soup or classic cream of chicken and one can broccoli cheese soup.
  • Milk – Evaporated milk.
  • Mix-ins – Mayonnaise, diced pimentos, green onions and steamed broccoli florets.
  • Seasonings – Garlic salt, onion powder and curry powder. You can adjust the curry powder to your taste.
  • Cheese – Shredded sharp cheddar cheese.
  • Topping – Panko breadcrumbs and melted butter.

How to Make the Best Turkey Broccoli Rice Divan Recipe

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. On busy days, this make ahead one-dish-meal is sure to satisfy.

  • Ingredients you’ll need to make homemade Turkey Broccoli Rice Divan: Chopped leftover turkey (OR chicken), 3 cups cooled saffron or yellow rice, one can cream of chicken and herbs soup, one can cream of broccoli soup, evaporated milk, mayonnaise, pimentos, broccoli florets, garlic salt, onion powder, curry powder, green onions, shredded cheddar cheese, panko breadcrumbs and melted butter.
  • Kitchen tools you’ll need: One large bowl, one small bowl, whisk, cheese grater, measuring cups and spoons, sharp knife and cutting board and one 13 x 9 inch baking dish.
  • I don’t cook often with canned soups but they work like a charm in this recipe. You can use regular cream of chicken soup if you’re unable to find the kind seasoned with herbs. You could use two cans and omit the broccoli soup. You can also use broccoli cheese soup.
  • You can adapt this recipe using another flavor of cheese than cheddar.
  • You can also use cooked chicken in place of turkey with no other adjustments needed.
  • For this casserole, I recommend that you start with 1/2 teaspoon of curry powder then taste and adjust to your personal taste.
  • You can bake this recipe in a 13 x 9 inch casserole dish or 6 eight ounce ramekins. When baked in individual serving baking dishes the presentation is so pretty.
  • Store Turkey Broccoli Rice Divan chilled in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in single servings in the microwave.

  1. 5 stars
    The actual recipe does not mention the broccoli! I had it in the casserole pan and got to the ‘top with panko” step when I realized it was still sitting waiting to be incorporated! Luckily I was able to sprinkle it around and push it into the top layer of cheese, smoothing it over before adding the panko crust. It was still delish! Also, my store was lacking the soups as described so I used one can of cream of chicken and one can of cheddar cheese soup….family loved it. And it makes a lot— would be a great meal prep food for next day’s lunches!

    1. Hi Lisa, the broccoli is mentioned to be added just before the cheese, I’m not sure why you didn’t see it? Anyway, it sounds like you ended with a great dish, thanks so much!

  2. Thank you for posting this just for me Melissa. I hope you don’t mind if I use my leftover chicken, I’ve been wondering what I was going to do with it. Love the flavor combo and anytime I can incorporate a veggie, I’m in. You are just too creative!
