Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Cover and keep warm or refrigerate until ready to use.
In the same skillet, add the onion and crushed red pepper. Cook 1 - 2 minutes. Add in green beans and toss to coat. Pour in chicken broth. Cover and turn heat to low. Simmer for 1 - 1 1/2 hours or until beans are tender. Sprinkle with bacon and cook just until bacon is warmed through.
