I liked these beans, especially for the ease of prep. I don't normally use the microwave to cook my veggies, or any food for that matter, but I wanted to follow the recipe exactly. Keep in mind microwaves will vary, so I think 4 minutes would be perfect next time in my 1000W microwave. The servings size is a little on the small size, so I made 3/4 lb instead of 1/2. I kept the chicken granules the same though, and it turned out much too salty for my tastes. This could just be the brand I used (Knorr), but next time I will use about half the stated amount, and also use unsalted butter. I also used less garlic than called for, since the garlic is raw and therefore quite potent. I will definitely make these again with the minor tweaks. Even though they were too salty, I ended up eating 4 servings (SHHHH, they were SMALL servings!) Thank you Chelsey for the quick and tasty recipe!
