How to Make Slow Cooker Chicken & Rice with Cream of Chicken Soup

As I said, this Slow Cooker Chicken & Rice is SUPER easy to make. Put some chicken breasts in crockpot. Add some dried minced onion or onion powder and top with a can of Cream of Chicken Soup. Let the chicken cook. About 15 minutes before serving, make the rice. Shred the chicken, stir in the rice and that is it!

You can use any cream of soup that you prefer – mushroom, celery, chicken. I used a box of Uncle Ben’s Quick Cook Long Grain & Wild Rice in this Slow Cooker Chicken & Rice. You can make the rice the night before and refrigerate it. You can also use two packages of Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice Long Grain & Wild Rice. Just open the packages and stir it in the with the shredded chicken. Both options are super easy!

This Slow Cooker Chicken & Rice can be cooked on LOW all day or on HIGH for a couple of hours. I’ve made it both ways and it tastes great. It just depends on how much time you have for dinner.

  1. I used thighs rather than breast and cream of mushroom soup. I cooked the chicken for 3.5 hours on high and it was incredibly tender. Such a delicious dish. I assure you we will have this again.

    1. Made this with chicken tenderloins, cream of chicken soup, and Zatarans yellow rice mix. So good!! Served Italian beans with it. Loved it!

  2. This looks great! I love easy slow-cooker recipes and I absolutely love your blog (and the fact that you are a Birmingham girl) 🙂

  3. Couldn't get any easier or tastier. I need to use my crock pot more often. It so nice to come home to the smell of all of those flavors simmering inside, not to mention voila dinner is ready.

  4. Looks really good! I'm gonna try it….tomorrow! 🙂 I even have some leftover rice in the fridge and all that yummy sauce will save it, too.
