Green beans, chicken, herbs, a creamy sauce, and mashed potatoes are the foundation of this variation of a classic comfort food. I have made this my wife and for her family and all have enjoyed it.

This was a unique recipe for sure! I loved the shredded chicken idea. The flavour was a little bland so I tripled the garlic and added salt. It was quite yummy and everyone liked it. I would have given 3.5 stars if it let me. Oh even though prep is said to 15 mins it was much longer than that when you consider boiling/mashing the potatoes and shredding the cooked chicken.

It didn t turn out well. The flavors didn t seem go together and it took more steps than it should have. I would have nixed the green chilies and mixed the chicken soup and milk but n the skillet with the rest of the ingredients at the end of cooking time. I rate it a 2 because the kids ate it.

This recipe was warm and cozy. Def made it in November.:) I added corn with the green beans. I used all dry spices. When I picked up Parmesan cheese at the store I noticed a new salad blend that had Asiago. Spoiler alert!! That was excellent. Planning on using the leftovers for work this week. Read More

Quite tasty, although there was a fair amount of prep. I took note of reviewers comments about it being bland and seasoned each component as I went along. To make it easier and save a few dirty dishes next time, I’ll just combine the veggies, chicken, and gravy and top with the potatoes. The whole family really liked it! Read More

A very good way to use left over mashed potatoes and other vegetables! I put a bay leaf in with the chicken breasts while I boiled them for some additional flavor I also used twice the recommended cloves of garlic. Since the potatoes were cold in the refrigerator I heated the potatoes up with a little milk to ensure that they would be hot throughout instead of burnt on the outside and cold inside. I left out the beans and put in some left over corn. I doubled the recipe and baked in a 9x13 baking pan for about 30 minutes. Will probably use this recipe in the fall with left over turkey as well.

surprisingly good! knocked off a star because I followed modifications in the reviews. took much longer because I had to boil chicken and make mashed potatoes. would be good if you had leftovers to use. Used extra clove of garlic, and salt and pepper to the chicken mixture. I didn't measure the herbs I probably put more than the recipe called for. Also didn't bother heating the cream of chicken first and just mixed it into the pan before layering it in the casserole. Didn't have milk and was afraid of it being bland so used 2 cans of cream of chicken which might have been too much for only 1 can of green beans. I think the ratio would work with 1 can cream of chicken per 1 lb chicken breast per 1 can of green beans. Read More

This was fantastic! I used instant red potatoes and added a little seasoning salt (never cook without it). Great flavor! Will definitely make this again and again! Read More
