Asparagus Chicken Divan

I first came across this recipe at a restaurant while living in New York City many years ago. This makes a delectable dish for lunch or dinner served with a simple tossed salad. —Jeanne Koelsch, San Rafael, California

    This recipe is absolutely delicious. I used canned chicken chunks as that is what I had on hand and it had great flavor. I would only suggest cutting the asparagus in half for easier serving. It's definitely a keeper.

    This really turned out nice and my 11 year old ate the asparagus!

    I think this recipe needs to be reviewed and quickly- the other lady is right- you'all have left out some major facts!

    This recipe has whipping cream and mayonnaise but it doesn't tell me when to mix or with what to mix it with! Could you tell me when to mix it in with the ingredients. This sounds like a real good recipe.Thank youBeverly Verrier
