There is nothing like a fully cooked meal in my slow cooker. Throw everything into the pot, turn it on, and walk away. Coming back to a full-cooked meal after working all day, or running errands, or just being lazy. This slow cooker chicken broccoli rice casserole is something you can toss together in the morning and have a great supper waiting for you at the end of the day.

My biggest tip, and biggest fault using my slow cooker is: remembering to plug it in. Yup, that simple. Thankfully I’m usually home anyways when I use it so I catch it pretty quickly.

What you need:

  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese about 6 ounces
  • 2 can 10 1/2 ounces condensed cream of chicken soup OR use our homemade version
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 6 cups broccoli florets
  • 6 medium carrots peeled and thinly sliced (about 3 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked instant rice
  • 6 chicken breast – boneless

How to make Slow Cooker Chicken, Broccoli, and Rice:

Diced carrots, chopped broccoli dropped into the bottom.

Top with chicken breast. I use frozen, both broccoli (usually) and chicken. This was made with fresh broccoli only because I had it on hand.

Mix together 2 cans of cream of chicken soup or double the homemade version, chicken broth, and 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Pour over the chicken.

Cook in your crock pot on low for 6-7 hours.

After 6-7 hours, turn off your slow cooker. Remove the chicken and stir in your rice, replace the chicken, and top with the remaining cheese.

I am eating more and more veggies, and with me eating it, my kids (and Blake) are eating more veggies too. Brookland likes to claim that she doesn’t like broccoli, but she sure eats it up quickly.

After many years of making this, it is still a big favorite meal around. Any meal that I can toss everything into my slow cooker is a favorite of mine.

During the summer I tend to make a lot more crockpot meals because I don’t want to heat up the house by running the oven. Last year I even changed myself to not use it at all. I failed, but we still only used the oven a couple of times.
