Crockpot Cheesy Broccoli, Chicken, & Rice

Submitted by: AMBAM1881


Easy, kid- and hubby- friendly crockpot meal. Easy, kid- and hubby- friendly crockpot meal.
Number of Servings: 6


    2 cups brown rice, uncooked
    5 cups water
    2 cans 98% Fat Free Broccoli Cheese Soup (can substitute
    Cream of Chicken Soup if desired - not included in
    nutritional info)
    3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, frozen
    1 10oz package broccoli, frozen
    black pepper, to taste (I used 1 tsp for nutritional values)


Stir uncooked rice, water, broccoli, & one can of soup together in Crockpot. Place frozen chicken breasts on top. Pour second can of soup over chicken breasts (the second can of soup can be eliminated to decrease sodium content, but make sure the chicken is partially submerged in liquid so it doesn't dry out). Sprinkle with black pepper, if desired. It doesn't need any extra salt due to the sodium content in the soups. Cover and cook in Crockpot on low for 8 hours. I like to shred the chicken after cooking and mix it all together. You can also just cut each breast in half and serve on top of the cheesy broccoli rice mixture. The shredded chicken often lasts longer than 6 servings making the calorie count lower.

Note: You may want to spray the bottom and lower sides of the Crockpot with Pam or similar cooking spray to prevent sticking.

    I tried this recipe before reading the comments becasue it sounded good. I didn't have low fat broccolli cheddar soup I even went to the trouble of making homemade soup to use in the recipe, and now I regret making it. My kids and I ate a few bites, but couldn't take anymore. Read reviews! - 4/13/10

    Call me brutal12, but this recipe was awful. My dog wouldn't even eat it. I substituted chicken broth for the water and it was still extremely bland-and as we all know-we first eat with our eyes, but this dish wouldn't make and inmate at a federal prison hungry. Disgusting!!! - 11/16/09

    If this recipe is too bland for some of you, a good way to add flavor without calories is to sprinkle some paprika and/or black pepper over the top. Be careful not to get too much unless you like a lot of heat.

  • Bland this is my version, 1 clove garlic, garlic powder, onion salt, cheese condensed soup and cream of chicken, 2 cups chicken broth/stock, a little seasoning salt, omitted the broccoli because my husband is picky and made it on the side, used instant rice, cooked on high 4hrs in crockpot delish! - 1/24/13

  • If the rice is coming out like a blob then cut down the water and set uncooked rice aside. When the items in crock pot are about done, cook rice according to package directions. Mix with crock pot ingredients when done. I've had little luck getting rice cooked as desired in a crock pot. - 5/13/11

  • Yummy! I made this and variations of this all the time! Then I divide it up into individual plastic containers and freeze for a rainy (or lazy) day! :) - 2/9/10

  • The recipe was kind of bland. We dumped a lot of pepper in it, and I added a little bit of garlic salt to mine. This helped give it a little more flavor. - 1/30/10

  • This recipe did not work for me...the rice came out mushy and it did not have much flavor. - 1/27/10

  • This was good, but it needed a little more flavor. I found myself putting a ton of shreaded Romano cheese to give it more flavor. - 10/20/09

    Haven't tried it with green beans, but it sounds like a good variation. I will have to try this next time. Thanks! :)

  • I made it as directed, but I just couldn't stomach it. It became a gelatinous blob of rice and broccoli with bits of bland chicken. I guess if you can get past the look, you may be able to eat it, but I couldn't do more than a bite. The whole pot went down the garbage disposal. Disappointing. - 9/14/09

    The point was not to make a gourmet, photo-worthy meal. It was simply to have a healthy meal that would cook itself while I was at work. If you're not a casserole person, you won't like this dish.

    check the calories again...they're accurate if you use two cups of COOKED rice, but not two cups of uncooked rice..... - 9/8/09
