Slow Cooker Chicken and Rice Stew

Today, I made a Slow Cooker Chicken and Rice dish as my final recipe for  #SlowCookerWeek. If you missed any of the other recipes I made for this week, such as Winter Bread Pudding or Pinto Bean and Chorizo Naan Bread Appetizers just click on the links! I hope you love them all!

Today's recipe is comfort food in a slow cooker! It is loaded with chunks of chicken breast and is paired with Banza Tri-Color Legume Rice, the sponsor of this post. Thank you Banza! I love your products! I refer to this dish as stew because it is thick and tastes best served in a bowl spooned over a roll or a piece of bread. It has a creamy, yummy texture that I think you will like. I hope you enjoy it!



Slow Cooker Chicken and Rice Stew
 (serves 4-6)
(printable recipe at end of page)

2 medium size Chicken Breast
1 tablespoon Butter
Garlic Powder
Black Pepper
1 medium Onion
8 oz. package Banza Tri-Color Legume Rice
1 1/3 cup low sodium Chicken Broth
1 tablespoon Butter
2 tablespoon Soy Sauce
1 cup Corn (frozen is fine)
1 1/2 cups Water
Drippings from chicken
Rolls for bottom of bowl 
Cheese for top of dish

 Filet the chicken breasts, and cut out any veins.


Melt the butter in a large frying pan on medium high. Place the chicken in the pan and sprinkle liberally with black pepper and garlic powder.


Flip over once the first side is browned, and brown the other side. Don't worry about cooking the chicken through. It will cook once it is in the slow cooker. Add onions and cook along with the chicken.


Add rice and chicken broth to the slow cooker, set on low.


Chop the chicken into small pieces, and add it to the slow cooker. Add butter, soy sauce, corn, water and drippings. Set timer to 1 1/2 -2 hours. When you are ready to serve, sprinkle your favorite shredded cheese on top! This recipe is not an all day in the crock pot recipe, but it is so handy for me. There are many times when I have been interrupted in the middle of preparing dinner and I need to leave the house to pick someone up, or go on an errand when something  is needed.

 Whatever the reason, this recipe is great for being able to walk away and let the food cook, instead of having to stand at the stove the entire time. Scroll down to the end of the page for the recipe!
