Actress Sherri Shepherd, winner of a Daytime Emmy for
The View and costar of the upcoming Lifetime movie
Abducted: The Carlina White Story, whips up this dish for movie nights with friends.
My girlfriends and I are always so busy, with the demands of kids, husbands, and life in general, that we decided to set aside a regular girls’ night. We pull the couch away from the wall, grab all available chairs and some wine, and watch a movie. If someone brings tissues, I know we’ll be watching The Notebook
. For a great night of laughter, My Cousin Vinny
will do just fine.
We end the evening with a delicious dinner. I like to make a nice, simple chicken divan. My friends pitch in; cooking together is one way we bond.
I also sometimes get into the kitchen and make this dish for my husband, Lamar, and my son, Jeffrey, who is 7. I like to remind them: Mama can throw down, too.
