Recipe Ingredients for Slow Cooker Chicken and Rice

1 1/2 cups rice
14 oz chicken broth
1 1/2 cups 1% milk
3/4 cup flour
1 small onion
8 oz sliced mushrooms
12 oz chicken breast
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp paprika

Recipe Directions for Slow Cooker Chicken and Rice

  1. Combine all of the chicken broth (1 1/2 cups) and 1/2 cup of milk in a sauce pan and heat over medium heat on the stove.

  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the remaining 1 cup of milk with 3/4 cup flour.

  3. When the broth and milk have begun to boil, reduce heat, and slowly stir in the milk and flour mixture.

  4. When everything is fully incorporated, set the pot aside to cool.

  5. Spray the inside of your crockpot with cooking spray.

  6. Add the rice and seasonings to your crock. Chop up the onion, and add it with the mushrooms. Stir in your broth, flour, and milk mixture. The rice will turn a bit red from the paprika.

  7. Lay the chicken pieces on top.

  8. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours, or low for about 8. I cooked ours on high for 4, and let it stay warm for another 2.

  9. When you take the lid off of the crockpot, stir the rice. If the rice is fully cooked and you have extra liquid, keep the lid off for about 15 minutes. The liquid will absorb quickly.
