Easy Crock Pot Chicken Recipe

This chicken and broccoli crock pot recipe is one of our very favorites, especially for Sunday dinner!  I’m such a fan of quick fix simple family dinner ideas. This Creamy Crock Pot Chicken Broccoli Over Rice has been a family favorite crock pot recipe for years. It literally takes 5 minutes to get everything in the crock pot…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.
