This is one of our favorite one pot slowcooker recipes. It is so easy and so good and comforting. It is perfect for anytime of year.
The original recipe is made in a casserole dish. I LOVE to utilize my crockpot/slowcooker whenever possible. I adjusted the measurements and the crockpot version was made. I love making easy and simple dishes most of the time. Sometimes I just don’t have time to be in the kitchen all day long cooking. We have other things to do during the day around here. lol.
Anyway, you all know I don’t like to make a long, long blog post for just a recipe so… let’s get right into it.
1 Chicken Breast ( boneless and skinless)
2 Cups Cheddar Cheese – grated
1 Cup Rice – rinsed
1 Can Cream Of Celery Soup
16 oz. Broccoli – chopped into smallish pieces
Salt And Pepper – to taste
1 Tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 Tsp Onion Powder
1 Cup Chicken Broth
- OK, first thing. If you want to cook the chicken in the crockpot, here is how I do it. I put the chicken in the crockpot with 1 cup of water. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours. I remove the chicken and shred it. I reserve one cup of the cooking broth. I add 1 tsp of chicken bouillon powder to the seasoning and omit the chicken broth. If you do not want to do it this way just cook the chicken in the crockpot with chicken broth and reserve one cup of that cooking liquid. Whichever way you want to do it, it works. It is just preference. OR you can just cook the chicken on the stove in a pot of water until cooked through and shred it.
- To the crockpot, add the cooked shredded chicken, rice, celery soup, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and broth. Stir to combine well.
- Add the broccoli and the cheddar cheese and stir to combine. Or you can stir in the broccoli and just leave the cheese on top of the mixture. It works both ways. lol. It is preference here as well.
- Cover and cook on high for roughly 2 to 3 hours. Check at the 2 hour mark because the heat of your slowcooker may vary and cook at a different temp. Once our rice is tender and cooked through, you are done.
- Now all you have to do is serve it up. I pair mine with a side salad….. or just as is.
- If you do not like cream of celery soup you can certainly use a different style of “cream of” soup. Maybe a cream of cheddar or cream of mushroom soup. Sounds yummy. May need to try that. lol
