Low Fat Chicken Divan

This is pretty much the same as the Overnight Chicken Divan recipe but made with low fat ingredients.

We like carrots and potatoes, so I’ll use 3 to 4 large carrots, and 4 or more potatoes. Using College Inn chicken broth makes a big difference … the sauce comes out velvety smooth. […]
