Chicken Fried Green Beans

When I was a little girl, green beans were second only to spinach on my list of most hated vegetables. In an attempt to get at least some vegetables in me my mother would sometimes cook green beans in this way. To her relief, I actually ate them! We drizzled them with butter or ketchup.

This recipe is from long before the present trend of frying everything from Twinkies to butter (thanks, Paula Deen!), and is how mama made them, all those years ago.
