French Fried Onion Chicken with Green Beans Casserole

So, it all started when I had a craving for the infamous "Green Bean Casserole!" LOL  I went searching through my pantry and I had all the makings......except the green beans......so I sent my husband to the store for those ;)  I have to tell you, this TOTALLY satisfied my craving!!!!  My only complaint is I wish I had made more of it!!!  LOL  So, I'm "expanding" the recipe below so that you have more yummy goodness when you make yours!

Sometimes not having a plan is a good thing......and this week, my "no plan" has been a very good thing!  3 yummy dishes have come out of it!

I hope you enjoy this recipe and it brings back good "holiday" memories for you!!!

French Fried Onion Chicken with Green Beans Casserole

Ingredients:
2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 cans condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 cup Milk
2 tsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 big can French Fried Onions, divided (I think it's the 6 oz. size, but I'm not sure!)
3-4 big handfuls of fresh green beans (enough for your family)

Directions:
In the bottom of your slow cooker insert, place the chicken.

Sprinkle half of your French Fried Onions over the top of your chicken.

Mix together the soup, milk, soy sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

Pour it over the chicken.

Sprinkle the remaining French Fried Onions on top.

Cook on LOW for 6-7 hours or on HIGH for 3-4 hours.
It will look something like this!

1 hour before serving, add your Green Beans on top.

When your green beans are ready, you are ready to eat!
Enjoy!

  6. Busy Mom: Do you have a suggestion for substituting the fried onions? I'm on WW and trying to lose weight and follow a healthy diet. I know I could substitute the milk and soup, but I don't know how to replace the fried onion rings! Thank you for any and all suggestions!!! =] charlotte from OC, Ca

  7. thanks for this idea! I've made chicken with mushroom soup & cream of chicken before and have added a packet of italian seasoning or a pkt of ranch seasoning, but never thought of doing a green bean casserole w/chicken, it was very good and 2 of my step-kids were here this weekend and they both tried it and liked it, which was shocking! love this site! great recipes/ideas, I love using my crock pot!

  8. What about baking some onions with some Pam and a sprinkling of bread crumbs and using those?

  9. This was delicious! I used 3 whole frozen chicken breasts instead of cutting them up. I also omitted the salt and didn't use a whole can of the fried onions. I served over rice. So good! Thanks for the recipe!

  10. Could you use frozen or canned green beans? Has anyone tried this? I'm new to the whole slow cooker scene :)

  11. I wouldn't use frozen in this particular recipe unless you thaw them first, in which case would be fine. And yes, you can use canned, they just won't taste quite as good ;)

  12. I used frozen when I made it last. They did take awhile to cook. I didn't think to thaw them first...duh! I will do that next time b/c I ALWAYS have frozen green beans in the house.

  13. Kristy.....yes, thawing them first might be a good idea ;)

  20. I love cooking on my slow cooker. It is a great way to make an easy healthy recipe. Cooking at home is definitely the healthy way to cook and a great way to reduce calories. And this recipe looks delicious. I have been eating healthy and cutting calories with the help of my diet tracker it allows me to plan meals in advance and keep track of calories.

  21. Even though this recipe is pretty healthy I used low calorie mushroom soup to reduce calorie. Enjoy.
