Ingredients

  • 8 ounces cooked chicken, cubed
  • 1 cup long-grain rice (converted rice like Uncle Ben's works best)
  • 4 ounces reduced-fat Cheddar cheese shredded (about 1 cup)
  • 12 ounces organic cream of mushroom condensed soup
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 bag (16 ounces) frozen broccoli florets, thawed

Instructions

  • Ideal slow cooker size: 4-Quart.
  • Coat the slow cooker insert with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Place the chicken, rice, cheese, soup and chicken broth in the slow cooker.
  • Stir to combine.
  • Cover and Cook on LOW 3-1/2 to 5 hours, until the rice is nearly tender and has absorbed most of the liquid.
  • Stir in the broccoli and cook 30 minutes longer.

Recipe Notes

Cook this recipe on a day when you can watch it. It seemed like one minute my slow cooker chicken rice and broccoli was soupy and the next thing I knew it was on the verge of being overdone.
 
Creamy and comforting, adding the broccoli to this slow cooker chicken and rice dish during the last 30 minutes prevents it from getting overcooked.
