Crockpot Chicken, Rice, and Mushrooms

This is another recipe from the Crockpot queen herself. This is the first time I’ve made rice in the crockpot. It came out a little mushy. We weren’t huge fans of the outcome mostly due to that fact. I would definitely add more pepper to the soup mixture and possibly some garlic next time.

Crockpot Chicken, Rice, and Mushrooms – from A Year of Crockpotting
1 1/2 cups of brown rice
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 cups milk, divided – I used soy
3/4 cup flour – I used 1 cup white flour + 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 small yellow onion, diced
8 oz sliced mushrooms – I used 8 oz baby bellas and 8 oz white mushrooms (we like mushrooms)
3-4 chicken breast halves or equivalent parts
1/2 tsp onion powder – I forgot this, but did add some garlic salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp paprika

Combine all of the chicken broth (1 1/2 cups – I used the whole can ~2 cups) and 1/2 cup of milk in a sauce pan and heat over medium heat on the stove. In a separate bowl, whisk the remaining 1 cup of milk with 3/4 cup flour.

When the broth and milk have begun to boil, reduce heat, and slowly stir in the milk and flour mixture. When everything is fully incorporated, set the pot aside to cool.

Spray the inside of your crockpot with cooking spray.

Add the rice and seasonings to your crock. Chop up the onion, and add it with the mushrooms. Stir in your broth, flour, and milk mixture. The rice will turn a bit red from the paprika.

Lay the chicken pieces on top.

Cover and cook on high for 4 hours, or low for about 8.

When you take the lid off of the crockpot, stir the rice. If the rice is fully cooked and you have extra liquid, keep the lid off for about 15 minutes. The liquid will absorb quickly.

    Perfect! I crave sugar cookies a lot but just can’t handle the rolling out process sometimes.

    These look yummy! My kids are always asking me to make sugar cookies and I start out strong and by the end am regretting making them. This may be the perfect tradeoff.

    Yum! These look delicious and way easier than frosting individual cookies!

    What a great idea – I rarely take the time to make cookies since bars are so much faster and just as tasty. I love all the sprinkles too 🙂

    Anyone who is thinking about making these definitely should. They’re seriously SO GOOD. I just made them Sunday and I’m making them again for Easter.

    Yum, I’ve made these before. They are excellent and soooo much easier. Yours looks good. I’m going to try them with buttercream instead of cream cheese frosting next time.

    I think it will be better to put up the size of the baking pan too.
    Thank you very much for the recipe. =D
