Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • Place the green beans in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook 5 minutes, or until tender.

  • Preheat the oven broiler. Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.

  • 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.

  • Broil 10 minutes, or until browned and bubbly.

To Make Ahead

Assemble as above, only don't broil. Cover and refrigerate until 35 minutes before serving. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Remove cover from dish and bake in preheated oven until heated through, approximately 30 minutes. Then place under broiler for just a few minutes to lightly brown the top.
