Crockpot Cheesy Chicken and Rice is delicious and so easy to prepare! The name says it all – Cheesy Chicken and Rice. Six ingredients is all you need for this crockpot dish. You can’t beat that :-)

Only six ingredients in this yummy slow cooker dinner recipe.

You will start off by adding your chicken and some diced onion to your crockpot. You can cut your onion in big or small pieces however you prefer.

Next you will need a can of cream of chicken soup. Just spoon or dollop it on top. Cover your crockpot and let it cook away for the day.

When it’s almost ready you will need to have some cooked rice. What I like to do is cook my rice the night before and just stick it in the fridge. Then you can dump it in and stir it up and give it a minute or two to get heated. You can also cook your rice soon as you get home, though.

You will end up with an amazing dish of Cheesy Chicken & Rice :-)  I love to serve this with Sour Cream Rolls

  1. Sounds great, my kids will love it – I’m printing it now.


  2. This looks great! I have sadly only used my crockpot once :(

    but that looks like something I could make, especially on a rainy day like today….

  3. This looks very yummy. I hope to try and make it tomorrow:)

  4. Made this tonight since I didn’t get it done yesterday. The whole house smelled yummy and it was yummy. My 3 yr old son liked it also. Lot’s of left overs. Very good and simple!

    • Stephanie@StockpilingMoms says:

      Thanks Kathy! I know how 3 year olds can be sometimes so I am so glad to hear he liked it!

  5. Making this today. Looks good.

  6. Where does the corn come in again?

  7. Ok disregard the corn question. Dyslexia just kicked in!

  8. Brittany M. says:

    I really enjoyed this and I am a very picky eater. I used frozen corn and also added peas. Very tasty. I have a few little things I need to adjust for next time but it’s something that will be on my list of things to make from now on.

  9. Love this easy recipe and it tastes so good!

  10. Just made this tonight! Work fatigue kicked in and I threw everything in together right away! Lol, I hope it turns out okay!

  11. Marilyn B says:

    How would this recipe work with thawed chicken?

  12. This is great! I love when you all have the recipes easy to print, too. thx

  13. Thanks, this gave me a good idea and base for how I’m going to handle dinner toinght. It’s 3:30pm now and I need it done by 6pm. Chicken will be from a can, sub O’Brien potatoes for rice and broccoli for the corn. Pretty much the same on the rest. Great way to start the ideas rolling!! Thanks :-)

  14. This is cooking in my crockpot right now!!! My family doesn’t like onions so we are skipping that part. Hubby is gluten free now so I love that you have some easy recipes for me to whip up and in a crock pot. Keep em coming! Will respond with the verdict after it’s cooked. :) (smells amazing though!)

  15. Is the chicken frozen or defrosted when putting in crock pot?

  16. What a great Crockpot recipe, we will really enjoy your Cheesy Chicken and Rice dish. Hope you are having a great day and thanks so much for sharing your awesome recipe with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!

  17. Looks yummy! But just an fyi most cream of anything soups are not gluten free.

  18. Kathy Hawk says:

    Have this in the crock pot now, smell Delish, think I’m going to cut the chicken up in bite size pieces!

  19. Shaylah says:

    I made this and it was good, but I doubled the cheese and added about a cup of sour cream and it made it amazing!!

  20. 4genius says:

    how big of a crock pot did you use?

  21. Applemama says:

    Could you do or has anyone done this with those great pre-chopped frozen onions? Or frozen corn? Just throw the corn in earlier, maybe?

  22. Love this!! The crock pot is definitely my friend. We may just have this for dinner tonight. Thanks for sharing!

  23. I made this but felt like it needed something a little extra to it to spice it up so I added a tablespoon of french onion dip and it was perfect!

  24. We love this recipe and have been making it often since we found it here. We have experimented and I have some suggestions to change it up if you like: We use frozen cooked rice. It’s in the frozen food aisle with the frozen veggies – just throw it in the last 15 minutes of cooking with the frozen mixed veggies. We use the brown rice and we also use the fat free Cream of Chicken, Cream of Celery or Cream of Mushroom (my fave). My 6yr old picky eater granddaughter LOVES this dish. I have passed this along to many newlyweds as an easy, yummy dinner! Thank you for this.

  25. Making this now. Can I add uncooked rice when I put everything else in

  26. sahm2girls says:

    how much chicken would you say you used by weight? 1 Lb or 2? Different stores around me seem to carry different sized breasts. 1Lb at one store might be 2 large pieces while a pound at a different store would be 4 Small ones.

  27. Would you say that’s 1 pound of chicken or two?

  28. I’m going to spice it up a bit by adding two cans enchilada sauce, a can of refried beans & some cilantro. Then maybe garnishing it with sour cream & serving with tortillas. I got the enchilada sauce, refried beans & cilantro idea from a casserole dish on pintrest. I’m preparing now, it should be yummy!

  29. I’m assuming you shred the chicken after cooking?

  30. I see you add cream of chicken soup. Do you add the can of water with that? I don’t see any other liquid being added.

  31. Found your “8 Frozen Meals in 2 hours” recipes with the shopping list (most excellent – except could you add “Ziplock bags” to the list so idiots like me will remember to buy those too?) – then saw this recipe in the sidebar. Can this be prepped and frozen in a Ziplock bag, thawed, and then cooked in crockpot? I wondered if it would mess up the consistency. Thank you for all of your work. Looking forward to trying other freezer meals for my big, busy family!

    • Melissa@StockpilingMoms says:

      You don’t want to freeze the rice but you could prep all an d then add your rice when you put it in the crockpot. Great tip about the ziplocs!

  32. I have made this and it was a huge hit! This is definitely a keeper :)

  33. Cooking this awesome looking dish now! Can’t wait for my 2 1/2 year old to try! too!

  34. I made this today, it was good but could have been better. Too much onion for my taste, I’d say maybe 1/2 an onion, but I know to cut back next time.
