This is an easy to prepare, make-ahead-if-you-wish dish. All you need for accompaniment is mashed or baked potatoes, or rice. Great for company!

Recipe Ingredients

  • ½ pound bacon
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 20 ounces fresh green beans, washed and trimmed
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of Cheddar cheese soup
  • 1 pinch ground cayenne pepper
  • ½ cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place the bacon in a skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble, and set aside. Melt the butter in a skillet, and saute the chicken breasts 10 to 12 minutes on each side, until the exterior is golden, the meat is no longer pink, and the juices run clear.
  2. 2 Place the green beans in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook 5 minutes, or until tender.
  3. 3 Preheat the oven broiler. Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  4. 4 Arrange the beans in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Top with the chicken, and cover evenly with the soup. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and bacon, and top with Cheddar cheese.
  5. 5 Broil 10 minutes, or until browned and bubbly.

Chef's Notes

Assemble as above, only don't broil. Cover and refrigerate until 35 minutes before serving. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Remove cover from dish and bake in preheated oven until heated through, approximately 30 minutes. Then place under broiler for just a few minutes to lightly brown the top.


  1. I added brown rice which turned this into a complete meal in one casserole. I pre-cooked the brown rice and made it into a bottom layer. My other changes were cutting the chicken into serving size portions for each family member then just laying 2-3 strips of that pre-cooked bacon over each one. I decided - Read more ...
  2. I gotta say I didn't love this recipe. It was just too much but not enough flavor. I sauteed the chicken with garlic and pepper which helped but the cheddar cheese soup was just too bland. I think cream of mushroom would be better. Also I don't think the breadcrumbs were all that necessary. They - Read more ...
  3. This was surprisingly good even though I made some changes (mistakes?). I didn't have cheddar cheese soup so I heated up some cream of mushroom in the same pan I used to brown the chicken and melted in some of the cheddar cheese. I also misread the recipe and layered the cheese then the bread - Read more ...
  4. Very tasty...However next time (and there will be a next time!) I will add an extra can of soup and some milk so it is creamier. It was quite good tho!
  5. We really liked this recipe but made it with some modifications. Supermarkets here don't carry cream of cheddar soup and Canned soup's too salty for us anyway so I made a white sauce and added some good New York State cheddar to it to create my cheese sauce. I added additional water to the sauce - Read more ...
  6. This was very good. I did change this up just a little bit. I didn't crumble the bacon instead cut in half and placed on top of the chicken. I also added just a little bit of onion to the green beans while cooking. Hubby loves cheese and thought this was good. I do agree - Read more ...
  7. I didnt care much for this dish. My husband loves green beans and cheesy food but he thought it was just ok. I wont make this again. Too much prep time for the end result. My breadcrumbs didnt get soggy but the whole thing just didnt live up to my expectations.
  8. Pretty good! I made some changes because I didn't have all the ingredients on hand, and happily enough, those changes made it healthier! First, I didn't have any bacon so I fried some shaved, diced ham and that was just like bacon except a lot less fattening. Also, I used a mix of frozen green - Read more ...
  9. okay i tried this recipe and boy did i like it... my family did as well... a homemade cheese sauce is good w/ it...
