Chicken And Broccoli {Slow Cooker Recipe}

Good morning, lovelies! I hope you’re having a good week. If you’ve been reading my blog for very long, you know that one of my favorite ways to fix a meal is in the slow cooker. I love to dump all the ingredients in and forget about it. I created this chicken and broccoli “casserole” in the slow cooker and every single time I make it, it is devoured.

Chicken, broccoli and rice is such a comfort food combination. Yum. Yum. Yum.

What is your favorite slow cooker / crock pot meal to make?

Have a marvelous day, my friends!

xoxo

    Sounds yummy! Would it also work to cut up the chicken in the beginning and cook on low for 8 or so hours?

  2. This sounds great. I am so happy that I have all the ingredients here in the apartment to make this. We went from the 70′s to sitting here watching it snow in less that 48 hours. This sounds like the perfect meal for a cold night. Thanks

  4. Myra,

    This is my favorite crockpot recipe. It is for a Rotisserie-style chicken and uses a whole chicken and spices – easy peasy. My kids like it a lot and leftovers are great to use in quesadillas or a casserole or just to heat and serve again.

    1 (4 to 5 pound) whole chicken

    2 t salt

    1 t paprika

    1 t onion powder

    1/2 t dried thyme

    1 t Italian seasoning (blend)

    1/2 t cayenne pepper

    1/2 t black pepper

    4 whole garlic cloves (can leave out if you don’t have)

    1 yellow onion, quartered (can also leave out; but better with!)

    Use 6 qt cooker.

    Skin chicken (very impt. step) and remove neck and inside stuff, rinse, and pat dry.

    In bowl combine spices.

    If on hand, put peeled whole garlic and quartered onion in cavity.

    Rub spices on both sides all over. Place bird breast side down in crockpot. Do NOT add water.

    Cover and cook on high for 4 to 5 hours or low for 8 hours. Meat will be tender. Less salt and fat than store-bought rotisserie versions.

  5. Chicken/Broccoli/Rice was on my menu plan for Friday already- Now I’m going to make it a crockpot plan! Woo hoo!

  7. Sounds delicious! Perfect for a cold and rainy night! Thank you for sharing the recipe.

  8. This sounds delicious! I’m always a sucker for broccoli and cheese together. I LOVE my crock pot and have so many great recipes, but my favorite is spicy shredded beef for tacos or enchiladas. Yum!

  9. I’m always on the hunt for new (toddler-friendly) crock pot recipes and this was great! I made it last night and used thawed frozen broccoli because it’s what I had on hand. I didn’t chop it up beforehand (to save time). We all liked it! Thanks for the recipe. :)

  10. Oh the deliciousness!! It looks amazing. My husband loves a good chicken and brocooli recipe – I’ve got to make this for him soon!

  11. I can’t wait to try this. Have you tried cooking it on low for longer? Did it still work out? I’m not familiar with cooking with rice in my crockpot, so I didn’t know if it would matter. We are gone on Sundays for around 7 hours, so I have been looking for great recipes to try out to have a meal all ready when we get home. That’s why I would need to cook it longer. Thanks! Looks yummy!

  12. Do you use dry rice or cooked rice in this recipe?

  13. Hey, I’m trying this tonight for dinner! Do you put in pre-cooked rice or uncooked??
    Eva Scott´s last blog post ..Fun March Holidays

  14. Do you put the chicken breasts in raw or cooked?

  15. Sounds so good! Can you use Brown Rice instead??

  16. Could i use brown rice instead of white rice? If so, should I cook it longer?

    • Myra Hope says:

      I haven’t used brown rice, but it’s definitely worth a try. You’ll just have to check it to see if the rice is done. If not, let it go a bit longer. :)

  17. Rosemary Birch says:

    Is the rice uncooked????

  18. Great recipe. Used brown rice instead and increased the broth another cup. It was done in 4 hours in my crock pot on high. Would make it again and makes a lot.

  19. The recipe looks great, Myra. I’ve been searching through tons of recipes and it’s so nice to come to one that is clear and has a beautiful photo attached to it. As usual, your blog is lovely!

  20. Would i be able to substitute olive oil for the butter? if so, how much?

  21. Do you keep cooking it once you add the sour cream and cheese? I have it in the crockpot now but wasnt sure of that step!!!

  22. Minute rice or long grain enriched rice? Thanks!

  23. A bit dissapointed in this. The rice turned to complete mush. If I make it again I’ll have to pay much closer attention to whe. The rice is done or cut way back on the broth.
