Chicken & Rice. In the Crock Pot.

Happy Saturday! I have noticed that the time the post is made is not correct at all. Oh well, guess they can’t find New York time. Last night was crock pot night, I figured the “schedule” can start in March, since most of the meals are already planned for this month!

 

This is one of Ricky’s top meal choices. I know that everyone and their mother is against the cream of chicken soup, but to be honest, its soup, and it makes some foods taste better. There is a post someplace on how to make you own, and maybe one day I’ll try it, but that day is not today…

 

No ingredient photos, SORRY! After everything was placed into the cooker, it was too late. But this is what you’ll need:

 

3-4 frozen or thawed chicken breast. (doesn’t matter)

1 pack of zesty italian dressing dry mix.

( i’m also sure the regular would be fine, but i’ve never tried it.)

1 block of cream cheese 8 oz.

1 can of cream of chicken soup

1 -3 cups of cooked rice.

 

Place the cream cheese, soup, and dressing mix into the slow cooker, and cook on low for an hour. It helps the cream cheese melt a little bit. Then place the chicken on top  & cover them with a bit of the mixture. If they don’t get coated, it’s fine, as the chicken cooks, you can turn the over and stir it. I turned my crock pot on high since it was already 1pm. Cook on low for 5-6 hours, or on high 3-5 hours.  If you prefer shredded chicken you can shred it. Warning: The chicken will break apart into pieces anyway.

When the chicken looks cooked, no pink. Then start to cook some rice on the stove. I used Minute White Rice.  I know brown rice is better for you, but i’m not sure if it would compliment this meal or make it worse. 

Add the cooked rice to the crock pot and stir well. I usually turn it to low, or warm at this point. Serve & Enjoy.

It’s not a pretty meal by any means, but its delicious, and it’s great for fussy eaters. It’s easy to throw together, and perfect when having company over. My mother-in-law loved this meal as well. 🙂 It will serve 4 people with a good sized serving. This is one of those meals that taste better the next day as well.
