Chicken Divan

You know, life isn’t always ‘tidy’.  So when a friend is going through a difficult time, I like to take them over a meal.   Chicken Divan  is often the dish I bring.  It’s real comfort food to me.- must be the  creamy sauce (I always make extra).  I often pair it with my Twice the Rice Casserole.   The fruity nutty rice is a nice contrast to the slight curry flavor of the Divan.
