The Best Cheesy Chicken and Rice in the Crock Pot

I am a big fan of slow cooker meals. I love dumping everything in the slow cooker and coming home to dinner. This Slow Cooker Parmesan Chicken & Rice is one of our favorites. It is SO easy and SOOOO delicious! Chicken and Rice with garlic and parmesan – all of my favorites in one dish!

This makes a lot of chicken and rice. I shredded my cooked chicken and stirred it back into the rice. You can also leave the cooked chicken breasts whole and just serve them with the cooked rice. Either way is fine. I just prefer finding chunks of chicken in my cheesy rice.

We LOVED this cheesy chicken and rice! It tastes great right out of the slow cooker or leftover for lunch the next day! It reminded me a lot of chicken risotto. I happen to LOVE chicken risotto, so this is right up my alley. Put it on the menu ASAP!!!

How to Make Slow Cooker Parmesan Chicken & Rice

This Slow Cooker Parmesan Chicken & Rice is super easy to make. Spray the slow cooker insert with cooking spray and lay the chicken in the bottom. You will need 3 or 4 boneless chicken breasts, just depending on their size. You are shooting for about 2 pounds of chicken. Next mix together the soup mix, cream of chicken soup, milk and rice. Pour over the chicken. Cover the slow cooker and let it work its magic! If you feel like the chicken and rice mixture is too thick, feel free to add some chicken broth or extra milk to thin it out. Feel free to throw in some frozen mixed vegetables too. YUM!

This Slow Cooker Parmesan Chicken & Rice uses a packet of Lipton’s garlic soup mix. It will be next to the Lipton’s Onion Soup Mix at the grocery store. Please note, you are only going to just use the mix. Don’t make the soup. Also, make sure to use regular long-grain rice, not instant. If you use brown rice, you will need to adjust the liquid and the cooking time.

YUM! #slowcooker #crockpot #chickenandrice #chicken #kidfriendly

Ingredients:

  • 4 to 6 skinless boneless chicken breasts about 2 lbs
  • 2 (10.75-oz) cans cream of chicken
  • 1 package Lipton Savory Herb & Garlic Recipe Soup & Dip Mix
  • 1-3/4 cups milk
  • 1 cup regular long-grain rice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan

Instructions:

  • Spray the insert of the slow cooker with cooking spray. Place chicken in the bottom.
  • Mix together the cream of chicken soup, Lipton Garlic Soup Mix, milk, and regular rice. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Pour over chicken. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top of rice mixture.
  • Cover slow cooker and cook on HIGH for 3 or 4 hours.
  • Remove chicken from slow cooker and chop. Place back in the slow cooker and stir to combine.
  • If rice mixture is too thick, add water, chicken broth or additional milk to thin out.

Notes:

Do not cook rice in advance. I used Great Value Long-Grain Rice.
I used a Hamilton Beach 6-qt Slow Cooker. It took 3 1/2 hours.
The rice will not be light and fluffy like plain cooked rice. The rice is soft. This is a casserole. The mixture will be somewhat thick.

  1. I tried this and my rice never cooked, it was crunchy when the 4 hour timer went off. Should I have cooked it before hand?

    1. I did not cook the rice before hand. All slow cookers are different, so it may take a little longer in yours.

    2. I made this for lunch today and my rice was cooked in 3 hours. Make sure you cooked it on HIGH. If you cooked it on LOW it will take much longer.

    1. Kale – I haven't made this particular recipe with brown rice. Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

  2. Do you recommend the shredded block of parmesan cheese, or the powdery parmesan Cheese (like the green can kind)?

  3. I can only find Lipton Savory Herb and Garlic soup mix-is that the same as the garlic soup mix you list in ingredients?

  4. Made it with what I had. Used cooked, chopped turkey. Added some frozen broccoli and sliced carrots. Added about 1/2 cup of water and baked in a 9×13 pan at 375 for an hour and 15 minutes. Delish! Can't wait to get some chicken breasts and make it in the slow cooker.

  5. Is there anything that can be substituted for the cream of chicken or is it necessary? Trying to keep sodium level down for my mother's blood pressure.

  6. I love my crock pot and I am sure it is lonely since I got my IP for Christmas. Have you tried this recipe in the IP?

    1. I have not made this in the Instant Pot. You can certainly use the slow cooker setting on your IP if you wish.

    1. If adding frozen peas, add them at the end. They only need a few minutes to cook. If adding some frozen mixed vegetables, you can add them at the beginning or at the end and cook for 15 to 30 minutes.
