Chicken Divan

This recipe for Chicken Divan is a delicious family favorite! What is really great is that kids love it also. My daughter called me last week wanting the recipe for her family, so it held a lasting tasty memory for her also. WIN WIN! We raised 5 children so I became a pro at stretching food. This recipe calls for 2 cooked chicken breasts and since you slice them thin it can serve 4-5 people.

Happy Cooking!
