"Wonderful flavor. We're always on the look out for low-sodium meals so I was eager to try this. Used left over rotisserie chicken and fresh green beans.  Didn't add any salt, only used 1 tsp low sodium soy sauce and lower sodium chicken stock. My boyfriend is a big fan of Green Bean Casserole so I added some of those French's Onions on top. Served it over rotini.  Really yummy. I was actually surprised it had so much flavor since there aren't any herbs in it.  Definitely gonna make it again"
