This is such an easy casserole to make in the crockpot with chicken, broccoli, and rice. It combines mouthwatering moist chicken and flavorful broccoli, covered with creamy cheese making it a delicious comfort food that is sure to become a favorite crockpot recipe.

How to Make Chicken, Broccoli, and Rice Casserole in a Crockpot

This slow cooker creamy chicken and broccoli casserole can be made in many different ways. These are the steps I followed so you can make it too. Be sure to check my tips below to see all the other options you might want to use to make this casserole.

1. Spray your crockpot with non-stick spray for easy cleanup or use disposable crockpot liners.

2. Cook the chicken on high for a few hours then use the liquid for my 2 cups of chicken broth. Otherwise, you can add two cups of chicken broth to already cooked chicken.

3. Add to the chicken all the rest of the ingredients except the broccoli and cheese.

4. Cook on high for 3 hours or on low for 6 hours. 

5. In the last hour of cooking, add in the broccoli and two cups of shredded cheddar cheese. You can add extra cheese if you like. 

6. Replace the lid, unplug the crockpot, and let it sit for an hour. The cheese will melt and the broccoli will heat through and be perfectly crips and delicious.

Tips for Making Rice with Chicken and Broccoli in a Crockpot

This easy crockpot chicken and rice is a great recipe, but you can improve it with these easy tips.

1. Make your own cream of chicken soup with my homemade recipe or substitute with 2 cups of sour cream and a little bit of butter.

2. Try sprinkling a bit of parmesan cheese on top in the last few minutes. 

3. Do not substitute minute rice as it will not work as well.

4. Try adding a tablespoon of Dijon mustard for a unique flavor kick. 

5. Use boneless, skinless chicken breasts.

6. I like to batch-cook chicken and keep it ready in the freezer. Then it’s ready to go for these easy meals.

7. You can make this in the Instant Pot with my Chicken, Broccoli, Cheese, and Rice Instant Pot Casserole.

8. Add a side dish like fresh fruit or salad.

9. Be sure to add this family dinner to your slow cooker meals list so you can make it on repeat.

Serving Suggestions

This cheesy broccoli and tender chicken and rice recipe is delicious on its own, or you can add a side or dessert. An easy way to stretch a meal for a large family or unexpected company is to add a side, bread, or dessert. Try adding one of these delicious recipes. 

Storing Leftovers

To store this slow cooker cheesy chicken and broccoli casserole for the next day, allow it to cool down to room temperature after baking. Then, transfer the leftovers into an airtight container before refrigerating. This is one of the best ways to maintain its freshness and flavor for a delicious meal later on.
