Creamy Mushroom Chicken with Rice and Green Beans

Another good one for healthy honeys everywhere.  Your hungry hubby will be satisfied, and you won't feel guilty!  This is healthy (-ish) lightened-up comfort food that is perfect for those who love the traditional Thanksgiving Green Bean Casserole.  (We LOVE GBC!!)
LGTG (looks gross, tastes great), I know.

The 5 Ingredients:
  • Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast (I just used 1 for the hubby)
  • 98% Fat-Free Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • Canned Green Beans (I used 2)
  • Water, 1/2 cup
  • Brown Rice

Start by browning the chicken in a PAM-lined skillet on medium-high heat.
This was a super-thick breast, so it took me about 15 minutes to get it almost-cooked.

Remove the chicken from the skillet, and add in the can of soup plus 1/2 cup of water.  Stir.  
Once it's mixed, add in the drained green beans.
Let it simmer for about 10 minutes, and then add the chicken back to the pan.
Smother the chicken in the mixture.  Now ya see it.... ya don't!  ;)  Continue cooking until the chicken is done.
Dump in the cooked rice, stir, and serve!

I don't think this dish needs another vegetable, but we had some asparagus spears that were almost past their range of eatability, so I roasted some to go with this meal.  I made myself a mixed salad to up the health-factor.  :)

  1. Oh yum! I make chicken with cream of mushroom quite frequently but I never thought to add green beans!!! My man loves this kind of food- I'll definitely be recreating your dinner : )

  2. I really love that you post your portion next to your hubby's-it helps remind me that I don't need to half the meal with him! It really is all about the portions! And don't forget the green stuff :)
