Cheesy Chicken With Bacon and Green Beans

Cheesy Chicken

This is super speedy to make and I like that it’s all cooked in just one pan so washing up is minimal. It’s a great way to get my kiddies to eat green beans; they love them in this cheesy sauce.

Cheesy Chicken With Bacon and Green Beans

(serves 4)


  • Splash of olive oil
  • 1 onion
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 4 rashers of bacon
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 100g fresh green beans
  • 2 tablespoons of cornflour
  • 400ml milk
  • 100g Strong Cheddar Cheese.


  1. Finely chop the onion, dice the chicken and snip up the bacon with scissors. Crush the garlic and cut the green beans in half. Throw everything into a pan with the oil and fry gently until the chicken is cooked through and the onion is soft.
  2. Take it off the heat and stir in the cornflour followed by the milk, bit by bit.
  3. Pop it back on the heat and stir as it comes up to a simmer and the sauce thickens.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese.

(Optional:  You could use broccoli or mushrooms instead of green beans if you prefer.)

 It’s such an easy and quick dish, ideal for throwing together after a busy day when your children are ravenous and you need something tasty and fast.  It’s versatile too and delicious served with rice, pasta or a jacket potato.
