Ingredients Needed For Our Slow Cooker Chicken and Broccoli Over Rice:

- Cream of cheddar soup
- Cream of chicken soup
- Chicken broth
- Garlic salt
- Broccoli florets
- Fat free sour cream
- Cooked brown rice (I like to use the instant rice)
How To Make Our Slow Cooker Chicken and Broccoli Over Rice:
I promised you an easy recipe and it’s true! Start by getting out your slow cooker.
Then put the chicken breasts, a can of cream of cheddar soup, a can of cream of chicken soup, chicken broth, salt, garlic salt, and brown rice in the slow cooker.
Once it is all in there, turn the slow cooker on low for 6 hours, or on high for 4 hours.
After the time has run out, remove the chicken breasts from the slow cooker and shred the chicken. You can either use two forks or save even more time by shredding it with a hand or stand mixer.
Now is when you can begin cooking the rice you chose and make it according to the directions.
Then return the shredded chicken back to the slow cooker and add in the broccoli as well. Give it all a good stir and place the lid back on and cook everything for another 30 minutes.
When it is done, add in the sour cream and mix it all together.
Then just serve it over a bowl of rice and enjoy!
