Crockpot Cheesy Chicken & Rice

You will start off by adding your chicken and some diced onion to your crockpot. You can cut your onion in big or small pieces however you prefer.  It really depends on how your family feels about onions.  If they are anti-onion you can use onion powder and they will never know.

Next you will need a can of cream of chicken soup. Just spoon or dollop it on top of the chicken and onion. Place the cover Cover your crockpot and let it cook away for the day.

When it’s almost ready to eat you will need to add some cooked rice. What I like to do is cook my rice the night before and just stick it in the fridge. Then you can dump it into the slow cooker and stir it up and give it a minute or two to get heated. You can also cook your rice soon as you get home, if you prefer. You will also add your corn and cheese.  Just give it a few minutes and then stir to combine, put cover on for 5 minutes and then serve it hot.

    This looks great! I have sadly only used my crockpot once 🙁

    but that looks like something I could make, especially on a rainy day like today….

  2. Made this tonight since I didn’t get it done yesterday. The whole house smelled yummy and it was yummy. My 3 yr old son liked it also. Lot’s of left overs. Very good and simple!

    1. Thanks Kathy! I know how 3 year olds can be sometimes so I am so glad to hear he liked it!

  3. 4 stars
    I really enjoyed this and I am a very picky eater. I used frozen corn and also added peas. Very tasty. I have a few little things I need to adjust for next time but it’s something that will be on my list of things to make from now on.

    Just made this tonight! Work fatigue kicked in and I threw everything in together right away! Lol, I hope it turns out okay!

  5. Thanks, this gave me a good idea and base for how I’m going to handle dinner toinght. It’s 3:30pm now and I need it done by 6pm. Chicken will be from a can, sub O’Brien potatoes for rice and broccoli for the corn. Pretty much the same on the rest. Great way to start the ideas rolling!! Thanks 🙂

  6. This is cooking in my crockpot right now!!! My family doesn’t like onions so we are skipping that part. Hubby is gluten free now so I love that you have some easy recipes for me to whip up and in a crock pot. Keep em coming! Will respond with the verdict after it’s cooked. 🙂 (smells amazing though!)

      1. With thawed chicken but you can make with frozen as well. You may have to allow a little more cooking time though.

    What a great Crockpot recipe, we will really enjoy your Cheesy Chicken and Rice dish. Hope you are having a great day and thanks so much for sharing your awesome recipe with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!

  8. Have this in the crock pot now, smell Delish, think I’m going to cut the chicken up in bite size pieces!

    I made this and it was good, but I doubled the cheese and added about a cup of sour cream and it made it amazing!!

  10. Could you do or has anyone done this with those great pre-chopped frozen onions? Or frozen corn? Just throw the corn in earlier, maybe?

    I made this but felt like it needed something a little extra to it to spice it up so I added a tablespoon of french onion dip and it was perfect!

    We love this recipe and have been making it often since we found it here. We have experimented and I have some suggestions to change it up if you like: We use frozen cooked rice. It’s in the frozen food aisle with the frozen veggies – just throw it in the last 15 minutes of cooking with the frozen mixed veggies. We use the brown rice and we also use the fat free Cream of Chicken, Cream of Celery or Cream of Mushroom (my fave). My 6yr old picky eater granddaughter LOVES this dish. I have passed this along to many newlyweds as an easy, yummy dinner! Thank you for this.

  13. how much chicken would you say you used by weight? 1 Lb or 2? Different stores around me seem to carry different sized breasts. 1Lb at one store might be 2 large pieces while a pound at a different store would be 4 Small ones.

  14. I’m going to spice it up a bit by adding two cans enchilada sauce, a can of refried beans & some cilantro. Then maybe garnishing it with sour cream & serving with tortillas. I got the enchilada sauce, refried beans & cilantro idea from a casserole dish on pintrest. I’m preparing now, it should be yummy!

  15. I see you add cream of chicken soup. Do you add the can of water with that? I don’t see any other liquid being added.

  16. Found your “8 Frozen Meals in 2 hours” recipes with the shopping list (most excellent – except could you add “Ziplock bags” to the list so idiots like me will remember to buy those too?) – then saw this recipe in the sidebar. Can this be prepped and frozen in a Ziplock bag, thawed, and then cooked in crockpot? I wondered if it would mess up the consistency. Thank you for all of your work. Looking forward to trying other freezer meals for my big, busy family!

    1. You don’t want to freeze the rice but you could prep all an d then add your rice when you put it in the crockpot. Great tip about the ziplocs!

  17. I made this today, it was good but could have been better. Too much onion for my taste, I’d say maybe 1/2 an onion, but I know to cut back next time.

    I was hoping for this to be awesome. It turned out pretty bland but I followed the recipe exactly as stated. Next time I’ll add more cheese and more seasonings and maybe some garlic. ?

    I am going to make this tonight! I love recipes like this……..it looks so good! Thanks for posting it!!

  20. I’m going to attempt this today. But the only rice I have is Knorrs Spanish rice. I’m hoping it works. Thanks for the recipe.
