Recipe: Slow Cooked Pulled Chicken and Green Bean Casserole

Pulled Chicken and Green Bean CasseroleThis Pulled Chicken and Green Bean Casserole is a great meal that you can keep all the ingredients on hand for those days you need to go grocery shopping but don’t have time. I had the BBQ sauce left over in my freezer. It is the same recipe I used for the Pulled Pork Casserole. I only had chicken breasts in the freezer but you can use any boneless cut of chicken. The higher the fat content of the yogurt, the creamier the green bean casserole will be.

Place the chicken breasts on a baking pan lined with aluminum foil for easy clean up. Cover chicken with bbq sauce. Bake in a 275 degree oven for 2 hours. You could also throw this in a slow cooker on low for 4 hours. Once slightly cooled, use two forks to pull chicken apart.
