It started with a request. A small one that somehow blew out of proportion and turned into a slow cooker casserole bake thing.
What do you want for dinner? I swear that question is always the culprit in these situations.
Broccoli Cheese soup was the answer.
By the time I left for work it had escalated quite quickly. We had gone from broccoli cheese soup to broccoli cheese soup with rice stirred in to a broccoli cheese soup with rice and chicken.
Essentially a slow cooker version of cheesy broccoli chicken and rice bake.
But its better than that. Why? Real, homemade broccoli cheese soup instead of dumping a cream of chicken soup over layers of chicken, broccoli, and rice with cheese sprinkled on top.
Way better. And creamier. Bryan loves that creamy richness in his food. Its comfort food for him and that makes him happy.
Slow Cooker Broccoli Cheese Chicken Rice
1 pound cooked chicken, shredded
2 cups cooked rice
Broccoli Cheese Soup
Cook rice in rice cooker.
Place ingredients for broccoli cheese soup in slow cooker. Cook on HIGH.
While soup is cooking, cook the chicken via oven or frying on the stove. I ended up buying rotisserie chicken because Bryan unhooked to stove to tile.
At the hour mark add chicken and rice to the soup and stir.
30 minutes later, the casserole should be done.
OMG, so creamy. I feel like it was a little too mushy. I don’t like mushy.
But other than that, it tasted pretty good. Bryan said it was phenomenal.
And it’s such a quick put together, so will be done before you know it.
