Slow Cooker Crack Chicken & Rice

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs skinless boneless chicken breasts (about 4 chicken breasts)
  • 1 pound bacon cooked and chopped
  • 2 (10.75-oz) cans cream of chicken
  • 1 (1-oz) package Ranch Dressing Mix, or to taste
  • 1¾ cups milk
  • 1 cup regular long-grain rice
  • 1½ cups shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions:

  1. Spray the insert of the slow cooker with cooking spray. Place chicken in the bottom.
  2. Mix together the cream of chicken soup, bacon, ranch dressing mix, half of the cheese, milk, and regular rice. Pour over chicken. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top of rice mixture.
  3. Cover slow cooker and cook on HIGH for 3 or 4 hours.
  4. Remove chicken from slow cooker and chop. Place back in the slow cooker and stir to combine.
  5. If rice mixture is too thick, add water, chicken broth or additional milk to thin out.

Notes:

  • Do not cook rice in advance. I used Great Value Long-Grain Rice.
  • I used a Hamilton Beach 6-qt Slow Cooker. It took 3 1/2 hours.
  • The rice will not be light and fluffy like plain cooked rice. The rice is soft. This is a casserole. The mixture will be somewhat thick.
  • Can use frozen chicken breasts.
  • Can substitute turkey bacon.
