This is a Chicken Legs original recipe. He had these green beans at catered lunch a few years ago and asked the caterer for the recipe. She would only tell him the ingredients, so we hit the kitchen and experimented with it until we got it just right. These are the best green beans we’ve ever had – seriously!!

Start with cooking some bacon, onion, and a trio of bell peppers. Once the bacon is crispy, add drained canned green beans, Italian marinade, and some water or chicken broth. Let the beans simmer. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with some chopped cashews.

 Please note, this recipe uses Italian Marinade NOT Italian dressing. I used Lawry’s Signature Italian marinade, but any brand will work. Just make sure you don’t use Italian dressing. We served these green beans at Christmas with the skirt steak and sautéed mushrooms. You are going to want to steal this recipe!

  1. I am envious of your backsplash! I have to do ours this year.

    The beans look great. Nice way to juice up plain ol' green beans in a can.

  2. I can't tell if you are using Italian green beans or not, but if you are not, you definitely should. They are right there in the canned green been aisle and so much more tasty!!!
