Pesto Artichoke Chicken over Rice

This is an adaptation of my Artichoke Chicken with Rice recipe (#183814). The pesto saves time on mixing up seasonings, and lends a wonderfully rich flavor to the rice. PLEASE NOTE: Due to comments on this and my similar recipe I've noted that you need to use converted or brown rice for this to turn out right.

ingredients

directions

  • Place rice in crockpot and add the broth.
  • Rinse chicken and pat dry; cut into bite-size pieces.
  • Place chicken on rice and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Add artichoke hearts.
  • Pour pesto over chicken and artichokes, then spoon cream of chicken soup over the top.
  • Cover and cook for 4 - 6 hours. Check rice and stir about an hour before cooking is complete to avoid "mushy" rice.

    I like all of these ingredients separately, but when you put them together, it just didn't work for me. My daughter, who will eat most anything I cook took a pass on it tonight. I felt there was too much of an artichoke taste going on. Maybe cutting the artichokes to 1/2 a can would be better. But another problem was the pesto sauce. It soaked into the rice turning it a greenish grey color. Not a very attractive dish when served. Sorry. :-(

    Unfortunately we didn't like it... The taste of the pesto was not a good combination with the chicken... And I used a delicious basil pesto I buy at Sam's.

    Easy and adaptable. I have made this about 3 times now and have made it a different way each time. I now add frozen spinach and I only use about 4 tbsp of pesto and the taste is fine. This is a keeper for me.

    I loved the flavors of this, although I chickened out of cooking the rice in the crock pot. I couldn't find converted rice and I didn't want to risk it. Just cooked the rice on the store top & added chicken on top. 5 stars for sure!

    I used uncle bens converted rice and cooked per instructions in a crock pot (smart pot) and it came out perfect. My daughter asks for the all the time, sans artichokes. I have used low fat creamed soup and it works just fine. Thanks for a family favorite!
