Cheesy Chicken crock pot recipe

Creamy Crock Pot Chicken and Broccoli over Rice
(adapted from pickypalate.com)
  • 2 boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can cheddar soup
  • 8 oz chicken broth
  • ¼ teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic salt seasoning
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 2-3 cups broccoli florets, lightly steamed, just fork tender
  • shredded cheddar cheese on top (optional)

1. Place soups, chicken broth, Cajun and garlic seasoning into a crock pot over low heat. Whisk until smooth. Place chicken in, pressing to the bottom. Cover lid and cook on low for 6 hours or on high for 3 hours.

2. When chicken is cooked, use 2 forks to shred into bite size pieces. Stir in sour cream and broccoli.

3. Serve over steamed rice and sprinkle with cheese.

This was really good! More flavor than I thought it would have. All the kids ate it happily, which is always a surprise. The cajun seasoning added just a nice zest, very subtle but interesting.

I like all creamy chicken and rice combos and enjoyed this one as well. I didn't really taste the cajun seasoning so it didn't have as much of a distinct flavor as I was expecting. Is this because I used brown rice (aren't I fun?) and it seems to be a little more dominating than white?
