Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups white rice
  • 3 cups chicken stock low sodium
  • 2 medium carrots diced
  • 1 small yellow onion diced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pound chicken breasts diced
  • 10 ounces condensed cream of mushroom soup (you can also use condensed cream of chicken soup - see the post for a homemade recipe)
  • 1 cup frozen peas

Instructions

  • Spray your crockpot liberally with cooking spray.
  • In the base of your slow cooker combine the rice, diced chicken, chicken stock, carrots, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper.
  • Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours (see note). This recipe works best if you are able to stir it once or twice while cooking.
  • At the end of the cooking time, stir in the condensed soup, and the frozen peas. The peas will quickly come to temperature and be perfect.

Notes

The cooking time of this recipe varies from crockpot to crockpot. If at four hours the rice is still hard, you will need to cook it for longer before adding the peas.
