I have a few key recipes that are my go-to’s for busy weeks. Most of those include the crockpot, since who doesn’t like meals that are as easy as throwing food together and letting it cook all day? This is one of the recipes- it takes a total of about 4 ingredients and maybe 2o minutes of prep time.
Crockpot Chicken and Rice
yields: 4 servings
1 package frozen chicken breasts (I use cutlets, so there is about 4-5 pieces of meat)
1 can cream of mushroom soup (or cream of chicken, cream of celery…)
1/2 package of ranch dressing dry mix
1 cup water
1 cup rice
In a prep bowl, whisk together soup and water. Sprinkle the dry ranch mix on top and mix well. Place chicken in the bottom of the crockpot and pour mixture on top. Turn crockpot on low for 6-8 hours. About an hour before serving, sprinkle the dry rice into the crockpot. Turn on high for remainder of cook time.
I love how flexible this meal is- you could add quinoa instead of rice, or just make the chicken. You could add black beans at the end, or any vegetable. You could even make the leftovers into a chicken soup! Look at how many meals this simple little recipe makes! 😉
Have a good weekend!
