Chicken & Green Bean Casserole

This was Casserole #2 of Monika/my weekend cooking endeavors! The recipe was once again adapted from the little booklet she acquired from a doctor’s office magazine (heh heh heh…). Makes 12 small-ish servings! (Filled two of these pans so we could each have one, haha.)
