I love me some chicken divan. Oh wee baby how I do. But it feels like it takes me forever to make. And the kitchen ends up in a tornado mess. And it really isn't that healthy for you. But that's why it is a birthday and special occasion kind of dinner, right? So on my quest of making life easier while trying to reach our goals I decided to try a crock pot, freezer friendly version of chicken divan... and it's a one pot meal. Those are pretty handy to have around too. So cozy up to a creamy, steamy bowl of goodness. Or serve it on a plate with a salad if you're fancy like that.
