Variations Ideas:

  • Chicken – We used chicken breasts in this recipe but feel free to use boneless chicken thighs.
  • Rice – Feel free to use brown rice instead of white rice in this recipe. We do not recommend using minute rice as it is already cooked and could get mushy in the slow cooker.
  • Cheese – Change the cheese to what you prefer. Add in pepper jack cheese for a kick to the flavor.

Step by Step Instructions:

Adding the chicken and rice in the slow cooker

Step 1 – Place the cubed chicken and rice in a crockpot

Adding in the soups, chicken broth and seasoning with the chicken and rice

Step 2 – Add the condensed soups, chicken broth, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine everything.

Adding in broccoli with the chicken and rice mixture

Step 3 – Cover and cook on LOW for 3 ½ – 4 hours. Stir in the broccoli florets and continue cooking for another hour or until the broccoli is tender and the chicken and rice are fully cooked.

Topping the broccoli chicken mixture with cheese in the slow cooker

Step 4 – Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese on top, cover again, and let it sit for about 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Serve hot and enjoy! 

Recipe Tips:

  • Chicken – Before placing the chicken in the slow cooker, cut in bite-size pieces. This helps it to cook quick and evenly.
  • Rice – You will place the rice in the slow cooker uncooked.
  • Broccoli – Add the broccoli towards the end of cooking time so it doesn’t overcook.

Recipe Notes

Long grain white rice is recommended as it holds its shape well during the slow cooking process.
Avoid quick-cooking or instant rice, as they can become too mushy.
Adding the broccoli later in the cooking process ensures it remains vibrant and doesn’t overcook. Overcooked broccoli can become mushy and lose its bright green color.
Refrigerate the leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
