With the weather FINALLY turning chilly tomorrow in Charleston. I miss being able to eat this. It’s one of my fave recipes. I absolutely love comfort foods. Chicken Divan is it for me. It’s a meal in a casserole dish. Now with my lack of being able to enjoy cheese of sour cream, I still enjoy making it for friends. I will say, it is most probably not heart healthy or low calorie. However, it sure is yummy. Check it out and try it. I’d love to hear how you enjoy it.
