Chicken and Cream Beans in Skillet easy dinner recipe ready in 30 minutes

This dish is rather versatile and that’s what I love about it. If you don’t like green beans or others in your family don’t care for green beans, it’s so easy to substitute them for something else. The green beans may be substituted for asparagus, broccoli or even mushrooms. A combination of green beans and sautéed mushrooms are wonderful as well.


I have a serious love relationship with mushrooms, we often add mushroom to this mix. And those of you that enjoy mushrooms, are you visualizing the mushrooms in every bite, what a treat! Speaking of mushrooms, have you tried the chicken and mushroom casserole? Or the mushrooms and brie canapes? Or the easy flatbread. See what I’ve done now, gone off into mushroom heaven and totally sidetracked from the recipe at hand. It’s amazing the kind of effect they have on people, haha.

Ingredients Needed for Green Bean Chicken Skillet

How to make Chicken and Green Beans in Skillet

When cooking the green beans, cook them to desired tenderness. We like ours really tender in this recipe so I cook the green beans until they are easily pierced. If you don’t like your green beans as tender, you can cook them less and they will work wonderfully.

We have two boys playing on a basketball team for their school this year. The basketball season has officially started. We are usually so busy during the week with their sports. Going from one practice to another or traveling to the different school for away games. There is just something about spending the time as a family and supporting each other that we love so much.

During these busy evenings, I just don’t have time to spend a ton of time in the kitchen and make fancy meals. It’s meals like this and easy one pan pasta or salmon that are our go-to meals. They are so wonderful to enjoy and yet so simple and easy to make. The family is happy and filled and mama’s heart is full that everyone is fed.

Chicken Skillet Recipe with Green Beans and Tomatoes

Note: If you want your chicken really tender, once chicken is fully cooked, turn heat down to low and let it continue cooking covered until chicken becomes tender (about 10 minutes). This is optional.
