I found this slow cooker cheesy chicken rice recipe on Pinterest and decided it was delicious enough to share. This is another one of Trent's favorites, so you know it's not going to be the healthiest of meals.
I tried to take a pretty picture, but it just turned out like this...
Sloppy goodness! I would not make this recipe if you are on a diet. Not because of all of the carbs but because it's so delicious you will eat it all. Be sure you have someone (or lots of someones) to share this with.
What you need:
-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
-1 box zatarain's yellow rice mix (HyVee carries this but not all grocery stores do)
-1 cup cheddar cheese
-1 10.5oz can cream of chicken soup
-1 10.5oz can drained corn
-1 large onion chopped (optional)
How you make it:
Put 4 chicken breasts at the bottom of your crockpot. Cover in cream of chicken soup.
(This is a family size can so I only used about half.)
Put your onions in too, if your husband isn't picky.
I usually just use big huge slices of onion for flavor and take them out before serving.
Apparently you are supposed to cook this on high for 3-4 hours or low 7-8. I usually set it while I'm home on my lunch break which ends up being about 5 hrs, so the low setting works for me.
After I get off work, I make the rice as directed. Except I only use half the butter, in a wimpy attempt to make this meal healthy.
While the rice steams, I usually shred the chicken using 2 forks. I also take out the onions before my husband spots them.
Next I drain the corn and dump it in with the cream of chicken and shredded chicken breasts.
I add the rice, then add 1 cup of cheese. Stir stir stir.
And there you have it! Crockpot cheesy chicken and rice!
The next time your honey is having a bad day, make this for him and he will kiss you.
