Green Bean Chicken Casserole

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

    Made this last night (we ate one and froze one), it was very tasty! I’ll be trying this again for sure. I wish I had cooked them both!

    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!
