Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken and Broccoli Over Rice

Delicious and creamy chicken and broccoli that you can easily throw into the crockpot that the entire family will love!


Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken and Broccoli over rice in a white bowl on a wooden table and a metal fork.

Do you ever make something in the crockpot and think, wow this has been one of the best things that I have made?? Yeah those thoughts came to my mind as I was eating this like a starving pregnant woman. 🙂

This is absolutely fantastic. As a food blogger, you are constantly making and trying new things. This will be made again and again at our house. And when you make something over and over as a food blogger you know that it is good! The cheesy cream sauce of this chicken and broccoli was the best. The flavors maintained though out the cooking process. Then you add in the broccoli and serve it over rice. A delicious meal all in one!

  1. Made this tonight and my daughter and I loved it. She likes pasta, so I served this with penne pasta. She said it reminds her of Panera bread broccoli and cheese soup, but with chicken. Thanks! This is a keeper! the soup cans are 10oz so I used 10oz cream of chicken, 10oz cream of cheese, 10oz chicken broth, and used 6oz sour cream. Either way, you cant mess this recipe up. I used more broccoli and put some hot pepper flakes in it to make it a bit spicy. Thanks!!

  2. I am excited to make this after all of the positive feedback. I am making it for family dinner night this weekend. About how many adults does this feed???

    1. I would say between 4-6 depending on big your serving size is. But it is pretty filling with the rice so I think it would definitely feed 4 adults. 🙂

  3. I made this but used two large chicken breasts. Cut them up and cooked in a skillet. Add to the soup and broth. Was soupy but added two cups of instant rice to crockpot. Tasted it and liked how it tasted without the sour cream or shredded cheese. So left them out and just sprinkled some cheese on top. Cut some calories and tastes just as good.

  4. Found this under weight watchers recipes in Pinterest and there are no nutrition facts or weight watchers points. Any idea what they would be???

  5. Was this recipe made in a 7 quart crock pot? Mine is only 4.5 quarts and I’d really like to make this, should I just cut the recipe in half?

  6. This was fantastic! I never leave a response unless the meal I’ve prepared gets approved for a repeat. I made it tonight and used cream of mushroom soup instead of cheddar soup (as I had none on hand). My husband raved about it, my two boys immediately requested I make this again, and my daughter who’s a picky eater wanted seconds. Super easy to prepare and delicious, thank you so much for this recipe!

  7. Can I cook this in the oven. ? I love this recipe we do it all the time but forgot to put this in this morning and running low on time. ?

  8. I would love to make this recipe. I love my slow cooker. I’m in the UK and cannot find cheddar soup anywhere. Please would you provide a substitute for the cheddar soup. Thank you in advance

  9. This was absolutely delicious! I boiled bow tie pasta on the stove then mixed it into the crock pot to soak up the delicious cheese sauce. Winner winner, chicken dinner!
