Slow Cooker Cheesy Chicken and Rice


The best crockpot chicken and cheesy rice recipe I have come across!

Prep Time:
15 mins
Cook Time:
3 hrs
Total Time:
3 hrs 15 mins


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • 1 large sweet onion, chopped

  • 1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup

  • 2 ½ cups water

  • 1 (8 ounce) package yellow rice mix (such as Zatarain's®)

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. Place chicken in the bottom of a slow cooker. Scatter onion over the top. Cover with condensed soup.

  2. Cook on Low for 7 to 8 hours or High for 3 to 4 hours.

  3. When chicken is almost finished cooking, combine water, rice mix, and butter in a 2-quart saucepan until well blended. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender, about 25 minutes.

  4. Stir cooked rice, corn, and Cheddar cheese into the slow cooker a few minutes before serving. Serve hot.


You can use margarine instead of butter for the rice.

You can use fat-free cream of chicken soup instead of regular.
