Crock Pot Chicken & Rice

Monday, February 13, 2012

I have many variations of this meal but here is how we are going to throw down today...

First, put some chicken boobs in your crock pot. (darn it, I was going to have a photo right here, but I totally forgot to take it...pretend you see chicken breasts).

Done.

Next, open a few cans and containers and dump them on top of your boobs (drain the beans first!)

That would be a can of black beans, a can of diced tomatoes, a can of kidney beans (I would use pinto...but was out!) salsa (1 cup) and a couple table spoons of taco seasoning. Corn is good, but I was out of that too!

Now, there is one can missing from this photo....cream of chicken soup. It's missing because I'm going to make some homemade cream of chicken soup! Why go to the trouble?
CHICKEN STOCK, WATER, MODIFIED FOOD STARCH, CHICKEN MEAT, MALTODEXTRIN, CREAM (MILK), CONTAINS LESS THAN 1% OF: WHEAT FLOUR, VEGETABLE OIL, SOY PROTEIN CONCENTRATE, CORNSTARCH, SALT, POTASSIUM CHLORIDE, LOWER SODIUM NATURAL SEA SALT, FLAVORING, MODIFIED FOOD STARCH, CHICKEN FAT, YEAST EXTRACT, DISODIUM GUANYLATE, DISODIUM INOSINATE, SODIUM PHOSPHATE, SOY PROTEIN ISOLATE, SPICE, BETA CAROTENE (FOR COLOR), DEHYDRATED CHICKEN.
Um....wow that's a lot of stuff in that little can! Instead, I shall use this and freeze 1/2 for another day (each batch makes two cans). It contains:
Chicken broth, poultry seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper, salt, parsley, paprika, milk & flour
I know how to pronounce ALL of those ingredients!

Ok, back on track!!! So dump the homemade cream of chicken soup on top of everything else, give it a quick stir, put the lid on your magical crock pot, set on low for 6-8 hours and go do something fabulous while your slow cooker does all the work.

Oh how I love thee!

Side note: I know I said you can put pretty much anything in a crock pot and it will taste fantastic....but PLEASE do not try this theory with babies....even if you add A1.

Goodness is this child cute! 
Or kitties....

Ok...that's just not sanitary!!!!

*Fast Forward 6-8 hours*

Make up some brown rice (or use leftovers). Stir in the cooked rice about 30 minutes before it is done cooking. I know it will look a little soupy...but the rice will totally take care of that!!! 

Serve in bowls with crushed tortilla chips and a dollop of sour cream.

mmmmmmm....do you smell that? That is heaven in a bowl!
