This is a third generation recipe and one that is about as simple as it gets. French-style green beans are topped with Chicken breasts, a creamy soup mixture, and a sprinkling of parmesan cheese and baked until bubbly. Best served over mashed potatoes or rice.

This was soooo good! I'll give it 4 stars though simply because I changed quite a few things (like everyone else!). I used about 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/4 cup lite mayo. Used cream of mushroom soup instead and frozen french cut green beans. I browned the chicken with garlic salt and pepper until almost completely cooked through. Also added 1/2 cup or so of shredded monterrey jack into the soup mixture. Served it with angel hair pasta. We thought this was great comfort food will definitely make again! Read More

Made this with Miracle Whip instead of mayo but otherwise followed the recipe; served over buttered egg noodles. Family response: eh. I'm not throwing this one out completely but will save it for when I don't have ingredients for anything else. I'd recommend substituting sour cream or plain yogurt for part of the mayo and adding some extra parmesan on top to make a crispy topping. Read More

Made this for dinner tonight...was a little skeptical...but my husband loved it. He said it was like something you would get in a fine italian restuarant. He is right! Delicious served over angel hair pasta!!! Will add to my favorites! I would like to add that if you have picky eaters combine the soup mayo and garlic cheese and mix....brown the chicken and cook until almost cooked...then place chicken in dish and cover with soup mixture...then serve green beans (personal favorite for this diah if made this way) on the side. I find that even picky eaters will try it this way and end up saying...I think I would like this with the beans in it too! Read More

Great recipe. Easy too. Tastes even better the next day. The first time I made this it came out watery and the chicken was not done. The second time I cut the chicken into smaller pieces before browning added the parmesan to the soup mixture and sprinkled a little more over the top. I also increased my oven temperature. Yummy!

This was really good!! The sauce is awesome! I didn't have the time to make this into a casserole so I put it in the slow cooker. I put the chicken in the bottom topped the chicken with the green beans. Then I added the wet ingredients to the top. I cooked the whole thing on high for about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. The chicken was really moist and not dried out. My kids loved this. I was happy because they even ate the green beans! I would for sure make this one again. Read More

Very goood! After having it a few times we decided to use cream of mushroom soup instead. It was wonderful. We also use frozen beans instead of canned. I found that you need to brown the chicken til it is almost cooked or it will take alot longer in the oven. This is one of my husbands favorite dishes now. Read More

Excellent. I used chicken tenders instead of breasts. Since other people said it came out soupy I drained the greenbeans & did not cover it while it was baking & I had no problems. Looked great & tasted even better. I also add mushrooms when I make this. Read More

I made this using fresh french green beans and it turned out great. It was very simple and quick to prepare and it makes a great hearty meal. My husband and young daughter also loved it. They were fighting over the leftovers the next day! Read More

My husband is tired of eating chicken from me trying to diet. Even he liked it very much. Very Good! I used light Mayo and did not put over mash potatoes but the next time for sure over potatoes! oops I forgot the garlic powder. Bet that makes it even better! A must try... I had to change this to 5 star. I want this at least once every other week! Read More
