Crockpot Cheesy Chicken and Rice

Crockpot Cheesy Chicken and Rice

Hello everyone!
How is every one doing? Here in Rochester, we have been getting way too much rain. I like it, just makes it hard to do anything, like my new favorite hobby HIKING! I just love taking my dogs and going hiking, running up hills and experiencing nature. It's a lot of fun. I really need hiking boots though, my sneakers aren't cutting it.

This crockpot dinner is so easy, there is hardly any prep and it's so good. But I did change a few things to make it more tasty and healthy.

Crockpot Cheesy Chicken and Rice

4 pieces of chicken breast (skinless and boneless)
2 cans of cream of chicken (you can use no fat, no salt or regular)
1 can of corn (drained)
2 cups of rice (brown or white) or you can use quinoa (prepared according to the directions on the box)
2 cups of cheddar cheese
1 can of black beans (drained) (they aren't in the picture)

In the crockpot put the 4 pieces of chicken on the bottom and top with the 2 cans of cream of chicken soup. Turn the crockpot on for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low.

Add rice, beans, corn 20 minutes before the cooking time is up. And then when the time is up, add the 2 cups of cheese and mix well.

Hooray, you have a delicious dinner and you barely had to work for it,

A couple tips, if you are really pressed for time, make the rice the night before that way you don't have to cook it and throw the chicken and soup in the crockpot bowl and stick in the the fridge, that way all you have to do in the morning is put in the actual crockpot and turn on. Simple.
