Chicken and Green Bean Casserole - a delicious casserole filled with green beans, chicken, cream cheese, and chicken broth, topped with stuffing mix!! A staple at holiday gatherings!

Happy Wednesday all! October has officially begun and I couldn’t be more happy about it! Among many things, fall for me means so many fun gatherings with Family and Friends. I don’t know how you guys do it, but we pretty much have the holiday parties down to a science. We meet in early October to talk about what we’re planning for Halloween. At our Halloween party, we talk about what we’re doing for Thanksgiving. And at Thanksgiving, we make assignments for the different activities we have planned for December. Its always so exciting, and goes by much quicker than any of us would like. My assignments usually revolve around cookies or desserts and I don’t complain one bit!

For any of you that might have the “Green Beans” or maybe the “Casserole” assignment, I have just the recipe for you! Green Bean Casserole is a staple at most family gatherings, am I right? Well, here is a great recipe for you to serve at your upcoming Holiday shin digs. It was very simple to put together. And you can never go wrong with topping a casserole with stuffing mix 🙂

This looks amazing. Does it have to be refrigerator before cooking or is that just optional?

    Brittany

      Mai

      That’s What im wondering

        Kristyn Merkley

        Maybe not the whole 24 hours, but it does help to thicken it up. I haven’t tried any less time, but I would at least over night. Hope that helps!

    Lil' Luna

    You’re too sweet!! Thank you so much for letting me know!!

Sally

How long does it need to be refrigerated before cooking

    Lil' Luna

    It’s up to 24 hours, so you can make it the night before and cook for dinner the next night or even make the morning of. 24 hours is just a suggestion. Thanks so much and hope you like!!

Susie

Does it need to be refrigerated? Why just wondering. I didn’t see an answer for that.

I’m looking to make some quick meals for my husband while I’m away for a week. Can this be cooked then frozen?

Looks really good 🙂

    Lil' Luna

    I would keep it in the fridge, after it’s been cooked or even before cooking it. I have not put it in the freezer, but I would make it, then put it in the freezer, before cooking, then when ready, he could bake it. Hope that helps & hope he likes it!
