This time of year, we can all use some time saving tips.  Enter: this recipe for Chicken Divan.  It can be made ahead of time and frozen to pull out for those late nights of wrapping Christmas presents, or it can be whipped up on the spot and enjoyed immediately.  It would also be great to have on hand for when guests arrive later in the evening and want some dinner- it only needs to bake in the oven for 15 minutes!  Nothing like it for a warm, satisfying, and easy meal.
