Chicken and Green Beans

This Chicken and Green Beans dish is another quick and easy meal!

If you have teriyaki sauce on hand, it will be even easier, but this recipe requires just a few basic ingredients, and it was very tasty.  Everyone in the family enjoyed it!

  • 2 1/2 c green beans trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces
