Easy Chicken and Rice Casserole

This is an easy to make slow cooker recipe. My slow cooker tends to cook warm, so once I added the rice, I had add more water than what the recipe calls for. Next time, I think I would add another can of condensed cream of chicken soup.



Easy Chicken and Rice Casserole
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1 inch slices
  • 1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 jar (4.5 oz) sliced mushrooms
  • ½ cup water
  • 1½ cups frozen vegetables, thawed
  • 1½ cups uncooked instant white rice
  1. In a slow cooker place chicken. Top with soup, mushrooms, and water. Stir to mix and spread evenly over chicken. Cover and cook on low for 4 - 5 hours.
  2. About 15 minutes before serving, stir thawed vegetables and rice into the chicken mixture. Cover and cook on low for another 10-15 minutes or until the rice is done. Salt and pepper to taste.

Tip Of The Day

Adding rolled oats to a bread recipe adds to the chewy texture and helps the loaf retain its moistness a little longer.

M&Ms Chocolate Mini Baking Bits
Variety of additional toppings such as shredded coconut, granola, raisins, candy, nuts, small pretzels, snack mixes, sunflower seeds, popped corn, and mini marshmellows

Spread top of each pizza with frosting. Sprinkle with M&M’s Chocolate Mini Baking Bits and 2 or 3 of the suggested toppings.
