A bit of history about this dish: This dish was originally made with chicken, broccoli, and a classic bechamel sauce made with Gruyere cheese, and it was named after the restaurant it was created in, Divan Parisian. It has been served as their signature dish, both being extremely tasty and still simple to produce. It’s hard to imagine that this classic casserole was such a popular dish back in its day, no longer do we see these tasty, full, and basic casseroles served in restaurants. It has been a favorite family since I don’t know when and will continue to be a part of our family traditions.
