Although I'm afraid I changed this recipe a little too much, we did have a wonderful tasting casserole to accompany our chicken dinner ~ I omitted the dried mushrooms (personal choice) & steamed the beans instead of using a broth for boiling them! For the crushed crackers I used our ol' standard, Milton's Multi-Grain Crackers, which we now use whenever soda crackers are listed! In spite of all that, I do like your recipe & will be keeping it around for future reference! Thanks for sharing it!
