Dinner

This Creamy Crockpot Chicken and Broccoli Over Rice is the perfect weeknight slow cooked meal that the whole family will love!

Creamy Crockpot Chicken and Broccoli over Rice

Welcome to Picky Palate!  If you are coming from Pinterest, it’s great to have you :)

I’m such a fan of quick fix simple family dinner ideas.  This has been a family favorite crockpot recipe for years.

It literally takes 5 minutes to get everything in the crockpot…you close the lid and forget about it for a few hours.

Serve this saucy chicken and broccoli over steamed rice and dinner is served.  This recipe makes for great leftovers too.  We’ve even had the chicken inside burritos the next day or over toast.  Lots of options.

Creamy Crockpot Chicken and Broccoli over Rice

Here are your ingredients.  Simple simple!!  You’ll add everything but the broccoli and sour cream to the crockpot. Cook on high for 3 hours or low for 6.  Right before serving you will add your sour cream and steamed broccoli.  Love this dinner!

Don’t like using canned soup? Here’s an option for my Homemade Cheese Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups finely shredded mild cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. To prepare roux, melt butter into a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once melted whisk in flour, salt and pepper. Stir and cook for 3-4 minutes until color of roux will gets slightly darker. Slowly whisk in broth, stirring continuously until thickened, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat to a simmer and stir in cheese until melted.
  2. Please note, if you choose the homemade sauce, you have to prepare it first, you can’t just add all of the ingredients to the crockpot. You’ll also cook your chicken breast in the broth first, shred then add the homemade cheese sauce. Before serving add sour cream and steamed broccoli.

    I have all the ingredients I the crock pot for dinner tonight. It looks great! However, I wish you would have edited your ingredient list to reflect your correction in the comments. It want until after I bought and used two extra 10oz cans of soups to make the 14oz that I saw your comment about 14oz being incorrect. It would have saved me money and wasted food had you corrected the recipe.

    Anyway, hope this is as good as it looks!

    I made this tonight and mine turned out thin. Might need to cut back on the chicken broth. Also, when I put the sour cream in it didnt seem like it melted all the way. I can still see it in the sauce. Is it suppose to do this?

    Thanks for this recipe, my 15 month old devoured it and he’s been in an “I don’t want to eat anything” phase!

      Oh I hate that phase. My 17 month old occasionally spits out something he’s had before. I think he hates the texture. We caught on that he eats more when doing it himself. Glad yours liked it.

    This looks so good and I was in a rush to get started on this and I stirred in half the sour cream in with the soups. Will it be ok?

    Hi. Just saw this on Pinterest. Looks so good and I’d really like to make it, but can it be made without using 1 can of cheddar soup? Could I just add shredded cheddar cheese instead, do you think- or maybe just use 2 cans of cream of chicken and throw in some shredded cheddar instead? I’m thinking it’ll work, but I’d like your opinion. Do you think it’s the cheddar soup that “makes” it?

    Is chicken broth just chicken stock??
