Crockpot Chicken & Rice

If you are looking for a simple, wholesome meal that you can toss in your crockpot in the morning, this is the recipe for you. 

While this recipe is naturally gluten free, adding wild rice adds extra flavor and nutrients to this dinner. 

Crockpot-cooked chicken is incredibly moist, and the rice is delicious – soft and creamy.

Crockpot Chicken & Rice – Adapted from Gluten-Free Homemaker
  • 2 C chicken broth
  • 1 tsp. poultry seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • Sea Salt
  • Parsley
  • 2 T minced onion
  • 1 1/2 C brown rice
  • 1/2 C wild rice
  • 8 oz. mushrooms, sliced
  • 3-4 chicken breasts
  • 1 recipe cream of chicken soup

Begin by lightly greasing the crockpot.  Add in the wild rice and brown rice to the bottom of the insert. 

Prepare the cream of chicken soup.

Add in 1 tsp. poultry seasoning.  Stir. 

Meanwhile, sprinkle the minced onion over the rice and arrange the sliced mushrooms over the top of the rice.  Pour over the 2 C chicken broth. 

Then, pour in the cream soup, reserving about 1/2 C. 

Add the thawed chicken breasts over the top.  Season them with salt and pepper, a bit of garlic powder, if you are so inclined, and additional poultry seasoning. 

Pour the remaining 1/2 C chicken soup over the top. 

Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4. 

Serve warm!

Leftovers reheat nicely too!


  1. Oh So Yummy! I will be making this! Thank you SO MUCH once again for another one of your recipes...
    Have a wonderful week,

  2. I love wild rice!! This looks like a simple but delicious recipe.

  3. Yum! That looks so delicious! I'm wanting a healthy sized serving right now!! Gonna make this one soon!

  4. I made this yesterday but with chicken chunks instead of whole breasts (it was what I already had on hand). Amazing! My whole family enjoyed it and can't wait to have it again. Thanks for the great recipe!

  5. My crockpot hates me :( Tried this Friday and overcooked it (organic chicken and all!) so it will have to wait for another time


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
