Well. this is the famous "1st Dinner" recipe. When I was single, I served this to the guys that I had over for dinner for the first time. They were always impressed and always asked me to make it again. Try it, it works. I serve it with biscuits or bread.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Chicken Divan is no ordinary casserole. We can see why this recipe worked on all of Bonnie's suitors. It was a big hit in the Test Kitchen. We chose to use basil, rosemary, and thyme as our herbs of choice, and it was a pure delight. This Chicken Divan is creamy, cheesy, and very good. We guarantee an empty casserole dish by the end of your meal.
