This is prety much the same recipe I have posted on my site, Breast of Chicken on Rice , which I became aware of back in the 50/60s when my mother used to make this dish...It was designed for oven baking and I am very happy to now see a crockpot version...A couple of changes I made: I didn't use the cheese...I DID add a can of mushrooms (a must)...After adding the soup mixture like you suggested, I decided to mix the chicken with the soup mixture to be sure the chicken was well surrounded by the soup for maximum flavor instead of leaving the chicken on the bottom...I did NOT add the butter, but a little bit of olive oil instead...After 7 hours or so, this dish too, was a little soupy...I removed the cover to the crockpot for about a half an hour and some of the liquid evaporated and it turned out great...The oven version for me, has a tad more flavor due to the method of applying the soup...But thanks for a new take on an old dish...I'll be making this often...
This recipe deserves 10 stars! It was very delicious and my whole family loved it! Very easy to make and I had all the ingredients on hand, although I substituted the cream of mushroom soup for cream of chicken and cream of celery since my family doesn't like mushrooms. I will definitely make this again, thanks for sharing Foxxyladyone!
I want to give this more stars but I had issues with the recipe. I followed the directions to a "T" used the same amount of ingredients listed EXCEPT for the cheese as we didn't have any. I was concerned with the lack of liquid in this dish as it didn't seem like there would be enough. As it cooked the juices from the chicken gave it a little more in the begining. Then towards the end I guess the rice soaked up the majority of it. When I lifted the lid from my crockpot what I saw was a big mushy mess. I had crossed my fingers and hoped that the rice would be ok, but it was grainy and hard (uncooked) in some places and in others just flat out mush almost like a stuffing but in rice form. The chicken was very mosit and tender, it fell apart easily with a fork. The taste of the chicken was wonderful, after reading the reviews I was worried about the saltyness of it as I don't care for salty foods but this was fine. I will try this again and nix the rice in the crockpot perhaps make it in the rice cooker instead. Also will add maybe a can more of the mushroom soup along with extra milk and add some fresh mushrooms as that would have been a nice touch. Can always pour the soup part it over the rice after everything has cooked. Good starting point, thanks for the recipe.
This was awesome! Not to mention - EASY! My husband & I LOVED it and it will become one of our regular dishes. I didn't even add the parmesan (ours was old)! Thanks so much! I do a lot of crockpot cooking because of work schedules during the week and this is quick and easy!
Followed recipe to the T, because everyone was saying the rice was dry I cut up the chicken into bite size pieces and mixed everything together. Very good.
I liked the overall taste but the rice was not cooked. Next time, I will skip the rice and add more veggies (I did add mushrooms) and use more seasoning. Thanks for sharing :-)
My family loved this one. I used large chicken breasts and cooked all day. The rice ends up being really mushy and acts to thicken the sauce, which I really liked. I served over rice. It was so creamy delicious! Thank you for sharing!
We liked this. I used cream of chicken soup instead. We live in the high desert so I cooked the rice by itself. Next time I will just leave off the butter. For me all it did was make a puddle on the top so I just scooped it off. It tasted great and made great left overs.
This was very good and easy to make. Reading some of the other reviews about the rice being non-existent, I added extra. I also didn't add any salt or pepper. This is comfort food at its best!
I made this as written, but we just didn't enjoy it. The rice pretty much disappeared and turned completely into mush, and this was far too salty for our tastes (and I added no additional salt and pepper).
