Chicken Taco Chili – A tasty recipe for the slow cooker.

Cook Time 4 hrs
Temp High

This is a complete meal crock pot style without having to cook brown rice. It’s so easy and delicious I decided to make it for our monthly mission meal to feed the homeless. There’s nothing like a home cooked crock pot dish. I know you’ll love there is no cooking rice prior to crocking and it contains healthy broccoli, fresh or frozen, whatever you have on hand.


  • 2 Cups brown rice
  • 1 Quart chicken broth
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 3-4 chicken breasts
  • 1 Teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 Teaspoon pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 Cup light sour cream
  • 2 Cups sharp shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 Cups frozen (12 to 14 oz) or fresh broccoli florets


  1. Step One

    Spray crock pot with cooking spray.

  2. Step Two

    Pour in rice and chicken broth and onion.

  3. Step Three

    Lay chicken breasts on top. Sprinkle with salt, Italian seasoning and garlic powder.

  4. Step Four

    Cover and cook on high for 4 to 6 hours or until chicken breasts are cooked.

  5. Step Five

    During last crocking hour, remove chicken breasts and cut into bite-sized pieces. Add chicken back to crock as well as sour cream and cheddar cheese. Stir together and place broccoli on top.

  6. Step Six

    Cover and crock an additional thirty minutes to an hour until most of the liquid is absorbed, broccoli is tender and rice is done. It will further thicken as it is removed from the heat.

  7. Step Seven

    Cool leftovers and freeze in individual or family size servings without the mess. Thaw and reheat in the microwave for a healthy lunch.

    I’m giving it a four because the rice was still a little crunchy after the 6 hours. It tasted delicious, but I’m going to have to cook it longer the next time. I was wondering if anyone else had this problem?

    I was really looking forward to this recipe but it’s not even done cooking and I’m afraid it’ll be going in the trash. I don’t like brown rice so I substituted white rice. I took the chicken out at 3 hours to cut it up and the rice had completely turned to mush. I don’t know if it’s because I’m using white rice instead of brown, or something else. The flavor isn’t bad but there’s no way all of this will be eaten with the rice as it is. Nothing more frustrating than throwing money away :(

    Husband loved it, as did all 4 picky kids (b/w ages of 4-8). Giving it a 4 because I thought it was bland. It is a great base recipe, if I could just find a way to jazz it up the grown-ups serving a bit. Super easy to put together and will definitely make it again.

    Hello. I am new to your site and this will be the first recipe that I try. Any idea how many servings this makes? I’m trying to figure out if I should half the recipe.

    I’d like to make this without the rice so my low carb hubby can eat it. How should I adjust the recipe? Less liquid?
