- The whole frozen green beans may seem like an odd addition, but trust me it is so yummy. We always use whole frozen beans. Fresh beans would likely turn out more crisp and canned would give it an entirely different texture.
- You can use a different cheese than pepper jack, but then the dish won't be pepper jack chicken ;).
- You can use chicken breasts instead of boneless skinless thighs, but the cooking time may vary.
