Introduction

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

Ingredients

    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)

Directions

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.
