Crock Pot Cheesy Chicken and Rice

I have another super easy Crock Pot recipe for you today! This is one I have been making for years. I first discovered it on Pinterest here. I have made it so many times I can’t even remember a time it wasn’t in our regular rotation. My husband refers to it as “the yellow thing” because it is a very yellow dish. The rice, corn and cheese all make for a lot of yellow. My girls love it too, they gobble it up. For some reason we started eating it with lime Tostinos tortilla chips and now we always have those with it. It doesn’t really fit traditionally but we love the added twist by dipping it in there. Weird? maybe. Delicious? yes.

As always I’m using my trusty turquoise crock pot. Here.  And don’t forget your liners for easy cleanup!

Cheesy chicken rice

What you need: 

4-6 Chicken Tenderloins

1 can cream of chicken soup

3/4  cup chopped (or frozen) onion

1 box of Zatarain’s yellow rice ,cooked

1 cup of shredded cheese

1 15 oz can of corn, drained

1//Place your chicken in the bottom of the crock pot and dump the onion and cream of chicken soup on top. My chicken is almost always frozen. I do this in the morning and turn it on low for 6-7  hours. When it’s done I take 2 forks and shred it up.

2//cook the rice according to package directions. Mix the rice, corn and cheese in with the shredded chicken. I have also used frozen corn many times. Just allow extra time to cook after mixing.

It doesn’t make for a beautiful dish but believe me it is very good. Give it a try! Let me know if you do!
