This recipe is very good served over pasta or rice. I have also used turkey instead of chicken so bear that in mind when you want to use up leftover turkey.

This is really easy & really yummy! I do always add a couple of tsp of curry powder & put some bread crumbs on top for texture. I didn't notice any floury taste when I forgot to add curry one time, but it definitely wasn't as good.

I made this last night with some leftover BBQ chicken and it was really good. The sauce tasted like it had a little too much flour in next time I will use a tablespoon less. I added curry power to combat the flour taste and put paprika on top. It's nice to have a chicken divan recipe that doesn't rely on a can of soup. Thanks.

AMAZING! Well, I didnt follow the recipe from A to Z.. I used it as a base. The only difference I did was add some chopped green scallions and some chopped garlic to the sauce mixture. I totally agree with what the other guy said about can of soups. I really loved the flavor of this sauce, I could just drink it on its own.. well maybe not but it really is yummy. Oh, and I used Riesling for the wine. Mmmhm YUM-O! P.S I gave it a 4 because i added the garlic and scallions myself.
