This Chicken and Green Bean Casserole is super easy to make and a great way to get your kids to eat some veggies.
This dish serves six people and takes just over an hour from start to finish.
I had some green beans in the freezer and don’t really enjoy eating them on their own so I figured why not try out a new casserole recipe?
So I dug through my freezer and cupboards and used what I found to create this dish.

I started off by lining the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 inch baking dish with frozen hash brown patties.
I had to break some of the patties in pieces to make them fit.
Then I spread the diced raw chicken and frozen green beans over the hash brown patties.
A mixture of cream of vegetable soup and eggs was poured over everything.
The dish was then topped with crushed Ritz crackers mixed with bacon bits and diced onion.
I covered the green bean chicken casserole with aluminum foil and baked it for about fifty minutes.
I removed the aluminum foil for the final five minutes of baking to brown up the Ritz cracker mixture.
Don’t remove the foil too early or your Ritz crackers will burn.
Once I removed the green bean casserole with chicken from the oven, I allowed it to cool a bit before slicing and serving so that it would hold together better.
This Chicken and Green Bean Casserole is simple and delicious.
The soup and egg mixture keep everything nice and moist and also hold it together.
I really like the added flavour from the bacon and onions in the Ritz cracker mixture.
This is a tasty dinner your whole family will love.
