Who knew you could make green beans so yummy! I halved the recipe as I was just feeding two, but kept the amount of chicken broth the same. The only thing I'd do differently is reduce the amount of olive oil, as these were a little too greasy for me. Other than that, this is a great recipe. I sprinkled them with some Kirkland No-Salt Organic Seasoning at serving time and they really looked beautiful. My dad, who's used to canned green beans with nothing special, felt like he was eating gourmet! He said that the green beans could actually be his favorite part of the meal, just because he couldn't believe how good I was able to make them! I served this with turkey breast and Skillet Sweet Potatoes and what a delicious meal. Since I had left over broth, I was able to easily cook up a second batch the next day. Thanks, Bev!

This recipe is a keeper. I sauteed mushrooms with the garlic.

These green beans were absoultely delicious. They were easy to prepare, had a really nice flavor, and made my not-so-fresh green beans look crisp, with bright green coloring (probably from the sugar) after they were cooked. I used 5 cloves of garlic. DH and I like our beans a bit softer than what the 10 minutes in the skillet allotted (personal taste). I simmered for about 15 minutes and still would have liked them softer. DH suggested we parboil first next time (again, personal taste, I am sure). We will certainly be having this again. Thanks!

I'm not a garlic loving person but these were really good. I cut out most of the salt and they were still delicious! Thanks Bev

These were wonderfully crisp and very flavorful. I added a little extra garlic and otherwise followed the recipe to perfect results. Thanks for sharing your recipe Bev!
