Slow Cooker Cheesy Chicken and Rice on

Everyone has a go-to meal that they throw together when they don’t know what to make for dinner . . . and this one is mine. If you don’t have a go-to meal, look no further!! I always keep the ingredients on-hand so that I can make this when I am in a pinch or don’t feel like making dinner. 😉 It’s always a winner with my family!

Now I understand that many people will not like this recipe, as it uses a boxed rice mix and canned soup . . . and I completely understand. Sometimes though, you just need a simple recipe like this to make it through the day!

Serves: 4-5

    • Sorry Pat. Not sure what could have gone wrong. We had this just last week and no problems at all. After shredding the chicken, did you add it back into the soupy mixture in the slow cooker? (Don't drain the soupy mixture from the slow cooker) Did you make the rice according to package directions before adding it at the end? Ours is very creamy. Not sure what could be the problem.
