Crock Pot Chicken and Brown Rice with Broccoli
We know you’re going to love this creamy, dreamy pasta as much as we do. And so will your kiddos! Submitted by Amanda Stice
This low fat Mexican fiesta chicken is a great alternative to fast food! Not only is this Mexican fiesta chicken healthy, it is quick and easy to make!
White Wine (I used Riesling), Cream of Celery Soup (Can use Cream of Mushroom), Honey Mustard, Minced Garlic, Pork Chops (3/4 inch thick), Salt, and Pepper
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
Spray crock pot with cooking spray.
Pour in rice and chicken broth and onion.
Lay chicken breasts on top. Sprinkle with salt, Italian seasoning and garlic powder.
Cover and cook on high for 4 to 6 hours or until chicken breasts are cooked.
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.
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.
Cool leftovers and freeze in individual or family size servings without the mess. Thaw and reheat in the microwave for a healthy lunch.
