We love them as is. Even those who hate beans or veggies love these! Super quick, too. My aunt made these once for Christmas dinner, and they were a huge hit. I bring them everywhere.

Deluxe Garden Green Beans Haiku: "We DO love garlic just not a tablespoon's worth. Killed the beans for us." Love garlic love butter love green beans - really what's not to love about this recipe? Oh and did i mention it's super easy?? Unfortunately 1/2 lb. green beans to 1 TB of garlic was just too much garlic for us. Will definitely make this again and again w/ garlic reduced!

I liked these beans especially for the ease of prep. I don't normally use the microwave to cook my veggies or any food for that matter but I wanted to follow the recipe exactly. Keep in mind microwaves will vary so I think 4 minutes would be perfect next time in my 1000W microwave. The servings size is a little on the small size so I made 3/4 lb instead of 1/2. I kept the chicken granules the same though and it turned out much too salty for my tastes. This could just be the brand I used (Knorr) but next time I will use about half the stated amount and also use unsalted butter. I also used less garlic than called for since the garlic is raw and therefore quite potent. I will definitely make these again with the minor tweaks. Even though they were too salty I ended up eating 4 servings (SHHHH they were SMALL servings!) Thank you Chelsey for the quick and tasty recipe!

4.5 I love garlic so this was great!!! Would halve the amount of chicken granules to cut down on the salt.

I diced a fresh garlic clove but otherwise followed this basic recipe. Fresh tasting quick and easy - what's not to love?

Use only half the chicken broth. Too thin with 2 cups even after cooking time.
