Chicken – You can use white meat chicken chops
Filling – A 6-ounce box of your favorite type. I used generic chicken stuffing because it was cheap.
Green beans – I used a can of drained beans, but you can use fresh trimmed beans or frozen beans.
Cream soup – You’ll need a can of chicken soup cream to make the creamy sauce.
Broth – You will need a cup of chicken broth to give it flavor and moisture.
Butter – Use 4 tablespoons of unsalted melted butter for a richer cream sauce.
Sour cream – Used for creaminess.
Spices: Italian seasoning, chopped onion and ground black pepper are needed. You don’t need extra salt for this meal.

Trimmed chicken thighs would also be delicious in this recipe
Use a different soup cream: celery cream, cheddar or even mushroom cream would work well
Add different vegetables – My mom loves to add corn to her plate in addition to green beans. In addition, you can use mixed vegetables, peas or carrots.
