Chicken & Green Bean Casserole

Picture this: you take a perfectly cooked chicken breast and add it to a green bean casserole topped with Provolone cheese. This is that image! The garlicy chicken goes perfect with the green bean casserole type dish. I used some different seasonings to help add flavor to the casserole and complement the Provolone cheese. This is a very comforting and tasty dish that will likely make more frequent appearances at our dinner table! Serves about 6

In a large skillet, sauté chicken chunks in olive oil. Add in garlic, basil, ½ tsp black pepper, ½ tsp salt and vinegar. Cook for about 10-15 minutes, stirring frequently, until chicken is cooked through. In a medium saucepan, sauté mushrooms and onions in olive oil. Add in remaining sea salt and pepper. Cook for about 7-9 minutes or until veggies are soft. Sprinkle over starch and stir. Slowly add in milk and cook on medium for about 8 minutes, stirring constantly. In a greased 3 qt casserole dish, combine cooked green beans and chicken. Pour over mushroom sauce and top with slices of cheese and bread crumbs. Bake at 375°F for about 15 minutes or until mixture is bubbly and starting to brown.
