Stupid Easy

It's been a while since I've blogged about a meal.  And it's not that I haven't been cooking.  Lord knows I've cooked more in the last 9 months than I have in my entire life!  I just forget to blog about it!!  But I had to make sure to blog about the meal I made tonight.  

It was STUPID EASY!  It's called Crockpot Cheesy Chicken and Rice.  Now, for you health nuts...this probably isn't the dish for you.  Most of the time I really do try to keep things relatively healthy in my kitchen, but this wasn't one of those times.

I found this recipe on Pinterest (oh, how I love thee!).  It's from the blog Southern Plate.  

And now you'll see what I mean when I said it was easy.  Literally the hardest part was cutting up an onion.
  1. Put 3-4 chicken breasts in a crockpot.
  2. Put your diced onion on top (I only used half an onion).
  3. Dump a can of cream of chicken soup on top.
  4. Cook for 3-4 hours on low or 7-8 hours on high (I did 7-8 hours).
  5. When you have 30-40 minutes left on the chicken (or you can even do it the night before and throw it in the fridge), cook the Zataran's Yellow Rice Mix according to the directions.
  6. Once the rice is ready and the chicken is finished, dump the rice, cheese and a drained can of corn in the crock pot and mix it all up.  (I cut/smooshed the chicken up with a wooden spoon as I mixed).
You're finished!!  And it's delish!!

The finished product
Michael likes it!!  I was lazy and just fixed green beans to accompany our meal.
The proof is in the empty plate!

Here's the recipe directly from Southern Plate!


  1. Should the chicken be thawed before putting it in the crock pot? Or can you use frozen chicken?

  2. I used mostly thawed chicken. :-) I forgot to thaw mine out before this morning when I needed it in the crock pot. I was wondering the same thing this morning when I realized I only had frozen chicken. From what I could tell, the original recipe was with thawed chicken. But if you do it with frozen chicken and it works, please let me know!!!!
