    I used brown rice (didn't have white) and made a few adjustments. I uped the garlic, added sliced onion, and lemon pepper seasoning. I also threw in some peas and carrots for added veges. Turned out delicious! Will make again for sure. Thanks for posting! - 1/7/09

    It looks like mush, but tastes pretty good. My rice also took FOREVER to cook; I'll cook it separately next time. I also got 9-10 servings instead of 6. I added some broccoli&cauliflower, but I think peas would have tasted better. - 7/20/09

    I substituted brown rice and strained the broth pior to adding the shredded chicken. This caused the broth to cool down and take longer than 30 minutes to cook the rice. It seemed to make more than 6 servings. Prob 9 did add 4 chickenbreast vs 3. It was good. served with salsa - 3/30/08

    I made this for my husband tonight and we loved it! I altered the recipe a little bit based on some of the comments. I added some spices to combat the blandness, and I cooked the rice separately and added it in at the end to avoid sogginess. Worked out great! - 10/3/09

    I only used 2 chicken breast because there are only 2 people to eat in my house and I added an onion soup mix. It is really good. I like how the cream of chicken and cream of muchroom make to nice and creamy. I will admit that it dose kinda look like mush, but it taste really good so who cares. - 8/27/09

    I added a 160 g cebolla/onion cub. 1500 mg of sodium (my bad I know but I don't do bland). I also add frozen veggie to off set the naughty sodium. Came out okay. Let's see if I manage to eat most of it during the week. That is always the test... how much ends up in my stomach versus the trash? - 6/1/08

    I've made this twice. The first time I stuck to the receipe except I used chicken broth (Swansons low sodium). This time I used water and bouillon cubes and cut the amount of uncooked rice, because I wanted it to be a little soupy, and it turned out great both times. Add lots of pepper too. YUM! - 5/14/10

    This recipe was a hit at my home. My husband is not a chicken or a rice fan but I got a "very good" from him. Everyone else thought it was awesome. Very filling and flavorful. I did double the garlic and added lots of pepper because that's the way we like it. Will make it again. - 9/18/09

    We didn't like the consistency of the shredded chicken with the rice. Next time we would not shred the chicken Plus, it was very bland and needs something extra to add to the flavor... bell peppers and other veggies? I served it with salsa when we had leftovers, but it didn't improve it enough. - 4/2/08

  • While chicken was cooking, I added 4 cloves of garlic. After 2 1/2 hrs, the chicken was cooked. I removed and shredded it. Added all the soup, minute brown rice, bag of frozen broccoli, carton of sliced mushrooms and the chicken back into the pot and cooked on low overnight. - 11/16/11

  • It seemed pretty bland using only the ingredients listed. After cooking, I added a minced celery heart for crunch and flavor, tumeric for color, parsley and lemon pepper seasoning as well as salt and pepper. If I make this again, I'll add minced carrots and peas for color and added flavor. - 9/12/11

  • Rice took MUCH longer than 20-30 minutes to cook. Mine took about 90 minutes. I have a multi-crock slow cooker (interchangeable 2, 4, and 6 qt crocks), and I was using the 4 qt on high but had to change the setting to 6 qt to raise the temperature even more. I also added broccoli to it. - 7/5/11

  • Really yummy! We added about 1/4 C chopped jalepenos into the crockpot for the last 20 minutes before serving and also added a packet of taco season for a little extra flavoring. Really yummy! - 3/31/11

  • Maybe I'm missing something but I found it impossible to get the rice to cook in the slow cooker. Ended up with a chewy rice fiasco which basically made the entire undertaking a waste of time and resources. If I made this again I would cook the rice separately. - 1/18/11

  • This was pretty good. I added tons of black pepper as I like the flavor. It also, even though it had cream soups in it, needed salt. I got alot more than 6 servings too. LOL. It was kinda mushy, but still good. And like other folks, it did take the rice forever to cook. An hour & 45 mins exactly. - 5/14/10

  • If you add frozen baby peas to the rice after you remove the chicken , it adds some color.. also parsley and fresh ground pepper. You can make the whole thing a bit prettier.. :) by adding some sliced fruit as a garnish to the plate... basically good and easy!! - 12/1/09

    I loved this recipe. I cubbed the chicken instead of shredding it. And after it was ready to be served, I put Soya Sauce on the table to use and Plum Sauce for anyone else to use as a flavor enhancer.
