Chicken Green Bean Casserole in the #SlowCooker #Crockpot #Recipe

Honestly, this recipe for chicken green bean casserole received mixed reviews from my family.  Those of us who liked it really liked it.  Those who didn’t like it cited a single ingredient that “ruined” it, but, of course, the ingredient was different for each of them.  *Sigh*

I was inspired by a friend’s recipe.

I was inspired to try this recipe when a dear friend gave me a recipe for her Green Bean Casserole.  She was very proud that she added baked chicken breasts to it making it more of a meal rather than a side dish.  I loved the idea!  However, you have probably figured out that I don’t do difficult nor time consuming recipes.

I mean, Ain’t nobody got time for that!

I decided to make the entire thing in the slow cooker.  Even I can manage that!

Chicken & Green Bean Casserole in the Slow Cooker

Chicken & Green Bean Casserole in the Slow Cooker


  • 1/2 Cup of Water (could use a little less)
  • 6 Large Frozen Chicken Breasts
  • 2 - 10 oz Bags of Frozen Green Beans (frozen will get less mushy than canned)
  • 2/3 Cup of Frozen Chopped Onions & Bell Peppers
  • 2 Cans Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • -At The End-
  • 1 Cup Shredded Cheese (I use a Mexican blend because I always have that on hand)
  • 1 - 2.8 oz Container of Crispy Onions


  • Place frozen chicken breasts on the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • Layer frozen green beans, onions, and bell peppers next.
  • Pour Cream of Mushroom Soups (both cans) on top... spreading it over everything
  • Pour the water over the soups.
  • Cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-8 hours adjusting times for your appliance.
  • About 15-30 minutes before serving, Add Cheese and stir well to incorporate everything together.
  • Use a wooden spoon to break the chicken breasts or remove them, chop, and put them back.
  • Once you have added the cheese, chopped the chicken, and mixed it all thoroughly, SPRINKLE the CRISPY ONIONS. Best part! Am I right?
  • For crunchier crispy onions, serve right away.
