Chicken Divan Separated

A simple chicken casserole that we all enjoy is Chicken Divan. However, yesterday I didn't feel like combining everything into a casserole, so I didn't. And it still turned out very well. Basically you need chicken, broccoli, a white sauce, and Parmesan cheese. Here are the chicken breasts after they've been cooked in a little olive oil, topped with a tablespoon of white sauce (see below), sprinkled with Parmesan cheese and broiled until golden. Unfortunately, it looks liked they're topped with a slice of Mozarella cheese, so some people were VERY disappointed when they bit into it and didn't taste cheese. So, next time we'll try added some of that ingredient as well.
We served the broccoli and couscous on the side. This was an easy meal that was on the table less than 30 minutes after I finally got home from church.
Note: I made one cup of white sauce using 2 tablespoons each butter and flour, 3/4 cup chicken broth and 1/4 cup cream. Then I stirred a couple of tablespoons of Parmesan cheese, along with salt and pepper and dry mustard to taste. You could use whatever you wanted. A lot of recipes include curry powder.
