Recipe by WildLime
This is our Thanksgiving side dish staple but it would go great with chicken or salmon. One of the great things about this recipe is that you can cook the green beans ahead of time and make the sauce at the last minute which usually helps with those holiday meals! This is a family recipe that originally came from my Aunt in SoCal. UPDATE: after reading reviews, I've increased the amount of chicken broth to make more of the yummy sauce. Thanks for the great feedback!
