Slow Cooker Chicken and Green Bean Casserole

20 Jul

My husband went to the store a couple of days ago, and brought home 2 big cans of cream of mushroom soup, 4 cans of green beans, and 2 bags of fried onions as a “suggestion”. I guess it has been a while since I made Green Bean Casserole, and really, it’s just not something I tend to work in to our meal rotation much. So, as I woke up this morning, I had a thought. What if I used the ingredients for Green Bean Casserole and put it over chicken in the slow cooker? I have cooked chicken with cream of mushroom soup before that turned out well, why not add the green beans and onions too? It turned out great, and got rave review from my parents, who are here visiting, and my kids! I doubled the amount of everything to have enough to serve 6. I made mashed potatoes and brown rice to go with it. Only reason I made both was because I didn’t have enough of either to serve everybody, but had plenty with making both! Oh, and the Cheddar Garlic Biscuits were a great addition, too. This was a super easy meal, that came together very nicely.
