Green Bean Chicken Casserole Recipe

Green Bean Chicken Casserole Recipe

My husband, who claims to be strictly a meat-and-potatoes man, asked for seconds the first time I threw together this comforting all-in-one meal. My daughter and several guests raved about it, too. It's easy to assemble with cooked chicken, frozen green beans and convenient pantry items. —DeLissa Mingee Warr Acres, Oklahoma

"Wow was this amazing! If you love green bean casserole, you'll love this dish. My husband's only complaint was the green beans still stay a bit crunchy and he'd rather have them mushy, but I loved it!"

"Delicious! Great combination of flavors, a recipe I will definately use again. Also added sliced baby carrots to give a little more color. Also sauted the onions and peppers plus added a soup can full of water as it seemed a little thick. Was definately a hit in our family."

"I cubed and seasoned my chicken and omitted the green pepper and onion, did more green beans though. I really liked it. The family was at odds all picked different things they didn't like about it! Figures!"

"Used cut green beans as I don't like how the french style can get mushy and also used cheddar friend onions instead of plain because I already had them. Overall turned out pretty good!"

"I went ahead and sautéed the onion and peppers the first time I made this. I think it turned out great! Plus it tastes just as good leftover."

"My family loved this recipe! I substitued the cream of mushroom soup for cream of chicken since we're not mushroom eaters. It wasn't exactly a "quick" recipe but definitely one I'll make again when I have time to cook something special."

"I am a HUGE green bean casserole fan. I can easily clear an 8X8 pan of green bean casserole by myself and eat just green bean casserole by itself for a meal. When I saw this recipe I knew I HAD to try it. Just as I suspected it was AWESOME!! It was totally full of flavor from all of the soups; now I almost perfer this over regular green bean casserole and it REALLY is a meal all in one. I also like that it makes two casseroles so you can freeze one for a rainy day. Thank you for this recipe I will be making it again real soon!"
