Chicken Divan is a great tasting recipe that is perfect for freezer cooking! I suggest making two each time. One to eat and the other to freeze. We LOVE this tasty recipe and I love that it is a complete meal with the vegetable included! I like to serve it with a salad and homemade garlic bread. Here is the recipe for the Master Recipe for the Roast Chicken to be used with this recipe. You can also cook your whole chicken in your crockpot OR if you want you can purchase a store bought Rotisserie chicken or even use chicken breasts! The choice is yours.
Be sure that you invest in a good quality slow cooker. Our favorite is this programmable cook and carry 6qt oval slow cooker. A great way to save money is to purchase your meat in bulk from ZayconFresh.
