Italian Green Beans and Chicken Bake!


I’m always on the look-out for family friendly, quick and easy recipes to add to our monthly menu rotation. I have had this recipe pinned on Pinterest for quite some time now, and finally got around to making it! It was SUPER easy to throw together and my kids and my husband loved it. The chicken was so tender and everything had great flavor!  Plus, I love that it’s basically an all inclusive meal!  It was deemed a “keeper” for us!

NOTE:  To lighten this up, use Kraft Fat Free Zesty Italian Salad Dressing instead of the butter and dressing mix.  My family actually likes it better this way!

  1. I made a version of this tonight…tried to make it more paleo by substituting the potatoes for yams instead. I totally forgot to put the Italian Dressing on. 🙁 Bummer!! However, it was still very good. I have some regular Italian Dressing that we used as a condiment…and it was fantastic. I’m looking forward to making it again and hopefully not forgetting the seasoning. 😉

      Glad you enjoyed it!! I will have to try it with yams because I LOVE them! Great substitution idea 🙂 I’m wondering, too, if I used bottled Italian dressing instead of the butter if that would keep it moist but cut calories.

  2. This looks really good! Will be trying it! TFS

  3. I’m glad to have found someone who tried this out! I’ve seen it everywhere and wondered if it worked out okay. And I love the idea of trying it with sweet potatoes! Thanks for linking it up with us at LWSL this week!

  4. Looks great! Will be trying it. TFS
