Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut into 1 inch pieces)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup  (10.5 oz can)
  • 1 1/2 cup brown rice (uncooked)
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese (shredded)

Instructions

  • Place the chicken, garlic, salt, pepper, onion, chicken broth, cream of chicken soup and brown rice in the crock pot. Stir to thoroughly combine all the ingredients.
  • Cover and cook on high for 3.5-4 hours until the rice has absorbed all the chicken broth in the crock pot.
  • Stir in the shredded cheese. Cover and allow the heat from the meal to melt the cheese (5-7 minutes).
  • Serve warm and enjoy!

Notes

  • I recommend brown rice for this recipe instead of white rice as it's more hearty and able to handle the longer cook time from the crock pot.  I do not recommend white rice for this recipe as it will likely turn too mushy. 
  • If the mixture is too thick, gradually stir in more chicken broth at the end of the cook time until the meal is the consistency that you prefer (1/4 cup at a time). 
  • Refrigerate the leftovers in an air tight container for up to 5 days.
