Crock Pot Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice

I love using my crock pot to make dinner. That way, I can do the dinner preparations in the morning, put everything in the slow cooker, let it simmer away all day, and come home later to a delicious, ready to serve, meal.

Some crock pot recipes require a bit of prep work, to cut and brown meat and/or to chop and saute vegetables. Other crock pot recipes, require minimal prep, you just add the ingredients to the slow cooker, set it and go. This Crock Pot Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice is of the latter, minimal prep variety.


I like to have both types of crock pot recipes in my repertoire, because sometimes I have the time for a lot of prep work, and sometimes, I do not.

    Fantastic dish Joy … I used a slow cooker bag to make the cleanup even easier, and tried a wild rice/quinoa mix. The chicken stayed so moist. Definitely a keeper.
