Rinse beans in a colander, then wrap up in a clean dish towel to dry.
Cook bacon pieces in a large saucepan until crisp. Add green beans to the pan and continue to cook on medium heat, tossing beans well to coat in bacon dripping, until beans turn bright green about 3 minutes. Slowly add the chicken broth, then the salt and pepper and bring to a simmer.
Simmer on low, covered with the lid cracked just a bit, stirring occasionally, until the beans are tender, about 1 hour. Drain if desired (I don't. I serve them with a splash of the cooking liquid on the top) and check and adjust seasoning, then serve.
