  • 1.5 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1 10.5 oz can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 5 oz yellow rice, cooked
  • 1.5 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper


  • Pour chicken broth and cream of chicken soup into slow cooker. Add in the chicken. 
  • Cover and cook for 3-4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low. Once cooked, remove chicken and shred with a fork. Place chicken back in slow cooker. 
  • Add cooked rice and cheese to the slow cooker and stir. Season with salt and pepper.


  • Rice: For this recipe I decided to use yellow rice. I love the flavor it adds, especially with the cheese. You could also use cooked white or brown long grain rice. I make my rice using a rice cooker about 30 minutes before I am going to serve the dish.
  • Veggies: Add in some veggies for added nutrients and color. When I make this dish I typically serve it with a salad or steamed broccoli. You could mix in chopped steamed broccoli into the dish, along with corn or cooked carrots. It is a good way to sneak in some vegetables.
  • Cheese: It's no secret that I love cheese so for this recipe I use 1.5 cups. Feel free to cut back on the amount if you don't like your dishes super cheesy.
