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 casserole 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.

Ingredients:

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.
This recipe is formulated to use long-grain white rice. I have not made this with brown rice. Brown rice and white rice are not equal substitutes. Brown rice uses more liquid and takes much longer to cook. 
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.
boxes of garlic soup mix
I buy the soup mix online at Walmart: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Lipton-Savory-Herb-with-Garlic-Soup-and-Dip-Mix-2-4-oz/10307795
If you can’t find the soup mix, you can substitute a package of Good Seasonings Italian Dressing Mix.

  1. I went to put all the ingredients in a bowl and it was very liquidy..it seemed fine then I added 1 cup and 3 1/4 cups (1 AND 3/4 cup) of milk and it just seems so soupy..is it supposed to not be very thick?

  2. Making this Thursday night but I can’t find the Lipton garlic and herb mix ANYWHERE! What should I use instead?

  3. I haven’t tried this as a freezer meal, so I can’t say with certainty how it would work. I think it would be fine, but I just can’t say with 100% certainty.

  4. Can you prepare this up to the point of cooking and put it into a freezer bag to be used later? Will the rice be ok? Would you wait to add the milk once ready to actually cook if it can be used as a freezer type meal?

  5. Can you substitute the milk for heavy cream or half and half? Just put everything together to realize the milk went bad!

  6. I don't have any cream of chicken on hand, but I do have cream of mushroom and cream of celery. Would 2 cans of either of those be fine as a substitute? Which would you suggest? Thanks!

    1. Thanks so much for getting back so quickly! I'm looking forward to trying this. My friend introduced me to your site and I LOVE all your recipes. Thanks for all you do!
