Reviews for Green Bean Chicken Casserole
"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."
"Great rounded meal with meat and veggies, my kids love it! I make 1/2 and freeze the other 1/2 for a quick meal later!"
"This is one of my favorites! I've been making it (and sharing it) regularly since I clipped it from quick Cooking Magazine in 2001. It's a keeper!"
"My husband and I thought this recipe was salty, but without a lot of flavor. It was okay, but I don't think I would make it again."
"To me it tasted to salty and had an over powering onion taste.. I dont think i would make it again..."
"I slightly adjusted the recipe by using sauteed onion and green pepper, and my husband loved it. he liked it even more the second night when we were having it as leftovers - quote "mmm it's a keeper!""
