Crock Pot Cheesy Chicken and Rice

I just had a conversation earlier this week with some awesome blogging friends about all of the different types of small appliances we own.  What we can/can't live with, what has earned a permanent place on the countertop, and other small appliances we rotate from counter to pantry.  In my house, one small appliance that has a permanent place on my counter is the 6-Quart Crock Pot.

The crock pot saves us time in the evenings.  When we are busy with sports, or Dave is busy in the fields in the spring, or we are both busy in the fall, the crock pot helps us get that delicious meal ready! 

This week I got together with some blogging friends, and we had a freezer meal party! A very special thanks to Indiana Family of Farmers for this fun experience.  Eight of us exchanged our recipes and took home 8 amazing meals that will help us get our family fed on our hectic evenings. Think about some of your favorite family meals.  They might be easy to make ahead of time and freeze.  It saves you money, because you are not eating out, and you might be looking for those special ingredients to go on sale. It's a WIN for YOU! Check out the 8 freezer meal recipes we shared that day!

If you think you would like to take a few hours, and have a freezer party with your friends, you should check out The Queen of Free, Cheri Lowe's blog about having a successful freezer meal day.  You will get most of your day by being very well prepared. 

I have had this recipe in the recipe box for a few years.  Since I started my job as a grain originator 14 years ago, this was a recipe I made the first fall I was very busy working long hours at the elevator. 

I use Campbell's soup for this recipe. 2 cans of cream of chicken and 2 cans of cheddar cheese.

Place chicken breast in the bottom of a Crock Pot sprayed with Pam cooking spray.  Use salt and pepper for taste.

Add all soups over the chicken.  Cover Crock Pot and cook on high for 3-4 hours or 6-7 hours on low.  When chicken is done, remove from Crock Pot and shred.  Add chicken back to crock pot and stir. Keep on low or warm until ready to serve over rice or pasta.

Should the cooking times be reversed?

I saw the same, I'm betting it should be reversed....

Thank you! I will correct the time.

''Cook on low 3-4 high or on low for 6-7 hours''
I assume you mean 3-4 hours on high or 6-7 hours on low.

what do you think about adding a can of Rotel?

Crystal Kellner said...

I think Rotel would be good, and would add extra flavor! Thanks for visiting my blog!
