  • Ready In

  1. Place the bacon in a skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble, and set aside. Melt the butter in a skillet, and saute the chicken breasts 10 to 12 minutes on each side, until the exterior is golden, the meat is no longer pink, and the juices run clear.
  2. Place the green beans in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook 5 minutes, or until tender.
  3. Preheat the oven broiler. Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  4. Arrange the beans in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Top with the chicken, and cover evenly with the soup. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and bacon, and top with Cheddar cheese.
  5. Broil 10 minutes, or until browned and bubbly.

Pretty good! I made some changes because I didn't have all the ingredients on hand, and happily enough, those changes made it healthier! First, I didn't have any bacon so I fried some shaved, ...

We really liked this recipe, but made it with some modifications. Supermarkets here don't carry cream of cheddar soup and Canned soup's too salty for us anyway, so I made a white sauce and added...

I gotta say, I didn't love this recipe. It was just too much, but not enough flavor. I sauteed the chicken with garlic and pepper, which helped, but the cheddar cheese soup was just too bland. I...

This was very good. I did change this up just a little bit. I didn't crumble the bacon, instead cut in half and placed on top of the chicken. I also added just a little bit of onion to the gr...

I added brown rice which turned this into a complete meal in one casserole. I pre-cooked the brown rice and made it into a bottom layer. My other changes were cutting the chicken into serving s...

Very tasty...However, next time (and there will be a next time!) I will add an extra can of soup and some milk so it is creamier. It was quite good tho!

each of the ingredients appeals to me, but when combined, it's not really that appetizing, once you take a bite. Family liked it somewhat. Don't think I'll make it again.
