Crock Pot Chicken & Rice

This is our new very favorite/easy crock pot chicken & rice recipe  yum!  I found it on Pintrest.  If you are looking for a great Crock Pot recipe for this fall this is the one!


2-4 frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts

1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese (let sit out to soften)

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 pkg. italian dressing seasoning (the dried kind in the packet)


Stir the cream cheese, cream of chicken, and seasoning together in the crockpot.  I actually start it on low and let them sit in there for about 30 min so the cream cheese is softer to stir. Put the frozen (because i'm lazy) chicken in and cover with the mix. Cook on high 4-6 hours or until the chicken is cooked and fall-apart-tender. After the first two hours when the chicken is softer I cut it up into strips for easier eating. How easy is that!?

Cook the rice in a pot and smother with chicken mixture! The italian seasoning is the secret ingredient! So yum! and so easy!
